In the first level...some of the very first grunts you meet after being given a pistol by keyes(a major+2minors) ...they have plasma pistols but do not drop them on death. I know the next room contains plenty of stuff like needlers,rifles,ars,etc but im curious why do those 3 grunts weapons despawn upon their death

This is because your second weapon is supposed to be the assault rifle you pick up after killing the three grunts.

Also, these scripted weapon pickups do not check how many weapons you are holding, thus if you picked up a plasma pistol, then when the assault rifle is given to you, you'll have a third weapon.

You can witness this by triggering a glitch where the grunts do not appear when they should, thus you don't obtain Keyes's pistol immediately. If you do this, get the assault rifle, pick up any second weapon, and then go back to trigger the grunt spawn, then Keyes's pistol will be given to you, resulting in you having three weapons. Also, if you already have a pistol, you'll have two pistols.
