So I've been playing since release and have farmed some items and just lucked out on others. I'm not HUGE into farming though and don't want to farm for things I'm just going to be let down by. So what's the ultimate Zero gear
I currently have the Skullsmasher and a Bee. And the + sniper dmg relic. What else might be good to get?
My go to guns are a White Death and Unkempt Harold. Both are great with bore. Favorite guns post bee patch. Side note: I don't use the bee, there isn't really a need to it. Just use singularity grenades and use the Harold or white death and have fun!
The Maggie is a good combo with the Skullmasher in my opinion. I like the classic sniper rifle and pistol get up, but since the post-patch-bee those 2 guns do less damage.

If you want to snipe at the medium or long ranges a skullmasher can't guarantee that all the shots land that critical, so you are better off with a either a purple rarity jakobs or a lyuda/white death which depends on if you are going for single shot damage or damage over time.
My personal load out is cobra, bee, one shot sniper class mod (its blue because I don't use the accuracy skill and blue class mods offer more skill points in two skills over purple.), and explosive relic (for whatever reason it results in a lot more damage than a sniper relic for the cobra)
Also note don't let additional critical damage be a deciding factor on a weapon card ALWAYS go for additional base damage, it always makes better crit shots.

Lvl 30 zer0 here, first playthrough. I've been using the Law + Order build (easy to find online, seems like it's popular), and it's been working great for me.
Leather Law – Jakobs gun which gives +100% melee dmg, dropped by the Sheriff of Lynchwood
Order Shield – Shield that returns all melee dmg as health, dropped in the standoff outside Scooter's (after you kill the BNK-3R or w/e it's called)
This works incredibly well on my zer0 for the time being, and I'll definitely be farming for the lvl 50 versions in pt. 2.5 for the melee fun.
my personal favourite is to use a lyuda, mine is fire and has 180 crit dmg. 2nd weapon is a Sand hawk cuz those things are deadly
For the closer encounters, I go with the Lady Fist you get from an endgame quest named something like TK Baha. Its a hyperion pistol with 400% crit boost, so its really great with the sniping tree filled out
