Borderlands 3 Zane Build: Sub-Zane [level 65, Mayhem 11] + SAVE FILE
Borderlands 3 Zane Build: Sub-Zane [level 65, Mayhem 11] + SAVE FILE

This Borderlands 3 Zane Build is focused on running and shooting enemies as fast as possible. You will not have to worry about any threats because you will be using your Barrier all the time, and by shooting MNTIS Shoulder Cannon constantly you will be able to keep it up at all times. You can find this Borderlands 3 Zane 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 only 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 mechanic this build relies on is combining the special ability of Smog SMG. It is the main weapon and when at full weapon shields it deals increased damage while aiming down sight. We are using 2 points into Our Man Flynt, which increases our damage while aiming down sight by 50%.

You can also skip this mechanic, just run and shoot with hip fire, and still melt enemies.

You get two choices of class mods, depending on your accuracy and experience with the game you might be able to use the one with +4 into Headman’s Hand, which increases your critical hit damage. You will need to kit critical spots on the enemies to make full use out of this mechanic. Zane gets a ton of critical bonuses with this build. I also included the Bitch SMG, which has the highest critical damage out of all the SMGs in the game.

The name of the build comes from combining the Submachine Guns, and a reference to Sub-Zero, a character from Mortal Combat Franchise.

Try it out for yourself! Just be careful not to run and slide too fast because it may end up with you falling off the map.
