Borderlands 3 Zane The Operative Complete Skill Tree Breakdown: Hitman, Undercover, Double Agent
Zane is Borderlands 3's deceptive trickster with a wealth of fancy gadgets at his disposal. He's one of the sequel's four Vault Hunters, and while he incorporates elements from Borderlands' Roland and Borderlands 2's Zer0, he definitely has a certain unique flavor to his play style. We had extensive hands on during a gameplay preview event that gave us a better idea of what to expect from this new addition.
Zane has a ton of different skills in his arsenal, which are spread across three unique skill trees: Double Agent, Hitman, and Undercover. Hitman gives him the SNTNL, an automated drone that hunts down targets. Most of the skills in this tree allow Zane to increase his movement speed and damage output, allowing him to use the drone in a supportive capacity. On the other hand, Undercover grants him Barrier, a force field that stops enemy bullets. The skills in this tree increase Zane's survivability, allowing him to regenerate health and use his active skills more often. Finally, "Double Agent" lets Zane summon a Digi-Clone, which is a life-like, stationary replica that distracts enemies. Zane can also switch places with said clone to get out of danger or flank an enemy. Although many of the skills in this tree are devoted to making the decoy stronger, there are plenty that also increase Zane's grenade damage.
