[H|AoP+AoMC|YAAM] Scout McCheesy, the Conqueror
« on: July 10, 2018, 13:01 »

I wanted to nab yet another badge for a while, and yesterday this Sunday my choice fell on the Inquisitor Gold Badge (to remind, that's to complete AoP on any difficulty). To ease the task, I've went for dual-angeling my favorite cheesy combo of AoMC+Int2+Shotguns, on HMP. I think it's obvious why I call it "cheesy", and while it does depend somewhat on the luck (getting surrounded by monsters on level generation will almost always be the end of a poor Scout, especially so on the early levels), this time I didn't have any particularly bad patches and managed to succeed on the first try.

Notables:
  • Found enough nukes to earn the Fallout Gold Cross while holding on to the nuclear BFG to the end.
  • At the very end, shot the FINAL EVIL with an overloaded high-power BFG. I hoped it would be more powerful, but oh well.
  • Assembled a plasmatic double shotgun, then slapped myself in the face (figuratively). >_>
  • Carried a Combat Translocator from the Armory through the entire game, but used it barely once or twice. I find it ralely comes in handy at all, but I still kept it in case of emergency.

This mortem is less to record an achievement and more to illustrate the tip I'd like to share: if you're struggling with getting a particular badge, consider pairing it with AoMC and play it as Scout+Int2. Not every challenge can be paired like this, of course, but some, especially the hardest ones... I got the Masochist Platinum this way, too (also Conqueror, I think).

Trying to do the same now, but on UV. Platinum, platinum~ :>

 23 killed the bitch and survived.
 26 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Heh, yeah, I think it's safe to say that AoMC has a long history of helping people achieve badges and medals.  In fact, I got my very first Diamond badge with the help of that challenge!  :D

Still, what you did is a pretty nice achievement.  :)  I don't think I even have Inquisitor Gold, (AoP scares me) so congrats!  :D

Oh! I didn't realise it was already a thing. Then again, some players might not know about it yet, and I hope this tip will be of some value if they accidentally stumble upon it. :3

Muahahaha! Fear my Inquisiting power! 0w0
I actually attempted another AoP run a while ago, with a similar build. Got blown to smithereens by a hell knight because hubris and haste. >_>
Thank you! ^^
