Two major classes of ranged weapons exist: bows and crossbows, which usually have limited ammunition, and spells, magic weapons which do not have ammunition. Some weapons with ammo cannot benefit from the effect of the Ammo mutation, they are denoted with † in the following table (namely Frost Blast, Hokuto's Bow, Ice Shard and Boomerang).
