AWP | Atheris appeared in the Workshop on October 30, 2018, and was added to the game on March 14, 2019, as part of The Prisma Collection, which was released alongside the “Seeing the Light” update. The skin was created by Graff.
The body of the rifle is painted black and adorned with an image of an African tree viper Atheris, made in various shades of blue and green. The scope is complemented with a pattern resembling snake scales.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 1.00, which makes AWP | Atheris available in all conditions. The first abrasions appear on the buttstock and the handguard in Field-Tested condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the entire body of the weapon has significant abrasions, the black background is almost completely peeled.
The pattern index does not affect the appearance of the skin.
The quality of AWP | Atheris is Restricted. The skin has a StatTrak option.
AWP | Atheris became popular after the release and remains in demand today. Many players prefer this skin at high Float Values.
