The MK1-Bo is the standard issue staff weapon for all Tenno.

The MK1-Bo is the MK1 variant of the Bo.png Bo and is the standard issue staff for new Tenno recruits. Its long reach makes it ideal for new players who want to keep enemies at arm's length.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 2,500.


This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.





During Awakening, the MK1-Bo is one of two melee weapons offered to the player, the other being the Skana.png Skana.

The weapon can also be purchased from the Market for Credits64.png 15,000.


  • The MK1-Bo was introduced as one of three starting Melee weapon options for new players, alongside the Skana.png Skana and the MK1-Furax.png MK1-Furax.
  • (棒:ぼう) is the Japanese word for stick/rod/staff. Used for various forms and styles of martial arts around the world the staff is a highly versatile weapon. Its composition is usually made of hard wood though its weight could vary from light to heavy, flexible to rigid, and from simple shaft to decorated ornaments. A staff is typically 6 feet long with other staves of various lengths possessing different names.
  • Despite the blue energy depicted in the Bo's portrait, the default energy color of the Bo is red.


  • Only the host is capable of ragdolling enemies with the Bo.
  • Executing SlashDash130xDark.png Slash Dash without holding the MK1-Bo will toggle the channeling effect permanently on your weapon. Sometimes the staff will just continue to shine brightly (while on your back) as if you were channeling it. A melee attack will remove the effect.
