Thanks! Maybe I'll give it a try just for laughs, but it looks impossible. Has anyone *ever* got that Angelic?

Nice time... even for E, that's a damn fast game.

...now just crank the difficulty up four more levels and shave off a minute and a half and you'll have Angelic ;)

My fastest game ever! Wanted a break from Nightmare, and had never got this medal, so gave it a go. This was my 3rd try. Standard chainsaw stairdive, and spent most of it invulnerable.

Yay for a Sharpshooter win, and congratulations!

I may object a bit against stormbolters and GCB fired in full-auto mode. With SoG5, you cause a guaranteed knockback, which may in turn make you each of your bullets beyond the first. It's almost a non-issue with a storm bolter combat pistol, but full-auto GCB you can lose five bullets this way, and you have to reload after just three bursts. Spidey is immune to knockback, so you would not waste ammo against her, but the 2 seconds of reloading time make it much more effective to fire single shots. IMHO, if you feel safe as far as armor goes, Reloader may have been a better choice than Iron Man, but then again, Iron Man can make the late game more forgiving.

If you're lucky enough to find a combat pistol, I would recommend to assemble the White Death, as I call it - a P3B2 combat pistol. 230 DPS, sustained for two and a half seconds, just can't be equaled. It's enough to kill a Cybie in a single clip.

Oh, and your firing speed with SoG5 should always be 0.1s, and the equation you posted is correct.

As Sereg says, any win on N! is impressive; well done!  :)

And yeah, it looks like you were fairly close to getting UAC Diamond!  I wonder if it might help to change your build a little?  Did you find you got enough benefit from the starting Int 2 to make it worth your while?

i took int 2 mainly so i could avoid blocks of monsters later on. in the first couple levels plowing through the hordes with the shotgun is pretty effective, but this obviously lessens later on when the formers and imps become revenants and viles. TaN or another level of ironman might be more useful as i was frequently running really close to death without any healing items

So this run went pretty smooth. Having recently formatted my hard drive I started all over unlocking content and hunting achievements. That explains some of the useless assemblies on this pistol run. I had good fortune though, pickiing up a combat pistol in Deimos Lab along with a sniper mod that I slapped on it after modding it into a storm bolter. It sure packed a punch and made it trivial to keep the hell spawn at bay. Good thing, 'cause the very next level saw me spawn in a big pack of arachnotrons. It was the closest I came to perish this game, the second closest being Mt. Erebus that I hoped to clear using a phase device, a homing phase and one environment suit. I found out taht you can't progress in the level by phasing into the enclosed parts of the map like you can clear the vaults. So it didn't work out and I had to convince myself to flee the level missing out on YAAM. Got the GCB at lvl 20 and with SoG5 it was overkill. At the end I think my firing rate was 0.16 secs and I must have done 42+5*6 = 72 damage for each salvo (MSs and SoG5). Is that really how that equation pans out? If so, no wonder the Mastermind bit the dust so soon.

I missed out on the YAAM and stupidly destroyed an invulnerability globe just before dis. Oh well, I still checked off quite a lot compared to most my runs, as struggling with Angel completions at U-level is about where I'm at skill wise.

Nice one - after you beat it once on N! that's it - you know what works.

Also trying to play quickly suited me better on N! (perhaps counter intuitively) than easier difficulties as you can't camp so much.
