Long Range: Misc


Final Fantasy

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Long Range is a type of attack classification. Long Range refers to Row, as normally characters in the back row deliver decreased damage. However, the Long Range ability lets a character inflict full damage regardless of their row, or an enemy's row. All Magic is long range.

Most games have weapons that are Long Range, usually Boomerangs, Bows, Whips, and Guns. However, different games have had other long-range weapons, and some have the Long Range ability as a separate power.
