Mission and Plan decides that which weapons will be used by the Nave Seal team six.
Every Navy seal team six member is highly trained in handling all the types of weapons.

Richard "Mac" Machowicz, a former Navy SEAL sniper and the host of Spike TV's "Deadliest Warrior," told ABC News that when he was a sniper, he essentially had eight different sniper rifles tailored to different scenarios.

Machowicz said that in the bin Laden scenario, the SEALs would have likely used short-barrel weapons -- such as a shortened M4 or AR-15 assault rifle -- that allow them to easily maneuver in and out of doors, hallways and vehicles.

In the sky, in-atmosphere satellites (such as predator drones) and space-based satellites convey information to the troops on the ground.

Helmet-mounted cameras, which were reportedly worn during the mission to capture bin Laden, also transmitted information to commander’s back at base and to the situation room in Washington.

This helps the soldiers on the ground to quickly identify their targets, pick up every threat and take them down fast.

One of the other useful tools in a SEAL's kit is the flash bang, or stun grenade
This device works similar to a regular grenade but is nonlethal.
