Best Weapons and Combos As of Now

What are some of the best SMG's and Shotties in the game right now?
It's been awhile since I've played, I know they nerfed the bee and all that, so what is the new awesome combination of weapons to use now?

The Bee nerf worked by dividing the amp damage by the listed number of projectiles, so anything that doesn't list it's actual number of projectiles or damage sources should still benefit greatly from The Bee. Here are a few that work well:

Sand Hawk - 8 projectiles
Unkempt Harold - 7 projectiles
Fibber (barrel 3) - 9 projectiles after ricochet
Lead Storm - 3 projectiles
Lyuda - 3 projectiles
Pitchfork - 5 projectiles
Torgue gyrojet weapons - 2 damage sources, projectile and explosion, Ravagers in particular are nice

As for good SMGs and shotguns, the same that were good before are still good now.

SMGs:
Good Touch
Bad Touch
Plasma Casters
Hellfire
Sand Hawk
Chulainn
Slagga
B****

Shotguns:
Ravager
Conference Call
Twister
Slow Hand
Striker
Quad
Triquetra
Interfacer

Probably a couple others I missed, Hydra would be good with Gaige and Close Enough.

Bee nerf wasn't even much of a nerf. It's still a pretty darned powerful effect. Now you'll just prioritize fire rate instead of pellet count.

Which is what I'd assume it was really meant for in the first place.

On a side note, Love Thumper and Rapier are awesome. I'm about to drop damage ranging from 400K upwards of 10M. (Obvious Melee Build required)
