Don’t worry about those swords, by the way. As the film’s synopsis makes clear, Jovovich and his colleagues will be exchanging their weapons for blades shortly:

In their desperate battle for survival, the unit meets the mysterious hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the mighty creatures.
