I was playing counterstrike today and in our server our admin said that a guy had a different AWP model and animation. He was just fragging everyone.
Does it affect the game or was he just good?

If you are talking about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it's just a joke. The skins in CS:GO have NO influence on any stats of the weapon.
But if he is using custom skins in e.g. Counter-Strike: Source it is possible to get an advantage. For example you could have a scout skin with a laser pointer, marking the middle of your screen, which helps to be accurate when "no-scoping". Seen that kind of skins in the past.
There is a lot of debate on this. Some say that they do but it is invisible in the stats listing whereas others say that it is purely cosmetic ( and a waste of money). As of now valve have yet to put this matter to rest so I would say that it is probably the fact that he has a certain skin makes him play better as it has a physiological effect but no-one can be sure. Even I am not.
