The Indian Ocean pirates are an antagonist faction that appear in the 2011 video game Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
In the game, the pirates are led by Rameses, and at one point they abduct treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake and interrogate him in attempt to find the location of Iram of the Pillars, a mythical lost city in the Rub' al Khali desert.
As the name suggests, the Indian Ocean pirates are a band of pirates that originate from countries that border the Indian Ocean; several of the pirates are noticeably South African. The pirates are led by their captain Rameses, and utilise weapons such as KAL-7s, Sawed-Off Shotguns, Raffica Pistols and Arm Micros.
 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
In Yemen, treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake is captured by Katherine Marlowe, the head of a secret society dating back 400 years. The pirate captain Rameses watches over the conversation between Nate and Marlowe, Marlowe's right-hand man Talbot reveals that Marlowe's agents have located Nate's friend, the antique-dealer Victor "Sully" Sullivan, who holds the coordinates to Iram of the Pillars, a mythical lost city said to be in the Rub' al Khali desert. Having found Sully, Marlowe says that Nate is now unneeded, and Rameses approaches the table. However, Nate jumps up and chases after Talbot. After a long chase Nate catches up to Talbot and engages him in a fistfight, but as Nate takes the advantage Rameses knocks Nate unconscious by hitting him with a piece of wood.
Marlowe then orders Rameses and his pirates to kill Nate, but instead Rameses takes him to a ship in the Yemen shipyards, where he interrogates him in an attempt to locate Iram. However, Nate isn't able to reveal any information and Rameses leaves after teasingly saying he is going to interrogate Sully instead. The pirates in the room then advance on Nate, but he is able to break the bonds holding him and begins fighting back against the pirates. All of the pirates in the room are defeated by Nate, who then leaves the ship and makes his way out into the shipyards. In the shipyards, Nate is able to defeat more of the pirates, before making his way onto the docks.
Nate attempts to catch up with Rameses, who is boarding his cruise ship along with the rest of the pirates, but a large wave then hits the docks. Rameses and his pirates board the cruise ship and set sail, while several other smaller boats are launched by the pirates. Nate makes his way onto one of these boats and defeats the pirates on one of these boats, before making his way across the other boats and onto the cruise ship. On the cruise ship, many pirates are defeated by Nate as he makes his way to the hold in order to find Sully. However, when Nate gets to the hold he realises that Sully isn't actually on the ship. When Rameses comes to confirm this, Nate shoots and wounds him, before setting of a grenade that causes an explosion that causes the cruise ship to begin sinking. Numerous other pirates are killed by Nate as he makes his exit, before Nate comes across a wounded Rameses in the cruise ship's aquarium. Rameses shoots at the glass holding back the aquarium, which causes the ship to flood even quicker. As Rameses drowns, Nate is able to escape the ship and floats to the shore on a piece of driftwood.
This marks the end of the Indian Ocean pirates; their leader is killed and the majority of the remaining pirates are either killed by Nate or drown as the cruise ship skins.
The Indian Ocean pirates are led by their captain Rameses, while one other pirate is named and given an identity:
- Brute is a heavily-armoured pirate that wields a PAK-80. He battles Nathan "Nate" Drake on Rameses' cruise ship.
