My point is that if you want to get your first diamond, it's easier to learn to play well enough to get scavenger or gatekeeper diamond badges rather than grind for the others.
It has the potential to be quicker, but it certainly isn't easier.

Armorer Platinum and Diamond should be abolished; the Dragonslayer taboo deserves every scrap of mockery it receives.

Quick question on the Biggest Fucking Gun... on the wiki, it says the blast radius is 16.

Won't I die?

The ensuing explosions from the biggest fucking gun don't hurt you, just like how firing a BFG point blank at a wall doesn't melt you instantly. Unlike, say, getting caught in the blast radius of any rocket launcher or the BFG10k.

Good, because I just got the second firestorm pack... but why the difference between the BFG10k and the rest of the BFG family?

You'll have to ask iD Software - They invented the BFG10K in Quake 2 (and 3?)

Ah, so it's based on a difference in the actual games.

In related news, the Biggest Fucking Nuclear Gun is the most fun weapon over. Every, maybe, twenty seconds or so, it's ready to instagib entire armies of high end demons.

What goes well with Cerberus Armor?

Currently in a UV 100 run and I have an Onyx Armor that I've thrown a P mod onto already. I have the rest of the mods to make a Cerberus Armor, but will it retain infinite durability once assembled?

It should - in my experience, modified armors retain their base stats and abilities, only modifying them as dictated by the assembly. It's also worth noting that it's possible to Onyx mod other assemblies to give them infinite durability, even if the assembly wouldn't have that. Since an Onyx armor already has that ability, I don't see why it should lose it.

According to the Wiki page, Cerberus retains the durability of the armour used. It should thus be infinite.

If you're playing the "I have all the levels of hell to find cool gear" game, cerberus also goes well if you apply it to ballistic vest, duelist armor, or gothic armor, all of which have 50% resistance to the categories cerberus doesn't touch.  Though at that point you probably want to take a lot of TaN and/or hope you find an onyx mod to put on the completed non-invulnerable armor.  (I feel like gothic must be best for this, but I haven't found any in a long time.)

1. "I have all the levels of hell to find cool gear" is Archangel of 666. I guess Ao100 is kinda like that, but I'm also playing on UV. But yes.
2. Yeah, I'm not getting TaN anytime soon. I'm building Cateye Dualgunner (despite the last 10-so floors have been nothing but me blasting an assault shotty, stupid game), and Cateye blocks TaN, Brute, and Reloader. So much for that. I do, however, have a P-modded Duelist Armor...

What I should probably do is focus on getting offensively-geared up first before focusing on defense. Or maybe not. I have such limited experience on UV it's kinda dumb that I decided to attempt UV 100 instead of something sensible. (UV AoLT? heh)

Search me... I get my ass handed to me by HMP =P

I'm perhaps slightly better at Ao100 then other challenges, but that's only because I hate special levels and love Ammochain and infinite mods. My basic strategy for my Ao666 runs was build a big indestructible armor and stop worrying about it =P resistances weren't a concern on HNTR since I had more large medkits then I could ever use, and barely even touched those thanks to powerup heals. Also my big indestructible armor was cybernano, so I couldn't go changing it around even if I'd been so inclined =P

On HMP, I imagine it's a lot trickier, to say nothing of UV...

That run ended. I always forget about how quickly the really nasty enemies show up on UV. I guess if I played more UV, I'd get used to the difficulty curve.

The lesson I learned is that I should focus on building my weapons first before I even consider what master assemblies I should be aiming for. I've heard good things about Cateye Dualgunner before, but they call it Glass Cannon Cateye Dualgunner for a reason.

P.S.: I hate UV

A Mancubus has line of fire on me. My next move will not put me immediately behind cover, my weapon will not kill him in one attack.

What are my options here? So far I've narrowed them down to "die" and "die horribly".

On a slightly related note, why does the act of changing tactics to running cost time? That should be an instantaneous change. You can say it should take some time to accelerate up to running speed, but I should at least be allowed to specify a direction to begin moving in, in that case, since one does not accelerate to full speed while standing in place.

Move, or he'll do your moving for you. Moving (perpendicularly) at least gives you a chance to dodge, and if you're outside of the blast range, you might even end up unhurt. He'll probably shoot again though. And of course it all depends on traits, armour and resistances. Unless you play really stupidly, Mancubi aren't that intimidating with slightly better than average gear.
