Zane Flynt is a playable Operative class character in Borderlands 3.


Brother of the bandits Baron Flynt and Captain Flynt, Zane left them to join a black-ops unit and has since become one of the most capable operatives in the galaxy. Having taken every kind of mercenary and assassination job there is, Zane found it increasingly difficult to enjoy a moment's peace due to so many people wanting him dead. He traveled to Pandora to lay low for a while, where he was recruited into the Crimson Raiders to assist in their battles with the Children of the Vault.



Zanes' Action Skills are Digi-Clone, SNTNL, and Barrier.


Spawn a Digi-Clone of Zane. This clone stays in place, but distracts and fires at enemies. Pressing LB or RB while the Clone is active causes Zane and the Clone to swap places.

  • Duration: 15 seconds
  • Cooldown: 28 seconds


Send into battle an automated SNTNL drone that continually flies through the environment and attacks enemies with its Machine Guns. Pressing LB or RB while SNTNL is active causes it to attack the enemy under Zane's crosshairs if any.

  • Machine Gun Damage: 4
  • Duration: 24 seconds
  • Cooldown: 60 seconds


Drop a deployable Barrier that blocks incoming projectiles. Zane and his allies can shoot through the Barrier, dealing increased Gun Damage. Pressing LB or RB while Barrier is active picks up and holds the Barrier, but the size and bonuses are decreased.

  • Duration: 14 seconds
  • Cooldown: 24 seconds
  • Damage Amp: +25%
