In Destiny, RANGEFINDER is a Weapon Upgrade that can be found on nearly every Weapon in the game. Weapons in Destiny pull each Upgrade at random from specific pools (with a few Weapons that are an exception). This Upgrade increases your weapon's range, effectively increasing your damage at longer distances.
