The SASG-12 is one of the most potent, close-ranged, semi-automatic shotguns next to the FO-12. In terms of damage and fire rate, this magazine-fed shotgun can easily tear a target to pieces. Long-range is inadvisable, though that goes without saying. It's still a powerful weapon even with a Suppressor, which brings the damage on par with the other semi-automatic shotguns. It's raw damage is even stronger than that of the FO-12, but not nearly as damage dropoff friendly.
