That is very weird indeed... Are you sure the aliens did not modify the obposref.dat file just to play with you? :)

I have no clue...

Probably...or how to explain somebody also added 4 harpoon clips to a Tasoth?(I found 4 harpoon clips lying in the location where tasoth was lying. And YES, i brought some jet harpoons and clips since the items eat more space than they ate in 1st x-com. No screenshot this time, sorry)

Actually, this ammo suddenly appearing inside the alien bodies was quite common in UFO as well. The handling of the various item and unit tables in the battlescape is quite little sloppy and doesn't clear most of the fields, so when the bodies were created, they must've filled a slot that still pointed to an ammo clip that's in one off your weapons. Quite a problem with the (unsplit) Collectors Edition of the game since the game never clears these battlescape object tables when switching between the two parts of the game.

Sometimes I'd find a dead snakeman with heavy cannon clip inside them for eample. Guts of steel, or a high iron diet? :

The one in the original post though is a little odd - that's a MC Disrupter, not something you'd usually find loaded into an alien.
