What do you think about E-Tech Weapons?

Be detailed, tell me your pros and cons in your opinion. What type, manufacturer, and element. Why are they good, or bad? What do they compare too more legend arise, purples, or other? Are they better or worse than Eridian weapons in the first one.

Pretty awesome, especially the launchers. My Maliwan PBFG is pretty damn awesome. Way better than most Eridian weapons from the first game, sans maybe the Thunderstorm.

Plasma Casters are some of the best dps guns in the game. The Topneaa is amazing.

Some other ones are good to okay, and a few others are bad.

Plasma casters are (imo of course) the best guns in the game.

Best manufacturer? Element? Also why are these superior to the other E-Tech weapon classes?

Ignoring legendary e-techs...

They're cool, but not always worth it. Specifically, I find the following to be unsatisfactory:

Dahl Basters
Bandit Plasma Casters
All darts and Spikers
All snipers
Splatguns, other than the slow hand and bandit splatguns.

I hate how a lot of them have pointless ammo wasting gimmicks, I'm looking at you Dahl blasters and your three-way spread, but the one's that don't send your bullets flying everywhere are great. I'm currently trying to farm a Vladof blaster from the warrior, but no luck so far.

I hate spikers/darts though. I have no name needs her criticals.

You're the stranger, ain'tcha? Are you looking for a nice, clean place to stay?
Madam, I had a nice clean place to stay... and I left it, to come here.

Huh. Didn't know you were a woman.

Anyway, do you have the pirate dlc? Farming the treasure room should leave you swimming in e-techs.

I really like the Vladof Ferocious Blasters, personally. Pulled a shock and corrosive out of the gold chest and they've been getting a lot of use
