Torgue making things that don’t explode doesn’t make sense. Tediore making inexpensive ladders does.
The level of detail in the game continues to impress. Atlas, Dahl, and Hyperion would be my main three I’d expect to see based on their roles in each game. Of the remaining manufacturers by BL2, when they specialize more, Tediore makes more sense than Maliwan, Jakobs, Torgue, or Bandit given how niche the first three are, and the latter isn’t really a manufacturer formally.
This made me think of other structures, like boats, and something random hit me. How long were humans on Pandora before mining started? They say Pandora was in winter and most of the creatures were hibernating before BL1. But there are boats and tankers that are derelict spread around. If Sal’s abuela was born there, that’s at least three generations. But in Hammerlock’s Hunt you have the Savages, which are made out to be native inhabitants (no women among them). They’ve been around long enough to have enough familiarity with the Wildlife to be worshipping Voracitous, and yeah, will we get a lore explanation for the Witchdoctors and Triple O???
