OK, so we all know Max Carnage is easier than Standard, but given I have a better record on Angel of Berserk than on Standard, it was pretty gratifying for me.

Observations/comments:

Int 2 is crazy overpowered, especially on AoMC. I can see an argument for saying it should disqualify you from rewards based on damage avoidance.

Military Base, "amusingly", provides worse equipment rewards on HNTR than on ITYTD, because the commandos are replaced with low-end elites, meaning no plasma rifles.

I cleared Limbo, but was standing on a staircase island when I finished off the viles. Given I was wearing Tactical Boots and had no envirosuit packs left, dashing across the lava was not going to happen, so no Angelic Armor for me.

The double shotty and power mod were in my bag on the off chance that Hell 7 would spawn a sniper pack and let me finish off Technician Gold.

 39 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 25 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 12 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 11 killed the bitch and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Armorer Platinum and Diamond should be abolished; the Dragonslayer taboo deserves every scrap of mockery it receives.

Wow. You play a faster-than-lightning shotgun build, then tackle Spidey with a plasma rifle? Gutsy.

The Mastermind was nerfed so horribly in 0.9.9.7. It's trivial to beat her now with almost anything. Especially with int 2. Also, in AoMC, you don't have to worry about accuracy or damage, so switching guns is more viable.

Also, that BFG was loaded when I entered the level :)

(I should add that all my instincts are calibrated for environments where shotguns not backed up by AotD tend to suck against bosses.)
