This article is about a ranger's maximum hit. For other uses, see Maximum hit.

Maximum ranged hit is a term used to describe the highest amount of damage rangers can inflict. Currently the maximum ranged hit is 100.

Maximum hit conditionsEdit

As the Corporeal beast has 2,000 hitpoints, in theory Ruby bolts (e) would be capable of hitting a 400, assuming no hitpoints from the Corporeal beast was lost. However, it has been capped at a maximum of 100 to prevent the bolts from being overpowered.

Note that the max hit with ruby bolts (e) is a special effect of the bolts, not due to equipment bonuses and ranged level.

Calculating your maximum ranged hitEdit

With the addition of Ranged strength values, calculating a maximum ranged hit is now fairly easy.

Note: The trunc (truncate) function is used throughout the formula - this simply means ignore any decimal places of the number being truncated.

Step one: Calculate the effective strength levelEdit

Effective\ Strength=trunc((Ranged\ Level+PotionBonus)\times Prayer\ Bonus\times Other\ Bonus)+Style\ Bonus

See the following table for the various bonuses values:

Condition Bonus/Multiplier
Potion (note: addition not multiplier)
Ranging potion 4 + floor(10% of level)
Sharp Eye 1.05
Hawk Eye 1.1
Eagle Eye 1.15
Void ranger armour 1.2
Style (note: addition not multiplier)
Accurate 3
Longrange 1
Rapid 0

Step two: Calculate the base damageEdit

Base\ Damage=1.3+\frac{Effective\ Strength}{10}+\frac{Ranged\ Strength}{80}+\frac{Effective\ Strength\times Ranged\ Strength}{640}

If you are not using a special attack or effect:

Max\ Hit=trunc(Base\ Damage)

Otherwise, continue to step three.

Step three: Calculate the bonus damageEdit

Max\ Hit=floor(Base\ Damage\times Special\ Bonus)

The following special attack/effect bonuses apply (note: the various bolts bonuses only apply when the special effect activates):

Attack/Effect Multiplier
Special attacks
Dark bow (dragon arrows) 1.5
Dark bow (other arrows) 1.3
Bolts' Special effects
Diamond bolts (e) 1.15
Dragon bolts (e) 1.45
Onyx bolts (e) 1.15
Opal bolts (e) 1.25
