The Franchi SPAS-12 is an Italian combat shotgun widely used by SWAT teams. It was used by A.A.H.W. units in Incident: 100A and Incident: 110A.

The SPAS-12 can be used in Madness: Project Nexus (Classic) and is the only shotgun whose ammunition is reloaded one round at a time. Although it is much slower to fully reload, the SPAS-12 has the advantage of being able to be reloaded at any time without wasting leftover ammunition. The SPAS-12 can hold 8 shots at a time with 16 shells in reserve, if any.

The weapon returns to MADNESS: Project Nexus as the Autour-12 or A12 and is a frequently wielded shotgun by most factions, including on occasion MERC Sergeants, Nexus Engineers and even A.A.H.W Engineers.

Due to the individual shells counting as individual reloads, if picked up from a dead enemy in Story Mode on Easy difficulty, it will only have 3 shells in reserve instead of 16, due to the maximum of magazines all other weapons can have in reserve is 3.
