"12-gauge semi-automatic, mag-fed combat shotgun. Fast reload and optimal in CQC."
— In-game description

The FO-12 is a shotgun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, introduced in the Operation Blood Orchid expansion. It is available for use by Ela.[1]


The Fostech Origin-12 is a semi-automatic magazine-fed combat/tactical shotgun, developed by Fostech Outdoors. It has been heralded as the fastest semi-auto shotgun on the planet. The adjustable gas system allows reliable cycling from low brass shells to high brass magnum shells.

In game, the FO-12 features an incredibly fast rate of fire and a very solid damage output, making it an absolute monster in close-range engagements. Along with the impressive fire rate however, comes the downside of a high vertical recoil. While absolutely not suitable for long range, the FO-12's ability to equip an extended barrel allows it to perform reasonably well at mid-range if the user is familiar with the recoil.
