Nanofiber, the basic assembly, _can_ be unequipped and changed. Nanofiber skin (the advanced assembly) or cybernano armor (the master assembly), on the other hand, is cursed and can not be unequipped.

SoB and shotguns:

([8d3] * (1-(0.07*[distance]))) + SoB

or

([8d3 + SoB] * (1-(0.07*[distance])))

I've seen text indicating the former, but my experience is suggesting that it's the latter, or that the nano super shotgun is not the glorious weapon I think it is.

It's the latter.  However, the bigger problem with double shotguns, super shotguns, and the Jackhammer is the fact that each blast causes knockback, which reduces the damage of the second (and third+ for Jackhammer) shot, since they are handled sequentially.

Nice to know I did my math right.  The nano super is still an amazing crowd control weapon, spamming AoE without destroying goodies and armor-piercing to boot.

Thanks, Shark!

(Mmm, third+.  I've had Jackhammer+TH, some day I'll have MAc as well.)

Angel of 666. Wiki says should unlock at Sergeant Major, but I'm Warrant Officer, and the last 3 arch angel challenges are still locked.

Running 64 bit linux, in case that's relevant.


Thanks!

I don't think it matters what machine you're running, because I have the exact same problem.

...I have the exact same problem.
The first of those 2 should unlock at Warrant Officer.  AAoHu is supposed to unlock at 1st Lieutenant.  The only thing I'd can say right now is to double check your player info pages.

Double checked and it definately says Warrant Officer under player info. Next rank is 2nd Lieutenant.

So I just made 2nd Lieutenant, and that unlocked it. Seems the wiki is just incorrect then

Does
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
count as knife? I know it sounds stupid, but I don't want to spoil a medal.
edit: Looks like it does not, as I didn't get my Strongman Gold, not even Silver :((( And I never held anything but a knife, except for breaking a wall in The Vaults.
Or was it because some enemies died from a friendly fire/barrels/lava?

'Knife' means the weapon 'combat knife' and its assemblies. Other blades don't count.

Also, I'm pretty sure (though not 100% sure) that the game just checks what weapon you're holding when an enemy dies and attributes the kill to that.

I've searched this forum, google and the wiki, but I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. What are the following acronyms for?

YASD? (Yet Another Stupid Death?)
YAAM?
YAVP?

Thanks!

YASD - Yet Another Stupid Death
YAAM - Yet Another Ass-kicking Marine (100% kills win)
YAVP - Yet Another Victory Post (Regular win)
YAFW - Yet Another Full Win (Killing JC, usually superceded by YAAM if 100% kills as well)

See also the Mortem rules.

So, I'm new, and I've burned through 50 Doomguys so far. My 3 highest scores are all at the same level: Hell's Armory. How the hell do I beat the dual Shamblers? I've tried explosives in my first run (With a Napalm launcher, was before I found out they're resilient against explosions and invincible against liquids), a Survivalist specced Marine in the second (Ate through me like butter), and a Shottyhead (Almost, one more level and I could've picked it) Scout.

Can't even kill one of them, is there something in the chamber they spawn out of that I can use?

I'm on the medium difficulty, I think, Hey, Not Too Rough.
