These weapons are acquired as favors from Burke as you grant territory and accrue loyalty, though they can be purchased normally later in the game
Stromer .223 - An extremely decent assault rifle.
Hartmann HLP - Like all the heavy weapons, a little too specialized for general use, but fun for taking down informants in a hurry. It will also one-shot most vehicles, but by the time you get it, you probably won't need to do much of that. The bonus - unlike actual grenades, you can keep 'refilling' the HLP for free by swapping it out at the weapons van.
