I'm currently trying to find a decent sniping/melee hybrid build. Figure I'll try and make us of the Hawk Eye's already high crit bonus.
With my first build I posted, the Melee/Gun Hybrid, the White Death TEARS through at least BUNKER in about 10 seconds, 2 clips. Use White Death with something like The Bee or HoT (Which is what I use, I like the AoE Nova), when your health is low, deception, switch to Rubi and throw Kunai or a grenade to recover health and let your shields recharge.
I haven't tried any other bosses as he respawns if you leave the area.

One thing I am curious about is Ambush. It states that you deal extra damage against a target who is attacking another player. Does this apply when they're attacking the decoy? I want to fully utilize Deception but I feel like a carbon copy of other players when I use Death Blossom. Initially I went down the Bloodshed tree, but I couldn't get the build right and I resort to Cunning. I haven't really looked back since, as the damage dealt to single targets is insane thanks to the kunai.
I use a cunning/b0re build 90% of the time. Full sniper build, with rising sh0t, only when farming Terra (pounding his eyes for criticals and fast stacks of rising sh0t, you can turn the light elegant lyuda in a .50 calliber monster, after a while)
I have some eccentricities in the build, like skip killer, putting the points in 0ptics and preci0n.
When using Legendary Hunter, i can put one point in killing bl0w and other in ir0n hand. So I can snipe, run'n'gun, but, if both fail and the enemy get close, I swap to rapier, giving him a surprise.
