Ranged is a free-to-play skill that allows players to attack enemies from a distance with bows (more ranged weapons in members).
When training ranged, you should always use the best bow, arrows, and ranged gear that you can use. At level 1 this would be full leather gear and a shortbow with iron arrows. At level 5 you can use an oak shortbow with steel arrows. At level 10 you can switch to a hardleather body. At level 20 switch to studded body and chaps, and a willow shortbow with mithril arrows. At level 30 you can use a maple shortbow with adamant arrows. And finally at level 40, you can use green dragonhide body, chaps, and vambrances.

Low Level Methods
Starting out (Levels 1-20)
You will begin training ranged by killing low level monsters in Lumbridge. From 1-10 kill chickens, from 10-20 kill cows. Always train ranged using the rapid attack style for faster xp/h.
Fast Training Methods
Fastest Training Methods (20-99)
At level 20 ranged, you will start killing hill giants in the Edgeville Dungeon, you will need to buy a brass key from the Grand Exchange to enter. You can make a bit of profit here by looting their limpwurt roots, runes, and big bones. You will stay here until 40 ranged.
From levels 40-60, you will kill moss giants which can be found in the Varrock sewers. You can also make profit here from the runes they drop.
From levels 60-99 you will kill lesser demons in the Karamja volcano. Lesser demons have some decent drops such as rune med helms and runes, they can be safespotted. If you have 55+ magic, you should take runes for high level alchemy.
At 70 ranged, some players prefer to switch to killing ankous in the Stronghold of Security's forth level. You will need to bring food for training on ankous.
