Best Crosshairs in Valorant (Including Pros like Ninja, Shroud, ScreaM, and Hiko)

Valorant: Best crosshairs

When playing a first-person shooter game, having a comfortable crosshair is a big step to improving your gameplay. This guide will show you some of the best crosshairs in Valorant, all the settings you need to transfer those crosshairs to your game as well as some tips and tricks on making your own.

Why is Crosshair Important?

Before we dive into some of the most popular crosshairs for Valorant let’s understand why is setting up the best crosshair for yourself is so important.

  1. Aesthetics. You want the crosshair to be aesthetically appealing as it will make your gaming experience smoother. And when you like what you see, your performance will go up as well. Just like sometimes you may feel that you play better with a certain skin on the weapon. That’s not a good reason to waste money though.
  2. Distraction. Crosshair gives you information about your movement and spray. When you move the crosshair widens and the same when you shoot indicating your sprays accuracy. It can be distracting especially when you already played for some while and can intuitivelly feel how the spray will go.
  3. Vision obstruction. Depending on your playstyle some parts of the crosshair may obstruct your vision when shooting heads or even bodies. Maybe you will feel more comfortable without the top line to see the head better, only you can know.

These are the main reasons for you to have a personalized crosshair. And yes, all of them will highly affect your performance in the game.

How to Set up a Custom Crosshair in Valorant?

Let’s see how to set up the crosshair in Valorant first. Unlike CS:GO, you won’t have to enter commands in the console or use community maps. Everything is provided by the game itself.

Boot up Valorant and head to the settings (the gear icon on the top right). There you can find a section called “crosshair”.

The “Primary” tab is your main crosshair. By enabling the “Use Advanced Options” you will be able to customize the aim down sights and your sniper crosshairs.

All of that can then be saved in the profiles that you can then switch in a second.

The Dot is not something everyone can play with even though it is considered one of the best crosshairs for FPS games. This crosshair is literally just a dot on the screen. By default, it doesn’t have any errors on, so the dot will never move. You can change that by adjusting some of the lines that will hide behinds the dot and go wide when you shoot or move.

  • Colour: Any
  • Outlines: OFF
  • Center dot: ON/1/4
  • Override: OFF
  • Inner lines: OFF
  • Outer lines: OFF
