For the .40 S&W variant, see USP

".45 caliber semi-automatic pistol that has low recoil, best used in mid-range combat."
— In-game description

The P12 is a handgun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by the GSG 9 Recruits, all GSG 9 Operators and the NIGHTHAVEN Operator Wamai.

Situations and Terrorist Hunt

In the Neutralize Cell Situation, the character plays as IQ equipped with an AUG A2 and a P12 as a sidearm.


The P12 has a decent damage per bullet at 44 and a relatively high ammo capacity, making it one of the Jack-of-all-Trades of handguns, along with the P226 Mk 25 and the Mk1 9mm.

  • P12 is the German Army designation for the USP .45 Tactical.
  • The P12 once used the same loadout icon as the P9 in-game. In Update 3.2, the icon was changed to the proper one depicting the P12.
  • Interestingly enough, the P12 has a different firing sound effect when either playing as GSG 9 Operators or spectating/viewing their 3rd person models (in-game). This bizarre trait is shared with the Super 90 and the D-50.
  • Blitz's reload animation for the P12 is different compared to other Operators. Notably, when reloading from empty, Blitz presses the slide release instead of pulling the slide to chamber a round.
