I tried to get the Gambler's Shield medal yesterday and failed because ultimately I couldn't resist nuking everything, so here's my next attempt:

Levels with levers were not too frequent, but Deimos Lab got generated, which is great with the 6 guaranteed levers. I did get Millitary base instead of Phobos Lab with 3 levers though. Most pulls I got was Deimos 2 - three uses of repair armour (since I only had onyx modded red and tactical boots, I had to pick up random boots and walk thru acid to be able to repair them), three uses of summon enemies (and a nearby invulnerability, though it would have been managable with a phase) and one destroy walls lever. Other than that, RNG didn't send all that many lever rooms my way.

Original plan was to go for WK after getting Cateye and a level of EE, but I managed to clear the Anomaly without a scratch, so I went for dodgemaster right away for Cybie. The plan worked and I finally reearned my second diamond badge. Good to have that out of the way.

Deimos Lab was generous with mods, giving me both onyx and nano mods, so I slapped the first one on my red armour so I wouldn't have to deal with it and put the nano mod on one of the three missile launchers I found in this game. Really, Cateye is made for rocket launchers. So much carnage! I did have to be careful not to blow up any levers, but once I've scouted each level a bit, I could unleash the infinite barrage of explosives safely. The Wall was a joke with it, and it saved my butt in the City of Skulls. I've saved a double shotgun and moderate amounts of shells since there's a lever in the City, but it seems moderate doesn't cut it. Infinite rockets open up a lot of possibilities. Even though the skulls could take up to 4 rockets due to their damn fire resistance, I was able to slowly and safely clean the last remaining elementals, including the one of Agony.

It took some time until I was able to upgrade the launcher to nanomachic, but it was so worth it. Too bad I still had to preserve the levers.

I did have to do some stupid stuff to pull all the generated levers. In hell, I had to make a pool of lava next to a lever and walk around in it long enough for the damage to tactical boots to remain twice. I really should have taken some damagable boots/armour with me. I also had to trigger one "floods with lava" and I missed the level feeling. Luckily, I had an envirosuit, so when the whole level got flooded, I could make it safely to the stairs.

At Hell 5, I finally pulled my 25th lever. I knew there are two more in Dis, so from then on I allowed myself more fun with the missile launcher.

I wasn't prepared to deal with the Lava Pits, but Hell 6 gave me two invulnerabilities near stairs, so I could have homing phased through the last level and get a full win (which would have been great seeing I'm still missing Veteran Platinum Badge) but I didn't want to part with YAAM. I hoped I'd find another invuln before Dis, but no luck.

In any case, Mastermind was a piece of cake with my movement and fire speeds and Int2.

All in all a fun game. All of you, saying Gambler's Shield is pure luck, try it as well. You might find it's not so hard after all, and you can even do it on HNTR if you're not ready for UV just yet.
