The STG-12 is the only shotgun in Warmerise, and has a deadly damage if you use it correctly. The damage shown on the STG-12 does not mean that is the damage that the gun will give to your target at all times, but shows the damage given to each shot in the shotgun shell. The shotgun shell contains six shots, so you can do six times the damage shown in the armory if you shoot the gun once (all shots must hit target). With that being said, the STG-12 is lethal at close range, but poor at long range. You will often find this gun at base or at other close combat maps. The STG-12 was updated and replaced with a new model in the 2.2.3 update, along with a new livery and look. It is the most common guns used by unregistered players.
