Trivia Edit

  • The SPAS-12 is used by Georgian special forces commandos, Nikoladze's henchmen and CIA Security officers in the original Splinter Cell
  • The SPAS-12 is used by one of the prison guards in Double Agent (next gen version). 
  • A SPAS-12 is seen in the armory of JBA HQ, but no one uses it in the entire game. 
  • The SPAS-12 in Conviction can only be obtained by inputting codes from the Limited Collector's Edition, Purchasing the PRIMA Official digital walkthrough/guide, or from pre-ordering at GameStop
  • Realistically, a shotgun would only have a scope if it was shooting slugs and not buckshot, as it will not be practical at range.
  • The SPAS-12 in Conviction actually does very little damage due to the fact that it takes 2-3 shots to kill at close range and 4-5 at long range.
  • The SPAS-12 in Conviction does not have pump-action mode, this makes sense as its recommended by the manufacturer to fire semi-auto if using military-grade shotgun shells.
  • Usually one pellet will go completely straight, making it possible to get headshots at distance with the scope.
