This build is listed as a pure tagging/farming build, but the main version (GS+Sw/Fo or Sw/Sw) is good enough to be a roaming build and/or event build as well even though the damage may seem low at first glance. Blink and Sw ambush skill mean high mobility and are useful in many personal story achievement runs where you want to avoid things, and GS means high range. Split surge generates might for every target hit, and if you are facing only one enemy, use mirror blade. Meaning this build has excellent might generation in solo play. Also, Mirage can press dodge when harvesting a node to avoid getting into combat if that node is guarded by monsters.

Extremely fast and great at tagging, no projectile delay thankfully. Also super fun to watch your purple lasers hitting nearly everything. Great survivability, so far my favourite class to OW with. Focus can help pull mobs, but if u're in a super fast zerg, I personally prefer sword/sword offhand for more dps on the tougher mobs.

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.
