Ranged weapons are weapons used in ranged combat, and they provide a means to attack targets from a distance. There are many different types of ranged weapons, but they are usually separated into two main types: and .
Projectile weapons have magazines, whereas electronic weapons have batteries and use electric energy to shoot. If the weapon has a magazine it needs to have to shoot; and if it has an energy value, it cannot shoot if it has as many ACS damage as that value.
A weapon’s effectiveness is related to the distance to its target.. Most weapons have two different ranges and a few specialist weapons have a third range.
Close Quarters (CQ) range is up to 20 metres. The most common range indoors, inside spaceships or in dense urban areas.
Standard Distance (SD) range is from 20 to 100 metres. The range most characters can see clearly without magnification.
Long Distance (LD) range is from 100 metres to 5 kilometres. The extended range of some sniper rifles. The weapon loses one point of damage and receives one disadvantage for every additional kilometre after the first.
