The Bo is the long staff weapon used during the opposition of the Japanese separation with the Chinese. Although, actual weapon is usually made out of hard wood, instead of metal. Yet today, the staff is still commonly used in several Japanese Martial arts.
Prior to Update 11, it was used as an effective crowd control weapon due to its ability to stun enemies on normal attacks and ragdoll enemies on charge attacks. Update 11 erased all crowd control capability from the Bo.
Update 12 fixed this by introducing the knockdown effect to just the charge attacks.
