While Agent 5 is skilled at almost all forms of firearms, he normally uses the weapon he calls the Jack the Ripper. Here is some information on the Ripper:
"The Ripper. An assault pistol developed for The Boss. Uses 5.56mm x 45 ammunition. The feeder mechanism inside the drum magazine forms an "∞" shape. Weight: 1.5kg."
Lance trained himself in the sword style of Japanese samurai's during one of his missions in Japan. He often uses a two sword technique, but his decent at quite a few other styles.
On some occasions the Boss has used a robotic exoskeleton. This suit gives him the ability to lift 50 tons and also protects his body from bullets. He also can fly off the ground for a short period of time. His suit also has two plasma tubes that serve as extra arms or turrets. He has only used this in actual battle two times.
