Best Runescape Range Weapons
There are many different types of Runescape Range Weapons, from bows and arrows to throwing axes to crossbows. I personally do not think there is really a "best" weapon, but rather a weapon that is best for a person.
Over the years, I have heard numerous arguments over which weapons were the best. If they would stop looking at the over all best, which is impossible to call a weapon, they would be in much better shape. Let me explain. Say you have a new person just starting out; they have trained their range to level 5. You give them an Oak Bow and some steel arrows, and then to them, the Oak Bow is the best weapon. You can apply this is any weapon. So the next time you are in an argument over which is better, use what I just said. You will win the argument for sure, ha-ha.
In my opinion, the best type of Bow is the Crystal Bow. It is 80% more accurate than a Magic Longbow, it hit higher than Rune Arrows, and it does not use any arrows! This will save you a lot of money. The down side to this one is it does not have a special attack.
If I were going to pick the best Throwing Axe, I would have to say Rune. They have a special attack that will allow you to attack many monsters at once in a multi-combat zone.
As for the best Crossbow, I would have to say the Rune Crossbow, It does not have a specialty like the Dorgeshunn Crossbow does, but as it requires level 61 range, I would have to believe it hits better.
But again, these are my choices; they can be different for anyone. Here is another idea for you. Let's say that you have to do a quest. This quest requires a certain type of Throwing Axes. In this case, we will say that they are Bronze. So then, wouldn't Bronze Throwing Axes be the Best Runescape Range Weapons for that quest? I believe they would be.
I was listening to a player, he told me his top 5 Runescape Range Weapons. I will tell them to you.
5. Magic Shortbow because it can hit quite big with a high range level, it is also very cheap.
4. Karils Crossbow because it is very fast, it can hit big, and its not to expensive.
3. Crystal Bow because it can hit hard and fast, but it is only 3rd because it requires a quest and it can get very expensive.
2. Dark Bow because its special can be incredibly powerful, sadly it is slow and very expensive.
1. Rune Crossbow because the bolts can hit 50+, it is cheap, and average in speed. In addition to those, you can also wield a shield.
It is fun to hear what players think are the best, because each person will give you a different conclusion.
There are many different ways to rate the "best" weapons, but there is no way to call one the over all best. If you have your own opinion on what is the best, feel free to share them. Who knows what works for you might work for someone else as well? Happy Playing!
