Good at Defending and blocking off areas.
Has massive damage with Special.
Good support character.
Not very tanky.
Attack projectile pattern is hard to use and manage in combat.
Poor close combat ability .
Attack goes first as Bo’s exploding arrows, Eagle-eyed, are quite lethal if all arrows hit the target and great for spacing out against the enemy team.
Super is taken next so Bo has the ability to even one shot an El Primo with all bombs going off.
Health is taken last as Bo’s is a marksmen and should not be engaging in any close contact situations where other gigh damaging characters like Shelly can deal massive damage within seconds.
His attack projection is very odd as he shoots three arrow in a intervals that spread from left to right in a curved pattern unlike other characters that shoot in a linear fashion like Colt. Try to Move him from Right to left while attacking to have his shots line up. This can also be used to almost seemingly shoot around a corner while getting all hits off at an incoming enemy. As for a wide shot area, moving from the left to the right causes his shots to spread out farther apart allowing for a wider attack range. His attack takes some time to get used to so be sure to practice his attack and how it works to better your gameplay.
Bo’s Super Ability has to be one of the most dangerous in terms of damage and setup. Bo’s super ability allows him to throw three bombs on the floor in a triangle shape that then turn invisible (from the enemies eyes) as soon as it hits the floor. The bombs are then and only triggered when an enemy character or building goes within the trigger area which is just around the bomb. Use this ability to block off paths for the enemy or setting up for a kill when they get hit with your Special. It’s always best to put the bombs within the “hotspots” of the map, places that the enemy is most likely going to be walking through. (An example of a hotspot would be on top of the gem mine in Smash & Grab.) There is however one last usage to using Bo’s special, when running away from an enemy, like a raging El Primo, Bo’s can throw his Special in the running path of the enemy to either make then back off or cause serious damage to that your team can help finish off.
Use your attacks to cause the enemy team to back off the gem mine to prevent them from having priority of claiming the gems. Always put the Special ability in hotspots of the map like the entrance to the middle of the map from the enemies side or in bush/pillar they hide around in.
Try set up area’s with your special that Bo can use to finish off an unsuspecting enemy with and try to pick unfair fight (ex. a 1v2) as Bo’s does not have a high enough damage output compared to most other enemy characters in Showdown.
Attack: Always try to push back the enemy team with your attacks and help your team invade the enemy safe with the help of your special to deal damage on the vault. Bo can even put his special within the area that the enemy team spawn to prevent them from running back into combat. Defense: When on defence, try to harass the enemy with your attacks as much as possible and always have your special up in areas that the enemy team needs to go through in order to get to the vault.
