@Equality
He already stated that he has plasma shotgun to gib corpses and to destroy walls.
If he starts using plasmatic shrapnel assembly every time he tries to cornershoot he will screw his cover. And that's never desirable.
While having plasma shotgun making plasmatic shotgun on MAD build is probably the best way to waste resources while also trying to kill yourself.

Why does Berserker Gold only require HMP, given that AoB is easier than both (a) AoMr and (b) a standard game using only knives and fists?

And that's exactly why I decided to just Pmod my newly found super shotgun and hang on to the sniper mod just in case I ran out of shells. Easy win. I'm going to be playing on HMP+ from now on methinks.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Anyone have any insight into my other questions?
1. When throwing a weapon, eg. Combat Knife/Mjollnir, is accuracy determined by Melee or Ranged chance to hit?
2. On that note, is Mjollnir on par with other melee weapons in it's current state (1D15; avg 8 dmg, throw+return attack)?

Is the list of 'random names' published anywhere? And how can one contribute? Or make it to the list, in fact?

I just played a speedrun game to land some easy medals, and on my mortem I saw my scout was actually named 'Ashannar'. Didn't see that one coming... :S

Ah, that explains it. And what about the list of all names? And contributions besides your own username?

Lightfoot Platinum: the wiki mentions it has to be performed on UV, but the game doesn't. Which should it be?

If the wiki is right, the in-game description should be updated....

I've been pondering this simple question for a while:
If you kill yourself and spidermastermind at the same time, without nuking yourself, (ex: BFG10k or rocket launcher point blank) is it a victory, partial or loss?

Lightfoot platinum mentionned UV in 0.9.9.6. I noticed it too, and IIRC, failed getting it, coz I played on HNTR.
I think game's decription has to be fixed

For the mastermind, I can't answer, but it's probably not too hard to test with a save (just copy your DoomRL data somewhere if it's not done yet, and scum a little with a save having BFG & rockets ammo)
After a few tries, you should have a good idea of the number of shoots necessary to kill him, and manage to finish both of you with a melee rocket.

The answer to that question depends on where you happen to be standing relative to the mastermind.

The game processes spaces (EDIT:) row by row, from left to right in each row, starting from the top row going down.

If your space is processed before the Mastermind's, you lose (you'll see the mastermind destruction message after pressing enter for your own 'you die' message).

If the Mastermind's space is processed before yours, it is a standard victory.

So if you plan on doing this, you'll want to be BELOW (or directly RIGHT) of the mastermind, so that its space is processed before yours.

Is it possible that there is a general advantage to clearing a level from the Top-Left?

The processing only applies to area effects, like shotgun blasts and explosions (including nukes).  I don't see any general way to exploit this yet.

Question:

Is the wiki experience table correct and updated??

This part especially on the last levels:

23    600000
24    800000
25    900000

Seems like a huge step from 23 to 24. (200k?? :O )

Which honestly doesn't apply (I think) to my latest and current ao100 since I got from 23 to 24 quite easily in normal time (just 8-10 dungeon levels or so.)

And regarding the experience another question:

Do we get fewer xp from each enemy the more level ups we get? Or not?
