As the title says, I manged to bum rush through this challenge on the first try!

I did have some close calls regarding my health mostly, and sometimes my ammo but I managed to scrape through regardless!

I was informed that Gun Kata was the natural choice between how your inventory will naturally be full of ammo and the sheer dodge saving you healing later on, it definitely seemed to work out that way.

I was mostly on my usual track with SoG 2 and Gunslinger 2, Hoarder, Hellrunner and GUn Kata 1 on time but the nice drops pushed me into early Hoarder and particular finding an early JAC SMG had me thinking about Scavenger so I held the point until Valhalla Command and finding a Deagle there settled the issue... Unfortunately for all the 9mm I turned into .44, I could still tell dual-wielding the Deagle and JAC full-time wouldn't be sustainable, thankfully I quickly found a 7.62 SMG and pairing one of those with the Deagle, keeping 7.62 and Scavenging the rest into .44 worked a treat. I kept holding onto the JAC regardless but it was mostly a 7.62 SMG in Slot 1 (I went through four: a baseline, then an AV2, then a Freezing AV3 and finally the Disruptive CRI I ended with) and a Deagle in Slot 2 (I replaced the first one when I found a Deadly one in CRI Armory).

Every time I came across a Health Station I chose to increase my max HP, due to a lack of Multitools to use it properly for other purposes. I think I ended with 120 max Health! I also had particular mod-priorities for everything according to the WK0 limits I had: Auto-calibrating most weapons to use up the spare terminal charge and if they still had a slot then Calibrated was the first choice. Headgear wanted Danger Monitor and if AV traits permitted Health Monitor, Armor wanted Swift mostly.

I got some nice gear, since Dig Zone was available I went there (was thinking Biolabs if it wasn't there) and since I already had Infiltration Armor, I built a Combat Helmet there that ended up with Sealed, which was welcome but i would still end up ditching it for the Blast Helmet seen below since that seemed like it would be more helpful.

CRI Labs was a tricky choice, I wasn't sure how well I would do there but since Black Site didn't show up and I had 3 Keycards I felt like I had to... The fact Gun Kata would really enjoy the CRI Armor tipped me other the edge. While I had some really gnarly health scares in the preceding levels of the branch, CRI Armory wasn't that bad and I got a good share of my endgame gear there so I feel confident in my choice actually!

Aside from that, I'm kinda surprised at the number of grenades I hoarded, I guess since MGK really doesn't want to stop moving and has such intense offensive force I didn't think to use them that often. Still don't really regret it per se, but something I'll keep in mind for higher difficulties would be to think of throwing my 'nades more if I've got them.
