Template:Infobox skill Ranged is one of the three combat classes in RuneScape and RuneScape 2007. It involves using bows, crossbows, and thrown weapons to take down opponents, and wearing armor based off of various monsters' hides. Players who specialize in this skill are known as rangers or archers.
The Combat Triangle dictates that Rangers are strong against Mages and weak against Melee fighters.
Ranged's ability to attack from a distance means that a player can safespot a Melee monster while fighting from safety. However, this is not very useful as Melee monsters have high Ranged defence.
