Borderlands 3 Zane Character Guide: Which Skills Are Best To Unlock First?

So you're interested in playing as Zane in Borderlands 3? We got you covered with the best tips to make the most out of his skills.

Borderlands 3's Zane is an intriguing character for sure, with the unique ability to sacrifice his use of grenades to equip two action skills at once--a trait you probably want to take advantage of. So the question is, which two of his three trees should you invest in? In the video above, Jean-Luc Seipke and Aaron Sampson talk through the operative's most useful abilities.

Zane's Doubled Agent tree is tied to his most valuable action skill: Digi-Clone, which summons a holographic decoy that both aids in battle and provides a means for Zane to escape the conflict. Eventually, this skill can be upgraded to the point where it essentially does the same thing as a grenade, and with the Old-U perk, it can be used to self-revive Zane when he falls in battle.

Both Under Cover's Barrier and Hitman's SNTNL drone are less valuable than Digi-Clone, but both contain some excellent upgrades as well. In these trees, you'll want to unlock Nanites Or Some Shite, All-Rounder, Violent Speed, and Violent Momentum. With these skills, Zane will be able to survive longer and kill enemies a lot more quickly.

If bamboozling enemies with holograms and bombarding them with drone strikes doesn't sound like a good fit for you, consider looking at one of our other Borderlands 3 character guides, which are listed below.
