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 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.

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.

|[[Shortbow (weapon)|Shortbows]]/[[Longbow (weapon)|Longbows]]
==Buildings==
+
|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]]).

This article is about the Ranged skill. For information on training Ranged, see Ranged training (F2P) (P2P).
"Archery" redirects here. For the archery competition minigame, see Ranging Guild.
Ranged

Ranged is one of the three Combat classes in Old School RuneScape. It involves using bows, crossbows, and thrown weapons to damage opponents from a distance, and Ranged armour can mostly be made from animal hides. Players who specialise in this skill are known as rangers or archers.

Rangers are capable of having the highest accuracy of any combat type, boasting a maximum of +234 to Ranged attack, beating both Magic with a maximum of +152, and melee with a maximum of +170 to 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 monster while fighting from safety. Keep in mind that some melee monsters have high Ranged Defence, so a high Ranged level may be needed. Crossbows are useful against monsters with high Defence, as they are very accurate.

EquipmentEdit

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.

WeaponsEdit

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.

Weapon Information
Throwing knives/Darts Darts have the highest attack speed in the game, but they do very little damage and are inaccurate. Knives are stronger than darts. Dragon darts are about as powerful as rune knives.
Throwing rings Throwing rings are as powerful as a magic shortbow with rune arrows.
Chinchompas Chinchompas deal very little damage, but they hit multiple targets, making them excellent for training. Because of this, they are extremely expensive.
Shortbows/Longbows These bows 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 attack which hits twice, and the magic longbow has a special attack which boosts accuracy.
Composite bows 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 composite bow has the same special attack as the magic longbow.
Crossbows Crossbows are very accurate, and 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 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 racks, 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 birds. The composite ogre bow has the same speed as a crossbow, and can use brutal arrows as well as ogre arrows. Rune brutal arrows have the same Ranged Strength bonus as dragon arrows.
Dark bow The dark bow is the slowest weapon in the game, but it fires two arrows at once. It can fire dragon arrows, and it has a devastating 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 weapon that uses darts and Zulrah's scales for 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 assignments (e.g. Lighthouse dagannoths).
