Eh... I've been playing UV, so I don't have even average gear by the time I find them, now. They're almost a death sentence to me at this point, if I'm not able to cornershoot them.

In that case evasive action is the only option, I reckon. It would be the difference between certain and probable death.

With enough speed, you should be able to retread before the mancubus spots you and fires. In any case, the best option is "no getting into this situation"...

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.

I wish I could accelerate from normal to running speed in 0.1s.

When aiming at a tile instead of at a monster, there is a rather annoying difference between aiming within and without LOS: in the former case, the game remembers the location and uses it as a starting point when you fire again, in the latter case is doesn't and firing again will cause you to aim at yourself. Why is this, and can it be fixed so the game will always remember the last tile you aimed at?

Hm, what if you hit TAB to change tactics and then was prompted to choose a direction, so you could "boost" yourself off the ground and start running in that direction?

F**king shamblers, how do they work?

I've been doing some HNTR runs on AoC trying to pick up Gatekeeper gold. On the most recent run, I'd cleared out Hell's Armory, and thought, what the hell, I've been playing a lot of HMP and UV - a shambler on HNTR can't be trouble, right? I mean, I have this plasma shotgun and a lot of cells for it, and a regular shotgun if I run out... this should be no problem. So I pulled the lever. I shot it a couple times, no damage to me, it teleported away. So I waited for it to come back, and it did... fully healed.

And then it killed me in two hits. While I was wearing blue armor.

What the actual hell?

Yeah, they heal. You have to keep the pressure on. With the lower level you are on AoC, it's a challenge.

I've got a question on assemblies. I've decided to try a Sharpshooter technician, made a storm bolter and encountered a strange thing:

The wiki explicitly states:

Quote
Comments/special:    Storm bolters cannot receive additional mods, even with WK2.

Nevertheless, I checked it with a bulk mod and, to my surprise, it was successfully installed on the bolter.

What is it? Was the bolter changed in the latest version, is it a bug or the page at the wiki is outdated?

Well, that bites - I wasn't allowed to slap a P mod on one in 0.9.9.7....

You know you can't mod an assembly crafted before you got WK2, right ?
It's the same reason why you gotta wait to assemble your tac boots if you want to max them to +25%.

Thanks for the hint. I changed the wiki page.

Is there some trick to doing an AoSh run and not running out of shells?  I'm engaging at close range more often than not, my shotguns have a load of power mods on them, but I keep running out of shells a level or two before the Mastermind.

Do I just need a nano pack?  Or would this all be more ammo-efficent with MAD and an elephant gun?
