OSRS Ranged Gear Guide with Stats
Currently, the best OSRS Ranged Gear differs massively depending on whether you are an F2P player or a P2P player.
In this article, we’ll be taking a look at ranged gear for both free to play and subscribing members.
We have also provided some information on how you can acquire the gear, how much it costs, and what level you need to be to wear the gear.
What’s the top Ranged Gear for F2P players?
- The best range gear is green D’hide with a Maple Bow
- You must be level 40 ranged to equip it
- You need roughly 10K gold to purchase the gear
- There are no other requirements
The offering of range gear for F2P players is quite limited. Just like with melee gear, you will reach the cap at level 40. Any higher-level gear is exclusive to P2P members.
Once you reach level 40 ranged, you should purchase the following gear, for a rough total price of 10K.
- Amulet of power
- Maple bow
- Green d’hide body
- Green d’hide chaps
- Green d’hide vamb
- Leather boots
At this level, all of the gear is incredibly cheap. You should opt for a standard cape over a team cape – they offer the same benefits but the standard cape weighs nothing, as opposed to the 0.4kg weight of the team cape.
You should use adamant arrows at this level – it’s the best available option for F2P players. Each arrow costs roughly 70 gold, so this could easily be the most expensive part of your gear.
Even if you buy 1,000 arrows, you’ll still be looking at a total price under 100K.
Another thing to keep in mind is that there are no rings that offer any ranged benefits so this slot will be empty if you are a F2P player.
There isn’t any alternative gear for F2P players and at such a low cost, there’s no reason to look for different range gear to purchase.

What’s the top Ranged Gear for P2P players?
- The best range gear Is Armadyl with extra gear
- Extra gear Includes Pegasian Boots, Twisted Buckler, Barrows Gloves, and Necklace of Anguish
- You must be level 75 ranged and defense to wear this gear
- You need roughly 180 million gold
- A cheaper option for 1.3 million is available
- There are a variety of other requirements for some gear
If you are a P2P player, the options you have for range gear is expanded massively. The particular set explained below is the best option.
You can purchase most gear from the Grand Exchange, but some items have other requirements.
First, we’ll take a look at the gear you can purchase straight from the Grand Exchange without any requirements.
- Necklace of Anguish – 16M
- Dragonstone dragon bolts (e) – 1.6K each
- Armadyl Crossbow – 32M
- Armadyl Chestplate – 42M
- Armadyl Chainskirt – 34M
- Armadyl helmet – 4.5M
- Pegasian Boots – 36.5M
- Twisted Buckler – 10M
The total cost for this gear without accounting for the bolts is 175 Million. Admittedly, it’s very expensive.
If you are low on money, a cheaper alternative is provided below. Keep in mind that this gear is essentially two tiers below the gear above. You need 40 Defense and 70 Ranged to equip this gear.
- Guthix Coif – 75K
- Guthix Dragonhide – 130K
- Guthix Chaps – 90K
- Guthix Bracers – 6K
- Guthix d’hide boots – 900K
- Amulet of Glory – 12K
- Black d’hide Shield – 18K
- Rune crossbow – 10K
The total cost for this gear is 1.3M, making it more than 10 times cheaper than the first option.
Once you have one of the base gear sets provided above, the next step is to get the remaining gear. The gear below has different requirements.
- Ava’s Assembler
- Barrows Gloves
- Archers Ring (i)

To get Ava’s assembler, you must upgrade Ava’s accumulator, which is available after completing the Dragon Slayer II quest. To upgrade the accumulator, you need to speak to Vorkath’s head and have 75 mithril arrows and the accumulator, or 4,999 GP. You can find Vorkath’s head in Draynor Manor.
To acquire Barrows Gloves, you must complete the Recipe for Disaster quest. To complete this quest, you must have a total of 175 Quest points or more. Once you have done this, you can purchase the gloves for 130K from the Culinaromancer’s Chest in Lumbridge Castle.
Finally, to get the Archers Ring (i), you must first purchase a standard Archers Ring from the Grand Exchange for 4.6M. After that, you can imbue it for 650,000 reward points from the Nightmare Zone.
If you don’t want to go through the effort, you can just use the standard Archers Ring. If you cannot afford it, you can choose to skip over the item entirely.
If you choose to collect all of the P2P gear we have picked out, you will have the best-ranged stats possible. Your character will have a ranged attack of +236.
If you would like alternative options for the ring, gloves, and cape slots, we have some options listed below.
If you cannot afford the Archers Ring, another option would be to get the cheap ring of recoil. This ring only costs 1.2K but it can deflect up to 40 hit points of damage before being destroyed. It’s a potential game-changer in PVP.
For PVE, the best option is clearly the ring of wealth. This ring costs 14K and it gives the player better drops when fighting monsters.
We’d highly recommend investing the time into getting the Ava’s Assembler item, but if you don’t want to put in the time, you can use the Infernal cape or Fire cape. If not, the ranging cape is a good option. No other capes will offer you any ranged benefits.
If you cannot get the Barrows Gloves, a cheap alternative would be the Spined Gloves. They require 50 defense and give +4 ranged attack and defense.
If you have money to spend, you can get the Armadyl gloves for 2.7M. These give you +11 ranged attack and +1 Prayer. In comparison, the Barrows gloves give +12 attack/defense.
This wraps up our look at the best OSRS Ranged Gear available for both free players and OSRS members. Hopefully, the information in this article has proven to be useful.
