This semi-automatic shotgun has its problems, put presents a unique set of pros that make it difficult to deny how great it can potentially be in the right hands.
On paper, using the Origin-12 seems problematic at best. Its damage specs are anywhere between below-average and mediocre, as almost easily the most important factor in determining the utility of a shotgun. However, as a semi-automatic weapon with a relatively large clip, suddenly those iffy individual round stats are brought a bit more into perspective. Each weaker round adds up for a gun that fires as quickly and consistently as the Origin 12, what matters is if each individual player is willing to make that trade off.
- Muzzle – Choke
- Barrel – FORGE TAC Impaler
- Laser – 5mW Laser
- Stock – No Stock
- Ammunition – 12 Round Mags
The choke attachment does an excellent job in tightening pellet speed while simultaneously expanding the effective damage radius of the gun. The FORGE TAC Impaler is added to serve the same purposes, as it further improves pellet spread as its greatest benefit. The 5mW Laser, another standard addition to most close-range utilized guns, is a solid way to benefit hip fire. By removing the base stock altogether, movement becomes much smoother.
Damage: Due to the massive magazine and semi-auto firing, damage is surprisingly a huge pro for this gun.
Recoil: Yes, shot command can be a problem with this gun. The recoil pattern requires a learning curve.
Mobility: Although movement is improved by removing the stock, it is still not necessarily fantastic.
