"Only the Honor Guard of Lasan may carry a bo-rifle!"
―Garazeb Orrelios, to ISB Agent Alexsandr Kallus — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

The bo-rifle was a type of weapon used exclusively by the Honor Guard of Lasan; it was considered a great insult if it was used by anyone else. It was a unique combination of the functions of an electrostaff and a blaster rifle. It consists of a staff that could be collapsed to a length roughly equivalent to a standard blaster rifle. When extended, the weapon's tip(s) are electrified up to 11,000 volts and tended to be either purple or yellow in color[5] and are the primary contact points of the weapon during combat. The number of tips on the weapon depended on the model (AB-75 and J-19 had two, the CJ-9 had one). The weapon is then used in melee combat as a quarterstaff. When retracted, the weapon's blaster function is used and functions as a blaster rifle.[1]

Following the devastation of Lasan, bo-rifles were rarely seen in the galaxy,[1] although some would later fall into the hands of both the Alliance to Restore the Republic as well as the Galactic Empire.[2]

Agent Kallus, a member of the Galactic Empire, acquired his bo-rifle via the Boosahn Keeraw: the warrior way of the Lasat species in which a Lasat gifted their weapon to their opponent after being defeated in combat.[6]
