Can i skip most of phobos Base by destroying the doors/walls with a rocket launcher?

The answer is probably 'yes', but what do you mean by Phobos Base? Technically, I think this is levels 2 - 7, which is probably not what you mean.

In that case the answer is most likely 'no'. Wouldn't be fun otherwise ><

Noobing a bit on Linux here, but is there a deb package that I can use to install with? I hate having to puzzle missing dependencies based on runtime errors.

Not that I know of.  The usual stuff you need are the 32-bit editions of MIDI soft-synths and uhh SDL mixer or something like that.  I'll pulling it off the top of my head, so forgive me if I'm wrong/incomplete.

64bit versions for 64bit are OK. Any yes, you need to "sudo apt-get install" every libsdl_somethin that turns out missing.

Does anyone know if I can use a gun to open crates if going for a strongman badge, or can there be no gun usage at all? Alternatively, is there some way I can hit crates with my fist?

For Strongman badges, only the finishing blows count. Unless you _kill_ a creature with a gun, the game will not credit a weapon kill, so you're fine softening up tougher creatures all the way to "almost dead" and deal the finishing blow with your fists.
This also means that you are fine shooting crates open with whatever gun you have - but be careful not to catch some former humans in your shotgun's blast.
Hitting crates with your fists is possible too - just press "f" when unarmed, and then enter the attack's direction.

Oh wow, that first thing is super useful to know, thanks. Are you sure about hitting crates with your fist though? Whenever I try pressing f without a weapon I just get a message "You have no ranged weapon.", is there some setting I have to change maybe?

Hmmm ... Sorry, some confusion seems to have kicked in for me, as I thought this was already fixed :-/
However, you can open crates the way I described if you have a melee weapon equipped (just tested it, not to make a fool of myself again :) ). Carrying a combat knife for this purpose may be worthwhile.

Just want to add one more thing to what ZicherCZ said:  Make sure nothing dies while you have a weapon in your hand.  For example, if a Demon falls into acid at the opposite end of the map while you have a shotgun in hand, it will give you credit for a shotgun kill.  If your goal is to get only bare-handed kills, I would recommend keeping your hands empty as much as possible.  Nuking the Mastermind is fine as long as you don't have a weapon in hand when the nuke goes off.

Good luck!  :)

Moreover, as I know, killing an enemy by punch while you are wielding a ranged weapon WOULD NOT give a fist-kill credit.
I just finished a run like this, expected Strongman Gold, Diamond and Sunrise Iron Fist,
but didn't receive anything except Medal of Prejudice.. :(

I have a question about the wiki actually. How do you get promoted to editor status? I have a notepad full of math on the game and I figured I'd try to put all that otherwise wasted time to use by putting it in the wiki to fill out missing information and make some references.

The Wiki welcome page states that you need either 20+ forum posts or be a supporter for editing access.
If you don't want to become a supporter for the time being, feel free to PM your edits to me, I'll add them on your behalf as soon as time allows.
