I am just wondering. Enemies can steal your weapons, which can really spice things up, especially when fighting crowds of enemies. But more than once an enemie was stealing my focket launcher etc from huge distances. Is that something normal?
Do you mean in 2013, or the original?

In the remake the Lightning guards have "move" where they zip over to you, grab the gun and zip back, so it might have seemed like they grabbed it from a distance. Did it happen when your back was turned?

That said, I think in the original they could grab your gun from about 2 metres away, you didn't need to be right next to them.
Thanks for the reply! I was talking about ROTT 2013 and I guess I did not see the "zipping". Makes sense.
