"Compact pump action 12-gauge shotgun with close range stopping power. Optimal for CQB."
— In-game description

The ITA12S is a shotgun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, introduced in the Operation Velvet Shell expansion. It is available for use by Mira, Jackal, and Frost.

Overview[]

While the ITA12S is statistically more powerful than even the M870, the extremely steep damage drop-off and wide pellet dispersion hinder its damage potential.

It is mostly useful for its destruction capabilities during the preparation phase and the early game, eliminating the need to bring a shotgun as a primary weapon or to waste an explosive gadget. While attacking, it is also useful for destroying barricades and hatches quickly, or to create lines of sight.

Pros[]

  • High damage per pellet
  • Utility use

Cons[]

  • Low magazine capacity
  • Extremely steep damage dropoff
  • Slow reload

Weapon Attachments[]

Trivia[]

  • The ITA12S is based on the FABARM STF 12 Short Initial shotgun.
    • For balancing reasons, the ITA12S is more powerful than the ITA12L, despite having a shorter barrel.
