I kept trying this challenge with attempts at various builds, but generally died of either attrition or getting surrounded and screwed over.

It's just that you start the challenge so weak and the extra items don't compensate nearly enough, that it's hard to survive at all.

This time I picked Blademaster (it takes off quickly and it's reliable enough getting what you need) and I managed to luck out of some tough situations and get a manufacturing station right before Asterius Habitat (Making a pair of katanas - the first one came out with Guarded 5 so I rolled the dice again and got a better one that stayed in slot 1 for the rest of the game, relegating the worse one to slot 2 until I replaced it). The simple combo of a nice katana and Bladedancer 3 seemed to turn things around enough to let me replenish supplies.

After I geared up further in Asterius Breach and got my Master, I really snowballed.

I picked Black Site since I had a pair of spare keycards, since I could skip the ammo station that meant I could otherwise clear it out!

Until I got the Demonic Sword, I kept a backup gun in slot 3, but that wasn't really helpful after a while.

I ended the final level prematurely due to melee-moving, whoops. I don't know if I actually had 100% kills before that though.
