Introduction

The most common ranged weapons are bows and crossbows. Besides these, there are several other types of weaponry available to a ranger. Darts, knives, axes and even cannonballs can be employed by ranged fighters.

Every different piece of weaponry has its own advantages, some are cheap and readily available, others are less so but inflict large amounts of damage, such as the cannon. Ultimately, the way one chooses to train the Ranged skill comes down to individual tastes and styles, something that each person must come to learn for themselves.

Crossbows

ranging with crossbow1.jpg
A crossbow user in action

Though rangers are most often seen with bows - drawing back their strings to let an elegant arrow soar through the air in an arc before plunging into its target - some rangers prefer the raw power and efficiency of dwarven design: the crossbow.

Because of their compact size, and the force with which the crossbow hurls its projectiles, a new form of ammunition is necessary. The bolts that crossbows fire are invariably metal, occasionally tipped with the sharp edges of precious stones.

Crossbows can be constructed using a variety of skills, but those keen to shoot their prey with these powerful weapons can purchase crossbow parts from three salesdwarves located in Keldagrim, under White Wolf Mountain and in the Dwarven Mines.

Crossbows come in a wide variety of styles and strengths, and almost all of them can be made from scratch by someone with the requisite Fletching, Smithing, Cooking and Crafting levels.

Crossbows can be used with any level of ammunition, but the ammunition will only work at its maximum efficiency if used with weapons at, or above, the ammunition's level. Some weapons require specific crossbows, however, and some can even generate their own.

There are two main types of crossbow - the two handed heavy crossbow, and the smaller pistol crossbows and their off-hand variants.

Two Handed Crossbows

Please note that the damage and life bonus values will be divided by 10 (and rounded down) when using the Legacy combat system.

Bows

No matter how skilled a ranger may be, it is always a good idea to be suitably equipped - whether your choice is iron or rune, oak or yew.

Bows and arrows can be made using the Fletching Skill, or purchased from archery stores in Catherby, Rimmington or Varrock.

Archery shop Look for the following symbol on your minimap to locate archery stores.

As you improve your Ranged skill, you will be able to wield stronger bows. Stronger bows are more effective.

Bows can be used with any level of ammunition, but the ammunition will only work at its maximum efficiency if used with weapons at, or above, the ammunition's level. Some weapons require specific bows, however, and some can even generate their own.

Please note that many bows listed here can be made freely, if you have the required Fletching level.

Special Bows

Please note that the damage and life bonus values will be divided by 10 (and rounded down) when using the Legacy combat system.

Dwarf Multicannon

dwarf cannon1.jpg

The dwarf cannon member badge tiny.png is perhaps the most interesting Ranged weapon. It can provide a lot of experience in a very short period of time. It is particularly useful in multicombat areas as it is able to attack multiple targets.

To use the dwarf cannon, you have to complete the Dwarf Cannon. When you have completed the quest, you can buy a cannon from the dwarf engineer Nulodion, south of Ice Mountain.

Note: The cannon can only be used to kill NPCs, not players.

There are four main parts to the cannon, and a cannonball mould. You can either buy your cannonballs from other players or make them yourself.

cannontable.gif

Read the Smithing section of the Manual for more information on making cannonballs.

The cannon will hold thirty rounds of ammunition at a time. You will have to refill it with ammunition every once in a while, so remember to keep an eye on it.

The cannon deteriorates while firing, until eventually disappearing. When this happens, go back and speak to Nulodion, he will give you another one for free. You can only have one dwarf cannon assembled at a time. You will not be given another one if you simply put the cannon into your bank account and then talk to the engineer to get another.

To regain a piece of the cannon from Nulodion for free, the cannon piece must be set up when you lose it. For example, if the cannon is set up and then you die, you can claim a replacement cannon for free from Nulodion.

If however, you lose a cannon piece while it is in your inventory, either by dropping it or dying, Nulodion will charge you a fee for a replacement part or a whole new cannon.

If you fancy shooting other items out of your cannon - like squid, or maybe brains - you should be interested in the Oddball aura available through the Members Loyalty Programme.

Darts

Darts have a high attack speed and come in main-hand and off-hand varieties so you can dual-wield them with shields or other one-handed weapons.

Please note that the damage and life bonus values will be divided by 10 (and rounded down) when using the Legacy combat system.

Accepted ammunition guam tar.gif


The fuel for each swamp lizard can be made by mixing 15 lots of swamp tar with their favoured herb in a pestle and mortar. This will create 15 lots of herb tar that can then be used with the swamp lizard.

Once both the tar and swamp lizard have been wielded the attack style can be changed. Set your style to 'Scorch' and your Strength experience will rise. 'Flare', in turn, will raise your Ranged experience, while 'Blaze' will boost your Magic. This versatility makes the swamp lizard a weapon-of-choice for the rounded adventurer.

Other Ranged Weapons

These items are rewards from or were used in holiday events.

Please note that the damage and life bonus values will be divided by 10 (and rounded down) when using the Legacy combat system.
