Try doing it with Ammochain. It's a lot easier than you'd suspect. All you do is phase and then make your way to a corner, and then stand and chainfire, walking it back and forth over the enemies, wrecking them. I almost never use a shotgun for the City of Skulls, since I'm usually either doing a restricted game, melee, or Ammochain.

However, tac shotties will work very well indeed. RLs don't work too well, since the reload time will kill you and the RL's DPS is just way too low compared to a dedicated build. Not only that, but it's damage drops off too fast with range.

RLs don't work also because lost souls have 75% fire resistance. *wink wink*

To pass the City of Skulls, all one really needs is a double-shotty and a shell box, one of which is guaranteed in Hell's Armory.
All you need is basic Shotgun and Shell Box ;) .

One can use BFG to clear initial LS swarm (one shot up, one shot down), then switch to Shotgun / Elephant Gun and make your way through the level.
Keep walking near walls, rather than going to centre.

MAc is great there, but using it alone is dangerous vs Agony. I have lost some runs there only because it died next to me, spawning swarm of PEs and LSs.
Rocket / Missile Launcher is ok against Agony, but it can destroy the skulls.

And once again: do not underestimate Shotgun / Elephant Gun.

:)

Note to self: Even if you're on AoMC on an ammochain build, keep a shotgun AT THE VERY LEAST for the final wave of enemies that spawn upon the Agony Elementals death. Trust me, I learned that the hard way on UV AoMC.

True.
I learned it the same way, but in a bit harder challenge (AoCn) :P .
