The Norinco "Hawk" 982 (Chinese: 北方工业雄鹰982), also known as the HP9-1 (Chinese: HP9-1猎枪), is a Chinese combat shotgun produced by the small arms company, Norinco (Chinese: 北方工业公司).
The shotgun has a 14 inch (360 mm) smoothbore barrel and is a near-identical copy of the American Remington 870 due to the design no longer being protected by a patent. The Hawk is used by various SWAT-style police units and Border Guards across China.
— In-game description
Like the other pump-action shotguns, it is capable of achieving one-hit kills at medium-close distances, and inflicting fair damage even out to its maximum range. It has a low rate of fire and a slow reload rate.
The Hawk 12G is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4.
It possesses the slowest rate of fire and the largest spread out of all of the available pump action shotguns, alongside with the smallest magazine capacity at 5 + 1 rounds. This is, however, compensated by giving the Hawk a significantly larger amount of pellets (21) than other shotguns. Additionally, the Hawk 12G is the most powerful of the Pump action Shotguns and features a much quicker reload due to being box-fed. Due to these features, it is a balanced weapon sitting between the weak box-fed shotguns and powerful pump action shotguns.
It unlocks the Chinese attachments with US and Russian attachments unlocked through Battlepacks.
- The Hawk 12G featured in Battlefield 4 is the only Pump-Action shotgun in the Battlefield series that is fed from a detachable magazine.
- In Battlefield 4, when performing a full reload of the Hawk 12G, the shell ejected at the end of animation will fly back into the gun when the reload finishes. This is due to a bug.
- When one attaches a Laser Sight or a flashlight, it is placed underneath the barrel. This is because the gun doesn't have a Picatinny rail.
- The Chinese characters on the side of the Hawk 12G (序列号) translate to "Serial Number", though there isn't actually a serial number printed on the gun.
