The DEF-12 Shotgun is a pump-action shotgun used around 2020.
The DEF-12 is a pump-action shotgun with a six-round magazine. The shells contain several small pellets which spread when fired, dealing large amounts of flesh damage. The DEF-12 is commercially available. It is used in urban settings, where the wide spread of the weapon is put to good use. The weapon is excellent for room clearing. It features several high tech radar functions.
The Shotgun is highly damaging at close range, and tears through armor easily. There is little that can withstand the payload of even one shell. The weapon has a radar sweep function which will highlight enemies on the user's radar. In multiplayer mode, a mimic function places the user on the other team's radar as an ally.
The DEF-12 has a long reload time, due to the need to insert each shell by hand. The shotgun must also be pumped after each shot. It has very low accuracy and range, and the damage that the pellets deal decreases substantially with increased distance. While using the radar sweep function, the user's position is given away on radar.
Killian's enforcers are the most notable users of this gun. Later, some of the dataDyne recovery teams would use this weapon in the subway when Joanna Dark made her way to the extraction point. The Carrington Institute team sent to the Trinity research platform also used the shotgun.
The Shotgun is one of the weapons for the offensive team in the Onslaught mode. The shotgun sees high usage in close range areas of maps and when the maps are set to 'small'.
