'''Ranged''' is one of the three [[Combat classes]] in ''[[Old School RuneScape]]''. It involves using [[bow]]s, [[crossbow]]s, and thrown [[weapons]] to damage opponents from a distance, and [[Armour/Ranged armour|Ranged armour]] can mostly be made from animal hides. Players who specialise in this [[Skills|skill]] are known as rangers or archers.
 
 
Rangers are capable of having the highest accuracy of any combat type, boasting a [[Armour/Highest bonuses#Ranged|maximum of +234 to Ranged attack]], beating both [[Magic]] with a maximum of +152, and [[melee]] with a maximum of +170 to [[Slash weapons|slash]]. For this reason, it is often used against monsters with very high [[Defence]].
 
 
The [[combat triangle]] dictates that Rangers are strong against mages but weak against Melee fighters.
 
 
The ability to attack from a distance means that a player can [[safespot]] a melee [[Monsters|monster]] while fighting from safety. Keep in mind that some melee monsters have high Ranged Defence, so a high Ranged level may be needed. [[Crossbow (weapon)|Crossbows]] are useful against monsters with high Defence, as they are very accurate.

==Equipment==
 
'''Stats'''
 
 
There are three ranged stats, two for attack (Ranged Attack and [[Ranged Strength]]) and one for defence (Ranged defence).
 
 
Ranged weapons provide + Ranged Attack for accuracy and + [[Ranged Strength]] for max hit and armour provides + Ranged defence
 
 
In the case of crossbows and bows, the bows provide the Ranged Attack and the ammo provides Ranged Strength, while in [[Darts]] and [[Knives]] (where the ammo is the weapon) both stats are provided by the weapon.
 
 
===Weapons===
 
The rapid [[combat]] stance gives the fastest attack speed of all three stances while having a lower maximum hit compared to the accurate or long range stances, which have a higher maximum hit. The accurate stance treats your ranged level as if it were 3 higher than it really is, the long range stance increases ranged by 1, while the rapid stance does not boost ranged at all. However, the accurate and long range stances have slower attack speeds. Also, the long range stance gives [[Defence]] [[experience]], and as the name suggests, has a longer reach.

!Information
 
|-
 
|[[Throwing knife|Throwing knives]]/[[Dart]]s
 
|Darts have the highest [[attack speed]] in the game, but they do very little damage and are inaccurate. Knives are stronger than darts. [[Dragon dart]]s are about as powerful as [[Rune knife|rune knives]].
 
|-
 
|[[Toktz-xil-ul|Throwing rings]]
 
|Throwing rings are as powerful as a [[magic shortbow]] with [[rune arrow]]s.
 
|-
 
|[[Chinchompa]]s
 
|Chinchompas deal very little damage, but they hit multiple targets, making them excellent for training. Because of this, they are extremely expensive.
 
|-
 
|[[Shortbow (weapon)|Shortbows]]/[[Longbow (weapon)|Longbows]]
 
|These [[bow]]s both fire the same [[arrows]], differing in speed and range, but not in damage or accuracy. Longbows could be used for additional range, but are slower than shortbows on rapid. The magic shortbow has a [[Special attacks|special attack]] which hits twice, and the [[magic longbow]] has a special attack which boosts accuracy.
 
|-
 
|[[Composite bow]]s
 
|These bows are similar to longbows, but have a faster attack speed and slightly higher accuracy. These bows can only be obtained from completing [[Treasure Trails]] or by trading with another player. The [[magic comp bow|magic composite bow]] has the same [[Special attacks|special attack]] as the [[magic longbow]].
 
|-
 
|[[Crossbow (weapon)|Crossbows]]
 
|Crossbows are very accurate, and [[Bolts|crossbow bolts]] deal significantly more damage than [[arrows]], making crossbows effective for training Ranged. Crossbows are slower than standard bows, but are also one-handed, so a [[shield]] or [[prayer book]] can be used for protection.
 
|-
 
|[[Dorgeshuun crossbow]]
 
|This is the only crossbow which can fire the cheap [[bone bolts]]. It is also faster than normal crossbows, and has a [[Special attacks|special attack]] which lowers the target's [[Defence]] level.
 
|-
 
|[[Karil's crossbow]]
 
|Despite being a crossbow, it is more like a shortbow, requiring two hands and having a fast [[attack speed]], along with longer range. Karil's crossbow will only work with [[bolt rack]]s, which break when fired, making it expensive to use. This weapon should only be used against the [[TzTok-Jad]] and players, as everything else can be done more cheaply.
 
|-
 
|[[Ogre bow]]/[[Comp ogre bow]]
 
|The ogre bow uses ogre arrows. It is extremely slow; its only real use is for hunting [[chompy bird]]s. The composite ogre bow has the same speed as a crossbow, and can use [[brutal arrows]] as well as ogre arrows. [[Rune brutal|Rune brutal arrows]] have the same Ranged Strength bonus as [[dragon arrow]]s.
 
|-
 
|[[Dark bow]]
 
|The dark bow is the slowest [[Weapons|weapon]] in the game, but it fires two [[arrows]] at once. It can fire [[dragon arrow]]s, and it has a devastating [[Special attacks|special attack]] which boosts damage by 30% if using arrows that are not dragon, or by 50% if using dragon arrows, with a minimum damage of 5 per non-dragon arrow and 8 per dragon arrow.
 
|-
 
|[[Toxic blowpipe]]
 
|The toxic blowpipe is a powerful ranged [[Weapons|weapon]] that uses [[dart]]s and [[Zulrah's scales]] for [[Weapons#Ammunition|ammunition]]. Against [[monsters]], it has the same speed as darts/knives, but against players, it has the same [[attack speed]] as shortbows. Additionally, the toxic blowpipe can inflict targets with [[venom]], which deals increasing damage over time.
 
|-
 
|[[Dwarf multicannon]]
 
|The dwarf multicannon is a supplementary weapon that is set up by the player and attacks enemies on its own. There is no Ranged level requirement to use it. It is fast and powerful (with a max hit of 30), yet expensive to use, and there are a limited number of areas where it can be set up for usage. For example, it cannot be used against bosses except the [[Corporeal Beast]]. Nonetheless, it's useful and great to have on board, especially on certain [[Slayer assignment]]s (e.g. [[Dagannoth (Lighthouse)|Lighthouse dagannoths]]).

==Enchanted crossbow bolts==
 
{{Main|Enchant Crossbow Bolt}}[[Bolts]] that are tipped with [[gems]] can be enchanted for a wide variety of passive effects, each of which has a small chance of activating when an enemy is damaged by the bolt.


