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 tips 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 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.

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