MNTIS Stab

Boosting Melee Damage for Stinger shield and Fish Slap

by AncientRune (Shoutout to Bra2ha)

This melee damage-focused build uses Zane’s plentiful access to Cooldown Rate skills in order to spam MNTIS cannon to activate the Stinger shield with the Break/Fill anoint.

NOTE: This build specs a point into Salvation despite melee not procing salvation. You’d have to use a non-melee gun or swap to Digiclone if you wish to benefit from Salvation.

MNTIS

  • Main augment needed is Proliferation to get 5 charges of MNTIS. For your second augment, you can use No Way Out to debuff but at the cost of a slightly longer cooldown. You can also use Colder Shoulder to freeze enemies for the bonus melee damage.

This build does not use a second Action Skill so that we can manually throw Fish Slap grenades. You’re more than welcome to swap this out with Barrier if you feel you’re lacking survivability.

Psycho Stabber with 150/90 anoint

  • Hold to apply a x2 melee multiplier to our Stinger shield or Fish Slap grenade.

Guardian Angel with 100% Melee ASE

  • Preferred to have bladed part for more damage
  • Optional for Stinger shield, less damage on the Stinger nova but more damage on Static Charge chains.
  • Synergizes well with Unleash the Dragon status effects combined with Zane’s movement speed to quickly achieve the max damage from GA.

Face-Puncher with 25% Melee Apply Terror

  • Allows us to use an ASS Break/Fill Stinger with Terror Damage and Fire Rate anoint on grenade if you wish to use Terror anoints at all.

Stinger with ASS Break/Fill anoint

  • Shield Break novas deal Melee Damage and will proc every Melee effect
  • Can use ASE/Melee generator terror when paired with Infiltrator instead of needing a melee terror facepuncher. 
    • Less novas but more consistent terror
    • Can be used with other class mods when focusing Fishslap for damage
  • Match elements to enemy health bars
    • Shock/Corrosive for Endgame Takedowns/Raids

Brawler Ward with ASE 100% Melee or ASE 50% CDR

  • Utilize with Fish Slap and Infiltrator for very good uptime on the shield’s 300% roid damage buff.

Frozen Heart/Snowshoe with ASS Break/Fill anoint

  • Utilize to instantly-freeze enemies for on-demand X3 melee bonus against frozen enemies from Fish Slap.

Revolter with ASS Break/Fill anoint

  • Gives 200% bonus shock to our Fish Slap grenades on top of insane amounts of fire rate

Ideal anoints

  • ASE 50% (preferably Radiation for the rad-explosions) or Terror Damage and Fire Rate.

Fish Slap (Cartel Drop)

  • Scales incredibly well and is viable as a non-Face-puncher ranged melee option.
  • Pangolin’s Bouncing trajectory allows for multiple hits in quick succession with proper aiming. (Aim at their feet)
  • Preferred to have Link parts for the best damage.

Idea passives

  • Melee Damage, Splash Damage (and Radius if using Stinger Shield). You can also use Action Skill CDR for more Stinger novas.

Spy, Prioritize points in Commitment

  • Offers the most consistent CDR available for spamming Stinger Novas via MNTIS.
  • Can utilize one point in OMF paired with Cryo-augment MNTIS to ADS and instantly freeze enemies for easy access to melee’s x3 damage bonus against frozen enemies.

Infiltrator, Prioritize points in Violent Momentum (for Facepuncher) or Like a Ghost

  • Can be paired with ASS break/fill anoint on Stinger shields to give two Stinger novas on MNTIS activation. Your shield must have any amount of capacity in order for the two novas to activate.
  • Synergizes well with Brawler Ward’s roid damage buff for using with the Fishslap.
  • Worse CDR due to the loss of Topped Off

Executor, Points don’t matter

  • Synergizes well with Unleash the Dragon’s status effect as the COM’s legendary effect will boost this damage even further.
  • Also boosts cryo damage.

Ideal Passive Rolls

  • Melee Damage (able to roll twice), Splash Damage, Elemental Damage, Action Skill CDR.
  • AoE Damage in the second or third slot also gives Splash Radius and is preferred for many setups.

Elemental-Stone Static Charge

  • Best for mobbing due to the chains providing AoE damage
  • Synergises well with Guardian Angel
  • Can use knife drain prefix for better survivability at the cost of less damage

Unleash The Dragon

  • Amazing bossing artifact for bosses without too many immunity phases.
  • Synergizes well with 150/90 Anoint and Guardian Angel to increase the initial Melee Hit and the subsequent Status Effect damage.
  • Pair with Executor Class Mod to further increase the Status Effect Damage
