1. Build overview

Our Zane build is pretty much the fastest Build in Borderlands 3. It's optimized for maximum Movement Speed which at the same time increases your Damage, thanks to the Violent Momentum Passive. It's a very powerful and well-rounded build that utilizes a very fast-paced playstyle and allows the player to use any Weapons they want. It's fully viable in both close and long-range, and it's one of the most efficient Farming/Grinding Builds we have played so far. Zane also brings amazing Actions Skills to the battlefield, you can spawn an SNTNL and a Digi-Cole which can attract enemy fire, and randomly throw free Grenades for extra damage. Zane himself has a Passive chance to throw free Grenades whenever he fires.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  •  Extreme Movement Speed
  •  Amazing utility skills that make it a perfect Solo build
  •  Very high DPS
  •  Free Grenades for extra Damage and AoE
  •  High Life Leech
  •  Mediocre team utility
  •  Mediocre damage mitigation


3. Passives

Below you will find the recommended Passive for the Fastest Zane build. This build utilizes the Hitman and Doubled Agent Skill Trees since they offer the highest bonuses to Gun Damage and Movement Speed. The Under Cover Tree offers good defensive bonuses and extra team utility, however, we have decided to optimize this build for playing Solo, so you shouldn't bother with it at all. I have personally leveled up by spending Points in the Hitman Tree up to the Violent Violence Passive and then switched to Doubled Agent to get the extra Grenades from the Duct Tape Mod Passive. But the leveling part is rather easy, and you should be fine following any of the Trees first.

Hitman Tree
Zane Speed Hitman Tree

The Hitman Tree provides high Gun Damage and Movement Speed bonuses which are the core attributes in this build. 

Notable Passives:

  1. Violent Speed - grants you increased Movement Speed when you kill enemies;
  2. Violent Momentum - increases your Gun Damage based on your Movement Speed, making it a must-have for this build;
  3. Salvation - grants Zane high Life Leech bonus after killing an enemy, making it a must-have for playing Solo.

Doubled Agent Tree
Zane Speed Double Agent Tree

Doubled Agent grants us extra utility and damage based on free Grenades that will be passively thrown by Zane and his Clone. It's also required to get the Supersonic Man Passive from this Tree for the extra Movement Speed bonus

Notable Passives:

  1. Supersonic Man - increases Zane's Movement Speed significantly, making it a must-have in this build. 
The Fastest Zane Build Skill Bar

SNTNL Bad Dose Static Field Digi-Clone Dopplebanger Digital Distribution

  1. SNTNL - summons the SNTNL drone that flies around damaging enemies and buffing Zane;
  2. Bad Dose - causes SNTNL to periodically weaken enemies, and buff Zane by increasing his Fire Rate and Movement Speed;
  3. Static Field - drains nearby enemies' Shields and regenerates Zane's;
  4. Digi-Clone - summons a Digi-Clone which distracts and damages enemies. It can also occasionally throw free Grenades;
  5. Dopplebanger - allows Zane to detonate his Digi-Clone for high Area Damage around it. The longer the remaining duration, the higher the damage;
  6. Digital Distribution - causes Zane to share a portion of Health Damage to be shared with the Digi-Clone.


4. Weapon Tips

This build allows Zane to efficiently use any Weapon you want. It grants no Gun-specific bonuses, making it extremely well-rounded build for casual use and Solo Play. However, getting Legendary Items that increase your Movement Speed should be the ones to look out for. And you should try getting the Bashing Shockwave Infiltrator Zane's Mod, which grants the highest possible bonuses for this build. 

  1. Bashing Shockwave Infiltrator - is the best Zane's Legendary Mod for this build which increases the levels of Supersonic Man and Violent Momentum Passives. Both are core Passives that scale our damage here;
  2. Rough Rider - Legendary Shield which can increase your Movement Speed by 10% when your Shield is low, making it a great addition to this build. It's a random world drop, so just grind, grind, grind, and you may eventually find it.

Buying Borderlands 3 Weapons with real money is a hassle-free way to get all the items you need for your character.
