S-12 Gun Review: Best Class setups, Variants and Attachments for the S-12 in Advanced Warfare!

Recommended Attachments for the S-12 are Advanced Rifling to make up for its poor Range. Laser Sight to make it easier to hip fire while rushing. The Extended Mags are also very handy for this weapon given its low ammo capacity combined with rapid fire rate.
