Gallo SA12 Best Attachments & Gunsmith Loadouts Black Ops Cold War

The Gallo SA12 is a semi-auto shotgun in Black Ops Cold War. It is described as having reliable damage and pellet spread. It also has heavy recoil and low visibility when sustaining fire. 

The Gallo has a faster rate of fire but slower reload times in comparison to the Hauer 77. It’s more of a spam shotty. 

Players can get a 1 shot kill in very close range and if they hit a headshot. Most of the time, the Gallo will be a two-tap kill.

Weapon background

The Gallo SA12 is the Spas-12 shotgun that has appeared in many Call of Duty titles down the years. 


  • Damage: 118
  • Rate of Fire: 212RPM
  • Recoil: Low

Gallo SA12 Cold War Best Attachments

The best attachments for the Gallo SA12 in Black Ops Cold War are the:

  • Infantry V-Choke
  • 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
  • 9 Round Tube
  • Microflex LED
  • 5MW laser

The Infantry V-choke improves ADS spread by 77%. The 9 Round Tube holds two additional shells for less reloading.

You can try the 12 RND Tubes but it does add 33% to your reload times. We highly suggest adding a scope to the Gallo because the iron sights are very intrusive. We recommend the Microflex LED.

Best Gunsmith Setups

Class 1 – Suppressed Rusher

This Gallo S12 gunsmith was made with Black Ops 1 in mind. Who ran the suppressed SPAS-12? The Choke makes the weapon better when firing from the hip combined with the 5MW laser sight turns the Gallo into a hip firing machine. The rest of the attachments focus on handling speeds and ammo capacity.


  • Agency Choke
  • 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
  • SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • 9 RND Tube
  • No Stock

Class 2 – Pinpoint Accuracy

This gunsmith setup is tuned for maximum accuracy when aiming down sights. The Microflex LED gets rid of the horrible iron sights. This combined with the Infantry V-choke gives the ADS spread pinpoint accuracy. The Extended Barrel extends the effective damage range by 12%. Probably the most important attachment is the SASR Jungle Grip. This shaves 25% off ADS speeds. Making the Gallo super snappy and accurate.
