 Post subject: Things Gum Heads can steal from you

Earlier today, one of them pilfered a holy candle from my inventory and began wielding it. To quote Henry, "what the hell?"

In the past I've had a steel pipe and a golf club stolen from me. Strangely, as I returned to the 1B floor of Building World (second time around) I could find my stolen steel pipe on the floor right next to the hole. I haven't tried if this always happens...

So, have you had similar experiences? Is it normal for those things to steal even items like holy candles (which I would imagine are awkward to bash someone's head with)?

i thought they could only steal items if you were holding them. not in the inventory, but actually in henry's hands.

I never even knew they could steal stuff from you O_O Guess I somehow avoided it / I was playing on Easy. I'm doing another playthrough now, though, I'm gonna have to experiment a bit.

Ditto, I never knew they could steal either. While it probably sucks when they do, I still want to see if I can get it to happen, just to see it for the lolz and whatnot.

I've never had them steal anything from me because I either beat them all up so they don't get the chance or I don't bother with them.

Interesting that this happens, though.

This run was on easy, just trying out various speedrun strategies.

I attempted to make him steal from me earlier today, and again, I lost a holy candle. On a later attempt he stole a broken golf club and used it in a perfectly viable manner. (when I re-picked it up after having defeated him, it was as useless as before... go figure.) Just now, he also took a bug spray, what's up with that? Fortunately he didn't know how to spray with it.

Edit: more items he could steal: paper-cutter and stun gun. They all do the same amount of damage to Henry, apparently. I also encountered a neat glitch: I killed the gum head on stairs, and as he glitch died (sort of skipped straight down the stairs), my stolen item was left floating in air. A cool thing in this all was that Henry automatically either crouched down to examine it or didn't depending on what angle/height I tried to pick it up.

Some items that never got stolen: handguns, sword of obedience, axe, saint medallions, health drinks...

I was unaware that they could steal items from you. That's really interesting and awesome! I think I'll have to try it when I'm playing SH4 again...

No they steal crap from my inventory too. I hate the bastards.

Yeah it's true, they can steal your items.
They stole from me: Steel Pipe, Golf Clubs (both broken and normal), and I believe a Health Drink. Nothing else :P

They stole a golf club from me...But if you kill the one that is holding one previously and click on it you can take that one :3
So I replaced my golf club >D
I didn't know they could steal the steel pipe O.o

Most people say Henry's a pervert because of looking through the peephole to Eileen's room, but here's the thing: Your not required to do that, it's the players choice.
So whose the pervert now :P?

((Apparently you can OD on Green Tea...And it's painful.))

I've heard of Gum Heads stealing your items but I just club them to death with my aluminium bat before they can do so. Although, I think I have had a golf club stolen before.

I played several times and had a lot of stuff stolen. Got it back though after smashing their heads in though.
Golf Clubs, Aluminum Bat, Steel Pipe. I am not sure, but I think one even stole a Holy Candle one time? I don't know.

Makes me wonder if they can steal Henry's gun and shoot him down oO

Most likely can, if they can steal a health drink and a holy candle, they should be able to snag a fire arm.

The question is though: can they USE it?

I know they can swing at you when they are already carrying a weapon...
