[0.8.8|U|AoSh|Te|10|YASD] Shottyman Bronze
« on: February 08, 2020, 21:51 »

Had an AoSh game that was going very well, that ended in a stupid, avoidable way, because I was being too stingy and didn't want to use my last (large) med kit.  I was at 28% health, standing in a spot with no cover, with a CRI Soldier at a distance where I would do 50% damage to it.  I gambled that between the shotgun damage amp, and my advanced shotgun's damage increase, and the Frenzy effect of having just killed a guy, there would be a good chance of killing him in one shot, and even if I didn't, I'd be able to survive his return fire...  and I lost that gamble.  :(

The game was very nearly lost a couple times, first, because on level 2, I started surrounded by two turrets, two sergeants, a trio of Exalted Soldiers...  and then a couple of fiends joined in during the fight with them.  (I survived, barely, with 5hp, by using smoke screen, going around a corner and firing blindly into the smoke.

The second time I nearly lost was during Callisto Anomaly, where I used up all my medkits and was reduced to 1 hp...  actually, it was 5 hp, and I agonizingly watched it tick down to 1, due to acid damage.  :P  I thought for sure I was a goner there.

I had really high hopes for this one, especially since I had a good collection of supplies for dealing with CRI bots, including six EMP grenades, and a hefty pile of multitools for remote hacking.  It's pretty disappointing.  :(  I did get a Shottyman Bronze out of it, though.  :)

Nice! I have AoSh win on Hard, but I remember I was not able to progress far on UV. I would not think of clearing Calisto Anomaly with a shotgun, though. My strategy was to grab the free item in the Anomaly and move on.

I haven't tried AoSh since the updates. I've been having too much fun trying to break Gunslinger. Perhaps it's time to give it a run.

Exactly -- especially because shotguns have 1 tile longer range now.

impressive run regardless of yasd - though im curious why you go for the mines instead of military base. i've always found the rewards in the mines to be weak and something that should probably be tweaked due to how difficult the fight can be

Well, for one, Mines is easier on a Shotgun run due to unarmored demons (for the most part) and while the rewards are less varied, they are still often relatively useful.

Plus Anomaly has one free item. Often it is rubbish, but could be a jackpot. On my last shotgun run I picked up Amp +30% shotgun damage.

Oh, is that how it works?  From what you're saying, I get the impression that if I skip the Mines, I get the Military Barracks as an option later?  I've just been going into Callisto Mines in every game, because it's the first special level I saw, and I wanted to get the award for visiting all special levels.  I did see the Military Barracks spawn once, but I didn't realize it was because I did something different;  I thought it was just random and/or the result of the version change.

The Mines entrance spawns on Callisto L2, Valhalla Spaceport on L3 and the Barracks on L4.

Actually L2 and L3 spawn Callisto and Terminal exits in random order. Barracks is always L4

Yeah, I did notice that sometimes, I get Callisto Mines and sometimes, Valhalla Terminal.  That's why I just figured it was random and didn't give it another thought.  (Though the Mines seem to be more common)
