This is a sniper only build I designed on request of this topic here:
I have made a sniper only Zane in the past back during the time when Guardian Ranks were broken. It did work in mayhem 4 but it wasn’t fun and felt more tedious then powerful. I mentioned in the topic I linked that I would like to take another stab at it since GR is fixed and we have this new strong class mod that opens opportunities for Zane to have a lot of diversity.
So the star of the show will be the Monocle (I would love to get some Zane anoints on Muckamuck and Headsplosion but I dont’ have them). For closer range and elemental needs I will make use of an Incendiary Lyuda and a Shock/Corrosive set of ‘Autoaime’ snipers from the new DLC.
This first video will explain the build in detail then I will do some Mayhem 4 Anvil mobbing with it. It will be followed up with shorter gameplay clips which will include killing Warden and a short SS M4 clip. The final clip is finishing the Slaughter Shaft on M4 where I discover a sweet aspect of the build I totally didn’t expect when I made it.
I love sniper builds and I am having a ton of fun playing this. I’m super excited that it turned out to be viable and I can’t wait to complete even harder content with it!

Wave 5 / Round 5 of MH4 Slaughter Shaft:
Screenshot after killing Kraken with Sniper only Zane in M4: It was suprisingly easy to get this far with no downs. Most used weapons were the Autoaimes while swapping the Lyuda and Monocle out with each other. Also I was running with -25% from critical hits and it didn’t slow me down.
