The void ranger helm is a piece of Void Knight equipment obtained as a reward from the Pest Control minigame. It can be bought from a Void Knight for 200 commendation points; players also must have at least 42 Attack, Strength, Defence, Hitpoints, Ranged, Magic and 22 Prayer to buy and wear one.
The ranger helm grants the player a 10% boost to Ranged damage (12.5% with Elite equipment) and a 10% boost to Ranged accuracy if worn alongside the other three equipment pieces (Void knight top, Void knight robe and Void knight gloves). The Void knight mace is not required for the bonus.
It should be noted that while void knight armour significantly increases Ranged output against targets which are lacking in Defence, the substantial attack bonus provided by regular ranged armour makes the latter more effective against stronger opponents such as bosses.
If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 40,000 coins by using the item on Perdu.
Equipping a full set of void is a requirement of the Elite Western Provinces Diary.

- Originally, the ranger helm would provide a 20% boost to Ranged damage along with its 10% accuracy boost when used with the set. The damage boost was reduced to 10% in an update on 25 May 2017.
