Eddy Raja's pirates are a band of ruthless Indonesian pirates that appear in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and briefly in Uncharted: Eye of Indra. They are the main group of antagonists encountered throughout the first half of the game. They are led by Eddy Raja, an old rival of Nathan Drake.
The pirates appear in Uncharted: Eye of Indra episode 2. They storm Nate's room along with Eddy. A short fight then occurs between Nate and the pirates before Rika Raja, Eddy's sister, explains the situation.
Uncharted: Drake's FortuneEdit
The pirates are the most common enemies in Chapters 1-12 of Drake's Fortune in which, under orders from Eddy, they guard many parts of the island and relentlessly pursue and attempt to kill Nate.
The pirate's are armed with PM-9mm pistols, AK-47 and M4 assault rifles, M79 grenade launchers, Micro-9mm submachine guns, Wes-44 magnum pistols, RPG-7 rocket launchers, and Moss-12 and SAS-12 shotguns, they are also equipped with Mk-NDI grenades, which they occasionally use to flush Nate out of cover. Rarely, pirates will use mounted turrets to try and keep Nate in cover, while some other pirates attempt to flank him.
The pirates are usually found guarding various areas of the island, such as the ancient fortress and the flooded city. Eddy and his pirates are later revealed to have been hired by Gabriel Roman and Atoq Navarro's mercenary organization, in order to aid them in recovering the El Dorado treasure in return for a share of the profits.
A large number of the pirates were killed by Nate, many pirates were also killed by the various traps dotted across the island. Most of the remaining pirates were killed in the treasure vault when the Descendants first attacked, including their leader, Eddy Raja. Some of the leftovers from the pirates' operation were discovered in the end by Victor Sullivan, who then robbed them of their treasure to compensate for the loss of El Dorado.
The many different pirates come mostly from one country, Indonesia, the birthplace of their leader, Eddy Raja. They may also come from numerous African and South American countries, or any other countries populated mainly by residents of darker skin tones. Most of the pirates know only basic English, usually heard when confronting Nate. Some, if not all, are most likely from the slums of their homelands, given their rugged, tough, and apparently rude attitudes.
While Nate is the main foe of the pirates, they were found by Eddy to be continuously dwindling in numbers, despite the only known killer being Nate. Eddy believed the island was cursed, somewhat proven correct later by the appearance of the Descendants. Numerous pirates were also killed by carelessly walking into the fatal wire traps that had been set up on the island by the Descendants.
Nate is confused by this at first, wondering why there would be deadly traps (which he believes the pirates have made) being set up whilst their own men are roaming all over the island. He later discovers a trap made from the wreckage of Sully's downed plane, along with an non-human footprint, indicating that they were not made by the pirates, however Nate does know about this at the time.
