How to change crosshair in Valorant
Having a good crosshair setting is just one of the many keys to killing enemies and winning a round in Valorant. Thanks to Riot Games' recent update to Valorant, it is now easier to copy the crosshair settings of professional players and streamers.
But if the crosshairs of these Valorant players are not for you, you can easily tweak them to your personal liking if you know how to explore the crosshair settings. At the end of this guide, you should be able to use different crosshair settings depending on the agent you use or the map you are playing.
Through Importing/Exporting Crosshair Profiles
If you don’t know the nitty-gritty of crosshairs in Valorant, you should be thanking Riot Games for their update that lets any player import and export their Valorant crosshair settings.
If you already have the code on your computer, you can easily import it into your Valorant profile by following these steps:
Press the ‘ESC’ key on the upper left side of your keyboard or click the gear icon in the upper right side corner of your screen
Go to the ‘Settings’ menu, then click the ‘Crosshair’ tab
In the ‘Generals’ tab, click the download icon in the ‘Crosshair Profile’ part. It is the third button from the left after the trash bin and upload icons.
Copy the code of the crosshair you want to have.
During the match, you can also copy the crosshair settings of your teammates by making sure that the 'Spectated Player's Crosshair' setting is on, then use the in-game chat command "/cc" or "/crosshair copy" when spectating another player.
After typing that command, you can easily import your teammate's crosshair, including the crosshair color, and inner and outer lines, since you already got its code.
By Manually Adjusting Valorant crosshairs
If you tried using other people’s crosshairs, but you don’t see yourself successful in killing enemies, you can quickly create a new crosshair to your liking or adjust the crosshair you imported.
In the 'Crosshair' menu, you can see the crosshair settings split into three sections: Crosshair, Inner Lines, and Outer Lines. Each section contains several settings perfect for players still creating the perfect crosshair.
The Crosshair section includes options that most players don't usually use since these options can be turned on and off depending on your liking. This section has three parts: Color, Outline, and Center Dot, which are self-explanatory.
The white in the middle is the center dot, with its opacity and thickness at the highest value, while the black is the outline, with its opacity and thickness also at the highest value.
Inner Lines section
If you don’t want a dot crosshair, you can adjust the line opacity, thickness, and length to create the size and formation of your crosshair in the Inner Lines section.
This is what a crosshair looks like when all the parts of the Inner Line section are at the highest value. The space in the middle can be adjusted through the Inner Line Offset, while the vertical and horizontal lines can be adjusted to different values.
You can also turn on or off the fade crosshair with movement and firing errors to your liking.
Outer Lines section
The last section is the Outer Lines Section, which has the same features as the Inner Line section since you can also change the opacity, thickness, and length of the outer line.
Since the outer lines serve as the border to inner lines, it is primarily used when the firing and movement error settings are on. If all things are at the highest value, here is what it would look like:
How to change Shotgun crosshair in Valorant?
We all know that all guns in Valorant use your primary crosshair except the Bucky and the Judge since they use the shotgun crosshair, which is a circle with a center dot. If you want to change the crosshair of your shotguns in Valorant, follow these steps:
In the 'Crosshair' menu, go to the 'General' tab and enable the 'Use Advanced Options' settings under the Crosshair section.
Go to the 'Primary' tab, and enable the 'Override All Primary Crosshairs With My Primary Crosshair.'
After these steps, play a custom match or enter The Range to confirm if the shotguns are now using your main crosshair. However, be careful with using your primary crosshair, even if your weapon is a shotgun since it requires a lot of adjustment.
Regardless if your crosshair is just a center dot or its outline opacity is at the highest value, using the best Valorant crosshair settings for you is the key to having pinpoint accuracy since it is the visual indicator of where the bullets would go.
