The USAS-12 is a primary weapon in Far Cry 2.
The USAS-12 is a 12-gauge automatic shotgun produced by Daewoo Precision Industries in South Korea.
The USAS is obtained by completing the third convoy mission in Act 2. No enemies ever wield it.
Your second-best buddy will leave a used USAS in the safe house where you meet during the PetroSahel mission to get some tanker-truck routes for the Scrap Salvage mission in Act 1.
The USAS-12's biggest advantage over other shotguns is its full-auto capability, which can simply devastate enemies at close range, but full auto combined with shotgun shells gives high vertical recoil, especially when firing from the hip. Another advantage is the replaceable drum magazine instead of a shotgun-type tube magazine, which drastically shortens reload time.
The USAS-12 is extremely useful for daredevils that prefer to rush the enemy head-on and quickly dart between targets. Its automatic fire allows the player to quickly wipe out a small group, then run to the next one before the other enemies can react.
The USAS-12's pellet spread makes it difficult to use past short range, but buying an accuracy upgrade can partially offset this drawback.
This gun rusts up quickly, making it a bad choice for long trips; even the reliability upgrade does not help much. Whenever there is a chance, take a new one from an armoury. Despite its shortcomings, nothing can quickly shred enemies at close quarters like the USAS-12.
The USAS-12 has high muzzle climb meaning every 3 shots can be counted as a miss or a hit. Also, insane recoil with poor range makes it deadly in Close-quarters but recoil will throw the player's aim off so it's best used in corridors or cramped watchtowers.
