Topic. Or are they forced to become melee to withstand a chance?

I'll say this, a pure sniper build is really difficult. I think a good blend involving the cunning tree can get you by if you're very against going melee.

I made a pure sniper zero. Melee is pretty hard on uvhm for bosses

Cunning/B0re build still has no issues for me in UVHM. Neither does a full melee build.

I'm also finding level 51+ sniper rifles to be ridiculously under-powered compared to their counterparts. If I'm still finding sniper rifles at level 57 with LESS DAMAGE than some of the rifles I found at 40, I'm thinking there is a problem.

I have an Axton and ZeR0 going pretty much at the same time (level 34, 42 respectively), but wondering which one I want to take to the end first. I found that leveling ZeR0, I sort of suck at melee. I seem to hit Deception, then just hack and slash. But, I also heard someone say that melee is an absolute necessity to survive/kill UVHM. With Axton, I have had a much easier time progressing with him, but I've heard someone say he's just mediocre in UVHM, that his turrets don't survive long enough to make a difference.

Can you maybe link your B0re build?

which COM/relic do you use for the cunning B0re spec?
Some doors are best left closed, because once open, they're easy to walk through again and again.

I do awesome with my sniper/ kunai build. With sniping being my main damage, i havent run into any problems with it and ive done the whole campaign/raid bosses. I guess it just boils down to if you can aim well or not
