If you have gold keys, you could always hit the chest at sanctuary. Guaranteed purples that will be scaled to your level.

dont discount leveled white/green weapons. at higher levels, they will often outperform lower level rare items due to the games scaling.

id say try everything in your power to take down wilhelm, and then he actually becomes a decent farm. he frequently drops blue and purple weapons upon killing him.

you can always do some side missions to level up once or twice. (anything without a blue item for a reward is totally fine to do without missing out on anything)

If you're stuck on Wilhelm, an easy way to get past him is to go see if you can get Madame Von Bartlebey to drop you a babymaker.. Its really easy to take down bosses if you just shoot one bullet out of the clip and toss it.

this works well. also, you are able to do the quest to spawn her without having to take a quest with a blue reward. there isnt a unique reward for the prep quest. apart from that, killing her is a decent way to get a level or 2

Also, if you don't mind finishing the quest to get the unique, that Teapot is a beast against Wilhelm. Make sure you take out the Surveyors before they get a shield going on him if you don't have a good shock weapon.

and honestly, the teapot is almost like a toned down version of the hornet. its still a good gun, but it isnt as good as the hornet in filling the same role at 50.

and a good corrosive gun will be quite helpful at that point in TVHM
