With the new comp cape rework, the ranged cape perk will be reworked as well.

Here are 4 suggestions for the new perk.

Perk suggestion 1:

The attack range of shortbows are increased by 2 and 1 for longbows.

This means that the noxious longbow will have a attack range of 10 instead of 9.

And the zaryte bow (any shortbow) will have the attack range of 9.
<According to the wiki the seren godbow now has a attack range of 9, they fixed it>

Making shortbows less horrible to work with.

Perk Suggestion 2:

Snipe takes 0.6 seconds to fire instead of 1.8 seconds.
Giving a 188 weapon damage instead like dragon breath.

Perk Suggestion 3:
Allows movement while performing snipe.

(This will not devalue the nightmare gauntlets because they give an additional 25 percent hit chance when doing snipe.)

Perk Suggestion 4:
The snipe ability is no longer a channeled ability.
That would be canceled otherwise from just eating a piece of food.

Perk suggestion 5:
Gives a 25 percent on recovering broken arrows and bolts.
Works with enchanted bolts.(Sadly no enchanted arrows, Jagex lazy game design,)

Perk suggestion 6:
Rapid fire last 2 additional seconds, ( like how the strength cape perk works.)

I would prefer if those things could be some nice extra and not stuff you absolutely would have to use for maximum damage potential.

So perk 1 and 4 would fit - albeit 4 would focus on something distinct weapons are not intended for. Also would be crippling overspecialized in something most rangers won't use anyway.

Maybe a different suggestion: Increases the chance that ammo will not break upon hitting something.

Would work as both utility and money saver (especially think of blackstone arrows)

With the ava's device, which they will add to every cape. Not many arrows are lost.
| could go with 1k arrows forever really.
Also ranged lack bakriminal arrows.

Perk 4 suggestion updated,,,,,,,,

1. No love for dart, axe, and glaives?
2. Reducing the channel time to 1/3 of original for the strongest ranged basic sounds a bit op.

I'd prefer if the perk affected a different ability instead of snipe. How about increase piercing shot damage from 94% to 117.5% but no longer have increased damage to bound/stunned targets? Or give rapid fire an extra tick of damage?
