I'm starting to get along with MSs pretty well, so I tried to see how it works on Ao100. The results were plain awesome.

I went with the philosophy that speed is the key, and this was achieved pretty easily. Upon getting MSs, my T-modded plain pistol was firing at 0.32s speed for 11 damage per shot - good enough at that point of the game. Then I went for WK for assamblies, Int2 to even improve my positioning, and HR2 and DM for even more speed. At that time, along with lucky finds of the Boots of the Crawling Chaos and a fireproof phaseshift armor pushed movespeed to 0.31s. Upon assembling cerberus boots (and later replacing those with Enviroboots) and using them as a switch, acid and lava were no threat at all.

Later, after reaching Rel3 and SoG5, the speeds were 0.23s movement, 0.1s fire and 0.48s reload. I was faster than anything the game could throw at me, and most of the monsters did not even get to act once before falling.

By the way - fireproof phaseshift armor is quite awesome. With my movespeed, it pretty much negated revenants' attacks - I got hit by the rocket, and got knocked back before damage was calculated, which effectively granted me Fireangel as long as I was moving. Too bad I lost this armor due to carelessness and three barons hitting at once ...

While my both active and passive defenses were about as good as one can get, offensive was quite a different matter. I didn't find _any single_ exotic/unique pistol for freaking 92 levels! No GCB, no blaster, no nothing. In fact, the high power pistol (2d6) [4/4] in my inventory took me pretty much through the whole game! Reloading after each four shots is not funny for too long, but I still was able to kill Viles before they could land their attacks, and even those two Cybies (at level 86 and 89) could only fire three rockets before dying.

I know that I could have at least assembled a storm bolter, but due to reliable knockback I was afraid of wasting too much ammo. In the end, this turned out to be a non-issue, as I was finding ammochains left and right throughout the whole game.

Then at last on level 93 I found a combat pistol and high-powered and P-modded it to (3d6) [10/10]. If you think MSs is effective, then think about MSs, SoG5 and this beast. If I consider the knockback issues for semi- and automatic modes, I believe that even GCB falls short here. Cacos? Two shots. Barons and Viles? Four. Bruisers? Five. Shamblers? Six. Cybie? If he fired his rocket and I dodged it, he wouldn't get time to fire another one, even if I had to reload once. Even N! viles had no chance to unload their attacks.

Really, the only sad thing is that I didn't get this beast earlier ...

Well, so, there. Next I might try to grab a similar win on UV :).
