Awhile back the forum regulars voted Torgue the best over all weapon and shield manufacture in the game.
"Torgue combines good damage, high fire rate and recoil reduction into one lethal weapon!" - Marcus Kincaid
"400 percent more awesome! Also, Torgue doesn't make their guns out of freakin' wood!" - Marcus Kincaid http://forumsarchive.xbox.com/6/34786288/ShowPost.aspx#34786288
The next time you go shopping for a new gun, ask yourself one question: Are you a man? If you answer in the affirmative, then you're ready for a Torgue. You see, we at Torgue make guns for real men. Tough guys. Bada$$es. The kind of guys your dad was
and you hope to be! Torgue doesn't *** around making lightweight toys and we sure as hell aren't concerned with selling you a stylish accessory like those guys in the hip-huggers over at Maliwan. No. We make them tough, and we make them heavy. It's up to you
to make 'em dead. Do it with a Torgue.
