I was just going for only Berserker Platinum at first in this run and wasn't intending to kill everything. The first few attempts that made it past Phobos Base Entry without me hitting Q there didn't make it far once the Hell Knights came, however this attempt got me some very good luck with timely Berserk Packs and Supercharges being available during that awful dlevel 3-5 range. This early powerup luck allowed me to kill all those Hell Knights and Cacodemons on the way to The Chained Court, where maintaining a 100% kill rate is at its most difficult on AoB. I also found a Ballistic Armor on dlevel 5, helping me even farther with killing everything without burning too many resources before I got Vampyre, and made Phobos Lab a lot less painful, as well as ensuring I got very good Cerberus Armor later. With this early luck, I maintained a 100% kill rate throughout the game, netting me Azrael's Scythe, which allowed me to exploit its altfire in The Vaults to get Scavenger Diamond. I forgot Gargulec Cross was a medal you got for finishing with a 100% killrate in AoB on UV and I was one medal short of Heroic Platinum, so seeing them in the mortem at the end was a nice surprise, making me more thankful for that early luck and saving me from having to do another AoB UV run later on for the Gargulec Cross.

Deimos wasn't so nice with the luck though. Deimos Lab had a... Firestorm and Sniper mod, completely useless while I was really hoping to make Antigrav Boots and get infinite durability on my Cerberus Ballistic Armor. Then after I lost my Red Armor early in Deimos and before I could make Cerberus Armor, one level started me in a big open room full of Mancubi with nowhere to run. After one big blast from them, I was left at 16% health, but luckily I had a Homing Phase and nothing was waiting for me at the stairs, so I was able to recover and then clear out the level. I also accidentally built my second pair of Tactical Boots at WK1, so I wasted my chance at getting +25% speed Tactical Boots.

In Hell things went easier. I managed to find an Energy Shield, and combined with some nearby Invulnerability, really helped with clearing Limbo, which I found to be a lot harder than Mortuary when you're stuck to purely melee. Limbo still got dicey though; after clearing the middle and right islands, my Energy Shield was nearly destroyed, and trying to progress through the left islands wasn't working. I kept getting hit into lava, getting harassed by Nightmare Cacos out of reach in lava, and getting perpetually blown away by Mancubi and Revenants. I ended up fleeing to one of the corners on the right islands and huddling there waiting for all the enemies to come to me, killing them each one at a time until I finally finished them all. The rest of the run was smooth sailing after that.
