"Bo has survived in the Rumble Jungle for a long time. It's all the more impressive considering he's been using toys he got on sale from the Gift Shop."
Bo Portrait

Bo is an Epic Brawler who has moderate health, immense utility with his Super, and a potentially high but inconsistent damage output. He attacks by firing three long-ranged arrows that explode in a small radius at the end of their range. His Super places three traps that can be triggered to explode a moment later by being walked on by an enemy, damaging and knocking enemies back upon exploding. His first Gadget, Super Totem, places a totem that increases Bo's and his allies' Super charging rate while inside its area-of-effect. His second Gadget, Tripwire, manually detonates his traps. His first Star Power, Circling Eagle, increases his field of view into bushes. His second Star Power, Snare a Bear, causes his traps to stun enemies momentarily instead of knocking them back.

Attack: Eagle-Eyed

"Bo releases a trio of exploding arrows, tearing up enemies like an eagle's talons."

Bo shoots three explosive arrows at a long range that can deal moderately high damage to enemies within a 1-tile splash radius. They are fired with a small sweeping spread from left to right (clockwise). The attack takes 0.9 seconds to complete.

Super: Catch a Fox

"Bo hides explosive traps in the ground. When triggered by an enemy, the traps explode after a short delay, knocking back and damaging enemies."

Bo lobs an arrow over obstacles that lays three mines on the ground upon landing. The mines are momentarily shown, before becoming invisible to enemies until they are triggered, and the traps are still visible to teammates. They trigger when enemies travel on their radius and explode 1.15 seconds later, dealing damage, destroying nearby obstacles, and knocking back any enemies inside its 2 tile blast radius. When triggered, they will beep and flash before exploding.

Gadgets

Super Totem

"Bo places a totem that increases allies' Super charging rate by 50%. The totem slowly loses its health over time."
GD-Bo1

Bo drops a small totem pole that charge his and any allies' Supers 50% faster within its area-of-affect. The totem has 1000 health and a radius of 5.33 tiles, and it decays for 50 health per second until it is destroyed. The previous totem is immediately destroyed if Bo places another totem.

Tripwire

"Bo triggers all of his mines after 1.5 seconds. During the delay the mines are completely undetectable to opponents."
GD-Bo2

Bo's traps will automatically explode 1.5 seconds after this Gadget's activation. This detonation has the same effect as when triggered by enemies, and activates Bo's Snare a Bear Star Power; however, enemies can't see the mines before detonation and an enemy walking over the mines in the 1.5-second delay will not trigger them.

Star Powers

Circling Eagle

"Bo spots enemies hidden in bushes from 150% longer distance than normally."
SP-Bo1

This Star Power allows Bo and his team to see 5 tiles into bushes, instead of 2 tiles Brawlers normally get. This allows Bo and his allies to detect enemies in bushes before they can see him/them.

Snare a Bear

"Instead of a knockback, Bo's traps now stun the enemy for 2.0 seconds!"
SP-Bo2

Bo's traps now stun enemies for 2 seconds instead of knocking them back, rendering them vulnerable. The stun does not stack; instead, it starts over when another mine hits an enemy.

Mutation

This section describes content that has been replaced or removed from the game. This information is kept here for historical purposes.
"Bo can have unlimited mines on the battlefield, and he has an increased Super Charge."
Mutation

Bo's main attack and Super recharged his Super more and he could place a maximum of 270 mines on the field. The Tripwire Gadget would activate all of his existing mines.

Tips

Game Modes and Maps

  • If Bo manages to place his mines on the IKE turret in Siege or on the Heist safe, he can activate Tripwire as soon as he can to deal immediate high damage to the safe/IKE turret.
  • Bo's traps can knockback enemies, so if placed correctly, it can knock enemies into the poison gas in Showdown. With Bo's Snare a Bear, Bo's traps will instead stun, giving you ample time to quickly defeat opponents without any risk of dying, making this effective in Knockout, Lone Star, and Bounty. In Duo Showdown, Bo can be used with a high-damaging Brawler, such as Darryl or Shelly to finish off a stunned enemy.
  • Bo's fairly high health can be used to walk the Ball into the enemy goal in Brawl Ball. In addition, Bo's traps can be used to destroy enemy cover and goalposts. Clearing up certain maps could be beneficial due to Bo's relatively long range, especially if he has teammates with long-ranged abilities. Hence, Bo is a viable Brawler in Brawl Ball.

Recommended Build

  • Try to use Bo's Tripwire Gadget before the enemy steps onto it, since the 1.5 second delay allows the enemy to escape. Also, note that the 1.5 second delay takes longer than its normal 1.15 seconds.
  • When Bo's Super is used, the third trap is set slightly after the other two. Thus, activating Bo's Tripwire Gadget immediately after using his Super only explodes two traps. In Brawl Ball, this can be used to explode walls or obstacles in front of the enemies' goal effectively, which makes it much easier to score. This also leaves one trap hidden until an enemy steps on it, so you can use the last trap for other strategies such as bait for the Ball.
  • When an enemy tries to disarm your traps, use Bo's Tripwire Gadget to catch them off guard and deal instant damage. Coupled with Bo's second Star Power, Bo can passively force enemies to not disarm his mines. This allows him to control open areas simply by selecting this Gadget.
  • Bo's Circling Eagle is really useful on maps filled with bushes, with his doubled radius of vision in bushes. Some maps include Cavern Churn, Feast or Famine, Island Invasion, Snake Prairie, and Sapphire Plains. Since you have a sight advantage, avoid getting close to tanks or other high-damaging Brawlers. Place his traps to cover the lane with only one passageway while you can cover the other side with your increased sight. When played properly, Bo can quite easily dominate bushy maps. This is really useful in 3v3, for his increased sight in bushes is shared with teammates too.
  • Bo's Snare a Bear Star Power can come into great effect in several Special Events. If one is stunned, you and your teammates can deal massive damage to them temporarily without being targeted. This includes the Bosses in Super City Rampage, Robo Rumble and Boss Fight.

Strategies

  • Bo's traps can be lobbed over walls. This is great when you know there's a Brawler hiding in a bush opposite to you behind a wall. Throw it ahead of them, so they're forced to walk into it, as they cannot go through the wall unless they are airborne or have a destructive Super charged up. With the Tripwire Gadget, you can deal immediate damage to them.
  • Bo always shoots three arrows from left to right, so you can take advantage of this to control the spread of your arrows. If you want to concentrate fire in a small area, move left while firing, allowing more arrows to hit a single target. For an attack with more spread, move right. The space between each arrow will be increased, giving the attack a wider spread. However, the former strategy only works on stationary targets as Brawlers will most likely be moving and can thus dodge all three arrows.

Other

  • Bo's Super can be used to defend critical areas and choke points on the battlefield. Enemies heading in the area will take high damage when they step on the traps. It can be utilized to cover the Gem mine in Gem Grab to damage enemy Brawlers who are gathering Gems from it. It can also be used to cover key choke points in Showdown, zone(s) in Hot Zone and Bolt spawning areas in Siege, making Bo an ideal control Brawler.
