The SPAS-15 is a modern Italian semi-automatic combat shotgun developed and manufactured by small arms company Franchi S.p.A. It fires 12 gauge shells at a maximum rate of 4 rounds per second (240 RPM) typically from a 3, 6 or 8 shell magazine with a maximum range of 40 meters.

In multiplayer, it is issued to the Demolition kit. It is unlocked once a player reaches level 25, or if one purchased the Gold Edition of the game, with which is unlocked as soon as one begins playing multiplayer. It has an 8-shell magazine. It has a fairly high rate of fire balanced out by moderate damage. It takes around 3 shots to kill, but its efficiency deteriorates drastically at longer ranges.
The SPAS-15 makes a return appearance in Battlefield Play4Free as a buyable weapon through the in-game store for 980 for unlimited use. It remains semi-automatic and comes with a 14 rounds magazine, good damage, accuracy and moderate rate of fire. The weapon has a very clean appearance, like all of the elite weapons, and sports a tan paint scheme on the pistol grip and handguard.
The SPAS-15 is very similar to the Saiga-12 and the USAS-12: even if it has slightly less close range damage, it does more damage at medium to long range, making it a wonderful choice for more open maps.
- The SPAS-15 was originally set to be included in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, evident by its inclusion in the PlayStation 3 beta, however it was never put in the full release.
