Before 1.2, Ranged had the best DPS in the game, armed with the Megashark. Then, 1.2's Spectre Armor, Shadowbeam Staff and Inferno Fork came. The Pumpkin Moon breathed a little life into Ranged, with the Candy Corn Rifle and Jack o' Lantern Launcher, but the Frost Moon stomped it into the ground, giving it only the Snowman Launcher as a weapon. Note that this list is my opinion only.
