- — Description.
The AA12 Automatic Shotgun is a secret SPEC shotgun available for purchase once every other SPEC weapons are unlocked.
The AA12 Automatic Shotgun is one of the most powerful shotgun in the game. It boasts an excellent mix of extremely low recoil, high firerate and accuracy for a shotgun. As with any other shotgun, it has high damage, medium reload speed, penetration and short effective range comparing to other weapons. However, its most powerful feature is a much tighter pellet spread than other shotguns, and the use of a more-than-generous high capacity 30 rounds magazine. Despite the low ammunition reserve, with proper trigger discipline, this weapon has almost no competition in close range combat.
"AA12 Automatic Shotgun equipped with explosive FRAG12 ammunition. Actively used by top USEC elites for tactical breaching."
- — Description.
AA12 W-Task is 15 LegendaryKills. Completion of the W-Task will replace its 12 gauge buckshot ammo with explosive FRAG12 rounds and renaming the weapon to AA12 FRAG12 Demolition. This is an extremely powerful task that greatly increases the effectiveness of the weapon with longer range capability, accuracy, penetration and increased-damage explosive rounds that deal splash damage out to 2 metres radius. However, the grenade rounds are not hitscan, requiring the operator to compensate from muzzle velocity and bullet drop. No known player was able to complete this extremely difficult task.

The original design of the weapon was the basis of several later weapons, including the USAS-12 combat shotgun.
The Saiga Full Auto in real life has a fire-rate similar to a AK rifle, however in game it ties with the lower firerate of the AA12.
