Range is a value that defines how far a basic attack, ability, summoner spell, and item active can reach.

Range is defined in an arbitrary quantities of "units". It shares the scale of "units" with movement speed, so one point translates to one game distance unit traveled. Note that basic attack range is defined differently than ability range.

Given a source unit's hitbox and a target unit's hitbox, range is calculated as follows: basic attack range from edge to edge; targeted skill range from center to center; skillshot range from edge to edge*; and the range of self-centered area of effects are from the edge of the source (the larger champions don't benefit less from auras than smaller champions). The difference is approximately 100 (i.e. 550 basic attack range is roughly 650 casting range)[1][2][3]

Each champion begins the game with a particular base basic attack range. This can vary from 125 to 250 for melee units and 300 to 650 for ranged units. As of V9.22, Caitlyn OriginalSquare Caitlyn has the highest base basic attack range at level 1 with 650. The highest possible range is held by Senna OriginalSquare Senna, whose passive, Absolution Absolution, allows her range to scale indefinitely.

Range Type Differences

The following game elements have their effects modified based on the champion range type, Melee role melee or Ranged role ranged. Champion with range type modifiers are not affected by item range-restrictions.

Size Modifiers

Ranges calculated from the Range model edge of a champion's hitbox will see an increase or decrease in reach based on the champion's current size. Note that a change in range due to the champion's size is only relative to the champion's center and is not an explicitly mentioned effect (i.e. the champion's attack range stat will not increase).

Targeted Abilities (Exceptions)

The following targeted spells calculate their range like a basic attack (Range model edge-to-edge)


Trivia

  • Range icon Attack ranges can have negative values.
