The 1216 is a semi automatic shotgun with a high rps(4). It deals moderate damage(70-80)at higher levels and has 16 shots per clip. It's basically a ksg with higher rps and lower damage. At close range, this weapon can kill most classes in 6-8 shots, depending on the weapon quality. However, it is mediocre at mid-range, so bring a good pistol(Kriss Kard, Beretta Px4) or a machine pistol. As there are 16 shots per clip, ammo is not that much of a concern, so fire away!
