[M|ArchAo666|66%|YAVP] Dance, varmint, dance!
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:17 »

So, inspired by Sylph's post a while back, I set out to play a Bullet Dance build with two sniper-modded nanomachic combat pistols.  I completed the first one on level 78 and the second one on level 282.  For the first half of the game, I killed everything as I scoured the place for mods, then I had fun drilling stuff with my infinibullets for a bit, then I decided it was too tedious to kill everything somewhere in the 300's, and I just started diving for the stairs on every level.  I fully admit that I did some save-scumming at level 78 because I lost the game to a power failure and had to restore it.  It's not something I normally would do, but I really wanted to complete this game and didn't want to start over again.  (It's the only time I've done it since version 0.9.9.1, I swear!)  I can't really claim any achievement for this game; it was just something fun I wanted to do.  :)

Notes from this run:

I used two agility-modded speedloader pistols until I could get the weaponry I wanted; I put off actually getting Bullet Dance trait until I had the first nanomachic combat pistol because I didn't want it to be a huge drain on my bullet reserves.

I discovered that a bulk-modded burst minigun is an excellent way to store extra bullets!  I had two of them for a while and they held 1040 bullets in two inventory spaces!

I used the Inquisitor set for a while, but switched to the Phaseshift set because extra speed was more important than extra protection, especially in light of the fact that I had to keep maneuvering myself into a position where all my bullets hit my enemies.  If I fired at the wrong angle, the first couple of bullets would knock them back out of the path of the rest of the bullets.

More notes later; I have to go now...

I discovered that a bulk-modded burst minigun is an excellent way to store extra bullets!  I had two of them for a while and they held 1040 bullets in two inventory spaces

Good god, the brilliant stuff you come up with...

Other than that, shouldn't you get a second job or something? :P

Thank you!  :D  And as a matter of fact, I am thinking of doing some job-hunting in the near future.  We'll see how that goes.  :)

Notes, continued:

I never fired the Biggest FG; I just got it for fun.  :P

I assembled the plasmatic plasma shotgun just for fun too...  and I bulk-modded it to better make use of the plasma shotgun full reload bug.  (I killed a Cyberdemon without firing a shot at one point!)  :D

I tried using a fully modded blaster for a bit too, but the trouble is that it had a tendency to miss and destroy the wall behind the enemy, which was a problem, because it increased the chance that the enemy would get pushed out of the way of the path of other bullets.  My weaponry was strongest against enemies that I could back into a corner and hit with the full volley.  Once I was up to full strength, my dual nanomachic combat pistols could bring down Arch-Viles and Bruiser Brothers with one volley and Shamblers and Lava Elementals with two volleys.  (Cyberdemons took four)  Still, I switched to the blasters right at the end, because I found a nano mod on level 557 which let me get a nanomachic blaster, and I found that the plasma damage would sometimes let me do more damage in a volley.  Sometimes, I could bring down Nightmare Arachnotrons and Nightmare Cacodemons with one volley when it took two volleys with the combat pistols, but with the lower accuracy of the blasters, it wasn't consistent enough, so I think I prefered the combat pistols overall.

EDIT:  And on an unrelated note, I saw this in the news on the front page of this site and thought it was funny.  (You might need to refresh a couple times to see it)  :)

Heheh, I was wondering whether you were going to notice - it's been in there for over a month now :)

Having been dubbed Chaosknight, I decided it was time to do something about the underused news banner. So I put in a couple of links to other 'Forge material outside the forum, and to some ...current... noteworthy posts as well. They might be due for a change, but except for the Play-By-Forum board, it's pretty quiet lately...

Erm?

There's a bug in the plasma shotgun where if you use the full-reload, (shift-R) it reloads at 2 seconds for each ammo, potentially taking as long as 60 seconds if it was empty reloading up to 30.  (or longer if it was bulk-modded)  Normally, this would mean death for you, being frozen in place for a full minute, (and some people found this out the hard way) but if you do it while invulnerable, it becomes quite entertaining to watch everyone pound on you, taking damage from each other's shots and all dying horribly.  (Hmm...  sounds like a theme for another DoomRL comic...)  :)

As for the rest, yeah, it's been surprisingly quiet lately!  Is anyone even playing DoomRL lately?  :|
