[1.3a|U|Sc|YAAM] Run 'n gun
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:07 »

For no particular reason, I decided to do a UV game with a Gunrunner build, and got conqueror.  Yay!  :D  (100% kills too!)  :)  I had serious doubts about my ability to win toward the end, since I was almost completely out of ammo, even with scavenger 3, but I just barely managed to pull it off.

I was very speedy!  Between HR 3, the Exosuit unique, and the metabolic boost from my amp, I was moving at 0.5 seconds per move, (0.3 seconds while dashing) which went well with my chaingun with barbed 3, and actually turned out to be crucial for saving ammo at the end, since I could hit enemies with a few rounds, and then move fast enough to keep away from them while they bled to death.  In some cases, I even just danced back and forth in front of them, while they had a lot of difficulty hitting me, due to my dodge chance.  (Although I seriously wonder how to hit chances work in this, since they were sometimes still able to hit me, despite, in some cases, supposedly having -290% accuracy from bleeding stacks)

Another thing that was a big help was that super shotgun with rush 10, (damage bonus after move) which synergized nicely with the build, which is based on constantly moving.  I was pretty pleased to be able to deliver the coup de grace to Harbinger with my last shot from that gun.  :)

I was disappointed to find that the sustain mod didn't seem to work with the rail rifle.  (Or didn't work consistently?)  I think there were some shots that returned ammo as expected, but mostly not, and I'm not sure why that is.  If the mod had worked properly, a lot of my ammo worries would have been alleviated, particularly in Dante Inferno, which was a huge ammo drain, with very little return.

At one point, in the interest of saving ammo, I picked up a katana from the ground to whack a couple of reavers, and I noticed that Gunrunner's reduced attack time applied to melee weapons too, so now, I really want to do a melee-focused Gunrunner build game.  (Bladerunner, anyone?)  :D
