Zane, The Operative is one of the playable characters in Borderlands 3. Zane is the Assassin class of the game.  He is wealthy and has a lot of gadgets to his disposal. His Action skill includes a decoy device similar to Zero from Borderlands 2 to draw aggro from enemies. He also has an attack drone flying behind him.


The VFX for the decoy took months to create according to VFX designer Ash. For over a year he worked on and off on the effect. His response to the Developer trailer is that the trailer didn’t do his work justice since there was a film grain layered on top of it. I’m looking forward to seeing this effect in action.
