I recently seen a documentary that mentioned how outnumbered Swedish Troops in the Great Northern War Seized Polish Artillery and turned it against them to help win a battle. What are other notable examples of this in history?

Napoleon had a reputation of never having lost one ( until the end )

Wellington in the Peninsular campaign was also proud of never having lost a single one.

In Rocroi, the Spanish seized the French artillery and pounded them with their own. However, this didn't prevent the Spanish defeat in the encounter

The charge of the Light Brigade was all about capturing guns, or it would have been had the instructions been clearer.
