AWP | Phobos appeared in the Workshop on May 27, 2016, and was added to the game on June 15, 2016, as part of The Gamma Collection, which was released alongside the “Gamma Exposure” update. The skin was created by Apel.
The skin is made in a futuristic design resembling a blaster. According to the author, the design of AWP | Phobos was inspired by the movie "Blade Runner". The central part of the rifle is paneled with dark green metal plates. A pattern of black and yellow diagonal stripes is located on the handguard, the scope and the back part of the buttstock. The design is complemented by numerous indicators, buttons, and switches. The barrel remains unpainted.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 0.40, which makes AWP | Phobos available in all conditions except Battle-Scarred. The first abrasions are present on the body of the rifle already in Factory New condition. At levels of wear close to the maximum, the number of abrasions slightly increases, the skin becomes noticeably darker.
The pattern index does not affect the appearance of the skin.
The quality of AWP| Phobos is Restricted. The skin has a StatTrak option.
AWP | Phobos is not on the list of popular skins, but it has a certain number of fans among players, who prefer futuristic design.
