In addition to the shotgun, the Marine is armed with a M9 Beretta 9mm Pistol in its holster on the pistol belt, dressed in camouflage Battle Dress Uniform with body armor, and wearing a Kevlar PASGT helmet. A plastic canteen is also attached to the pistol belt, in its carrier cover. A carrier for extra M9 Beretta magazines also can be seen on his belt.
