Borderlands 3 Zane Build: Flying Army Zane [level 65, Mayhem 11] + SAVE FILE

This Borderlands 3 Zane Build is one of the most original ideas I have ever had regarding Zane builds. It is focused on using amazing Dark Army SMG and creating your own flying army that melts down everyone around. You can find this Borderlands 3 Zane Build Save File at the bottom of the article.

Important! All the items are perfect rolls. If you do not want to download the file, you can just gather inspiration for the build and try to replicate something similar in the game. The build contains gear from all the DLCs to Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 Zane Build Explanation

The main thing why this build works is the special effect of Dark Army. When you hold the weapon in hand, three flying copies of the gun are spawned above you. They will shoot enemies using the element of the weapon. That is why I included all elemental variants, to match enemies better.

If you shoot all the bullets from a single magazine of Dark Army SMG, then the drones will get boosted damage. By using Zane’s skill tree, we will also give the weapon to our Digi-Clone. Therefore, we will have 6 drones in total flying around us, getting an insane damage boost upon emptying your magazine.

The second part of the build is using the Messy Breakup shield. It will also spawn a drone upon shield breaking. You can spam a lot of these drones by using the anointment “On Action Skill Start, activate any effects that trigger on shield break or fill”. You can shoot your MNTIS Shoulder Cannon and it will activate the anointment spawning a lot of additional drones.

All of your drones from weapon and shield will get boosted damage by “While under 50% health, deal 150% bonus radiation damage” anointment. That is why we are using Deathless artifact. I also included Backburner for quicker Second Winds. You can choose grenades to fit the anointment against the enemy type you are fighting. Same with a shield with shock or corrosive variants, complimented by the artifact.
