[N!|21%|YAVP] UAC Diamond
« on: October 09, 2018, 05:48 »

So in my last post (https://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,8314.0.html) I mentioned that I was really close to getting a pretty decent jump in rank. All I needed was a to get a gold/platinum/diamond run. Turns out 'only' needing a diamond is, uh, tricky. I gave up and started trying for that ever elusive Marksman Diamond (I've been trying for ages now) and approximately 100 attempts a few weeks later I was... frustrated. So I started browsing through the forums looking for advice when I found this: https://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,7290.msg64012.html#msg64012 and I thought to myself - that looks like fun, maybe I should try?

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

 720 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 665 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 10 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 26 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 18 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 12 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

That was awesome. I had tons of luck (three really nicely timed invulnerability globes) and basically did a kamikaze stair dive the whole way. So I've done it: jumped from Lt. Colonel to Lt. General in one game :-)

Thanks! I'm kinda proud of the time - seems to be slightly faster than average for a UAC :-) Then again, having seen your run I can confidently say it's faster because I'm not as good a player - I skipped the Cathedral (didn't want my invulnerability to run out) and zerked up at the chained court and just ran for it...

So... While you're here and the forums are quiet: any advice for the Marksman Diamond? I've managed to get a few good runs going but I keep screwing things up in Deimos - I've underestimated the Armory three times now and got flattened by the Revenants in Deimos as well (got out alive but burnt all my medpacks - didn't get much further) so I'm tempted to just skip all special levels. The problem is the Anomaly uses up all my resources. My strategy there is to use not assemble the speedloader pistol but rather use the agility mod to try and get tactical boots. Then I run like hell through the anomaly and hope for the best. It works pretty well but you tend to burn through med packs...

nice run, the chainsaw stairdives are a lot of fun and can get pretty intense at the end, especially when the clock is ticking

re marksman diamond, i never really got anywhere with that one, but in addition to tormuse's run, there are these two gunkata runs on youtube
