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 appear only in Arsenal mode and appear in three maps: Sugarcane, Shoots and Stmarc. In all three maps they fight the GIGN.
- 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 Connection.
