Title: [H|YAAM|YAFW] This took me way too long.
Post by: Napsterbater on August 10, 2012, 22:43
So, after a zillion tries, I finally got my HMP Sharpshooter strategy down. This was my first HMP victory and my first full win. EE always comes first, I don't use a pistol until I get Sharpshooter. I used a storm bolter in this one, but honestly I think a B2P3 modded pistol would have been better. Had two nukes and three invulnerability globes on the level before JC, so I was able to nuke the SM and get all the way to the stairs, but my invuln ran out as soon as I got on the next floor, so I had to fight him. He went down a lot easier than I thought he would. Found two onyx mods, threw the other one away cuz I really didn't feel like making lava boots. I got real lazy later on in the game.

Congrats!

Even though this is a pistol build, did you still use the "make a little tunnel, bait, and clean out with a small mountain of shotgun shells" trick for the Wall? I have no idea how I'd even begin to clear the Wall with pistols. Like at what point do you reliably switch over and start using pistols as your main weapon?

Because a Sharpshooter build doesn't allow Dualgunner, I don't switch to pistols until I have the master trait. The Wall is difficult, but doable, using mostly the rocket launcher and the shotgun. If I can lure a Knight/Baron into ideal corner shooting position, I'll switch to chaingun and chainfire it to death, but otherwise I'm either out in the open with the rocket launcher, or playing cat and mouse with shells. Basically I radar shoot out in the open, then retreat behind cover and wait for an enemy to show up, then pump it fulla lead.
