Basics Edit

The AA-12 is one of the strongest shotguns in the game. It and the Sawed-off Shotgun are the only shotguns with the Akimbo upgrade, and it, the M1014 and the USAS-12 being the only shotguns capable of being fully-automatic.

Notes Edit

  • The base cyclic DPS is 5,600 (Marksman8,400).
    • The max cyclic DPS is 8,120 (Marksman12,180).
      • With Akimbo the cyclic DPS is 16,240 (Marksman24,360).
  • The firing runtime is 4 seconds.
  • The base cyclic ammo consumption rate is 10 ammo units per second.
    • With Akimbo the cyclic ammo consumption rate is 20 ammo units per second.

Strategies Edit

  • The AA-12 is the best gun in the game for hit money. Use it if obtaining cash is a goal.
  • On the other hand, its DPS is below average for its cost and it has a high ammo consumption rate.
  • Steady Aim is a recommended perk to maintain accuracy so that most of your bullets connect. Bullet Storm is a neat perk to rack up cash fast.
  • The discord community refer to this as the money printer. BRRRRRRRRR(cash printing noises)
  • Level 4 deep pierce perk + 6 level 5 piercing mods means 1.896 pierce, or let's just say pseudo-2 pierce. This'll mean nearly halved ammo consumption, furthering OPing this shotgun.

Trivia Edit

  • The AA-12 is the only innately fully automatic shotgun in the game.
    • The other two potential shotguns, the M1014 and the USAS-12, must be upgraded with Custom Receiver to be fully automatic.
  • The AA-12 used to do 140 damage per pellet and fire 8 pellets per shot. These were changed to the current stats.
