Valorant is a competitive multiplayer game where players want to obtain any advantage over their opponents. The players often try to emulate what the professional players are doing, and recently there has been a new crosshair in town: the circle crosshair!
We have watched players like Shroud and Scream use it very effectively, which intrigued our interest. The circle crosshair allows you always to be aware of your crosshair placement. This will help you improve your first-shot accuracy and help you win more aim duels!
We will look at how you can change your Valorant settings to get a circle crosshair.
Valorant Circle Crosshair Settings
You can go to your settings menu and open the Crosshair settings tab. The first thing that you need to do is switch off the outer lines option and switch on the inner lines option. You will notice that many other possibilities suddenly showed up below, and that’s where we will make our circle crosshair! You need to set everything exactly as mentioned below, and you will notice that your crosshair looks like a circle!
- The Inner Line Opacity – 1
- Inner Line Length – 1
- The Inner Line Thickness – 3
- Inner Line Offset – 1
We need to decide whether you want a hollow circle crosshair or a solid circle crosshair. It is entirely up to you, and you can decide what you like better. The way to change between the two is effortless. You need to turn on the center dot option for a solid circle crosshair in Valorant and turn it off for a hollow circle. Ultimately, it is your personal preference, so you can try both of them before settling on one.
Other Crosshair Settings
The next thing we need to decide is if you want the firing error and movement error turned on. We highly recommend you play without the movement error as it can be a little distracting even for experienced players. You also don’t need a firing error, but if you don’t have excellent recoil control, you can switch on the option.
The last decision is the color of your crosshair. We strongly recommend you go with a cyan or a green crosshair. We chose those colors because they work well on every map of Valorant. You can also choose White, but it gets a little hard to see in maps like Split and Fracture.
Additional FAQs about Circle Crosshairs in Valorant
Yes, within the crosshair settings screen, you can change the color of your crosshair. When selecting a color, you should keep in mind what will stand out best against the backgrounds in each level. You don’t want to get lost trying to find your aim.
Customizing your crosshair is completely allowed. Riot Games, which develops Valorant, does not punish anyone for changing up their crosshair. Some players think their custom crosshair gives them an advantage, yet because everyone can customize their crosshair in the same way, no one really is at an advantage.
