Torgue is awful past close range, even with bullet speed perks. Just not worth the 2 shots (usually) to do about the same or around 1.5 damage. Shotguns are good since you have to be fairly close anyway but again still not worth the ammo, especially if you are good at hitting those crits.
Hyperion is awful just because of the overdramatic sway when first shooting.
Dahl's are actually pretty good with a high crit damage build, especially with faster fire rate mods/skills. Some of their guns actually feel like they shoot 3+ rounds at the same time in the same direction.
Vladof has amazing pistols and rifles.
Jakobs for the snipers or shotguns
Tediore for the SMGs
Bandit for shotguns and RLs (multi rockets per rocket cost).
In certain situations, I like burst fire snipers. And if need be, I can just cancel the zoom to stop the extra shots. Not too difficult, and I do it with all weapon types that burst fire when I need to. Also, can we just clear it up here that the brand is "Torgue", not "Torque"? It's very annoying when everyone is using incorrect names. Or are we all jus dat qhetto?
In BL1 I used to read it as Teodore until I looked at the letters properly.
With Hyperion, the stabilising varies. I've lucked out with an SMG and a pistol that centre very quickly. Another Hyperion pistol I picked up had a higher magazine size but was nearly empty by the time it stabilised. So the former for me is pretty sweet. And even though the fire rate is slow, a purple Hyperion sniper I found actually stabilises just by holding down the sight.. no wasted first shots. Perfect for catching dudes unaware.
