Let's say you got crazy about doing an allegiance playthrough, with the following rules:

You can only ever equip items by that manufacturer. If you choose Torgue, you can only use Torgue items - this includes shield, grenade mod, class mod, the works.

I think a Vladof playthrough with Zer0 would be a ton of fun, and he's who I would choose. I like Vladof anyway, and they've got a nice selection of guns, grenade mods, class mods and shields.

What about you guys?

Zero and torque.

Swordsplosion shoots straight.
Doug has a smaller spread.
Flakker has more range.
Slower explosives become rather effective.

And flakkers are fun.

I went Vladof for the sham and storm front. I honestly can't think of a gun other than the rapier without looking but I'm sure they have a few good ones. Almost went bandit for the thumper but bandit guns are no fun.

Zer0 is always my first choice character.

Bandit Krieg.

Early game is hell because malay shields don't start showing up until you get to Sanctuary but other than that he has so many options. Nearly all of his class mods are Bandit made, 2 different types of grenades (MIRV and bouncing betties), and the mag sizes you can achieve with ranks in BFG is ludicrous.

Everything shield wise is Tedoiore until Sanctuary. Kind of a loss there

I'm putting more weight in class mods than other gear types, like which of my preferred mods could I still use in an allegiance PT.

In that regard, Bandit Krieg by a mile. All of his class mods are Bandit so I could go any route in terms of build.

Other manufacturers I'd consider are Maliwan (Maya or Zer0), Hyperion (Zer0 or Gaige), and Vladof (Gaige or Salvador).

And Tediore only makes 2 class mods, both for Gaige, the Jill of All Trades and Necromancer mods. And the JoAT mod would be stupid on a Tediore Gaige since it enhances assault rifles which, of course, Tediore does not make.

In all fairness, Jill of All Trades is stupid to begin with. Boost to AR mag size yet it can add ranks to Smaller, Lighter, Faster.

i have done both vladof (on zer0) and am currently doing a Dahl (on Axton) and theyre pretty fun.

vladof is pretty awesome TBH. dont love their shields, but everything else is fun to use and more than viable.

dahl is a bit tougher, but if you get some decent dahl gear, it isnt too bad
