Ranged affects how good the player is with ranged Combat. It determines what ranged armour and weapons the player can use. The Ranged skill also increases the maximum hit and accuracy rating of ranged weapons.

Players using Ranged will gain Combat Triangle bonuses against monsters that use Magic and penalties against monsters that use Melee.

Combat Styles

There are three Ranged combat styles: Accurate, Rapid, and Longranged.

When using the Rapid or Accurate styles, 0.4 Ranged experience is earned per point of damage dealt. When using the Longranged style, 0.2 Ranged experience and 0.2 Defence experience is earned per point of damage instead.

In addition to affecting what experience is earned, each Ranged combat style has a special bonus:

  • When using the Accurate style, the player's Ranged Accuracy Rating is slightly increased. Details can be found on the Combat page.
  • When using the Rapid style, the player attacks 0.4s faster. This is the recommended style for increasing experience per hour.
  • When using the Longrange style, the player's Defense rating is increased by an invisible +3.

Experience Boosts

Ranged experience earned can be increased by 4% by equipping the Gold Emerald Ring, which is additive with the 1% increase from Pyro and 5% from Firemaking Skillcape for an increase of 10%.
