Burn through your enemies by using Zenless Zone Zero’s Soldier 11, a very well-trained fighter who keeps her eyes on the prize. She deals physical and fire damage while using slash attacks, as part of the OBOLS Squad faction. Here, we go through who she is, what she can do, and how to build her.

We’ve got guides ready to go for plenty of the Zenless Zone Zero characters like Zenless Zone Zero’s Billy, Zenless Zone Zero’s Nicole, and Zenless Zone Zero’s Anby of the Cunning Hares, or Zenless Zone Zero’s Soukaku who investigates Hollows.

Here’s everything you need to know about Zenless Zone Zero’s Soldier 11.

What is the best Soldier 11 build?

Soldier 11 is an S-tier character available in the standard pool, that deals both fire and slash damage. She excels in dealing hefty fire damage to a small group of targets, along with physical damage on her normal attacks. A lot of her attacks get upgraded to deal further damage thanks to her Fire Suppression skill.

If you have another fire-using unit, we recommend pairing them as it increases their energy regeneration, and two pierce characters can improve Soldier 11’s fire damage output.

As for her W-Engine, her ‘signature’ is the Cannon Rotor, though can be hard to come by. We therefore recommend the [Reverb] Mark III as a cheaper alternative.
