Long Range Rangs is the first upgrade of Path 3 for the Boomerang Monkey in BTD6. It increases range by 15.1%, or from 43 to 49.5 units, and allows the boomerangs to travel on a wider arc (it is the only way of extending the arc).
With extra range and an extended arc, this upgrade can be helpful in certain maps where a specific increased arc range would help. However, Long Range Rangs is usually more of a stepping stone towards upgrades such as Red Hot Rangs.
This upgrade is a simple upgrade that simply acts as a boost to the Boomerang Monkey's range if needed. Certain maps may especially benefit from this, the most significant example being Infernal, as it allows a Boomerang Monkey to reach both lanes without assistance from Alch buffs.
Otherwise, this upgrade simply serves as a stepping stone to the next upgrades on this path.
Only affected by base Boomerang Monkey attack speed buff.
