 4514 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 4219 of those were killed.
 25 of those were killed by something unknown.
 71 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 145 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 54 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 8 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 33 killed the bitch and survived.
 13 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Yeah, not much to say about this one. The last silver badge I needed was Brick Silver, so I ran HNTR AoB while trying to hunt for phase devices as much as possible until The Wall. I was invulnerable and loaded with medpacks on entry, so although my first phase device took me across the Wall, I actually let the barons and knights burn a hole back through, just in case my two other phases somehow failed to get me back. (After all, it was a Brick Silver attempt, so I could happily walk out of The Wall and die instantly for all I cared.)

I survived, without much difficulty because I had a lot of medpacks and all I had to deal with were 6 knights and 6 barons, so with my objective complete I just carried on the run down to Spidey for the win. Not really notable in terms of being a massive challenge (took me 3 attempts), moreso because it completes my Silver badge collection (and hey, a win is a win and a badge is a badge... I really should get out of the habit of not posting mortems because they're "not important enough" to go on the forums). All I can really say that's valuable is that you can absolutely let the enemies burn a hole back through if you've got the medpacks or powerups for it, and MVm seems like the ideal build if you're going to have a master because MBm isn't going to help much against high-health Wall enemies (and the wall is likely to be the major challenge of a Brick Silver dedicated attempt).

And yes, the name of my marine references the nickname I've been calling this badge by privately for a while... Onto finishing my gold collection, then!

Next!

Yeah, that did seem ridiculous for such a low-level badge... Well done on getting it! That seems like a fairly reasonable strategy.

The only reasonable alternative I could think of is if Sharpshooter + Energy Pistol Assembly + SoG could be strong enough to pierce walls.

If you play a WK2 build, you can always try for a firestorm pack in Armory/Deimos Lab on AoMr and blow the wall down with demolition ammo, but AoB phases seems like a pretty good method since you can get there fairly easily and just retry if you don't get the required luck. It's not really that hard, just has a chance of failing by bad luck really.

I was always missing a few silvers, and I'm certain this was one of them. Congratulations on finding a solution.

Maybe I should go find the computer I last played DRL on and relocate my player profile somewhere more permanent - then maybe I can clean up some of my missing lower tier badges like this one.

Nice one!  :)  I think Brick Silver is one of the most, if not the most, challenging Silver badges to get.  No matter how you do it, you have to count on some amount of luck.

I think doing it with AoMr is slightly less luck dependent, since you only need to find one power mod, since you start with a tech mod, and you get a guaranteed power mod as a reward in Hell's Arena, so there's your makings of the energy pistol for tunneling through the wall.  (And you get some guaranteed energy cells in Chained Court)

In AoB, you get a guaranteed homing phase device as a reward for Hell's Arena, which probably would have helped you here, but you're still at the mercy of the RNG for if your phase devices take you to the correct side of the wall.  (Or if they put you in a survivable position)  :P  But hey...  looks like you pulled it off anyway, so congrats!  :)

...and MVm seems like the ideal build if you're going to have a master because MBm isn't going to help much against high-health Wall enemies (and the wall is likely to be the major challenge of a Brick Silver dedicated attempt).

I don't know about that...  I think having Hellrunner/Dodgemaster would be a big help in dodging the Baron's acid balls, which would help you with tunneling through the wall without taking damage.  That's a benefit you wouldn't get with Vampyre, since it blocks HR.
