I've really enjoyed playing through UVHM with Sal, Axton, and Maya, but Zero just isn't doing it for me. I enjoyed both a sniper build and melee in TVHM, but it just isn't the same in UVHM. I'm looking for some advice from you Zero fans out there, how do you like to play Zero in UVHM? What build/gear do you use?
I prefer a Cunning tree with a sniper/bloodshed hybrid. Since he has no way of healing himself besides his skill to regen life by melee kills, i usually have either an evo shield, seraph relic, or his HP regen class mod. use Deception to get away from a mob or to finish off a Badass. Weapons are whatever i feel like with a mandatory RPG for a quick pick up.
Get a Rubi! I think Zero Benefits from it the most in UVHM. With it equipped, you can toss out your Kunai, retreat and completely refill your health while in deception. Also if you can get your hands on a good Roid Shield like the Hide of Terra, it'll make things way more fun.
This is the build I've been using lately to tear up UVHM:
