 179 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 154 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 12 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

I don't even understand how to do Nightmare. I mean, most of the levels I spent fleeing in fear like I was playing the first few levels of an AoB game or something. The only level I didn't was the level where I had an invunerability and a berserk at once so I went around shooting things for exp. I mean, how are you supposed to get things stuck on doors or anything?

Spawning in a Cacodemon cave didn't help either. Looking at the log I used 2 medipacks instead of running - I was on exactly 2% hp those times when I medipacked, so running wouldn't have done me much good (N! monsters have like +1092801983098102938129 to hit).

I'm kinda frustrated that I have no idea how to approach this. I have enough trouble with the tanky mobs on level 3 of UV as it is, I have no idea how to even approach doing nightmare.

Nightmare!'s hard, but you actually sound like you're on the right track. Corpse disposal, as you've probably figured out, is the key, as is systematically fleeing until you're in a better position to fight.

Really though, it just takes time to get a feel for the level lay-outs and the safe zones and the AI habits. I've only got two (maybe three? Pretty sure it's just two) Nightmare! wins myself, but my continued playing makes subsequent games slightly easier.

Have you tried N! AoMC?

Actually, without a rocket launcher and absence of barrels it made it hard to dispose of corpses, especially with some of the tankier early game things like hell knights and caco/demons.

And by systematically fleeing I mean running for the stairs asap >_<

I'm going to keep trying but damn, I suck.
