For a full list of items and their stats worn in the body slot, see this table.

This is a list of the armour that is generally worn by players who are using the Ranged skill. Ranged armour tends to have high Ranged attack bonuses and good Magic Defence bonuses. Ranged armour is usually made from animal hides, tanned dragonhide, or some other type of leather.

Set items[edit | edit source]

Leather[edit | edit source]

Leather armour is good for beginning rangers. They are very cheap and can also be crafted. It comes in three types:

Frog-leather armour[edit | edit source]

Frog-leather armour is only available to members. Frog-leather armour is made by the Dorgeshuun goblins. Players must have level 25 Ranged and level 25 Defence to wear this armour. This armour is bought from Reldak in Dorgesh-Kaan.

Snakeskin[edit | edit source]

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 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[edit | edit source]

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 wear the body. Blue, red, and black dragonhides are only available to members. Members can also craft dragonhide armour. Trimmed and gold-trimmed versions on green and blue dragonhide armour have the same stats as normal. Trimmed versions cannot be crafted. They can only be obtained through clue scrolls.

Green dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Blue dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Red dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Black dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Blessed dragonhide[edit | edit source]

There are six types of Blessed d'hide armour, each representing the six gods - Guthix (green), Saradomin (blue), Zamorak (red), Armadyl (white), Bandos (brown), and Ancient (purple). The armour has the same stats as those of black d'hide armour except for a +1 Prayer bonus on each piece.

Treasure Trails rewards[edit | edit source]

Obtained through only doing Medium, Hard, and Elite, Clue Scrolls. Besides the Ranger boots, these are unused among most players as there are better alternatives. However the Rangers' tunic and Robin hood hat are popular among 1 Defence pures as they provide the highest Ranged bonus without requiring a Defence level.

Spined armour[edit | edit source]

Spined armour is only available for members and is Fremennik armour for rangers. Players must complete The Fremennik Trials in order to equip the body, legs, and helm. The helm, body, and chaps provide a slight Ranged attack bonus. Spined armour cannot be bought from stores and instead has to be earned from drops by the Dagannoths under Waterbirth Island. Alternatively, the raw materials can be traded to Sigli the Huntsman, who will create the armour for the player.

Karil's set[edit | edit source]

Members can obtain a set of Ranged Barrows equipment, Karil the Tainted's set, 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 level. It requires 70 Ranged and Defence to wear.

Void Knight equipment[edit | edit source]

The Ranger helm grants the player a +10% bonus towards accuracy and a 10% increase in damage if the player is wearing the rest of the Void Knight equipment. It requires 42 Attack, Strength, Defence, Hitpoints, Ranged, and Magic along with 22 Prayer to buy (for 850 Pest Control points) and wear them.

Some players find it more effective to wear full black dragonhide armour than a full set of Void Knight armour, due to the Defence bonuses. However, those who do buy it can see a higher max hit and a higher average hit. Additionally, it classes as a hybrid set, and as such gives equal Magic, Ranged and Melee Defence, thus making it an alternative choice in minigames where hybridding is common.

Note that the armour is only range-based if you are wearing the Void ranger helm; if you are, your Ranged damage is increased by 10%.

Armadyl[edit | edit source]

Armadyl armour is high level Ranged armour, and it gives some of the best Defence available to rangers, and is dropped by Kree'arra and his three sergeants in the God Wars Dungeon.

3rd age[edit | edit source]

3rd age range equipment is high-level Ranged armour, and currently the second best non-degradable Ranged armour (just like its Melee and Magic counterparts). Members can obtain a set of 3rd age range armour as a very rare reward from level 3 Treasure Trails. 3rd age range armour is supposedly made from white dragonhide. It requires 65 Ranged and 45 Defence to wear.
