Trivia

  • A metallic shell is heard instead of a shotgun shell whenever it ejects an empty shell.
  • It is not a common battle weapon in CSO, but it is labeled as a hot weapon in the shop.
  • Even though it has its own sounds for shell insertion, drawing and pumping, the KSG reuses those of the M3's sounds instead.
    • Likewise, its own sounds that should play before and after reloading starts are not played.
  • The Gold KSG-12 is the lightest weapon in the shotgun category.
