S-Tier Open World Tag build. Used for the right circumstances (Lab, LS4 farming, Etc) it can be one of the most effective builds in the game. Its also insanely easy to play and has a ton of utility via Portals and Reflects. I normally don't vote on builds; I've made an exception in this case.

Turns out Infinite Horizon doesn't just multiply your clone damage, it also multiplies your loot.
