So I thought I'd try out the latest beta release candidate to test out the new "medusa" enemy, and I played at Ultraviolence to ensure that I'd survive long enough to encounter them...  though I still played Angel of New York Reload, because I didn't want it too easy.  :P

My build was based around trying to make the most of my inability to reload, so lots of hacking to help get mechanical enemies, (later getting Wizard) grenadier, and toxicologist.  (The late game involved lots of poisoning enemies with my free poison smoke screen)  :)  The neat thing about hacking enemies is that the hacked enemies still dropped weapons when they died, so any time I was able to bring an entourage of bots between levels, I was effectively carrying in an extra pile of weapons.  :)

Spoiler: Medusae (click to show/hide)

I went up against the Summoner with a railgun, a super nailgun, and an army of six sentries, all with overhealth.  I didn't even need to use the Golden Gun I started with.  I always brought it along just in case, but I actually managed to go the whole game without firing it once.  (I wonder if there should be an achievement for that)  :P

Amazing as always! I tried this build on AoCo, it was lots of fun, and is actually effective against Medusae (all my other recent attempts were ended by these guys). You got me another Platinum, thanks!
