Thanks to my discovery of online third-party gear, I can now take some of my guys out of their Vietnam era weapons (they have laser cannons and are still using this crap?). Question is, what to get my legions. Here are some thoughts, but I wouldn't mind some suggestions too.
No brainer. Wood stock AK-47. Rugged, reliable, and CHEAP. Lacks the long-range accuracy of an M-16 but makes up for it in stopping power. Perfect for equipping your cannon fodder.
The laser is one handed, jetpacks are voice-operated, so that's one whole hand for killing stuff left otherwise empty. I'm thinking the P-90 minus the silencer (straight-up Stargate Special). Decent range and power in an extremely compact design that (with a little bracing) can be fired one-handed for sweeping a room you've just blasted into through the window.
They're not the type to drag their stuff through the mud, so an M-16 would do nicely if US based or pulling bodyguard duty for Serpentor.
Mac-10s w silencer. For the quiet operations or as a fallback weapon and a 50. cal sniper rifle for the extra-tough problems.
I'd like to know what they're carrying before I decide to reequip them. Anybody know what they're packin' exactly?
She doesn't come w a removable sidearm, so the Walther P-38 w scope and silencer (Megatron special!) is perfect for her on a mission. Maybe an HK SOCOM auto-pistol w silencer too.
AKS-74U, perfect backup for when all the extra missles fall out of his backpack.
Something as disposable as they are, so AK-47s for them too. Maybe an MP-5 for close-in fighting deployment. Yeah, w their strength they could probably handle a minigun, but would you trust them with one?
Shotgun! Plus a few assorted pistols and AKs.
Okay, now HE gets the minigun.
His "blooper" (single-round M-4 grenade launcher) is MASSIVELY outdated. At least give 'im an assault rifle with a launcher built in! Sadly, I don't see the multi-shot launchers a self-respecting jarhead should have, so an M-16 w launcher it is (w the blooper as backup).
Plus a few more random M-16s for the other Joes and give the leftover Dragunovs to the ninja (who can actually make use of them).
Any other suggestions?

I've been working on a Cobra SWAT team since JoeCon. I'm leaning heavily towards the HK-MP5 to be the default issued weapon with the heavier items available as the situation calls for it.

There's a multi shot grenade launcher coming out in the next series, set for around mid August, last I heard.
Warning about the Megatron gun. The handle is huge. It'll stretch the hand out, to where it won't want to hold anything else.
The Viper gun is totally made up. Hasbro invented it, specifically for them. Marauder's version is the NVR rifle. Series five will have a modular NVR rifle, and some new modular accessories.
The custom civy team I've been putting together all use NATO 7.62 cal weapons, for their primaries. (the sniper will, once the SCAR-H is released) That big ol' .50 just doesn't work well for close in. I'm not personally fond of the M16 and it's derivitives for a number of reasons, or of the AK47, with it's relatively weak short 7.62mm rounds.
