 Before him 6 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 5 of those were killed.


 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I am posting mortems like they're nothing, huh.

Anyway. This run was quite good. Cleared Hell's Arena (almost got the Key, but was hit once by the last enemy, a cacodemon), didn't go for the CC because every time I try I get torn apart, got to the Armory and saw the unique message.
My first thought: "RNG, you have decided to repay me for the Onyx Pack I didn't use!"
The actual weapon was in the weapon pile guarded by demons. And they should have guarded it better.
The Jackhammer is the single BEST weapon on DoomRL I've ever used (and I haven't used many). The Shambler, who is usually a royal pain in the arse didn't even hit me. The glorious three-round buckshot bursts and ridiculous knockback of the Jackhammer did it all. With MAD, I was a god. Barons couldn't do anything, Revenants couldn't even get close, the only thing that really posed a threat were Arachnotrons if they surprised me. My tactics were: use the tactical shotgun as main, keep Jackhammer in prepared for Barons/anything tougher. That tactic was the best I've ever used. The Hellgate was a cakewalk. The first wave of enemies did three times more damage to me than the Bruisers. The level after the Hellgate was to be the level karma would have its revenge for the demons I had slain.

As soon as I entered the level OH GOD FORMER COMMANDOS OH GOD OH GOD. Three of them right next to my spawn. I chose tactical shotgun over Jackhammer, and that's probably the reason I'm not posting [M|99%|21] right now. Three bursts of plasma later, low health. Also, it turns out that the Jackhammer has some kind of failsafe that stops me abusing the corners that I so love. At almost no health, I decided to homing phase device away!
The stairs were just outside my view range, and I was cut down by a single blast from a sergeant.

My best run ever?
My best run ever.

All shotguns have this 'failsafe', in that certain corners are impossible to shoot around.

Bad luck, eh. Also, you may want to carry some more shells around if you're packing the Jackhammer...

The annoying thing with the corner-shooting mechanics is the weird asymmetries - firing around a corner to skim the north face of a wall that runs east-west feels like it should be exactly the same as firing around a corner to skim the east face of a wall that runs north-south, but it isn't.

I think the even more accurate comment on the subject of shells here is "If you are using shotguns, make sure you do Halls of Carnage, since it's 100% guaranteed to spawn and provides a pleasingly large quantity of shotgun shells."

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

Yes, you wouldn't have lasted long past the Hellgate anyway with that little shells. When I've got the Hammer I try to keep 6 stacks or more and I still run out usually. MAD was a pretty good choice though. I haven't thought about how much that must wreck. With Juggler that'd be sick.

All in all though I prefer the Super Shotgun. See my post for details....
