Welcome to our Double Trouble build guide for Zane the Operative in Borderlands 3. By investing heavily in the Red and Blue trees and making use of specific weapon synergies, this build substantially increases Zane firepower and turns Digi-Clone into a force to be reckoned with. A very fun and capable build, capable of breezing through the most challenges at Mayhem 10.

In this guide, you will learn everything you need to know to gear yourself up and play this build at the highest level.


Double Trouble Zane build overview

Double Trouble Zane is a build centered around Digi-Clone with the aim to enable specific weapon synergies and substantially increase Zane firepower in the process. With multiple talents empowering the clone and gear choices that give it sustain, any battlefield very often turns into a 1-man (clone?) army show, allowing the player to focus on surviving and dispatching key targets while their clone deletes everything in sight.



  • Great sustain; one of the safest build to play
  • Quite mobile
  • Does not require much aim proficiency, despite using some sniper rifles
  • Allows for a more relaxed and laid-back approach, thanks to its safety and Clone doing most of the heavy-lifting


  • Digi-Clone is a force multiplier but good weapons are still needed.
  • Certain bosses cannot be attacked by the Clone as of current, butchering the build's effectiveness
