RangedIs a skill in RuneScape Classic that is levelled by shooting ammo at monsters or other players. You get no Hits experience when ranging so the total ranged experience per kill comes from the monsters base experience plus the experience you would normally get in Hits. Using ranged, players can attack enemies from a distance but ranged cannot be used in combat.
Ranged, like magic, influences your combat level as you level it higher.
When attacking with a ranged weapon, a green projectile travels towards the target.
Like bows, the crossbow fires ammo but instead of arrows, it shoots bolts. There are only two crossbows in RuneScape Classic, only one of which can be purchased at the Varrock archery shop. The other is the Phoenix crossbow, which can only be received from the Shield of Arrav quest, through trade with other players, or from a general store, if someone has recently sold one there. There is no known stat difference between these crossbows.
Players cannot wield arrows. Having the arrows in the inventory while wielding a bow will allow the arrows to be fired. The higher levelled the arrows, the more damage they inflict against opponents.
All throwing knives except Black are made using the smithing skill. Throwing knives are one-handed and can also be used in melee combat. The higher levelled the knives, the more damage they inflict against opponents.
Spears can only be obtained from various monsters. Like throwing knives, they are one handed and can be used in both melee and ranged attacks. The higher levelled the spears, the more damage they inflict against opponents.
RuneScape Classic offers no equipment which raise the ranged bonus.
The Dwarf cannon is a powerful weapon, which fires cannonballs. You must complete the Dwarf Cannon quest to have access to it. Dwarf cannon cannot be used in player killing.
