Shottyman Gold Badge!  Woo!  :D  If the Steam achievement stats are to be believed, this is among the rarest achievements!  :)  (Tied with Blood Gold and Eagerness Gold at 0.3%)

In previous attempts, I played as Scout or Technician, so I could play with Juggler to get multiple shots at a time in quick succession...  but I guess it turned out that having one main weapon and sticking to it was more effective.  :P  The weapon that carried me for a vast majority of this game was an advanced shotgun that had enhanced damage, reloading speed, and barbed effect.  Toward the end, I was getting worryingly low on shells, so the barbed effect turned out to be quite helpful, because I could make them bleed and run away to let their hp tick down for a while, then repeat.  When I reached the Precipice of Defeat, I was out of cells for my plasma shotgun, and down to 80 shells.  I had lots of med kits, though!  :)

I probably would have done better at keeping my ammo up if I had found a single shotgun amp in the game.  I must have found about a dozen amps over the course of the game, and they were all pistol amps, rifle amps, or accuracy amps.  I kept an accuracy amp around on the off chance that it helps my grenades.  (I don't actually know if it helps with that)

Also, now that I know that they exist, I tried to see if I could get all the special levels I hadn't seen before.  I found the Military Barracks by skipping Callisto Mines and Valhalla Spaceport, Refueling base by skipping Conamara Chaos Biolabs and Europa Digzone, and Io Warehouse by skipping CRI labs and Black Site.  I had hoped there would be another extra level if I skipped Arena and Limbo, but apparently not...  and I think I missed out on Conqueror by skipping those two.  (Oops!)

In the end, I brought the Summoner down with my advanced auto-shotgun with cold effect and autoloader.  It did half as much damage per shot as the barbed shotgun, but it allowed me to stay ahead of the Summoner by slowing it down while I could reload on the move...  and by angling my shots to hit the Reavers at the same time, I was soon getting Frenzy bonuses, which helped kill the Summoner faster.  :)

incredible! eagerness gold isnt too bad, im surprised its that low completed with this one

this is probably the best level progression for shotgun build, although im wondering if europa dig zone/tyre would be slightly easier now that armoured ravagers have been toned down a bit

Yeah, I definitely noticed the reduced frequency of armoured ravagers.  (They've been toned down more than a bit!)
