Range is a measurement used to determine how far an autoattack or ability can reach. Riot tends to describe that distance in a vague unit of measure called Units. It shares the scale of "units" with movement speed, so one point translates to one game distance unit traveled. Note that autoattack range is measured differently to ability range. Given a source unit's hitbox and a target unit's hitbox, range is calculated as follows: autoattack 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 autoattack range is roughly 650 casting range)
Each champion begins the game with a particular base autoattack range. This can vary from 125 to 200 for melee units and 400 to 650 for ranged units. The highest base autoattack range for champions is held by Caitlyn. At level 18, the highest autoattack range is 669 held by Tristana surpassing Caitlyn at level 16 with 650 autoattack range. This is because of Tristana's Draw a Bead.

Range Type Modifiers
The following abilities change a champion attack classification from "Ranged" to "Melee", or vice versa. This affects things such as Crest of Cinders, , , , , and .
- Elise's Spider Form decreases her attack range to 125 from 550 until she switches stances.

Size Model Modifiers
Ranges calculated from the 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).
Thus far, Zac is the only champion with the innate quality of constantly modifying his size.
- His maximum size is increased by his maximum health.
- His current size fluctuates based on his current health percentage.
- Cho'Gath's Feast (also grants explicitly increased attack range)
- Lulu's Wild Growth
- Nasus's Fury of the Sands (also grants explicitly increased attack range)
- Nunu's Rough Rock Candy
- Renekton's Dominus
- Trundle's Subjugate (On himself)
- Volibear's Thunder Claws
While the following items do not explicitly increase the champion's attack range, they do increase the champion's size - allowing them to reach targets further away from their current location:
