Probably ended up killing way too many aliens (ie wasting ammo) but I agree with the assessment that Medic easily is the best pick right now. Decent enough XP bonuses and you can get really far on your 5 medpaks before you need to restock.

I'm not sure if it's a glitch or not but I was able to use the HK MG4 heavy machine gun without a gyrostabilizer. The help file states that you have to have one to use "heavy weapons", but I'm assuming that means the Smartgun only, really. I have yet to find an RPG or Flamer yet, so I dunno. Got myself a Pulse Rifle this time around and holy crap, that baby shreds everything. I tried to conserve ammo for it though and used a sawed-off as my primary alien-dispatching tool and only used the HK for hordes.

That said, I managed to get my butt into Military 3 via Engineering 1->2->Security 2->Military 2->3. It was heavily radiated, so I popped back down to find myself a rad suit and then back up. I was really low on keys, so I didn't expect to do much exploring really, but I got around a corner and got absolutely perforated by two bots lurking there. I thought it was only one and I was trying to get closer to blow him up with the Pulse Rifle. I kinda didn't think about the fact that I wasn't wearing armor at the time, due to the rad suit. Welp.

RIP. Still, my best run yet. I lived for way longer than last time, and I had great luck with item finds.

I'm not sure if it's a glitch or not but I was able to use the HK MG4 heavy machine gun without a gyrostabilizer. The help file states that you have to have one to use "heavy weapons", but I'm assuming that means the Smartgun only, really. I have yet to find an RPG or Flamer yet, so I dunno...

I've wondered about that myself; I've never had any issues using heavy weapons without HW skill or the gyrostabilizer.  Maybe there's an accuracy penalty?  But if there is, it isn't noticeable.  It probably is a bug.

It was heavily radiated, so I popped back down to find myself a rad suit and then back up.

In my experience, I'd much rather have armour that protects me from the aliens than radiation.  The radiation damages you much more slowly.

...but I got around a corner and got absolutely perforated by two bots lurking there...

Ouch!  Even one military bot is tough enough to deal with, let alone two!  :|  I recommend corner-shooting for those guys, even though your accuracy is crap at long range; just use a weapon that fires the 5.56 bullets since they drop a big pile of those when you destroy them.

Yeah, I was confident I could deal with one. I did not see the second one until I was already standing face to face with the one I was intending to kill. RIP :P
