So I think this run made up for my last batch of idiocy getting myself locked in the vaults.  I consider this my first real full win, all the others I had were either ITYTD or HNTR.  Finally beat the game on HMP, and it was a full win to boot which I wasnt even going for, just wanted the silver badge for sergeant.  I managed to jump from corporal to sgt. major which made me quite happy.

So the majority of this run I had very little good armor, it kept getting destroyed shortly after I got it, in fact for the last half of deimos I was running around in either green armor or no armor.  Only reason I beat cybie is because there was an invuln globe RIGHT next to the stairs to him which was a life saver.

Once I got whizkid though things turned around really fast, 3 power mods on a plasma rifle is ok and all, but putting 3 power mods on a laser rifle is omgwtfthisthingispowerful.

Took 3 ranks of eagle eye as well to make SURE every single shot from this thing would hit.  And hit it did. nothing survived more than 2 volleys from this sucker.  I love it.  I wish I could say if I loved it more than the bfg10k, but the only time I got one of those was very close to Dis and didnt get to use it much.  The pinpoint accuracy + SoaB + power mods is all I could ever need or want.

The only thing that bothers me is that last 2% that kept me from YAAM and probably another badge...

 13 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 9 of those were killed.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

What did you miss? Or was it one of those "What - I missed something?" moments?

Discovered this page recently : http://doom.chaosforge.org/wiki/Accuracy

Looks like 3rd level of EE isn't that useful, and since laser rifle already got an insane accuracy, I think one point is maximum you could need. (except maybe for radarshooting, but I doubt you did a lot without ammochain or nuclear plasma)
Sob3 would have been way more useful (and Fin could have been good too) to increase your DPS.
Also, just in case you don't know it : knocking back your targets out of sight is usually inneficient, since the rest of the burst misses a lot. I started an Ao666 game recently, and didn't took SoB 5 just to avoid risking to get 12 damages on my plasma rifle's attacks (which might be stupid, considering enemies got armors... but I didn't want to take any risk)
