[U|AoI|100%|YAVP] Eagerness Platinum with Gunrunner
« on: August 26, 2023, 06:47 »

Eagerness Platinum was the last Platinum badge I could get without playing Nightmare, so I went and finally got it. Also took the opportunity to try out Gunrunner, which I have never used before. The run went pretty smoothly without much bumps. Hell's Armory got a bit dicey when I was below 50% health before the Shambler was released and I didn't have Gunrunner yet, but through careful maneuvering between the buildings, I was able to kill it without getting hit. Then Armory had an Onyx mod, which I used to make the uncommon Lava Boots since I was blocked out of Whizkid and the Tower Shield sucks, allowing me to get the Armory's Supercharge. Those Lava boots would prove very clutch later, as Hell had a lot of annoying lava rivers that I was able to just ignore. Also found a Nano mod shortly after Armory, which had a Super Shotty as well, but too bad Gunrunner blocks Whizkid, so I just went for Power Red Armor instead of being able to make the rest of the game free. Spider's Lair was a bit concerning with no medits for backup, but it didn't get too dicey with some careful play. Mortuary I was iffy on with no skulls nor guaranteed medkits on me, but it actually was one of the easiest UV Mortuary runs I had yet, Gunrunner could handle it pretty damn well. And then since I had Lava Boots and Power Red Armor, Mt. Erebus was free (while I also found out that the Lava Element gives you a full heal, so that's nice to know). Unfortunately no Invuln spawned on the penultimate floor, so no full win, but it was funny just being able to run at the Mastermind and repeatedly flinching it with the BFG and Super Shotty, getting me a free damageless win on it.

I sorta regret not taking Brute after Gunrunner, as with the Shielded Armor, I could have easily done Cathedral if I did and so had the rare opportunity to get a UV AoI Conqueror. The later game though maybe could have gotten gnarly if I delayed Intuition and more Finesse + Hellrunner on top of losing 20 max HP to clear The Vaults with the Scythe, so perhaps it was for the best.

Overall Gunrunner was pretty fun when it works how you want it to, but having no control over the automatic firing when running could be annoying. That, alongside the severe Whizkid block, significant additional investment needed (Shottyman is practically necessary despite not being a prerequisite), and the limitation of only working when running, hinders it greatly, but it is usable. I could have just went with Shottyhead, which was available at the same time after I went for Shottyman before Gunrunner, but things would get boring if I keep picking Shottyhead all the time. I would still put Gunrunner above Gun Kata though among the Scout masteries, at least the investment it requires to get going isn't as absurd as what Gun Kata needs.

Also really hoping 0.9.9.8 lets Juggler work with any weapon swapping, it gets annoying have to exit out so much to modify my keybindings to use it with exotic/unique weapons. Anyway here is the mortem:
