[U|YAFW/YAAM] Elite Platinum and Gatekeeper Diamond
« on: October 06, 2011, 03:25 »

I've heard a number of people say that the Gatekeeper Diamond is the easiest Diamond Badge to earn, but somehow, I've never achieved it until now.  (Probably because I spend too much time playing Nightmare difficulty)  ;)  After so many Nightmare games, it was actually quite a relief to not have enemies respawn any more and the game seemed easy in comparison.  :)

My goal here was to get Elite Platinum and YAAM, (which should probably be called YAAS in this case since I was a scout, not a marine)  :P  and I got Gatekeeper Diamond by luck, since there was an invulnerability on level 14.  I still almost didn't get the Diamond because invuln ran out just before I killed the second Arch-Vile.  (I had charged in and taken out most of the enemies in there with my chainsaw; I had Shottyhead and Berserker by then)  So, there I was, standing two squares away from the severely wounded Arch-Vile, with an almost dead imp on the other side and a wounded demon closing in.  After weighing my options, I used the Arena Master's Staff, which killed the imp, further wounded the demon, and brought the Arch-Vile down to mortally wounded.  (The only time I used the AMS)  I expected the Arch-Vile to shock me in return, but luckily, he didn't and two rapid tactical shotgun blasts later, he died.  Just as he fell, another imp stepped into view from the other direction and I blasted him, just as the demon got up to me and I blasted him too...  which is all pretty funny for me to picture, because thanks to Shottyhead, I was firing 1 shot per 0.25 seconds, so I had just fired 4 shots in three different directions in the space of one second.  :)  After that, I didn't take any chances and used a ridiculous number of shells bringing down the Bruiser Brothers from outside their visual range.

The only other really tense part was the Mortuary, because I ran myself completely out of shells, despite going in there with 300 of them, and getting 60 more from two sergeants I killed in there.  I had to rely on the nuclear plasma rifle I had picked up from the Spider's Lair quite a bit after that.  Two Fire Skulls and a Hatred Skull that I picked up from the City of Skulls were a big help, since they helped me clear out corpses and save ammo.

Nothing much else except that I screwed up getting Shambler's Head due to a barrage from a Commando that I didn't even see.  Oh well, maybe next time...
