A deal of recent effort has gone into creating generic astroparticle likelihood functions that can be directly included in global fits to Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) theories. I will detail new generalised constraints from the cosmic microwave background on dark matter annihilation into any combination of SM particles, and discuss methods for including event-level data from neutrino searches for dark matter annihilation in the Sun. Finally, I will show some of the implications of these searches for supersymmetry in the 25-parameter weak-scale miminmal supersymmetric SM (MSSM-25).
