How to Make a Your Crosshair Glow in Apex Legends?
Respawn Entertainment has prevented players from adding glows to the outer edges of their custom crosshair by not allowing any color values above 255 to be entered into the Hex Editor. So, there is no way for console and PC players who don't want to mess with their launch options and config files to make a glowing crosshair in Apex Legends.
The only way to do it is by going to the launch options of your Apex Legends client [Either Steam or Origin] and entering +reticle_color “hex code”. Using this launch command will force the game to boot with whatever hex code you enter & then it can even be any number above 255.
The Firing Range
The best place to see how the selected crosshair color settings look and feel would be the firing range in Apex Legends. You can spend as much time as you want and try out all the different reticle color combinations mentioned above.
You can even test each crosshair configuration with every weapon in the game while sliding, jumping, and using your abilities. Practicing in the range ensures that you are fully ready as you jump into the Ranked Leagues of Apex Legends.
