Really great fun! Way too many deaths, but finally I just decided to aim for and stick to a build and it just worked. A dual-weilding pistol gunslinger gave me the win. The run that previously got me the furthest was also a gunslinger, though with SMGs, but I had major ammo issues before I could gain the benefits of Bulletstorm L2. With pistols I was always flush with ammo. Fully spec'd out, the Summoner was actually a rather trivial fight.

I'll have to try more builds, but I kinda wonder about the balance of the game.

Here's my character:

Congrats on this. Getting one of the speedrun medals is something I'm nowhere close to.

Out of curiosity, why Ski L1 as your second-to-last trait?

Edit: Haha, I just realized that I'd misread the time units in the title. That said, it's been a few months, but I think that's still faster than how long it took for me to get my first win.
