Hi, quick question - Will I get Malicious Knives Cross medal when I use chainswords, or do I have to stick to (modded) combat knives?

Per my knowledge, chainswords do indeed count as knives for Malicious Blades, so I expect they also work for the MKC(wish I'd known that when I got mine - combat knife all the way, lol). I stand willing to be corrected, however, if someone more knowledgeable happens to disagree with me.

I would run a quick ITYTD MKC to check, but I'm in the middle of a 666 run at the moment, so you'll have to either run it yourself, or hope someone more certain then I am comes along and posts ;)

According to the Wiki, chainsword indeed counts as a knife, and as such is eligible for both Knives Cross (and similar badges) and for MMB master trait.
(It would be quite a pointless assembly if it didn't.)

What's better for Archangel of travel, Ammochain:
* Red Armor(P), Tower Shield or Blue Armor(O)?
* Tactical boots or lava steel boots?
(I don't want to lose the insane speed bonus, though protection is also very attractive)

EDIT: Ended up with Tac boots, O pack in inventory and Red(P) armor on. Next level yielded another Red armor, and I slapped an O-mod on it.

Confirmed. Did the run with dual chainswords, got the medal.

I appreciate that reply, thanks. On a somewhat related note, are there still issues with damage attribution as far as awards like Sunrise Iron Fist and Malicious Knives Cross are concerned, and if so, are there also plans to adjust that? I recall a mortem in which monster deaths not caused by the player which occurred while the player had different weapon equipped were counted as kills for that weapon, despite the fact that the weapon itself did no damage.

Edit: Link to the above mortem

There is a fix for that in the repo. You'll see it when the next beta comes out.  Kills track what the source of the killing blow was and don't just automatically assign the kill to the held weapon.  So for the Grammaton Cleric Cross, you actually have to kill the Mastermind with that weapon.

While I have your attention, is it possible for you to clarify the description of the Vampyre Master Trait in the next release?

Currently it states that you gain +3 HP upon killing an enemy - however, in practice, the amount of HP gain seems to be related to the enemy killed. In my current game, to list a few examples, I'm getting +1%(of 110 HP) for formers, +4% for basic arachnotrons, and +7% for nightmare demons.

This was part of a balance change for 0.9.9.5 that got reverted before release then re-reverted for 0.9.9.6.  Vampyre awards 10% of the target's max hp (rounding up).  I'll go ahead and update the description.

...and I will go ahead and mix things up more for DS + BA so everyone can continue to hate me or something.

Yes yes, keep on hating me.  Blame me, censure me, chide me.

Meanwhile, next quick question.
