If you are a Valorant player currently wondering how you can play like a pro, then changing your settings might be a good start. The pro player we have chosen today to tell you about is Hiko. We will talk about Hiko’s history as a player and tell you about the crosshair and settings he is currently using in Valorant. It will be an in-depth guide with the reasoning behind most of the settings so you can make an informed decision.
Who is Hiko?
Spencer “Hiko” Martin is a Valorant player, currently playing for 100 Thieves. Hiko is one of the best in-game leaders of all time and has previously shown his expertise in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He had such an influence on the game that his opponents still hold him in the highest regard.
Hiko didn’t win many titles in his career, but he changed the way players viewed the game. He is known for his big-brain tactics in the game. That’s why we think we should explore Hiko’s Valorant settings as they might show us some secret techniques.
Hiko Crosshair Settings
Here are the Hiko crosshair settings in Valorant.
Center Dot: On / 1 / 1
Inner Lines: 1 / 2 / 1 / 3
Outer Lines: 1 / 5 / 2 / 4
Movement Error: Off
Firing Error: On
These seem pretty standard, but the one thing that stands out is the firing error being on. The pro players are so good with their recoil control that they don’t need it. However, Hiko has opted for the firing error facility, which might help you too.
The firing error tells you how much your recoil is spread around the target. This can act as a reminder to focus on your crosshair placement.
The other important thing to notice is the color for crosshair being green. Most of the players use a White or Cyan crosshair but if you are a CS: GO player, then there is a good chance you are used to the default Green crosshair settings. We would highly recommend you get used to the green color for your crosshair as that works well on every map in the game. There might be some problem in the Viper ultimate ability, but that’s where your crosshair placement comes in!
Hiko’s Mouse Settings
Hiko plays with one of the highest sensitivity in the professional scene. It is in the 90th percentile of eDPIs. We won’t recommend you to play at this sensitivity, to be honest, unless you are a pro player yourself. It takes years of practice to get used to it. Since you are searching for Valorant crosshair settings, you are probably a beginner yourself.
We recommend you play with an eDPI around 200-350 as that’s what the majority of the players play Valorant with.

Hiko’s Mouse and Keyboard
Hiko uses a Final Mouse Starlight-12 Phantom as his main mouse. It is one of the most expensive mouses in the market, but if you want to set up everything like Hiko, you can check out the mouse here.
Hiko plays with a Razer Black Widow TE. Still, we don’t see why you need to buy such an expensive keyboard when there are cheaper alternatives available in the market.
We hope that you learned more about the optimal settings in Valorant with the help of Hiko. FPSChampion highly recommends you try out the Hiko Crosshair, as that will most likely help you win more games. We will see you soon with other player-centered settings guides, so stay tuned and have fun!
