After being away for ages, I came back to DoomRL. Angel of Shotgunnery gave me way more trouble than such an easy challenge should.

I almost always went for Shottyhead (Fireangel is obviously useless for the challenge and Army of the Dead doesn't sit right with me with how it clashes with the Assemblies, I can expound if people really want to hear). I chickened out of many of the special levels but I took my chances with Deimos Lab in case I found something useful such as Assault Shotgun + Sniper Mod. No luck on either of those... But I got a Nano Mod! Because of that, I made a mental to make my next levels after Shottyhead Finesse and both Whizkids in case I found a Super Shotgun... In the last few levels I got exactly that! And I'd found a nuke so I was on track for a full win!

With Nano Super Shotgun in hand I could discard my Tactical Shotgun and shells to make room and go nuts with medkits and armor and such. I could skip the Mortuary because of my nuke but went into the Lava Pits. I didn't have an environmental suit and didn't have luck with the Phase Devices so I had to just bounce. :( ...But then the last level before Dis had an Invulnerability Globe near the exit! :)

Maybe it's a small thing but this made me really quite happy.

Holy moly...  Nano Super Shotgun combined with Shottyhead sounds incredible!  :o  Firing three Super Shotgun blasts per second, I'll bet nothing could stand in your way!  :D  Sounds like it must have been a fun game.  Congrats!  :)

Oh yeah, it was amazing! No need for any other weapons at that point. :)

The possibility of crazy stuff like that is part of why I prefer Shottyhead over Army of the Dead - you can't really EXPECT it to happen, but it's nice to have it on the table. The other, more down-to-earth reason is that is the availability of Assemblies to help shotguns get past armor.

Of course having so much of my playstyle in this challenge rest on finding Exotics and rare Mods isn't super healthy so I can see the benefit of the more conservative and reliable option MAD gives, but in this case I prefer to try and take the risk.
