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

 Before him 433 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 364 of those were killed.
 4 of those were killed by something unknown.
 11 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 27 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 27 souls claim to have killed him...
 6 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 21 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

If there's something like "easy nightmare" then Angel of Max Carnage and Ammochain build should be called this way. The only thing you need is not to forget to scout terrain ahaed with your combat shotgun and ALWAYS have at least 70-80% of health.
For the first time I went to Phobos Arena being invulnerable... but I didn't have a nuke! Full Nightmare! win was so close...
Oh, and you can call me Lt. Colonel now :)

Nice win!  But I think AoPc and AoRA are a little easier that AoMC, but they have vastly different mechanics from the usual game play, to be fair.

Really, you should try beating the arena on AoMC. All you need is a combat shotgun and chaingun, and two lvls of SoaB, which is easy to achieve since exp on N! grows up really fast. Use combat shotty to scout and chaingun to kill - remember that in this mod every bullet hits with max damage (so do everything not to get hit and heal shortly after if you do!).
I actually did the arena on N! for the first time during this run, but rocket launcher which i got as a reward was very useful.
I think AoPc and AoRA are a little easier that AoMC, but they have vastly different mechanics from the usual game play, to be fair.
I had many attempts to beat AoPc on N! and none of them was succesful (I've never passed through hellgate). But it's a nice idea to try AoRA, since this is simple AoPc with shooting. Thanks for the idea!

You should try to strip off the armour just to gain that extra speed boost.  DM will protect you a little as you zig-zag across the level running as fast as you can, almost naked.  That was how I did my AoPc runs -- I'd stop at nothing to gain that extra .5 seconds of movement speed.
