"Everyman Diamond" : Win Angel of Humanity on Ultra-Violence with "Conqueror"


Normally, with plain red armor +P, Archvile deals you 9 damage, revenants/mancubi can deal you 14 damage,
Baron of hell can also harm you maximally 14 damage, commandos/arachnotrons can deal you 20~30 damage,
which can easily instantly kill you.

Can you think you can avoid all of them in the whole game?
No, no, absolutely you can't.

So, the key of this run is, to decrease damage with armors with decent resistance, so I choose Technician.
Even with plenty of decent armors, I've tried this run immensely many times.


First, do not give P-mod on your red armor first. Up to Hell 2, it's easy without it.

Now, clear Hell's Arena, and you must get here ballistic vest.
If you got phaseshift armor here, then you should Q-Y and restart.
There is no way to breakthrough this run with phaseshift armor.

After having Whizkid 2, make your first red armor to "Ballistic red armor", and add +P mod to it.
(now you have ballistic red armor [6/6] (100%) (P))

Next choice of traits is SoB2, HR2, DM.

In early parts, cacodemon caves are most frustrating obstacle. If you face that map, run.
(with its tougher cousin, arachnotron cave in later parts - you cannot survive there without homing phase device).


Chained court is hard, as barons can instantly kill you if you are unlucky enough.
Lure one baron at the time into the narrow corridor between lava pools.
If Arena Master is coming, run to the berserk pack, pick it, and melee it with chainsaw.
If Arena Master revives many chaingunners near you, use rocket launchers.


Phobos lab is easier than Military Base if you apply the "closing door" strategy.
You must do it with A-modded ballistic vest (+15% speed) and HR2 to outrun nightmare demons without "running" status.

Now, after clearing Phobos Lab/Military Base, make "cerberus ballistic vest",
which will give you resistance with 50% melee, 50% sharpnel, 50% bullet, 70% fire, 50% plasma, 70% acid.
It is the only way to gain acid resistance from armor, which will protect you from bruisers.
Save envirosuit pack.

In Phobos Anomaly, pick the red armor that you will face secondly in the game,
and assemble into "fireproof red armor", which will give you 55% fire resistance (but don't forget that it has -30% melee resistance)
After you get power mod pack, go for the armor. Next, clear the ambush as you did it always.

For bruiser brothers, wear cerberus ballistic vest and use envirosuit pack.
Then you'll gain additional +25% acid resistance (now you have 95% acid resistance, acid burst will always deal 1 damage)
And kill them.

Now, make "cereberus boots" ASAP.
You can make "environmental protective/plasteel boots"  as alternatives, (which will make you suffer only 1 damage from lava/acid)
but decreasing suffering to 1 damage is not enough.


Clear Deimos Lab or Hell's Armory. Use cerberus ballistic vest for cacodemons/arachnotrons/barons/commandos/shamblers,
use fireproof red armor for revenants.

You will get 1~2 rare mods afterwards;
If you get onyx mod pack, use it to your cerberus ballistic vest. (If you don't get it, use P-mod instead)
If you get nano pack, use it to make "nanomachic plasma rifle". In UV difficulty, you will greatly suffer from lack of ammo.
If you get only firestorm/sniper packs, you are get f**ked there. I think your doomguy get killed before long in that case.

The Wall is not hard, with cornering shots.
If Containment Area is generated, use "missile launcher" for the baron/archvile ambush (you'd better pick rocket box beforehand)

I was lucky to get super shotgun + 2 shell boxes before entering the Abyssal Plains in this run, so it was not so much problem.

If you don't have a nanomachic plasma rifle, save chaingun (I recommend you to assemble gatling gun) and 10mm ammo boxes.


You must have "cerberus boots" in Hall's of Carnage. Wear it, pick BFG, and run away from barons/hell knights
(Of course, do sidestep with Dodgemaster), wait until all of them drown to lava.


Cyberdemon is not a problem with Dodgemaster, but you'd better have "P-modded fireproof red armor",
which will protect you from getting instantly killed by single rocket blast.


Before entering Unholy Cathedral, you MUST have Finnese 2 + T-modded chainsaw.
(T-modded piercing chainsaw is 100 times better if you can make it,
but if you're not lucky enough to face that many modpacks, just T-modded chainsaw is okay)
You must have at least one medpack.

In Unholy Cathedral, wear ballistic red armor and kill all of lost souls and lure all of demons into lava.
You must wear off cerberus boots to outrun demons/Angel of Death to do "hit-and-run" tactics,
so be careful not to step into lava pools. At least, P-modded ballistic red armor will protect you from getting instantly killed by AoD.

Wall is easy with fireproof red armor(P). But don't forget that using Arena Master's Staff first will cause you fatigue.
Stack ammos for BFG.


In Mortuary/Limbo, you have to use BFG wisely. Don't waste BFG cells, this is not N!, it is UV, so you cannot stack ammo that much.
Use BFG only for archviles. If Limbo is generated, it is much easy. Clear right side first, pick nuclear BFG,
and just use only the nuclear BFG to clear left side
(with your cerberus boots, run into lava to wait charging of nuclear BFG, and shot, and run, repeat)


You would use a lot of ammo in the lava pits, so if your ammo is not sufficient, don't completely wipe out  Hell 5/6.
You should use any kind of weapons (like that weak chaingun) that you can get your hands on,
since in UV, the main obstacle is lack of ammo in later parts.

On lava pits, use ballistic red armor for pain elementals, and fireproof red amor for revenants/mancubi/lava elemental.

Now kill the spider with cerberus ballistic vest. Give it nuclear BFG shots or use lava elemental and bombard your rockets.

Wow!

I difference between you and TwoDev is that you actually tell us how you did it.

This is way beyond my ability so all I can say is: Epic!
