-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 49 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 33 of those were killed.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 9 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 9 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------
For my first speed run attempt, I came up with a brilliant game plan.
Strategy: Run for the stairs.
Side strategy: Grab invulnerability globes.
Backup strategy: Shotgun to the face.

I swear, I probably spent almost 5 minutes simply taking down the cyberdemon.  Shotgun was crappy against his armor, chaingun took too long to reload and I got blasted in the face, and I only had the ammo that came with the plasma rifle (could have grabbed a second one easily at one point, but hey, I was in a hurry).  If I had remembered about it, I would have tried to get Cyberdemon's Head, but since he spawned like 3 squares away, that would have been hard.  So a whole ton of shells later and he finally goes down.

Two more bronze badges to my credit, and 7 to go.  Can I beat Tormuse to all of them?  No, probably not.
