I had an easier time achieving this badge than I expected.  (It only took three attempts!)  I went for a Sharpshooter build to maximize ammo efficiency and the lucky find of GCB helped me kick much ass for the rest of the game.  :D  (An evil laugh may have escaped my lips when I first found it)  :P

I probably wouldn't have been confident enough to attempt Hell's Arena if not for the fact that I found an ammochain just before going in.  As it turned out, I didn't even need it, really, because the 20% speed boost conferred by Angel of Light Travel turned out to be a much bigger advantage!  Being able to outrun the Demons made it easier to maneuver them into corpse-stacking positions to help me get rid of the Cacodemon and Baron bodies.  The ammochain I got as a reward was a big help to tide me over until I got the Speedloader Pistol later on.

Once I got the Grammaton Cleric Beretta, things became fairly easy, especially once I got Intuition 2, but once I found the Nano pack in the Armoury which I used to make Gravity Boots, things just became ridiculous!  By the end, I had a walking speed of 0.12 seconds per move and a firing speed of 0.08 seconds per shot!  (which meant that in Autofire mode, I was firing off a full clip of 18 bullets in less than a quarter of a second!)  The only thing I was doing that took any significant amount of time was reloading, but with 18 bullets per clip, I didn't have to do that too often and reloader skill helped take the edge off of it.

I used the single shot mode most of the time for ammo-saving reasons, and also because, with Sharpshooter, each shot consistently knocked enemies back which made it easy to get Shambler's head, knocking enemies out of my visual range before they could fire.  (or sometimes into lava, muahaha!)  :)

Attempting the City of Skulls was probably foolish for this build, considering the abundant bullet-resistant Lost Souls, but I still very nearly pulled it off, bringing the Agony Elemental down to "almost dead" before being forced to retreat from overwhelming forces.  (If only I had been able to fire a couple more shots!)

I was surprised to see Angelic Badge on my medal list because I wasn't even trying to get it!  :o  I happened to pick up Light Amp goggles just before entering the Mortuary, so I was able to gun down most of the enemies before they saw me. When I started the level, five of the Arch-Viles started in my visual range which, under other circumstances, would have been friggin' scary, but with my ridiculously fast firing rate, I was able to cut them down before they could react.

Not much else to say except that I entered the UC and The Vaults for no other reason except that I wanted to get the Explorer Badge.  I still failed to get it, though, because I didn't realize that I had missed The Wall.  :(  Oh well...

One other thing:  I notice that I didn't get the Veteran Diamond Badge.  Is that an bug?  Does it have to be a standard Nightmare game to get that one now?  In the previous version, I achieved it by getting a full win in Angel of Shotgunnery.

EDIT:  One other other thing:  Was I supposed to get the Arachno Silver Badge?  The description says I'm supposed to get that for Angel of Darkness!  (I guess this version still has some bugs to work out!)  :|

EDIT2:  Typos and punctuation errors.  :P

 91 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 76 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 4 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 9 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 4 killed the bitch and survived.
 4 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

Congratulations on YAGR (Yet Another Great Run)! I believe you're a capable enough player to do this even without GCB and Gravity Boots :).

As for the Arachno Silver, the bug was already reported and fixed for 0.996. The devs changed the requirement description but forgot to change the requirements themselves from 0.994 (clear Spider's Lair on UV+).

Sure, sure, my other two attempts could just as easily have succeeded, but they wouldn't have been as interesting as this one.  GCB is a pretty epic find for a pistol build!  :D
