If you've been trying to figure out how to get Bullet Bill in Mario Kart Tour, this guide shows you how.

The first wave of challenges for the Mario Kart Tour Paris tour just arrived, including such feats as causing opponents to crash a total of 3 times using Bullet Bill. Not quite sure how to get Bullet Bill in Mario Kart Tour? It’s a little more difficult to pull than other items, especially if you are used to getting 1st Place in every track.

Luckily, this challenge doesn’t have to be done in a single match. Although, it’s certainly possible to do all at once if you stay in the back. 

Using Bullet Bill In Mario Kart Tour

Much like with the Mario Kart on console, each item has a different drop rate depending on your position in the race.

You’ll never get Bullet Bill while in 1st Place. For the highest chance of pulling Bullet Bill from a Mario Kart Tour item box, stay in either 7th Place or 8th Place

That’s harder than you’d think due to the game’s auto acceleration, lack of areas to fall off the track, and overall casual-friendly mechanics.

To stay in the back, hug the sides as often as possible without performing a mini turbo boost. Run into obstacles like pipes and goombas, and make sure to hit any bananas the other drivers drop.

Not willing to leave it so much to chance and want to speed up this process? Use any of these three gilders to increase your chances of pulling the item:

  • Bullet Bill Parachute
  • Waluigi Wing
  • Wario Wing

Unfortunately, like all the other gliders, those three are all totally randomized, so you’ll have to either pull them from the pipe or save up coins and buy one from the shop.

Note that you’ll also get bonus points for a higher score if you use the Bullet Bill Parachute in Yoshi Circuit R, Bowser’s Castle 1, or Rainbow Road R tracks.

If you have the favored drivers for those tracks, you maximize your chances of pulling Bullet Bill and getting the highest possible score.
