I’m trying to remove this old tub faucet. There is what looks to be a set screw, but it’s either been stripped or is super corroded. What are my options here? I can’t seem to fit an Allen key down there.

If you are removing this unit to replace with a new unit, then I would either:
drill out the setscrew - not much care needed as it’s being replaced. But if it was to be re-used then putting the drill in a jig to save the threads would help.
just use a grinder to cut the old unit up - protect the worktop and surrounding surfaces from the debris.
