    My opinion is that it does not. I'm not entirely sure why D&D rangers got stuck with two weapon fighting, but it's very much tacked on. Archery certainly fits the hunter and stalker archetype, but such a character focusing on melee weapons is still a viable enough concept that ranged combat shouldn't be forced on them. After all, the archetypal Ranger, Aragorn, used what in D&D would probably be a bastard sword or longsword.
