 Before him 12 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 10 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

It started great for a shotgun run.  I had a combat shotgun and blue armor by lvl 3 so I used it and 3 of my med kits (bad luck with spawning...) to get the arena's double shotgun. next floor I got a power mod for it so it was easy going for a while.
Spent 3 phase devices trying to get behind the wall (I had a homing one for the escape) but no such luck.
Cleared the Halls just for fun getting basass before I left with all the ammo I could carry.
Here my luck took a turn for the worse, I didn't see another sargent after the hellgate and by 18 my ammo was running short.
19 was very of lucky, 3 Inv globes near the spider lair so I went down and killed the spiders WITH MY FISTS (I'm as shocked as you) and got the nuke.
On 20 there were 3 arch-viles and a few mancubi, I spent most of my shells killing the viles and the last mancubus knocked me to 1% so I fired the nuke.

Somehow I found FOUR BFGs and gothic boots (holding for the lava pits) but no other specials.

Looks like you were going for a YAAM. Hopefully this game teaches you that, sometimes you have to give up on dreams of grandeur and make the best decision for winning the game. Even in a MAD build, shotty builds always have that ever-present threat of finding no Sergeants in Hell, which means you need to keep an extremely healthy stock before that. This is best accomplished at the Halls of Carnage, as you're given far more than enough to survive a good deal of levels below. Additionally, you can sacrifice Iro for SoB, boosting your damage ever-so-slightly to save on shells. (Don't doubt the +1, man.)

As a suggestion, power-mod your combat shotgun before the double, especially on MAD. The difference between 24d3 and 27d3 up close isn't as important as the difference between 7d3 and 8d3 when radar-shooting.

Stuff

Iro or SoB really depends on your style. SoB is a lot more noticable with the combat shotgun, of course, because you put a power mod on it, get SoB 2 and all of a sudden it's a sniper rifle with spread.

But really, ironman is more likely to secure a YAAM if your long-range damage isn't a problem.

Also, the power mod just isn't even worth putting on your double shotgun over armour. The combat shotgun gets your first, then any red armour you have. The double shotgun is probably what you'll be putting tech mods on anyway.

Thanks for the tip with the power mod. I took as many shells as I could from the halls but it wasn't enough... I was honestly hoping for explorer not YAAM (I don't have any wins yet), Ironman was taken because I was low on health towards the lower levels.
