The Auto Assault-12, or AA-12, was a fully automatic shotgun released on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.
The gun comes standard with a 20-round drum magazine, with another magazine in reserve. It should be noted that although it boasts the fastest fire rate out of the current shotguns, it also sports the least amount of damage in its category. The AA-12 also has small spread especially for a shotgun, controllable, fast-settle-down recoil, the highest magazine capacity of a shotgun (20/20 and can accept magazine mods), a relatively fast reload, and has a fully automatic fire mode. The AA-12 is fast becoming popular with various players of Combat Arms.
Due to it's low spread, this shotgun has a much higher effective range. It is capable of killing a player exiting Bravo base in Short Fuse from the third story window.

- The AA-12, being a very weak 2-3 hit kill can be considered underpowered but its high fire rate can bring it into the rank of an average gun.
- It shoots a group of 6 pellets per round.
- It cannot shoot during reload just like the Saiga 20K.
- The way the player holds the shotgun may seem awkward, with his thumb on top of the gun, but in real life this type of grip is used to help control recoil.
- The AA-12 is one of the many weapons featured on the Permanent Weapon Retirement list. It was sold for 7,950NX from January 12th - 19th 2011.
- Players could purchase this gun in "The Best of 2010 Sale" with GP, which costs 27,300GP for 30 days. Those who were rich and loved the AA-12 enough could possibly purchase and renew this gun repeatedly for a very long duration, saving a significant amount of NX.
- This shotgun can be upgraded into AA-12 MARK II, with more damage but a slower rate of fire
- This shotgun features a spring system in the stock that absorbs recoil and makes it have little if any.
- It was available for 25% off permanent duration during Combat Arms' 4th Anniversary sales.
- It was available for permanent duration in the Return of the Perms Sale 2 for 15,920 NX.
