"This Russian semi-automatic shotgun is one of the most popular shotguns for modification in the world. Its main feature is the ability to conduct semi-automatic fire with 12 gauge ammunition."
- — Description.
The Saiga-12K is a Tier 4 semi-automatic shotgun.
The Saiga is the second semi-automatic shotgun players will be able to buy after the double-barreled IZH-43. The Saiga is also the only magazine-fed shotgun except for its modified Saiga FA Spec version.
Despite a lack of damage and accuracy when compared to other shotguns, the Saiga combination of a high rate of fire, semi-automatic fire capability, a moderate-capacity fast-to-reload 8-round magazine and good mobility allows for an extremely powerful close quarter platform that outperforms every other non-spec shotguns in terms of overall firepower and versatility.
However, it's most distinctive characteristic similar to the TKPD and TKPD Sniper, is the ability to take advantage of the gimmick scout firerate skill, giving it a significantly higher rounds-per-minute. With this skill invested, the Saiga 12k at 25 firerate can be spam almost as fast as the Saiga FA with barely noticeable difference. And with the ability to equip a high caliber Kiba silencer and flechette ammunition unlike the uncustomisable Saiga FA, the Saiga 12k is able to possess an insurmountable tactical advantage in close quarter, capable of rapidly devastating groups of enemies especially without being detected when silencer is used.
- — Description.
The w-task of the Saiga 12K is 50 ragekills. After completion the gun will be renamed to Saiga Hammer and equipped with an EOTech 550 sight and slug ammo, with the new customization. Like the MP-133, it can use the three other shotgun shells, 12 Gauge Slug, 12 Gauge HP, and the 12 Gauge Flechette.
Its differing ammo types are easier to get than the MP-133s, as 50 ragekills, and a few hours of Bay5 can get flechette and a few sights. Of course, you can always buy your way to it, like all customizable guns.
