Got carried *hard* by that advanced Launcher. The ability to stun turrets and shroud enemies in toxic gas, doing chip damage and blinding them was crucial to making it through the later parts of Io and Beyond.

I made the questionable decision to drop my Adv Autoshotgun and Adv 7.62 Assault Rifle on Io 1 and replace them both with plasma weapons. I've always wanted to try a plasma run, so here I go.

I was struggling with ammo throughout. I was never comfortable on ammo ever, and diligent usage of barrels and the launcher got me through Beyond, but when I saw the door to Limbo, I made the choice to head through there. Limbo is largely populated by Archreavers. Easier to kill than fat ravagers, so I figured I would expend less ammo going through there.

I barely got through and slogged my way through the last Beyond level and made it to the Summoner. First time I've fought him since the changes, and him teleporting away made things difficult, but I persevered and chased him down. Ended up in a complete melee slug with him, and he quickly capped my pain at 75%, giving me a whopping 3% hit chance on him.

Not good. I used my last CRI teleport thingy and ended up far enough away to use my last health kit and wait for the Summoner, giving me a good aim bonus for when he reached me. Two salvos later, he was dead.

And there I was. In the Precipice of Defeat, with a nearly empty inventory, an empty plasma shotgun, an empty launcher and a plasma rifle with one salvo left in it.

But I fucking did it.

Unfortunately, I seem to have missed 3 enemies, which is weird, since every level I left was blue. I guess the reavers in PoD count towards the kill percentage?

I don't think so. Spawns in Gateway and PoD are not counted. I had a few YAAM victories by killing the summoner and paying little attention to the summons.

So, if you like blasting stuff, next step is Angel of Carnage -- lot's of rockets, most likely there won't be shortage on Medium. Marine's Reload Dance is super cool when using rocket launcher.

I've finished AoC a couple of times. It's kinda fun, but late Beyond gets a bit iffy on the ammo sometimes. This run was absolutely carried by the overpowered Adv Launcher I have found.

Oh, hey!  I just felt like sharing that I have a very promising AoV game in progress where I found a "Haze" rocket launcher with enhanced damage and reload speed.  I have a feeling it's similarly going to carry me to the end.  :D

As for the missed enemies, I'm pretty sure the enemies spawned by the Summoner and from the Gateway don't count toward the total, as evidenced by the fact that if you look at the character screen, your kill ratio remains the same.  That being said, I had the same thing happen, where I was sure I had cleared every level, (and carefully searched each one) and still didn't get 100% kills.  I'm not completely ruling out the possibility that I made a boneheaded mistake somewhere, but I still slightly suspect it might be the result of a bug.
