[0.8.8|U|Ma|AoMr|13|YAAM] Gunslinger almost too easy...
« on: February 05, 2020, 13:20 »

AoMr UV win, on a second attempt! This is in 0.8.8b with Frenzy bug fixed (Is it? I really forgot to pay attention).
Yes I agree with khiijol who posted a AoMr win earlier that if feels almost too easy.

I mentioned earlier that Gunslinger and Headshot are comparable. Now I am convinced that Gunslinger is stronger. Headshot has higher damage (because of using the best gun available) and less ammo hungry (a big deal for .44 which is the best conventional pistol for most of the game). But it has a shorter range, and a cooldown time. The last point is the biggest downside of Headshot relative to Gunslinger. With Gunslinger and fully modded .44 revolver+ plasma pistol, CRI bots and armored ravagers go down in one shot on crit. No cooldown means multiple enemies can die in a very short time.

By the end of the run I had an ADV .44 revolver and a plasma pistol, both with Auto-loaders. And CRI damage amp +30%.

Marine does not have Scavenger. So, to save precious .44, the third slot was filled with an ADV 9mm pistol that I used instead of .44 revolver when dealing with lower-tier enemies.

Summoner fight was the easiest I ever got. Because archreavers were guaranteed to die to one dual shot, and because of auto-loaders on both weapons, I was easily taking out reavers as they appear, and did substantial damage to Summoner as well. Summoner never had a chance to get close. I had two CRI phase devices on the ready but never used.

The Summoner against all odds.

very nice run - one of these days i'm going to stop taking the easy way out and take on the cri armory

scavenger as a trait sounds cool in theory, but i've always found the ammo conversion rates are a bit weak and often feels more efficient to balance your ammo based on what enemies are dropping on that level. it would be cool to have pistols that take 7.62 (or even rockets) but that probably wouldn't do much towards smoothing out the difficulty
