The modern pirates of the Horn of Africa claim their actions denote self defense of their territorial waters although the extortion and murder committed by the self-proclaimed “coast guard” belie these claims.
Judging from their appearance and place of origin, it's very likely they are Somali pirates.
The Pirates were added in the August 10th, 2012 update. Their hand model features bare tan arms and hands with a golden watch on the right arm. The Pirates primarily appear in Arsenal mode and appear in three maps: Sugarcane, Shoots, and Stmarc. In all three maps, they fight the GIGN.
"Don't forget the plan..."
"Press it! Press it"
"Show your face so I can cut it!"
"Is that all you got?"
"This island isn't big enough for the both of us!"
"This is our island!"
"Bang bang mon!"
"Your big fat mother!"
- Similar to real life, the outfit and role of the Pirates are inspired by the Somali Pirates.
- The Pirates appeared on Aztec in early alpha stages, instead of the Phoenix Connexion.
- The Pirates seem to have a Jamaican accent.
