[edit] Description

Nathan Drake with the SAS-12.

The SAS-12 is a shotgun, and therefore it is most effective in close-quarter combat situations. A powerful weapon, it will often defeat enemies in one shot over short distances. It is much more effective than the other preeminent shotgun in the Uncharted series, the Moss-12, as it has a much higher rate of fire, as well as a longer range and a larger clip size. However, the reload times are longer than that of the Moss-12. The weapon first appears in the first game in the Uncharted series, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, where it usually wielded by Atoq Navarro's mercenaries. The SAS-12 returns in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, being used by Zoran Lazarević's soldiers. In both games, the weapon becomes common in the later chapters, replacing its weaker counterpart, the Moss-12. The SAS-12 also returns in the 2011 video game Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.

[edit] Behind the scenes

The SAS-12 seems to be based somewhat on the real-life Franchi SAS-12 shotgun, which itself is a variation of the well-known SPAS-12 shotgun. The "12" in the weapon's title refers to "12 gauge", the diameter of the gun's barrel.
