The Best Borderlands 2 Builds: Zero The Assassin

So, you want to build a better Vault Hunter in Borderlands 2, eh? The first lesson you'll have to learn is to pick a focus, and stick to it. Crafting a deadly character takes focus, and although each character can be specced in many different ways, there are definitely certain "right" ways to do it. So put on your min/maxing shoes and come join us in a comprehensive list of the best ways to spec your Borderlands 2 characters.


Zero is perhaps the most fun of the new characters in Borderlands 2. An assassin, he can cloak himself to become all but invisible. This makes him a viable character for both melee and sniping playstyles.

If you want to sneak through the battlefield using stealthy melee attacks, build your character using the following skills:

  • Killing Blow
  • Iron Hand
  • Grim
  • Be Like Water
  • Followthrough
  • Backstab
  • Execute
  • Resurgance
  • Like The Wind
  • Many Must Fall

On the other hand, if you want to keep your distance and snipe enemies, use the following build:

  • Headshot
  • Optics
  • Precision
  • Killer
  • Velocity
  • Bore
  • One Shot One Kill
  • Kill Confirmed
  • At One With The Gun
  • Critical Ascension

But maybe you don't fancy sniping or close range melee attacks. Well, Zero can still be the class for you if you're willing to experiment some. Using the following build, you can manipulate the battlefield to confuse your enemies, giving your team the chance to execute the critical strike:

  • Fast Hands
  • Counter Strike
  • Fearless
  • Ambush
  • Death Mark
  • Unforseen
  • Rising Shot
  • Innervate
  • Two Fang
  • Death Blossom
