Creating a nemesis group for my current party. Figured I'd go with a WarForged Fighter, Wood Elf Ranger, and a human blue mage sorcerer at +1 the parties level.

Was going to make the ranger a hunter sub class and noticed the colossus slayer gives this:

When you hit a creature with a weapon attack, the creature takes an extra 1d8 damage if it's below its hit point maximum ( 1/turn ).

I'm going to assume that this includes ranged weapons but thought I would ask just in case.

Yes.

The colossus slayer description uses the general term "weapon", and from the Weapons section in the PHB (page 146), melee and ranged weapons are considered weapons:

Every weapon is classified as either melee or ranged. A melee weapon is used to attack a target within 5 feet of you, whereas a ranged weapon is used to attack a target at a distance.
