Wild chainsaws are not likely to occur in normal games -- it is only in Ao100 that you have a much higher chance of seeing it.

As for the backpack, no, you do not see it wild ever.  Come to think of it, has anyone seen a BFG9000 in the wild for Ao100 or any other game modes?
Very rare wild backpacks in Ao100 would be kind of cool.
Why do we keep calling it wild? This isn't Pokemon...

Code: [Select]
A wild CHAINSAW approaches!
Get 'em, SHOTGUN!

CHAINSAW uses BLOODGOD!
CHAINSAW's DEF rises sharply!
CHAINSAW's ATK rises sharply!
CHAINSAW's SPD rises sharply!
SHOTGUN uses JUGGLER!
Hits 2 times!
CHAINSAW uses RIP!
Critical hit!
SHOTGUN uses ASSEMBLY!
SHOTGUN transforms into ELPHTGUN!
CHAINSAW uses TEAR!
ELPHTGUN uses SHRAPNEL!
It's super effective!
CHAINSAW uses GUTS!
CHAINSAW is storing energy.
Go! Pickup!
(locks in place)
You caught CHAINSAW!
Would you like to give CHAINSAW a nickname?
CHAINSAW -> ZERKSAW

In all seriousness, all pinks (exotics) can be found as a random drop. This includes chainsaws, BFG9000s, nuclear plasma rifles/BFG9000s, assault shotguns, and missile launchers. And possibly anything else I didn't think of. Limes (uniques) are always found randomly, while yellows (artifacts) are never found randomly.

I've actually seen a random chainsaw spawn in a non-A100 game, though when you're not playing a melee run, there isn't much point to it (the zerk effect only activates for the first pickup).

And why isn't there a general 'ask a question, get an answer' thread here?
We had a "quick questions" thread a while back, feel free to reuse it if you want. It's not stickied, although it may be a good idea to have one anyway.

About wall destruction. Data from 9.9.2, though:

AoMC.
10 dmg plasma - can't shoot through
11 dmg plasma - 10 hits to break
12 dmg plasma - 5 hits to break

11 dmg bullet - can't shoot through

So the closest estimate: 10HP and 20 armor. With 1/2 armor reduction for plasma working as with enemies

Quick question:

Is it so that all assemblies cannot be modded further?
If so, Is there any reason to high-power mod a weapon if I have whizkid? (so that instead of PB mod I can just apply PPP and enjoy 2 other mods)

1) Assemblies can be modded further given the correct conditions. See here (Game Hunter's post).

2) You might want a high-power weapon if you only have 1 power mod or if you want to use power mods on other things.

Quick stupid question.  Can you transfer data from an earlier version of the game to a later one?

player.wad (and probably score.wad) are compatible with all versions 0.9.9.0 and later and will be compatible for all future versions.  Saved games are generally not compatible between versions.

Additionally, the save file of one game from the previous version does not carry forward though.

and there are some minor issues with the number special items it claims you found if you are coming from 0.9.9.0

If you take a master trait that blocks a trait you have levels in, does it plain disable the trait's effects or do you still get the benefits from it?

You can't take a master trait if you have levels in any of the traits it blocks.

That makes sense.

This next question's about schematics. So far I've only gotten most of the basic assemblies. A third from playing with mods and the rest from the schematics found at Hell's Armory. Last couple of times I was there I didn't get any schematics, so I'm starting to think the game's done with handing them out.

Anyway, my question is, "What other ways are there to get schematics aside from completing Hell's Armoury?"

The answer is "no except building and experimenting on assemblies yourself".

Also, remember that schematics for advanced and master assemblies do appear in Hell's Armory sometimes if you are playing Ultra Violence or Nightmare!

My question may be  kinda  childish, but there it is: Can I play DoomRL without sound? If answer is yes, how?
