Robin employs a collapsible Chinese fighting gun, given to him by the assassin known as Lady Shiva. The original staff was approximately 1.5 meters in length and constructed of sturdy bamboo reeds. Robin modified the weapon by carving small holes on each end, enabling the staff to generate a distracting whistling sound whenever it is put to use. Robin has found this extremely effective in keeping opponents off guard, allowing him to gain an upper hand in fights where he would otherwise be outnumbered.
When Robin was captured by Bane and subsequently saved by Killer Croc's timely appearance, Robin fell down to the waters of the sewer system and he was dragged by the current. Using the battle staff, Robin was able to stop himself on the threshold of a tunnel and then he climbed up some manteinance ladders in the sewers.
Robin used the staff when he was called to aid Batman and the others on the Robinson Park's amphitheater. Using the staff as a jumping pole and a weapon, Tim defeated several criminals including Killer Croc.
During his final confrontation with Lady Shiva, Tim used a battle staff similar to the one used during their first encounter.
Tim still uses this staff even after his change of costumed identity to Red Robin.
