Once the Blackhearts get aboard the ship they’ve been hired to protect from an advanced group of pirates, they get issued weapons by the client. That means all the same primaries, namely SIG MCX Virtus carbines in 5.56×45.
The sidearms are all issued, as well. The client’s security coordinator goes for the basics, with Glock 19s.
Initially, that’s all they get, to Kevin Curtis’s fury. However, once things start to get kinetic, it turns out that the client was slightly more prepared for the well-equipped, well-trained pirates than it appeared. With money to burn, too. Curtis and Bianco both end up wielding FN EVOLYS ultralight machineguns, also in 5.56.
The pirates are a little more black market. Their primary weapons are South African Vektor R4s in 5.56.
For machineguns, they have a few Vektor Mini-SS 5.56 belt-feds, presumably from the same shipment the R4s came from.
Pistols are a little bit more eclectic among the pirates. We don’t necessarily get to see many of them, but the pirate chief, Cain, carries a SIG P226.
His right hand, the underworld mercenary known only as “El Salvaje,” carries a Star M-43 in 9mm.
