I have NO idea what triggered this special version of the chained court, but its pretty nasty.

Here's a taste.


You see : a Arena Master (scratched) [m]ore | pool of blood                   
 The missile hits the Arena Master. The cacodemon fires! Boom!

well.  I took him out.  Then the next round I was taken out by everything else he kept reviving.
And he left behind something really cool I wanted to pickup, a yellow question mark! :(

It's pretty simple, really.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
His staff (aforementioned yellow question mark) is extremely useful, and if you're spoiler-inclined, that information's on the wiki.

Yep, it might not look like a good thing (fighting an arch-vile type thing with heaps of support on level 3-5) but it is. Not only do you have all the cool weaponry from the arena to do it with, you also get some new toys. Oh, and a damn near guaranteed assembly, which I currently rate as the most powerful of the new batch. Just because you get it here, nice and early, and it's so good for so many characters.

You'd be surprised how easy it can be if you just chuck on some fresh armour, grab the chainsaw and the berserk packs and just run at him swinging. Or just combat shotty walk at him to make sure your damage remains high while your berserk armour lets bullets ping off you. Chaingun sniping doesn't seem to work too well for me, but rockets don't go to badly. I guess it depends on your build and difficulty level/challenge mode.

The amount of room that question mark saves in your backpack for a later level is amazing as well. Keep it if you can.

Anyone ever noticed that the fewer the version number increases, the more changes? :P

Unless you're in a Chaingun build, in which case it's two-thirds of an Assault Rifle.

Which unfortunately is only about 3/4 of a plasma rifle. I'd rather a set of tactical boots and an agility modded plasma rifle than an Assault Rifle. Plus I don't need WK levels to do it :)
