Valorant like any other FPS shooter game requires a good aim in order to be at your best level and be able to frag. Therefore, Players try to make a ‘crosshair’ that suits them so they can hit every shot possible. More often, They tend to copy professional players' settings hoping it will fix their aim and make them better.

However, does copying others’ settings help you improve? What is even a ‘crosshair’ to start with? What’s the best crosshair and how to effectively use it?

If you want to find out about all that and more, Then this guide is for you!

What is a Crosshair:

A crosshair is a circular range most commonly associated with aiming and firing weapons; often used in shooter games like Valorant.

In other words,It lets the players know what and where they are going to shoot.

Crosshairs in Valorant:

The crosshair in Valorant can be different from the other FPS shooter games. If you compare most of the professional players’ crosshair between Valorant and their previous games such as CSGO, Overwatch … etc, You’ll notice that there’s a difference.

The main reason the crosshair changes with the game is because the hitboxes differ too.

As the hitbox in Valorant might seem smaller, Most professional players tend to use a crosshair that is from small to medium size.

Notice: Crosshairs are a personal preference. Depending on the settings, resolution and aspect ratio of the player, So what suits you might or might not suit others.

How to customize your crosshair:

In order to access the VALORANT Crosshair settings, Click on the cogwheel in the top right of the home screen and hit settings. In the middle of the top bar, you will find the field “crosshair”. Click on that one to start setting up.

The page would look like this:

Best Crosshair And Best Settings To Use:

Like mentioned previously, Crosshairs are a personal preference. However there are few tips in order to make the best Valorant crosshair.

These tips are generated from a selective common settings shared among professional players. If someone is making a living out of it then most likely he is the best one to benefit and learn from.

For further customization, Click on ‘Primary’ right next general and detailed settings will show to you.

  • Crosshair color: the color plays a big role in making the best crosshair; Having a light color or a too dark color can significantly ruin the visibility of the crosshair in different areas and surfaces around the map. Therefore, The sweet spot and best color should be around a green or cyan as it’s what most pros go for and appear well on all the surfaces in the game.
  • Outlines: The shadow can help your crosshair in being more visible if you chose a light color, Some players will find it not suitable if it's too thick. That’s why you can adjust the opacity and thickness of it.
  • Center dot: Most of the players have it switched off, As the players who like a dot in their crosshairs prefer to play with a complete ‘dot crosshair’ over the four lines.
  • Override Firing Error Offset With Crosshair Offset: It’s best to set it off. However if you’re a new player it can help you as the top lines of the crosshair fade when your spray is off.
  • Override All Primary Crosshairs with My Primary Crosshair: This setting will allow you to look at your teammates crosshairs during a match. If you like theirs better, you can tweak it in the settings.This option doesn’t affect your crosshair.
  • Inner & outer lines:This is the most important section of the options, as you'll adjust the opacity, length, thickness, and distance to finally have your desired crosshair.

The other settings are once again down to personal preference, Both of Movement Error and Firing Error are set to off in order to have a static crosshair that doesn’t distract you from aiming.

At the beginning, it’s ok to test different crosshairs with different settings. The best way to test a crosshair is by adjusting all the wanted settings; Then start a deathmatch game so you could get the feeling of it, Check the visibility in different surfaces and more importantly if you feel comfortable with it.

It’s important to understand that Crosshairs are subjective, And the best Crosshair is your own crosshair. Copying your favorite player will never make you as good as him, So it’s better to make your own settings that work for you and make you feel comfortable and confident the most.

Things to look after when making a crosshair:

  • Make sure your crosshair doesn’t distract you: Whether it’s the color or shape, make sure to have a crosshair that doesn’t distract you and have you looking at it too often.
  • Make sure the color is visible on all surfaces and areas around different maps.
  • Make sure you’re comfortable with the size: A too big crosshair can cover your screen and a too small crosshair can be hard to see, So find a sweet spot that is perfect.
