But seriously, I just played it again after being reminded of it by the Destiny beta and remembered why I stopped (and hated it) in the first place. I never seem to get any good loot - even when I get a blue or a purple weapon they do almost no damage whatsoever to enemies. Also, I find myself dying so often and losing tons of money, even on "Normal" missions.

Maybe I'm just bad at the game, but I found it so hard and dull I can't remember any parts where I actually enjoyed playing.

Don't just go for the damage that is displayed on the card.
I'd advice that it's more efficient to stick to weapon type/manufacturer you like or got used to.
Vladof or Jakobs pistols
Vladof or Bandit assault rifles
Jakobs or Hyperion shotguns

And use elements. Better said - just don't shoot with fire at enemies that use fire/have anything fiery in their name or at enemies with a yellow health bar.
Other than that you don't really need to rely on elements in your Normal playthrough.

If you die every so often try to have a launcher ready to get a second wind with. Preferably Bandit or Vladof.

Use you grenades wisely.
Transfusion grenades will heal you for a percentage of their damage.
MIRV grenades deal the most damage.
Try to get on with a low fuse time, don't switch to a new one because it has a 100 more damage but a fuse of 3+ seconds especially with Transfusions.

And most important - use your Action Skill!
What's you character?
Axton - go for the left skill tree first, make your turret better
Maya - the right tree, Ruin is her most useful skill
Sal - Inconceivable first (middle tree), than onto the left tree and use mainly pistols
Gaige - right tree and just shoot anywhere
Zero or Krieg are not recommend for beginners.

I play this game too much as well, which is cool because the Pre Sequel will be out soon and I can run that too.

If you get killed a lot, you're style of play is probably a little weak. I go online and I see people just running into areas where there are sooo many enemies, they're bound to die quickly.

Slag is vital in UVHM, always slag then kill your enemy. I'm positive a lot of people forget to slag in UVHM from my online plays. Don't always go for the fashion gun that you see everyone using, not every character works well with an infinity, etc.. pick weapons to suit your character.

Use your class mods wisely, really figure out a good build and what works best for you. I tweak my skill tree with my Siren a lot because when I'm online, I focus on healing and killing, but when I'm solo, I'm a ruthless killing machine.

This is true, I always seem to forget this while I'm in the middle of a battle and just try and do as much damage as I can with my sniper, while occasionally using slag. Most of the guns I'm using are Purple/blue, so you'd think that they would do a decent amount of damage.

I have one, but the enemies keep running away when I get downed so I can't hit them easily. Maybe this is one of those games where you're not meant to play on your own?

Actually, I didn't know that. I just used whichever one had the best stats, but I only used them as last resorts, like if I was running out of ammo.

I'm playing as Zero, so that's probably part of the reason why I'm doing so badly. Is it worth starting over and selecting a new character? I was thinking of going with either Maya or Axel.

Oh, and thanks for the advice!

I know this is a late response.

Quality really dose not matter unless its a legendary or pearlesent, level is what matters most, the higher the level the better stats.

Yeah borderlands was made to be played as a co-op game but its completely doable solo. As for dying a lot, thats part of the game, money really isent that hard to come by especially if you keep going through your guns/other stuff and sell off the things you dont use/dont need.

Yeah dont be afraid to use grenades like ammo you find so many of them in chests its a waste to not use them.

Its not really the character, its how you use them, are you speced right, using the right guns etc. All 4 are good if you play them right.
