 68 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 59 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 5 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------
So the this was my first HMP run, and since my last run as Ammochain seemed to be pretty lucky, I figured I'd give it another shot. Everything was going pretty well. Not only did Armory give me a firestorm pack and a laser rifle, but the vaults provided me with a BFG 10k, which much to be delight, I discovered worked with Ammochain. My last Ammochain run had also provided me with a laser rifle, which I had later turned into a burst laser rifle that had served me quite well, so I was intent on making a new one. Unfortunately while the RNG was generous with the weapons, it was stingy with the power mods. I had only found one, which I used to make a tactical shotgun for the first boss. By the time I had gotten to Mortuary, I had still yet to find another, bit I knew there should be one at one of the mortuary exits. I wasn't able to do City of Skulls at the point I had reached it, so I didn't have any Rage Skulls to smooth things over, but I figured my laser rifle and BFG 10K would serve me well enough. Indeed, they were quite useful, but the endless waves of enemies raised by those pesky, ever-fleeing Archviles eventually wore down my health and ammo reserves until I had 40% health, no heath packs, and only the ammo still inside the magazines. But I still didn't have that power pack. At any point, I could have left safely, but there I was no way I was letting those asshole coward archviles keep my pack from me. And so it was that the RNG that had saw how I meet it's generosity with only more greed saw it fit to end my hubris once and for once, and leave me to my sell deserved, self-inflicted fate.

Not a bad run - I'm a fan of Ammochain myself, using it right now for an AAo666 run to excellent effect.

I haven't really tried it in a normal game, given how long it takes to set up at the expense of other traits, but apparently it works nicely there, too. Better luck with the modkits next time.

Edit: Huh... I just got a BFG 10k and... it doesn't work with ammochain. How come yours did?

The BFG10k should cost four per shot instead of 20, with Ammochain. At least, other weapons with cost bonuses per shot still take more cost on that first shot than usual, it's just the extras that are free.

I don't know for sure, of course, because the BFG10k is literally the last unique I have to find. :(

Oh, alright... mine cost 5 per shot... I thought that was the default, since, you know, it's a rapidfire weapon, and what good are those if you get 2 shots per magazine? Also, I read Ammochain to mean any rapidfire weapon would only use 1 round per firing, so I thought the 5 meant it wasn't working. Well, good, it did work... too bad it killed me, lol. That thing does so much damage...

It's a BFG!

It just pretends to be a rapid fire weapon. :) But yeah, I assume that's why it has such a short clip/high damage.

You can see the rapid fire thing with an Assault Rifle, which is why I figured that was how it worked. Chugs two per ammochain shot instead of one, because it doubles the per shot ammo cost.

Generally makes Assault Rifle kinda poor with Ammochain, but not totally bad. I made an Assault Rifle Nuclear Plasma Rifle with another Nuclear Plasma Rifle on a Ao100 run-the high accuracy on the mod made up for things and I was literally not using up my huge clips between the two. (Dualwielding Nuclear Plasma Rifles is hilarious. Not something you get to do outside of Ao100 though.)
