Being a pump-action shotgun, it can easily kill in a single shot, but it also has very low range.

In singleplayer, the '''SPAS-12 Combat''' can be found on certain levels as a [[Collectible Weapons|collectible]] or used by enemies. It can be found with either shells or [[slugs]]. The plain version of this weapon can only be found in [[Heart of Darkness]] as a collectible, found before getting on the boat following the first firefight, where it is laying next to a shack next to the river. The version with the slugs can be found in [[Upriver]]. After Redford tells you to follow him to flank the MG, up the stairs to the right you will find it next to a wall.

In multiplayer, the SPAS-12 is unlocked at level 18. It is the third shotgun unlocked. It also features high power, low accuracy and short range like all pump-action shotguns. It can be used by any class, like the rest of the shotguns. Slugs change its damage to about that of a sniper rifle, but remove the range limits of the buckshot, and make it usable at medium-long range, but make it somewhat less effective up close, as there is a lower chance of hitting an opponent. This weapon is highly effective in [[Arica Harbor#Conquest|Arica Harbor Conquest]] or [[Cold War (Multiplayer)|Cold War]], due to the small, tight and infantry-oriented combat seen on those maps.

The '''SPAS-12 '''returns in ''Battlefield Play4Free''. It remains a pump-action shotgun. However, it has usable iron sights and an 8-round tube magazine by default. It also takes several seconds to swap to, as the player's character will unfold the stock, although this is only aesthetic and the player is still able to shoot during the animation. It features high power, short range and can be used by any class, like any other shotgun. Its one-shot kill range is very short, so it should be used in CQC maps like [[Sharqi]].

The SPAS-12 (English: Sporting Purpose Automatic Shotgun-12) is a select-fire semi-automatic/pump-action shotgun that was produced by the Italian arms developer Franchi. It's well known for its iconic folding stock, which folds upward and rests on top of the weapon itself. Due to its high production cost and its complexity, as well as importation bans, the SPAS-12 ceased production in 2000. Despite this, it is still an iconic shotgun for its rugged appearance.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat

In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat's singleplayer, the SPAS-12 is issued to NATO engineer soldiers. It has high power, short range and an 8 shell capacity. It is semi-automatic and is a very good close-quarters weapon, and even for medium ranges where it can kill an enemy in 3 shots at around 80 feet away. It is the only semi-automatic shotgun in the game, making it more useful than shotguns of the other factions.

In multiplayer, the SPAS-12 is featured as the main weapon of the USMC's Engineer Kit. It has a short range but very high power.



Battlefield: Bad Company

"Legendary Italian combat shotgun with iconic folding stock. Manufacturing stopped in 2000. "

— In game description


In singleplayer, the SPAS12 can be found off of dead mercenaries (around when the player attacks the docks in Acta Non Verba) or as a collectible in Crossing Over.

In multiplayer, it is issued to the Demolitionkit as an unlockable. It has better handling at the expense of lower accuracy due to its shorter barrel. This means that it has the largest cross hairs of all shotguns. It has an 8 shell capacity and each must be manually loaded. Being a pump-action shotgun, it can easily kill in a single shot, but it also has very low range.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

"Designed for police and military applications, the SPAS 12 is a versatile and reliable pump action shotgun. It's been in service for over 37 years and is still a favorite among special ops."

— In-game description


In singleplayer, the SPAS-12 Combat can be found on certain levels as a collectible or used by enemies. It can be found with either buckshot or slugs. The plain version of this weapon can only be found in Heart of Darkness as a collectible, found before getting on the boat following the first firefight, where it is laying next to a shack next to the river. The version with the slugs can be found in Upriver. After Redford tells you to follow him to flank the MG, up the stairs to the right you will find it next to a wall.

In multiplayer, the SPAS-12 is unlocked at level 18. It is the third shotgun unlocked. It also features high power, low accuracy and short range like all pump-action shotguns. It can be used by any class, like the rest of the shotguns. Slugs change its damage to about that of a sniper rifle, but remove the range limits of the buckshot, and make it usable at medium-long range, but make it somewhat less effective up close, as there is a lower chance of hitting an opponent. This weapon is highly effective in Arica Harbor Conquest or Cold War, due to the small, tight and infantry-oriented combat seen on those maps.

Battlefield Play4Free

SPAS-12

The SPAS-12 returns in Battlefield Play4Free. It remains a pump-action shotgun. However, it has usable iron sights and an 8-round tube magazine by default. It also takes several seconds to swap to, as the player's character will unfold the stock, although this is only aesthetic and the player is still able to shoot during the animation. It features high power, short range and can be used by any class, like any other shotgun. Its one-shot kill range is very short, so it should be used in CQC maps like Sharqi.

The SPAS actually does the exact same damage as the 870 Combat with the same rate of fire resulting in a personal preference of choosing between these guns.

Veteran's SPAS-12

The Veteran's SPAS-12 features a higher damage over the standard SPAS-12, increasing the one shot kill chances, as well as a larger magazine of 10 rounds. These benefits come at a higher cost of 560 P4F Funds for unlimited use. The gun's appearance is very rugged and shows heavy use.



Elite's SPAS-12

The Elite's SPAS-12 does even more damage per pellet than the Veteran's version and has a larger magazine of 12 rounds to further increase its usefulness. The cost of this gun is 790 P4F Funds for unlimited use or 3000 PF4 Credits per day. The weapon has a very clean appearance, like all of the elite weapons, and sports a tan paint scheme on the pistol grip and handguard.

Battlefield 3

The SPAS-12 is a pump action shotgun available with the purchase of the Battlefield 3 DLC Close Quarters.

The SPAS-12 is the second pump action shotgun available in Battlefield 3. It is similar to the 870MCS in its operation (it is pump action) but it pumps slightly faster, and has slightly less pellet spread, in exchange for one less pellet per shot.

To unlock the SPAS-12, players must complete the "These Hurt Too" assignment. The requirements for this assignment are:

  • 20 kills with pistols
  • 20 kills with shotguns

The SPAS-12 is also seen on the USAS-12 Profiency Dog tag in Battlefield 3.

Trivia

  • In Battlefield: Bad Company the SPAS-12 can be shot without pumping by holding the L1/LT/F then shooting and quickly holding the L1/LT/F again. This has no effect on the rate of fire.
  • In the Bad Company series it has a noticably shorter barrel than in other Battlefield installments.
  • In Battlefield Bad Company 2 the kit select screen of the US Engineer shows him holding a SPAS-12 with the stock extended, as in Battlefield 3.
  • In Battlefield 3, the USAS-12 Profiency Dog Tag shows a SPAS-12 instead of the USAS. This mistake has not been corrected by the release of the Close Quarters Expansion Pack.
  • The USAS-12 Profiency Dog Tag shows the SPAS-12 with its stock folded, like in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
  • In BF3, the SPAS-12 has the tightest pellet cone of all shotguns at a 2.5m radius.
