comment What does っす at the end of a sentence mean?
That's true, but it's also worth noting that the etymology of おっす is almost certainly from a contraction of おはようございます (gogen ascribes it to pre-war martial art schools in Kyoto). One shouldn't confuse etymology with current usage, of course.

It was indeed a typo, thanks. Just goes to show how confusing this construction can be sometimes.
