The ranging cape is a Cape of Accomplishment awarded to players who have achieved 99 Ranged. The skillcape and its respective hood can be bought from Aaron the Armour salesman in the Ranging Guild for 99,000 coins.

A player performing the ranging cape emote.

Like all skill capes, the Ranging cape gives +9 to all defensive stats, and also a +4 bonus to prayer if it is trimmed, which requires a separate skill at level 99. The cape is automatically trimmed if this condition is met.

When the ranging cape is equipped, it grants players the ammo-saving effects of Ava's accumulator. By default, the cape will only provide the 72% ammo-saving effect of the accumulator, not the improved 80% savings of Ava's assembler. However, Vorkath's head can be used on the cape to increase its ammo-saving rate to 80% to match the assembler (an assembler cannot be used as a substitute). This consumes the head, and will upgrade all ranging and max capes currently in possession or purchased in the future.

The ranging cape will also collect miscellaneous steel items (or mithril items after it has been upgraded with a Vorkath's head) into the player's inventory; as with the Ava's devices this can be disabled with the right-click Commune option.

This item can be stored in the cape rack of a costume room, as part of the Ranging cape set, along with the hood. Ultimate Ironmen will be unable to retrieve individual pieces until the full set is stored.

As of 1 August 2022, there are 350,220 current members that have achieved level 99 in Ranged.
