- "Magazine-fed semi-automatic bringing a modern twist on the SPAS 12."
— In-game description
Unlike most semi-automatic shotguns, the SPAS-15 inflicts 28 damage per pellet. It makes up for it with a fast semi-automatic rate of fire, on par with the SASG-12, and a longer effective range before the damage starts to fall off. This makes it more viable in mid range engagements, but the pellet dispersion is something to consider beyond that range.
