I equipped all soldiers with arc throwers. In combat, am seeing pistols instead of arc throwers. What gives?

I thhink Berzerkers have a pretty hefty Will ranking, which is why it can be harder to use Psionics on them as well. Land a decent 12pt critical on them and they should be zapped as easy as the others. I never really used arc throwers out side of when they were priority objectives - is there much benefit other than being able to retain their weaponry?
Can berserkers be captured? when i shot my arc at one, it said no stun or something lke that.RevolverAce

Yes - each type of unit that you capture provides a research credit which halves the research time for all affected technologies.
Variants of the same race provide different benefits, so a basic Muton gives different benefits to a Muton Beserker or a Muton Elite.
