Valorant Crosshair Settings

Players will find numerous customization options in the Crosshair tab of the Settings menu.

The settings in Valorant allow players to fully customize their crosshair in-game. This means players can now have a different reticle for HIP Fire and ADS. They can also equip the sight for Sniper Rifles by customizing the crosshair.

Players can also save up to ten different crosshair profiles in Valorant. Thus, players can change the crosshair in-game to suit various maps, guns, and Agents if they feel the need.

How To Make A Circular Valorant Crosshair


The circle crosshair has become quite popular in Valorant. Top players like Shroud, Ethos, and other Radiant players prefer the circle crosshair over the traditional four-reticle design.

So how do you make a circle crosshair in Valorant? It is relatively simple if players know all the crosshair settings thoroughly. Head to Crosshair settings, and here's a walkthrough:

  • Switch off outlines.
  • Switch on the 'Show Inner Lines' option, and head to the settings.

The following Inner Line settings will give players the circle crosshair in Valorant:

  • Inner Line Opacity - 1
  • Inner Line Length - 1
  • Inner Line Thickness - 3
  • Inner Line Offset - 1

Then head to the Center Dot settings. If you want a solid circle crosshair, then switch on the Center Dot and increase its size to fill the cavity. On the other hand, if players want a hollow circle crosshair, then simply switch off the Center Dot.

According to skilled players, adding a minor firing error to the circle crosshair makes it easier to control a weapon's recoil, too. Essentially, the reticles of the circular crosshair will show a slight gap during recoil. This method is exceedingly clever to control a gun's recoil pattern in VALORANT.


Best Colour For Valorant Crosshair

The ideal colour for a crosshair in Valorant is any colour that primarily helps with visibility. While it's a personal preference, most players tend to choose colours which stand out across all six maps in Valorant.

Tyson "TenZ" Ngo, one of the top Valorant professionals globally, prefers Cyan to White or Green for his crosshair. Statistically, Cyan stands out most in comparison to map atmospheres and biomes. However, players are advised to change the enemy highlight colour to complement the crosshair colour, so don't forget about that.
