Requests For Features / Re: Badge Overhaul Brainstorm
« on: March 10, 2012, 01:58 »
I like the idea, but it'd be ultra awesome if we could combine the challenges that make sense. It would be fun to try to beat AoMr/AoD or any number of combinations that make sense.

Discussion / Re: Shotgun Build discussion.
« on: March 09, 2012, 15:25 »
I like shottyhead a lot. Sometimes you can have a hell baron or arachnotron in melee range out in the open, and with a tactical shotgun you can push them all the way out of your vision radius before they can shoot.

In my experience with shottyhead, a combat shotgun should be enough to get to the mastermind. But I hope you have a lot of shells if you want to use it then.

#5.. not a challenge game, but this time a focus on entering all the special levels. I entered all but lava pits (because I knew I wasn't prepared for it) and of those cleared all but the cathedral. It was quite a shock when I tried to blast those lost souls and couldn't. I had to retreat. I'm particularly proud of clearing the mortuary. For some reason, I had been stockpiling tons of plasma cells the whole game, so I just BFG'd everything in there. I also managed to use the acid spitter a few times. Pretty fun.

I at least have a better idea now of how to tackle the cathedral..

The run wasn't too notable, except I found an onyx armor pack and two nano packs. I just slapped the onyx on a red armor and it served me well. I also never found anything other than the chainsaw. *shrug* It worked well enough.

This one wasn't too bad until the end. My tactical armor got blown up by a bastard of a mancubus/vile combo (and I only found 2 agi mods all game). Bad luck caused me to burn all but one medipack by the time I reached the mastermind. What could I do? I grabbed my tactical shotgun, donned some red armor, and prepared to kiss my ass goodbye. That was without a doubt the most difficult fight I've ever had.

One wrong move, and I'd have been toast. In hindsight, it might have been easier if I had worn no armor, but I didn't dare risk that. Basically what I had to do is: shoot the thing when it was at the maximum possible distance to be shot at, and ONLY then. Then hightail it the hell behind the pillar, and mirror mastermind's moves for a long time until she gets bored and wanders off again. Rinse and repeat. It took about 175 shotgun shells to kill her. You can imagine how long that took.

Oh, and btw: if I hadn't had intuition 2, there is absolutely no way I would have been able to win. Not a chance. I'm in the camp of people who think that int 2 is broken, making the game far too easy. But against the mastermind, not only is it balanced, but I'd say you're still a little outclassed. Maybe MAD makes things a little more balanced, but I'm actually concerned about how one is expected to take out the mastermind conventionally using shotguns. It doesn't seem possible without a ton of movement speed bonus or int 2.

It might have been better if I hadn't done a shottyhead build. It's pretty weak for the bosses.

A few of my bad habits:

-waiting for enemies to get too close when I have a shotty
-using up all my power cells with a plasma rifle instead of saving some for bfg
-being too lazy to line up more than one enemy for my rapid-fire gun or dual pistols
-blowing up the backpack and missile launcher -_-

It helps that I found both Trigun and Anti-Freak Jackal early. Dual-wielding those puppies made everything but the boss fights a breeze.

I did a Gun Kata build and used tactical armor and tactical boots for almost the whole game. I can't tell you how awesome it is to outspeed lost souls while running. Good stuff. Dodgemaster took care of the cyberdemon, and intuition 2 combined with the fact that I slightly outsped the mastermind allowed me to snipe it from out of range. It just took a very, very long time; even with the awesome pistols. It only managed to fire one shot on me, but I dodged all four (ha!) so I got the mastermind brain medal too.

I would have gone for a 100%, but I came across a level with a nuke, and I wasn't sure what was going on with that. I assumed I didn't have much time to get to the next level, so I took the stairs as soon as I found them.

What an amazing gem of a game this is. I discovered it recently and I've had a lot of fun with it. I remember going from ITYTD to HNTR and thinking, "how is this even possible?" I died a lot to the lost souls just before Deimos or to the Cyberdemon or some special level.

This time I had a little better idea of what I should be doing. Some things that have really stepped up my play: putting mods on armor (I was not doing this at first because it seemed like a waste) and simply carrying backup armor. By the time I ended the game I had 5 red armors, a few bulk and one power modded. Near the end I wasn't sure about my ability to handle the harder special levels, so the spider lair was the last one I did.

And good thing, too, because I totally messed up my chaingun build. The nuclear plasma rifle came in very handy. I took a bunch of eagle eye, thinking that it wouldn't block ammochain. Lesson learned. Fortunately, trigger happy + SoB is quite powerful on its own. It's just a bit ammo-hungry, hence why the nuclear plasma rifle ended up being very nice. Near the end, I found a minigun, which was cool. I even ended up killing the mastermind with it.

This run was notable to me not only because it's my first HNTR win, but because it's my only run so far where I wasn't invincible or zerked for the boss fights. I ended up killing the cyberdemon only getting hit by one rocket.

As for the mastermind...

Man, she HURTS. I BFG'd her thrice before she got in melee range, and then I hellwave pack'd her. :) Then I phased out and started popping off minigun rounds into the distance and ended up killing her out of sight range. It was beautiful. :)

Next, I figure I'll go for a 100% HNTR win, or try one of the challenges.. or maybe try HMP. What do you guys think I should tackle next?
