I'm quite a defender of Sharpshooters here in the forums, acknowledging their tougher start but also their incredible offensive power once MSs kicks in. And so it was in my case as well.

I've had quite a lucky start, as in the early levels I could always find a sweet spot and let enemies simply come for their deaths. I only faced a few Barons and once MSs kicked in, everything except Viles was going down in a single clip. I assembled a high power pistol to kill the smaller ones quicker. Little did I know that this weapon will stay with me well until the seventies, and even afterwards I was using a P3B2 normal pistol. Too bad that I didn't find a single combat pistol to unleash the full bulletstorm.

The Anti-Freak Jackal was a godsend - it granted me all I ever needed in corpse-disposal department, making Viles much easier to deal with.

Single-enemy-type levels were fun. Viles with nothing to revive? Easy. Mancubi? Too slow to fire even once. Nightmare demons? An advancing wall of doom kept at bay by AFJ and its knockback.

Thanks to Int2, I didn't need too much in movespeed department, so I was wearing cerberus boots ever since I could assemble them. To my surprise, cerberus armor and boots have a fixed movespeed penalty, no matter from what item they were assembled. However those two or three lava run levels were ridiculous with those boots.
However, cerberus armor _does_ keep original resists, making cerberus ballistic vest one of the best assemblies in the game (70% fire and plasma resist, 50% resist everything else). Sadly I didn't find a second onyx pack, and the nano pack was found on the very last level. Still, I was able to tank two Cybies at once anyway.

The VBFG9000 was not used a single time - but it was my last advanced assembly to create for Technician Platinum. With four master assemblies out of the way and three to go, I'm closing in on my second diamond here.

The nastiest moment arrived on level 97, which I cleared - only to find myself with twenty four bullets in my three guns and not a single bullet to reload. With only three floors to go, I picked up a combat knife to fall back on. I thought about just making a break for the stairs if need be - my defenses and medpacks would likely carry me through. So I braced myself and entered level 98 ...

... to find three captains right in my iron sights.

Pop. Pop. Pop ...

And suddenly I had over 400 bullets, and I was back on track again. The sigh of relief must've been heard in miles around.

With that, I cleared 98 and 99, won the "Suddenly monsters come from everywhere!" challenge on level 100 (including my last Cybie) and won. All of this was not enough to grant me Experience Cross - guess I'll have to make a YAAM Ao666 for that :).

Well. With this challenge completed, I guess it's time to work on the Strongman badges a bit - for Archvile rank, I only need a few hundred melee kills. But first, I'll have a beer for a little celebration :).

I've also noticed that Experience Cross requires Ao666 inorder to gain. I've seen plenty of UV Ao100 Runs where 24 was the highest level achieved(on a YAAM run). Cratz!

Two Platinum badges!  Nice!  :D  Looks like it was quite a ride.  :)  Lucky thing those Captains came along at the last minute; that's the kind of situation where it's handy to have an Energy Pistol as a spare, just in case you can't find enough bullets.

And yeah, it's impossible to get level 25 in Ao100 unless you're playing Nightmare!  In ArchAo666, however, any difficulty level can do it.  (If you don't mind a lot of grinding)  :)

Even better is Cerberus Gothic armour, because it has 200% maximum durability and the fixed movement rate actually becomes a speed increase!  :)
