I randomly felt like playing DRL today and decided to try for a Platinum badge, but I'm a bit of an overachiever, so I tried for two Platinum badges at once.  :P  I've tried it a bunch of times before, but this was the first time I was successful, thanks in large part to how generous this game was with health and ammo.  (5 shellboxes and I was just swimming in med packs!  There was an extended section where I was walking around with over ten of them!)  :o

Combining Angel of Darkness with Angel of Red Alert meant that I had to balance sight with speed.  I considered getting a Cateye build, which might have been a better choice, since it would help in locating the exit faster, but decided a Gunrunner build would be more fun.  :)  (After getting a couple levels of Intuition, so I wouldn't be totally stumbling around in the dark)  :P  I mostly tried to clear out every level for the experience, up until I got Gunrunner partway through Deimos, after which I just charged the exit on every level.

I normally don't bother with Double Shotguns, but this is a build where it would have been most welcome, but strangely, I never found one in the entire game!  :|  In this kind of game, I normally carry a Chaingun and Plasma Rifle around as backups in case I run out of shells, but I was getting so many shells that I actually ended up throwing the CG and PR away.

I had intended to build a Micro Launcher for the accuracy boost, so I could maximize the use of Gunrunner, but I found a Missile Launcher in Deimos Lab, which is even better.  :)  By the time I got to Tower of Babel, I had a running speed of 0.38 seconds per move, so I was pelting the Cyberdemon with almost three rockets per second!  :D  And by the time I reached Dis, I was up to 0.28 seconds per move, so I was hitting the Mastermind with almost four rockets per second!  :D  (After drilling her with devastating Railgun fire at the same rate)

And now, it's time to update the badge display in my sig.  :)

That combination of challenges sounds like one of the Angelic pairings... and if you need both a benevolent RNG and Tormuse level skills to complete it, then it should indeed be Angelic.

Should we call that number 10, then? ;)

I'm tempted to say it wasn't difficult enough to warrant Angelic status, since it only took me something like 10 tries to get it, but then again, there's a wide range in difficulty in Angelic badges, from Everyman, which took over 200 tries, to Shottyman, which you might get by accident, without even realizing there's a badge for it.  :P

So yeah, maybe it could be an Angelic badge in some future version.  :)
