— SIX12 In-game description

"This compact 12-gauge shotgun runs off a six round drum. Includes an integrated suppressor for stealth."
— SIX12 SD In-game description

The SIX12 is a shotgun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation Blood Orchid expansion. It is available for use by the Ying, Lesion, and Nøkk.


The SIX12 comes in two variants, the regular model and the integrally suppressed model. The damage and recoil remain the same between the two variants. At its optimum range, hitting all eight pellets will kill any Operator aside from Doc, or an Operator with Rook Armor.

The SIX12 has a rather slow rate of fire for a semi-automatic shotgun, and a very small magazine size. Its only advantage over other shotguns is its quick reload.
