I have never gone to the black marker and not fought the shopkeepers.

There's almost certainly going to be a gun you can use lying around (and if not there'll be plenty of bombs to help you acquire one), and the old "shoot from off screen" strategy is really effective.  I know it's lame, but the black market is the point in the game where my character has a good shot of making it, and I start playing conservatively there.

You don't always have to rob the black market.

I once got a crystal skull before the black market.  I bought the Ankh *AND* a jetpack.

Yes, but what's the fun in not robbing the black market? This is the point.

Robbing the Black Market is easy.

Robbing it, killing everyone, and leaving with the Ankh... in less than 2:30... THAT'S hard.

That's the definition of Robbing the Black Market. Taking everything without dying and getting out in the alloted time.

Well, there's a difference between plunderin' the whole lot of 'em and taking an item or two. Tongue

I like to climb down the left side and fire buckshot into each row of shops before I alert any of them to my presence.  You can kill 5 of the 7(8 assuming there's one at the exit) shopkeepers without ever putting yourself in danger.  And you'll probably find at the very least a few ropes there if you're unable to climb back up with ladders or anything.

That may be one of the only times you'll find it by pure luck.

well, if you always bomb the exits and entrances in area 2 you've sortof got a chance of getting it; they have a higher chance of spawning there then anywhere else it appears...

You'll never know. Your sample size might be too small.

True, but still. I found the black market by doing that.

I found it 3 to 4 times inadvertently over the course of nearly 3000 CoG runs.
