remote hack makes this challenge a lot easier to progress with, i accidentally got meleed by my own friendly cri bot when it walked into me. last few levels i was completely dry on ammo except for one bullet in the golden gun. lots of siege ravagers and archreavers chasing me through the last level, thought i might get lucky and be able to smoke/gas/grenade my way out but no such luck

I'm impressed! I didn't believe this was actually reasonably playable on anything else except Scout (due to the stairs reveal)

thanks! i had tried a couple scout runs in 0.8.6 and despite a better evade ability, hellrunner and stair location, i felt the reduced gun slot was a major hinderance. its incredibly satisfying to hack the turrents on the level and hearing a bunch of shooting and explosions in the distance

Cool, I've been going back and forth between Scout and Technician for exactly those reasons, but yeah, the ability to hack stuff now should help this challenge.

it really helps with the bullet sponge monsters in europa onward like reavers and ravagers. right now friendlies seem content to shuffle around in a fixed location - i tried moving a combat drone down a one width corridor in the same fashion that i'd do with a nethack dog/cat but it didn't want to go anywhere, so you have to lure monsters into where your friends are, which is slightly more risky, but at least provides some manner of disposing of them without wasting all your ammo
