Which Overwatch 2 crosshair should you use?

This is a pretty subjective choice but you should look through all of them yourself. The dot is a solid choice, taking up very little of the screen. This being said, you have a tougher time planning out the sway and spread of your weapon if it has a high fire rate.

If you play a character like Soldier 76 or Tracer, two characters with a bit of recoil, you may opt for something a little larger.

The dot works well for sniper and long-range hitters whereas Crosshairs is a fine medium allowing you to plan out mid-range hits.
