I was farming with my friend and we got a level 48 White Death, Veruc and an Unkempt Harold as well as a level 49 Slagga, Hive, and a Nukem. Gearbox should really make these weapons drop at level 50 at all times.

lol yeah. I can't remember all the lvl 48/49 drops I've had. Hellfire, blackhole, hornet...I just remember those. The thing that REALLY annoys me is that once you get like a 48, it takes FOREVER to get a 50 to drop.
I have Dysarthria. It's a Speech problem. Your question is answered now.
Can confirm that on play through 2.5 I have had this issue too. Examples that come to mind are Logan's Gun, Bee Shield, and a Bonus Package (all dropping from enemies level 50-52) at level 48. It's hard enough to farm one orange, let alone with the seeming "-2 to +/- 0 enemy level" that occur for orange drops.
At least the female dog I got from BNK3R just now was level 50 with elemental and the blade accessory. Almost makes up for the level 8 skullmasher I got while eridium farming. Almost.
