-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 1237 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1059 of those were killed.
 12 of those were killed by something unknown.
 61 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 40 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

--------------------------------------------------------------

I was wondering what other diamonds I could get with my melee scout strategy and I realised that Lightfoot Diamond - N! AoLT without any melee kills - would suit it perfectly! While blademaster is obviously of no use to me, because I'll never actually get the killing blow on anything with a melee weapon, the first 5 traits (well, the first two and the fifth one) are still extremely handy.

Berserker gets me through levels by making me almost invincible on demand, all endgame enemies and napalm barrels will trigger it. It also allows me to deal decent damage with the chainsaw - enough to bring barons to very low HP in one berserked attack - and was my main damage dealer in boss fights befrore executing them with a BFG shot.

I mistakenly went in to the halls of carnage, but I had a homing phase device so everything was fine. My original plan was to kill the bosses by getting them to almost dead with the chainsaw then repeatedly shotgunning them but the mastermind almost killed me. I was very grateful for my mistake when I only needed one final shot from the BFG that I got through happenstance.

A melee build for a challenge that forbids you to use melee?  Now I've seen everything!  :D

Nice one!  And a very intriguing strategy!  :)
