Ooh, Gunrunner build.  Interesting choice!  How did you find it?

By the way, you mentioned in another post that you lost your stats from the previous version.  It might be a bit late to mention it now, but you can copy stats over between versions by copying the player.wad file over.

Nice win!  :D  I just realized from your other post that you're going from your first N! win to trying to win N! ArchAoHu.  That's quite an ambitious leap; I hope you know what you're getting into!  :o

As for the run, the nice thing about Army of the Dead trait is it helps you save ammo, especially if you combine it with SoB, which makes it extra devastating, so that probably helped you save ammo a bit while using the Jackhammer.  That being said, it looks like it would have done you some good to hang around some sergeants and let them revive a few times to replenish your shells.  (Very impressive med pack collection, though)

And yeah, N! is a very different kind of game.  It makes UV feel relaxing in comparison.  :)

So I reinstalled DRL a couple of months back, and this was my first run through.

Nothing major to report. Malek's armor is awesome, even against high tier monsters.
I forgot to use my lava element
Gunrunner is really cool. Had never used it before. Would be even cooler with a nanomachic weapon I imagine.

I somehow got 27 badges/medals in this run. I would never presume for that to be any sort of record, lol, but I was thinking that you could have a new series of medals... The "Golddigger" series of medals

Golddigger Gold Medal: for 20 badges/medals in a single run
Golddigger Platinum Medal: for 30 badges/medals in a single run
Golddigger Diamond Medal: for 40 badges/medals in a single run


Anywhoo... to the mortem itself

Oh it is my bad, I guess I was too tired yesterday. Somehow I messed up the abyssal plains line with the wall-containment mortem message. :D
On level 12 he romped upon the Abyssal Plains.
He barely escaped the trap set for him.
Yeah, I know I should play more DoomRL. :D
The corpse management stuff was usually too tedious for me, I think thats why I sticked with UV. But doing that properly for 24 levels requires skill and patience, so that makes this effort worthy!

I have been playing this game for years, even way back when it was pure ascii. but until I started lurking on these forums, I never seriously considered doing nightmare runs. Its funny how you adapt to the difficulty of it, and now, after a couple of months of playing nightmare consistently, I have adapted to the stress of not having the luxury of corpses staying dead. It really is a beautiful way to play.

To answer your question, no I haven't cleared the wall/containment area on N!. but I will, as my next goal is to complete a standard N! game, so hopefully on one of the runs I will have a rocket launcher and a bunch of ammo to clear those corpses and blow up the wall/barriers.

Thanks for the encouragement. Really appreciated. :)

Congratz on that! A Nightmare victory is a huge achievement in my dictionary and you should be proud of yourself in every possible way! That Jackhammer is a very very lucky find with AoSh. :D
Have you cleared the wall/containment area too? Good job!

Been lurking here for a while now, thought it was time I posted something.

To wit:

First ever completed Nightmare run!

Not super amazing compared to the skills of some of you guys around here, but quite happy nonetheless, managing to snare the shottyman Diamond and Platinum badges.

P.S. I was lucky enough to find a Jackhammer on this run. And I gotta say, a Jackhammer with the Army of the Dead perk is a thing of devastating power. Gotta watch that ammo consumption though...

Cheers. :)

Oh! I didn't realise it was already a thing. Then again, some players might not know about it yet, and I hope this tip will be of some value if they accidentally stumble upon it. :3

Muahahaha! Fear my Inquisiting power! 0w0
I actually attempted another AoP run a while ago, with a similar build. Got blown to smithereens by a hell knight because hubris and haste. >_>
Thank you! ^^

For Mt. Erebus, you really only need one Envirosuit to cross the short patch of lava at the left end of the map.  After that, you can use the other envirosuits at the right end of the map.

Also, questions like this should probably go in the Quick Questions thread.
