The Agency HQ released part 1 of a weekly interview series with the developers of The Agency.
JonnyG: Will weapons be restricted by role?
Hal: Weapons not so much, the skills that come with weapons more so. If you are in a stealth role you should not anticipate ever wielding a heavy machine gun. If you are a combat agent you will have a wider range of weapons at your disposal. So there will be some restriction but, it will be mild, you're not going to have to worry about being stuck in a role and never finding something that will be of use.
