I finally beat Angel of Confidence!  :D  It took maybe a couple hundred tries with 90% of them dying in the first thirty seconds.  :P  (I'm exaggerating, but not by much; this challenge has a really rough start)  Playing as a Technician, I missed the Hellrunner ability that the other classes have, but I think the ability to hack turrets at will made up for that.  :)

Anyway, I decided to lean into the Technician's new advantages and headed right to Remote Hack right at the beginning.  Pretty much every turret in the game got either hacked, or destroyed by another turret that I hacked.  :P  I guess that's why I only reached character level 11, when I was able to reach 14 in other games.  You get double experience for hacking, but you miss out on any experience you would have gained from enemies killed by your hacked friends.  (And at one point, I had the glorious opportunity to remote hack a CRI Bot with full hp, and it went on a rampage, that wiped out half the map, before it succumbed to another CRI Bot)  :D  (EDIT:  Oh, right, derp, Angel of Confidence accounts for having less experience by the end)

And with this game, I advanced to Captain rank!  :D  I no longer get a listing of what badges I need for the next rank; does that mean this is the highest rank?

I wonder if there's any single item I could give the player to make the two first levels easier but not making the rest of the run much easier - ergo ease in those 90% deaths?

A phase device, perhaps?  (Assuming they do what they say they do and guarantee that you teleport somewhere safe)  Most of the time when I died at the start of AoCo, it was because the enemies swarmed the starting room before I could even move a few steps.  In all of the more successful games, they held back long enough for me to at least get to a doorway, so I could bottleneck them and face them more or less one at a time.

Callisto swarms are a problem in every mode, but on AoC you can't use cover to at least mitigate the bulletstorm that comes your way. A Phase Device could work, tbh.

heavier starting weapon maybe? 7.62 instead of 9mm?

I think that might be a bit *too* overpowered.  7.62 rifle is a weapon that can carry you to the end of the game.  I think the purpose of giving the 9mm rifle was to give the player something a little better than the starting pistol, but they'll want to replace it soon anyway.

potentially - unless i have an adv with good stats, i usually ditch it the second i get a chaingun, which on UV is always somewhere still in callisto. might be too OP for lower difficulties. DRL AOC gives you chaingun and shotgun on top of your pistol if thats any comparison point

To each, there own, I guess.  I prefer the 7.62 rifle over the chaingun, myself.  Better accuracy, especially at range, and more ammo efficient, since it does more damage per bullet.  It also suits my usual strategy better, since I frequently target enemies at the edge of my range, or beyond.

Same. But it's sometimes hard to pass up the raw dakka of a P2 Chaingun, if you have the option.

i've found p2a chaingun, especially with an accuracy utility, is still quite effective at long range. overkill skill with this can take down most nasties aside from armoured ravagers. despite the fact that it uses more ammo and less damage per shot, i've never had a problem with ammo shortage, as 7.62 is so common past callisto. i did angel of light travel with this build and didn't have any problems with ammo issues just maintaing one stack
