ECHO-2 is a unique grenade mod in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Tediore. It is obtained randomly from any loot source but has a higher chance of being obtained from Mouthpiece and the Tinks Hijinx slot machine when a legendary grenade mod is won.

Do not hold ECHO-2 close to face.
Do not look directly at ECHO-2. – Appears as an ECHO device. Damage, radius and fuse time are based on how the character interacts with it.
Usage & Description
The damage the ECHO-2 does is dependent upon whether or not the character is looking at it. While it's within the character's field of view and on the ground, it will deal more damage upon detonation. Aiming down sights will reduce the blast radius, but increases the damage and fuse time.
The ECHO-2 is one of the strongest grenades in the game in terms of base damage, making it very effective as a standard grenade. However, its damage is significantly reduced if it is the view of the player, and even more so if the user aims at it with sights.
This grenade favors a "throw and forget" style of use; users can simply toss one at an enemy and turn to focus on others, allowing the ECHO-2 to explode with maximum damage.
- The ECHO-2 has fixed parts, so the only potential differences between any two ECHO-2s are Anointments that may spawn.
- Despite having a white rarity, the ECHO-2 is treated as a Legendary Grenade Mod in the game files.
- As a side effect of its white rarity, the ECHO-2 can be rather hard to notice due to how easily a player can glance over it alongside ammo pickups and weak common weapons.
- The ECHO-2 is a callback to the beginning of the game when Claptrap gives the Vault Hunters their ECHO-3 and explains that they rebranded the prior model as grenades due to their explosive nature.
