hint for the future, questions such as this go in "help and advice" forum.

 

as for your question, if your looking for range items made of iron and are useing snakeskin im guessing you dont have too much money or to high a range level,

i advise trying to get a magic short bow + steel arrows (steel is about as cost efective as iron but faster xp) but other options are:

knifes (black, steel or iron),

the best cross-bow you can use + iron/steel bolts.

 

if you do a lot of d'nearing getting a sighted longbow is amazeing for accuracy, sighted bows have so much range attack that you can equip full rune and still have a decent attack. perfect if you dont want to safe spot! (not to mention the atractor does not wrok when safe spoting)

however, being a long bow the xp rate is still not very high

 

try to get dragon hide body and chaps as soon as you can, even f2p green d hide is better thern snake skin.

 

edit: javalins and throwing axes, most people think of them as useless trash, i ahighly advise not useing them if you have a short bow / cross-bow

Its for general discussion, not for help or advice. For range weapon just you use iron/steel arrows...

I think you're confused about the accumulator. It will bring back any kind of ammo from iron knifes to addy arrows (p++) to broad bolts that you shoot. It's just that it randomly picks up extra iron stuff, which most players find annoying and turn off.

 

EDIT: DO'H

 

I would then go with iron arrows, maybe kill some minotaurs in the SoS to get the range lvl for the accumulator.

it actually only picks up iron ammo and random iron things. the attractor.

The ATTRACTOR only picks up iron stuff.

 

The ACCUMULATOR picks up everything, and randomly generates STEEL items.

 

Neither work if you wear metal platebodies and neither will pick up ammo if there is an obstacle in the way.

In life, longbow is the best for far distance, and shurikens for short distance. And here I prefer arrows.

For training knives or darts due to their speed.

 

For anything else with range use an x bow due to the high power.

 

If you want an area to train use the minotaurs as suggested early or chaos druids. Minotaurs are good as they drop iron arrows while Chaos Druids are good because of the decent herb drops.
