Ready, Aim, Fire! Distant Targets (Ranger Treasure for short) is a stage in Treasure Road, found in Natural Plains. This stage tasks Kirby with completing a challenge revolving around the use of Ranger, requiring him to fire at Target Switches to unlock the way forward. The stage is unlocked after completing Rocky Rollin' Road with all its Waddle Dees rescued. It is marked by two stars of difficulty and has a stage time of two and a half minutes (two minutes in Wild Mode), with a target time of one minute.

Stage details[edit]

The stage features four main shooting areas, with Kirby being ferried on a moving platform to each one after shooting his targets. The first area is a simple one, only requiring Kirby to shoot one stationary target. The second area features two targets moving back and forth. The third area features three targets, which are obscured by a moving wall, and a Bernard on a Star Block guards them. The fourth and final range features three targets, two of which duck in and out from the sides, and the third in the middle being obscured by a set of moving walls. Three Bernards guard this range. Once all the targets are shot, Kirby is taken to the Rare Stone platform, which is guarded by a line of Kabu.


The following are tips on how to attain the target time for this stage:

  • Kirby would do well to start charging his shots while the platform is moving to the next range, so he can fire more quickly upon reaching it.
  • The Bernards' shots will block any smaller shots from Kirby, so he needs to get out of the way to deal with the Bernards. It is best to deal with any Bernards before trying to shoot the targets.
  • In the second range, a well-positioned and timed fully-charged shot can hit both targets at once.
