What weapons do you find great on Wilhelm?

So, I’ve been wondering what weapons people have been using that may not end up in top gear. I’ve been experimenting with a few options over the last few days and found some gems.

Gwen’s Other Head-In cryo, this hits just as hard as the Fridgia (no hard numbers, but that’s what it feels like), but even even the non-elemental version was great at ripping apart shield and health. As expected, critical hits take out pretty big chunks of health.

Striker- I don’t know why, but this gun just works really well for me.

So, what hidden gems have you guys found to wreck face on our favortie half-robot mercenary?

Also, as an aside, has anyone tried Zarpedon’s Cyber Eagle? I’d be really interested to know how that worked if you did.

EDIT: Thanks for the responses thus far, but I think most people know by now that lasers are great with Wilhelm, so I just want to see what else besides laers people are using.

A Tediore Cryo Splitter. I love that dang thing! It seems to have an excellent freeze chance with 6 shots, and it hits like bricks if your Laser Focused!

any cold weapon will do just don’t forget to pick up cold war skill and chronicler of elpis

Also, Maliwan Blasters are smexy.

…nothing that isn’t just as awesome in any other character’s hands, but as I basically play him for the sole purpose of punching frozen enemies with Power Fist, I use the Frigidia a lot (Wolf can take care of enemies that don’t want to get punched).

Aside from Laser weaponry and guns with high cryo chance, Wilhelm is pretty fine with any other gun.

I like a good sniper, works well with laser guided wolf.
A cryo mining laser is also pretty good at freezing stuff if that’s your thing, and it’s got way better range than a splitter.

Anyone know any pistols worth keeping any eye out for?

A good pistol I’ve found is the T4s-R (taser) from the Holodome. Maybe that’s because I found a ‘Redundant’ (two shots for one) shock one! Also the Maggie is always a great pistol, no matter who – they’re like mini-snipers.

I’m quite happy Maggie gets to shine in TPS. Loved it in BL2 but it just couldn’t keep up in the nutty high level end game.

The Maggie keeps popping up. I’m going to have to try one soon!

Cyber Eagle is very good. With my mauler com, two scoops has been a good shotgun, the howitzer, i still like my double pounder. I have a number of builds going on.

Pistol wise cryo anarchist, the other gwens head, and my purple tmp.

I’ve been partial to Dahl ARs with Vladof barrels as my main weapon.
When ADS they unleash at least 3 bursts of 3 rounds every trigger pull, more if you match stock (and grip? not sure).
I can’t match the damage output with any other AR, and have yet to find an SMG or Blaster…although I did find a slightly underleveled Anarchist that almost beat the AR on Damage.
I used to play Sal in BL2, so I’m plenty familiar with the awesomeness of Vladof pistols - I’ll be all over it if I find a better one.

Any decent quad-barreled Shotgun (Torgue Ravagers & Jacobs Quads are TITS) + Extendo-punch for close-range mobs, a Maliwan Shock Railgun for long-range shield stripping and a Corrosive/Fire Beam depending on the area.

With this kind of loadout, I figure once I spec into cold war, the rest of TVHM should be a breeze (and I might not have to worry about using Cryo weapons at all for UVHM either?).

Willhelm is a beast.
