— In-game description
The slowest firing weapon in the game, the M12 is not the best submachine gun for close-range engagements. Its slow rate of fire does, however, make the gun easier to control at longer ranges. It's also suited for a more methodical playstyle thanks to having the tightest hipfire accuracy out of all submachine guns.
- Low recoil.
- Access to an Extended Barrel.
- Slowest automatic fire rate in the game.
- Lacks access to an ACOG Sight.
