I've been trying to win Angel of Berserk for the last little while, alternating between all three character classes.  Of the three, I think Marine has the easiest time, thanks to the damage boost from Rip and Tear, which makes it a little confusing to me that the Scout got his abilities nerfed.  (Reduced energy from Energy Leech)  Still, I really wanted to see if I could play sneaky, sneaky style with a Ghost build.  This means wasting a level on Eagle Eye, but I think it would have been fun.  (I was so close to getting it!)

Unfortunately, I found the difficulty ramped up faster than my abilities.  When I was facing Cryoreavers and Ravagers in Europa, they were able to survive two critical hits each, and I didn't have energy to spare, so all my sneaky tactics weren't enough to prevent me from taking lots of damage and I depleted my resources pretty quickly.

Still, this run was notable for the fact that I was able to conquer Calsec Central, so that was pretty cool.  :)  And when I played the next level, and faced all the shut down bots, I was still able to leech energy off them, so that was also pretty cool.  :)

I did encounter what seemed to be a bug, though.  The Av3 Machete I got from Calsec Central had Disrupt 3, so naturally, I used it against mechanical enemies, (even though it took four hits against everything, because of the slash damage) and I discovered that if a Calsec Sentry starts chainfiring, it continues firing, even if it's disrupted.  At first, I thought maybe they just mindlessly fire in the same direction, like they're stuck with their finger on the trigger, but when I moved, the supposedly disrupted bot was still able to track me with its weapon as it continued firing.
