Least favorite weapon manufacturer?

What is your least favorite weapon manufacturer? Mine would probably be Dahl even though I love the Hornet, Gwen's Head, and Lascaux.

Probably Jakobs. I know that they have the nice hidden critical damage, but I am pretty much all/most elemental weapons, so they usually get benched or discarded due to the lack of such properties for their normal options. I like the Revolvers and the Snipers OK, but the Shotguns and Assault Rifles I don't like at all. The small magazines that need constant reloading is just no good for me, despite the damage potential that they can offer. Outside of uniques and legendaries, definitely my least used/favorite.

I'm not a huge fan of Vladof because I almost never find elemental from them (not including the Infinity pistol).

I'm going with Dahl. It's not that their guns are bad, in fact, some of them are actually pretty good (like the Bearcat and Hornet). It's just that because they're better with burst-fire (which is done by aiming down the sights), they're not the best weapons to use in Fight For Your Life. They're accurate, but only when you're ADS, which is an impossibility in FFYL.

Dahl. Can't stand the burst fire. I still don't like how they changed the manufacturer specifics. (Why are Jakob guns not wooden anymore?) I hate how the weapons can Franken-spawn with different manufacturer parts. A Jakobs weapon with a Maliwan scope just doesn't feel right.

I know I'm going to get some hate for this, but have never been a fan of Torgue. I wasn't too keen on the constant leading of the enemy. Idk. Too many things.

I feel that my least favourite are Dahl and Bandit. Dahl because of the required scoping for greater accuracy that forces you to burst. And Bandit because of the usually longer reload times.

I despise Dahl weapons for the need to zoom for burst fire; which is sad for my trigger finger as I actually like burst fire weapons with a metaphorically burning passion.

The runner up is Hyperion for the need to waste half the clip in order to get a bead on a target that isn't as HULKINGLY GIGANTICOIDZILLATRON9000 as The Warrior. Jack made some bad business decisions in his time of office...

I actually considered Hyperion weapons the best (non-legendary/pearly) guns in BL1 for their Laser Accuracy and lack of a bulky gyro stabilizer thingamajig.

My least favorite would be the Bandit weapons. Unlike most here, I love Dahl weapons. Big fan of burst fire and their camo design.

I have to agree there. "Accuracy increases while shooting" is also an especially bad attribute for sniper rifles.

I'm not a huge fan of Bandit but I love the Slagga... A LOT. My least favorite is Dahl even though I love the Bearcat and the Hornet (all with the Bee).

Idk, I feel as thought most Tediore weapons I find are just lacking in areas similar guns aren't from other makers.

I would say Jakobs. Besides Maggie, and I don't like to use legendaries as examples but that's the only one I've used, I don't use them. Shotguns usually have too low of a magazine and assault rifles I prefer automatic. I don't use snipers :P
