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

 89 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 70 of those were killed.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 15 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 12 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

Despite my graduation to HMP, I decided to do some ITYTD runs to grab the UAC Star (silver cluster), which I had in a previous version of the game for some reason and thus really wanted again. Cateye proved even more useful than I thought along with Intuition 2, and to my surprise I also got the Untouchable Badge, probably because of my predilection for grabbing the generous amounts of invulns and eventually just running for the stairs when I got my 50 killstreak. Didn't even need any of those tactical armor whatsits after all.

I'm curious how it's possible to get the gold cluster. I assume it involves something suitably redonkulus like finding out how to use the Dragonslayer+Berserk and then whirlwinding/kiting everything in your way, but maybe I'm wrong.

Got mine on an A100 Sharpshooter run with INT2 and enough firepower (knockback) to prevent things from entering my line of sight :)

Only managed it once though.

The easiest way is probably to start some N! game (or lesser skill with AoD), and kill 100 times a poor former :)

Other possibilities include using int2 or CatEye, of course.
I think nukes can be another alternative.  Either with trigun and some HPD, to nuke several levels, or with a good timing in mortuary.
I'm not sure City of skulls could be a good solution : farming elementals is probably a pain.

And finally, you can do it without any of this, using just cornershooting + waiting at the good spots.

Anyone who's watched my videos can atest that I'm not very good at avoiding getting hit.  :)  I spend most of my games with a Bronze Star at best, but I often move up to Gold Star at City of Skulls.  Go in there with a Combat Shotgun and lots of shells and it's pretty easy to get 100 kills without taking damage.
