This weapon is unique among other melee as it's held in both hand across the screen, rather than at one side.
The Jin Gu Bang performs adequately well with its fast swing (LMB) and doubled secondary attack (RMB) that consists of a heavy clobber followed by a spinning smash. It has quite a long range secondary attack (Similar to Dragon Blade), but the delay between each secondary attack is quite long.
