-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 28 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 15 of those were killed.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 7 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 6 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Thinking back about it, i must've been insane. True, i've had pleasant experiences with the Badass Fireangel build recently, but the ammo starvation makes an Ao100 run a crazy gamble.

Luckily, i failed to foresee the shortcomings of my decision, leading to one of my most epic DoomRL experiences so far.

I began with a generic Juggler, switching shotguns around and hoarding ammo for later stages. When i was running low, i wielded dual rocket launchers, which turned out to be extremely fun, although somewhat wasteful. An assault shotgun found later made shotgun dual wielding unnecessary.

"Little feels as satisfying as beating a Revenant to death with your bare hands... Except beating a Mancubus to death with your bare hands!"

On level 26 i ran dry on ammo for all weapons. Public opinion strongly stood in favor of applying the carefully saved Nano mod to a rocket launcher, which i did, dumping the second rocket launcher and the assault shotgun. I had to be careful, as i was not fire immune yet. A few levels later, this was fixed.

"Note to self: Just because you're an angel of fire it doesn't mean you're immortal. It just means you can sneak up on enemies and blow a rocket into their face point-blank with impunity."

I rushed to add as many levels of Ironman and TaN as quickly as possible to negate the ReveVile problem. What was left was thrown into Whizkid, allowing to mod the heck out of the now self-powered rocket launcher and onyx armor, quickly turned into an indestructible red armor by a single power mod.

I spent the next fifty levels looking for additional power mods to maximize the damage output from my now rocket launcher. Unfortunately, the large blast area and power of the rocket launcher made looking for items very difficult. Fortunately, a backpack with 14 large medkits  and 6 homing phases proved i don't actually needed the items that much. Furthermore, the problem was slightly negated with a triple-bulk-modded plasma shotgun which was used sporadically to clear hordes of enemies without destroying potentially useful gear.

When the third power mod was applied to the rocket launcher, it was abusive enough to be worthy of a unique name. Here's the #chaosforge transcript of the related conversation:

Quote
(15:46:33) Simon-v: Ahaha. A 6d9, self-powered, wide-area rocket launcher. What should i call it?
(15:47:00) Raven-Girl: A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
(15:47:03) Malek Deneith: Mr Cuddles :P
(15:47:05) thelaptop: "the mother-in-law"
(15:47:33) Simon-v: The Mother-In-Law wins.

Armed with The Mother-In-Law, the rest of the game was a blast... Literally. No combination of Viles, Revs or Mancubi could endanger me enough to spend more than one medpack. I kept walking around with 200% health.

Obviously, if not for the unlikely event of finding the Nano mod, the entire ordeal would have been suicidal.

I don't think i'll try this again anytime soon.

Sir, you have earned a status that rivals that of fanta.  That was one EPIC run.
