[U|AoMr|92%|Win] Super Pistols!
« on: March 30, 2007, 13:12 »

I wanted to see just how insane I could get my pistols using the beta on an Angel of Marksmanship challenge, so I went for an all-out speed game. I suppose I could have also done some SoB to increase the damage, but I didn't think of it until afterwards. I could have also done more reloader, but I needed the one level of Ironman early on when I started running into Arachs and Archviles before having many speed mods on my pistol. Hellrunner I took just because I figured that my reloading was already pretty fast at that point with the reload mods and 1 level of reloader. By the end of the game about the only time I was shot at was when I was moving.

I was happy to see the City of Skulls and the Mortuary in this game - those were the two places I was hoping to take on to see just how powerful my pistols were.

I found out that the City of Skulls was a breeze. It was almost a let down after having been killed in there on so many other normal games (trying to take it on with a chaingun for example). The thing that made it possible, though, was having 3 phase devices. The second one took me to a side where I could take the Pain Elementals and Lost souls out from one direction.

On the other hand, the Mortuary was a nightmare. I managed to kill 5 AVs, but began to be overwhelmed and had to flee. Before going into the Mortuary I had 2 red armors and a pile of about 6 large medpacks. After fleeing I only had 1 red armor (I hadn't taken the time to put the other one on) and had used all but 2 of my medpacks. The 92% kill rate was from fleeing the Mortuary, meaning that there were already 49 enemies on that level by the time I got out of there and the count kept going up.

Before and after the Mortuary I ran into 2 Arach caves which each had 11 Arachs in it. Those were great. I ended up gaining another level of Whiz Kid so I could apply the last few mods I had been holding onto. I was only one reload mod shy of maxing out my pistol. I almost squeezed out level 13 before getting to Cybie.

Cybie was easy also. I unloaded my full pistols (19 shots), reloaded, unloaded again, and reloaded. While reloading Cybie shot his first rocket at me which hit and did a little damage. At this point he was already at Heavily Wounded. I unloaded my pistols again, taking him to Mortally Wounded, reloaded, and almost emptied my pistols again to finish him off (only one bullet left in the gun). So it took 75 bullets (not all hit obviously). Cybie never moved one square and only got to fire one rocket. That is some serious speed in those pistols.

My mortem always crashes at this point.

Here is another example of the speed in action. On level 20, I opened a door and found a room full of 8 cacos, a demon, and one other unidentified enemy who died immediately when a caco shot (probably a former foo).
Run - direction...
 You open the door. You are hit! You hear the scream of a freed soul!

Here is after I finished killing them all. A few of the cacos moved one square and only one managed to fire although he only hit his comrades, wounding them and killing the demon.

Yep, those pistols can be pretty badass when you get the mods for 'em.  My experiences with the City of Skulls, however, lead me to think that your use of three phase devices was rather wasteful.  Unless you only had one speed and reload mod at the time (which can be a problem on occasion), you should have been able to waste all the skulls in your view before they could reach you, and thus be very able to proceed without harm.  It's completely possible that it takes at least 300 bullets to knock down the skull city that way, but I'd rather have the bullets anyway.

Oops.  Didn't see this was a U win.  Nice job!  ...Probably a lot more skulls around in UV...
