 875 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 839 of those were killed.
 3 of those were killed by something unknown.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 25 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 6 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 6 killed the bitch and survived.

I'd gotten to the SM a bunch of times before playing AoSh, but couldn't ever beat her. I finally switched to a pure move-speed based build, then got lucky with Maleks and phaseshift boots. That allowed me to ignore WhizKid and take a few ranks of Ironman, which really helped with the Mortuary. I picked up a third rank of HR right before Dis.

My movespeed was, I think .27 secs, and my firespeed was .20 secs. That's ridiculously fast. Arch-Viles didn't stand a chance. I was able to unload that entire Assault Shotgun on the SM and then get to cover around the other corner of the pillar, and reload, without her getting into attack position.

Really glad I finally was able to kick this one off the list. I managed to correct a lot of mistakes in my playstyle, and use my ridiculous speed to actually not get hit rather than encourage a false sense of security.

Shottyhead is freaking awesome with an assault/plasma shotty. Looks like you had a really good run. Congrats!

I got the Assault Shotgun at the Mortuary, which I think it's guaranteed at. Until then, the Tac Shotty I had served me perfectly well. I'd planned on making a focused DS, but then I found phaseshift boots and Necroarmer/Malek's and the need for WK2 went away. This game gave me lots of mods and lots of great finds, usually I either get good mods or nothing at all. I threw away more power mods than I used in this one. I didn't realize how good Malek's was until I looked at the movespeed. +30% is ridiculous. Only thing that would have made this run more badass would have been a nano mod for gravity boots.

I generally have alot of trouble breaking through enemy armor in an AoSh run, which is why I always take MAD, just so I don't have to deal with that. I tried a Shottyhead build, but when I couldn't really injure the Agony elemental in CoS, I realized one of the Shotgun's crippling weaknesses: Armor.
Other than that, congratulations!

With a Double Shotty and Shottyman, the AE goes down hard. You just have to know the DS's spread pretty well so that souls/pain elementals don't get outside of it. Just get close and keep blasting. Move, blast, move, blast. Takes a little while, but it's easy. I actually don't pick up any of the rewards, I just do it for easy XP.

Going to try winning a regular HMP game now with Shottyhead. My difficulty at the moment is tweaking my CC+ strategy. My old strategy of slaughtering the cacos outside with the guaranteed DS from HA, then picking up two zerks to deal with the AM, again with the DS, saving the last one for after the fight, isn't working because the HKs aren't as easy to kill with just a shotgun. May have to bring out the RL, but without any mods, I'm worried it won't be an effective weapon.

In some ways, the hell knights in CC+ are easier to deal with than cacos. If you cornershoot from inside the first room, hell knights will only be able to approach you along the safe paths between the lava, so you have more control over where they move. If they manage to get all the way to one of the door tiles, next to your cornershooting position, hopefully they'll already be injured enough that one last push into the lava will finish them off.

That works for the two on the left, but I'm wary about approaching the two on the right that way because losing one or both of the zerks really makes dealing with the AM difficult.
