Zenless Zone Zero Soldier 11 Best Builds

Soldier 11 in Zenless Zone Zero is an S rank Agent who deals Fire anomaly and slash damage. She is able to deal heavy fire damage at a small AOE range, and her basic attacks can get enhanced by the use of Fire Suppression.

Below, you will find the best DPS builds for Soldier 11 as of the ZZZ Equalizing Test. Rather you are a F2P player or a spender, this guide is for you! *Note that these builds assume base talent level.


Overview

Available on the standard banner, Soldier 11, a straight to the point, highly skilled fighter apart of the OBOLS Squad, is a high attack agent who relies on her fire damage to wreak havoc to enemies that are around her immediate vicinity. She relies on her Fire Suppression mechanic, which involves pressing the basic attack button at the correct time, or after using her EX special or chain attack, in order to imbue her attacks with Fire in order to deal maximum damage. She also offers good team utility when there are at least 2 fire agents in the squad, as whenever burn is applied, the agent applying the burn gets 4 energy.

Soldier 11 should be built as a main DPS, as in order to maximize her damage output, you need her to stay on the field long enough to make use of her fire suppression status whenever it is activated, not to mention she has very high base attack, coming second to Nekomata, meaning she is built for high damage potential. Now then, comrade, let's go over the best W-Engines, Disc Drives, Stats, Skills, Bangboo, and Teams for Soldier 11!


W-Engines

S - Hellfire Gears

⭐ PEN Ratio

Passionate Construction (level 1 stats)

  • Fire DMG is increased by 25%
  • When using an EX Special Attack, Impact is increased by 15%, this can stack up to 3 times, lasting 6 seconds each. Stack durations are calculated separately.
  • While Solider 11 is not an impact unit, the fire damage boost is very valuable as most of Soldier 11's attacks, if you take advantage of fire suppression, deal fire damage, thus this gives her a big damage boost.
  • The impact boost will still help the rest of your team build up stun faster on the enemy.
  • PEN Ratio advanced stat means that Soldier 11 will penetrate more of the enemy defenses, thus dealing more damage.

S - Canon Rotor

⭐ Attribute Mastery

Oversized Barrel (level 1 stats)

  • Crit Rate is increased by 16%.
  • Attacks that deal a CRIT on an enemy will deal an additional 275% ATK as damage. This effect can only trigger once every 5 seconds.
  • Soldier 11 has the second highest base attack in the game thus far at 929, meaning the 275% ATK bonus will scale very nicely.
  • Attribute Mastery advanced stat will help Soldier 11 to apply the burn more, which will help not only deal higher damage, but also charge more energy with her core passive.

A - Starlight Engine

⭐ ATK%

Knight Plummel (level 1 stats)

  • Launching a Chain Attack increases ATK by 24% for 10s
  • With how high Soldier 11's attack is, when she comes off from a chain attack, this will give her a sizeable damage boost, and when Soldier 11 comes off a chain attack, she gains Fire Suppression, boosting her basic attack with fire damage.
  • ATK% advanced stat will further scale nicely with her already high base attack.

A - Electro-Lip Gloss

⭐ Attribute Mastery

Kiss of Death (level 1 stats)

  • Deal 40% more Attribute Anomaly Damage
  • 40% more burn damage could be very effective if you are to consistently apply the effect to enemies by making use of her Fire Suppression.
  • More Attribute Mastery = easier for Nekomata to apply assault, which with at least 2 physical agents in the squad, assault can give you a massive burst of damage.

Disc Drive + Stats

Option 1 - "Mission Critical"

4 Pieces Woodpecker Electro

2 Pieces Inferno Metal

Main stats: IV. CRIT Rate% or CRIT DMG | V. ATK% | VI. Anomaly Rate% or ATK%.

Sub stats in order of priority:

1.  CRIT Rate% or CRIT DMG | 2. ATK% | 3. Attribute Mastery | 4. ATK

This build is for if you want Soldier 11 to become a critical hit specialist. As her base attack is currently the second highest in the game, any ATK% or flat attack roll will help you to dish out more damage. You will want as high crit rate as you can afford in order to constantly trigger the Woodpecker Electro 4-piece set bonus, and as Soldier 11 attacks moderately fast, it shouldn't be too difficult to achieve.

For VI, you can go with either ATK% or Anomaly Rate%, if you're finding yourself itching for more burn triggers, go for Anomaly Rate%.


Option 2 - "Operation Firestorm"

4 Pieces Inferno Metal

2 Pieces Woodpecker Electro

Main stats: IV. CRIT Rate% or CRIT DMG | V. ATK% | VI. Anomaly Rate%

Sub stats in order of priority:

1.  CRIT Rate% or CRIT DMG | 2. ATK% | 3. Attribute Mastery | 4. ATK

This build is for if you want Soldier 11 to specialize in dealing maximum damage output to burnt enemies, by granting her a massive boost to her already high base attack when she is attacking a burnt enemy, plus the crit bonus from woodpecker. For this, you absolutely want to go with anomaly rate% on her VI piece, as well as get some good attribute mastery rolls on her substats for more burn proc and damage. With optimal team, burn will also grant Soldier 11 extra energy to increase her overall damage output even more.


Skill Priority

ALWAYS PRIORITIZE CORE SKILL FIRST!!!

  1. You want to prioritize Soldier 11's basic attack first, as that is where the bulk of her fire damage comes from upon activating Fire Suppression.
  2. You will be using Soldier 11's EX Special a lot, as not only does it deal good damage, but it also triggers Fire Suppression, making this a key skill.
  3. Soldier 11's core passive increases the damage of her dash attack, making this third priority as you will be using it a lot.
  4. A heavy hitting fire damage attack with small AOE, and also activates Fire Suppression. As a main DPS, the other skills are priority as you'll be using them the most and will be Soldier 11's main damage, but definitely do not ignore her ultimate!

Bangboo

S - Butler

Key Trait - Butler creates a heartfelt afternoon snack. The snack will generate Energy for the receiving Agent, and apply an ATK buff based on own stats.

While Butler will not grant anyone in the optimal team any bonus crit rate apart from the 14%, what's special about Butler for Soldier 11's case is the buff mechanic, where Butler will grant various buffs, and among those, is an energy gen buff. This goes hand in hand with Soldier 11's core passive when there are at least 2 fire agents that grant the team even more energy.


S - Amillion

Key Trait - Increases CRIT DMG of all Agents by 28%, and the CRIT DMG of Cunning Hares Agents by an extra 28%

Soldier 11 currently has no Bangboo that benefits Fire Damage or OBOLS squad, but Amillion in particular benefits her by not only increasing her crit damage by 28%, but it will boost Anby's crit damage by 46%, which is currently a member of her optimal team as a impact unit.


Optimal Team Comp

This team consisting of Soldier 11, Ben, and Anby will grant Soldier 11 both of her core passives, which with 2 fire agents, whenever either apply burn, they get 4 energy, and with 2 slash agents, Soldier 11's fire damage is increased, and further increased when attacking stunned enemies. Currently, there is no way get all of her passives unlocked with a mono fire team, as there is no second fire slash agent, but Anby in this case will act as the teams impact unity, while Ben is your support DPS.

As Ben and Anby are both A rarity units, it should not be too difficult for you to get a hold of them, so for now, this is the optimal team comp, guaranteeing Soldier 11 can take advantage of her full kit.


Overall Thoughts

Not only is Soldier 11 an excellent fire main DPS, but also a decent utility unit for other fire agents, as her abilities are efficient at not only applying burn, but granting extra energy upon applying that burn. She is easy to use, moderately mobile, has decent attack speed, and deals an abundance of fire damage. Overall, a great unit to act as a fire damage agent. As she is your best pick for fire DPS, if your favorite element is fire, I would recommend going for her if she gets featured on a banner.
