Bullet Echo India is a 'desi' version of the original Bullet Echo with some India-themed additions for the local audience.
The twin stick shooter incorporates stealth and strategy elements for high octane two-minute matches.

Bullet Echo is a mobile game with tactical top-down gameplay, where you control heroes with unique abilities in short, fast-paced matches. The original game released in 2020 but we are now getting an India-exclusive version dubbed "Bullet Echo India" as a result of a collaboration between Bullet Echo maker Zeptolab and Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) maker KRAFTON. AFK Gaming got early access to the game from KRAFTON and here are our thoughts on the game after trying out the new PvP tactical top-down shooter.

What is Bullet Echo India?

"Bullet Echo" offers intense multiplayer battles where players compete in real-time against each other. The game's unique twist lies in its stealth mechanics, where players must navigate the environment cautiously to avoid detection by opponents. The top-down perspective adds a strategic element, allowing players to plan their movements and attacks carefully.
