The Ranger is a firearm in Dying Light introduced in The Following. It can be purchased from shops, found in loot caches and rarely, in the trunks of police sedans and vans.

The default variant can be found in a chest sunken in The Eye of the Sun's cave, in the sub-section Wishing Well for the side quest The Thrill of the Chase.


Exclusive in The Following expansion pack, it is initially a rare find and can be most likely found being sold in shops.

Comparing to the Six-Shooter, The Ranger has a higher firepower and value, and lower rate of fire while both's accuracy remains the same. Comparing to the Quickshooter, it is similar to the Six-Shooter comparison with the exception being the Ranger has a lower rate of fire.


There is only one variant of the Ranger available in The Following.

  • Rusted Ranger

  • The drum of the revolver is from a percussion version, meaning that its loading ingame is inaccurate.
  • The Ranger appears to resemble the Colt 1848 army or dragoon revolver however it is actually a Colt Walker. This is a possible reference to Techland's Call of Juarez having a similar revolver called the Ranger. 
  • Like the Quick Shooter and the Six-Shooter, the Ranger oddly appears to share the same ammunition with the Pistol Ammo, which is .45 FMJ rounds.
  • In The Following's demo, the Ranger can be found on a chair's arm.
  • It is strong enough to kill a Goon with 1 headshot and a Demolisher with 3. [Normal]
