Ranged

Ranged armour is generally crafted from tanned animal hides. Currently, cows, yaks, snakes, dragons, and dagannoths are the few creatures which drop hides upon death.

It provides moderate defence against melee attacks but high defence against magic attacks. Ranged armour usually has moderate attack bonuses for Ranged attacks.

Ranged armour is considerably lightweight compared to metal or stone melee armour. It's also cheaper by comparison and doesn't affect melee stats or the prayer bonus. For this, it is often worn in place of melee armour by 'hybrid' warriors who are fighting against mages.

Because some pieces of ranged armour require no defence level but provide large defence bonuses, ranged armour is preferred by pures.

Leather armour

Leather armour is good for beginning rangers. They are very cheap and can also be crafted. Leather armour could often be purchased at the general store in Al Kharid, as many crafters often sell leather items there, since they can get leather tanned in the city, however since the personalised stock update this is no longer possible.

Frog-leather armour

Snakeskin armour

Snakeskin armour is only available to members. Snakeskin armour can be made through the Crafting skill from snakeskin, which can be obtained by killing snakes that appear in the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup, Temple Trekking minigames or by killing level 35 snakes at Mos'le Harmless Island.

The whole snakeskin set is hardly worn by rangers due to the huge amount of snakeskin hides needed. However, the Snakeskin boots and bandana offer most rangers a much cheaper alternative to the highly priced Ranger boots and Robin Hood hat.

Dragonhide armour

Dragonhide armour is the most popular and the recommended armour players wear when ranging. Free players can only wield green dragonhide armour, and must complete the Dragon Slayer quest to wield the green dragonhide body. Blue, red, and black dragonhide is only available to members. Members can also craft dragonhide armour. Trimmed and Gold-trimmed versions on green and blue dragonhide armour have same stats as normal. Trimmed versions CANNOT be done with crafting.

Third age ranger armour

Third age ranger armour is high-level ranged armour. Members can obtain a set of third age ranger armour as a possible reward from level 3 treasure trails, however the armour is very rare. Third age ranger armour is reportedly made from white dragonhide.

Karil the Tainted

Members can obtain a set of ranged barrows equipment, Karil the Tainted's, as a reward from the Barrows minigame. When a player is ranging with the complete set, including Karil's crossbow, some ranged attacks have a chance of reducing the opponent's agility. This helps if your opponent tries to run away from you, as they can't run far with this special attack.

Armadyl armour

Main article: Armadyl armour

Armadyl armour is the best ranged armour available. It gives the highest range attack available, and the highest magic defence available also. Armadyl armour is not often seen, due to its price and rarity. It is dropped by Kree'arra and his three sergeants in the God Wars Dungeon.

Void Knight Armour

The ranger helm grants the player a +10% bonus towards accuracy and damage, if the player is wearing the rest of the Void Knight equipment.

(*). Need 42 Attack, Strength, Defence, Hitpoints, Ranged, and Magic with 22 Prayer to buy and wear them.

As some players find it more effective to wear full black dragonhide armour than a full set of Void Knight armour, due to the high ranged accuracy bonus, this item is not frequently bought. However, those who do buy it can see a higher max hit and a higher average hit. For example, with 75 Ranged one can hit a maximum hit of 18 with full black dragonhide using a crystal bow, while with Void Knight range the max hit is 21.

Morrigan's armour

Main article: Morrigan's Equipment

Members can obtain these armour pieces as rare drops by killing other players in PVP worlds. There are two versions of this equipment. Corrupted items require only 20 ranged and defence levels, but last only 15 minutes, while the normal items require 78 ranged and defence levels and lasts 1 hour. See Morrigan's Equipment for more info.

Other armour

Note

Although not "technically" ranged armour Barrow's Gloves can replace many vambraces as its range attack bonus is actually 1 higher than that of Black d'hide vambraces
