VALORANT crosshairs 101
You can’t master VALORANT without the right crosshair – one that helps you lock targets in your sights and land strings of glorious headshots.
You’ll never get that with the default crosshair. But amid all the adrenaline and thrills of VALORANT, it’s all too easy to overlook the crosshair’s impact on your frag rate – even daily players can become snared in the trap of rarely switching theirs.
Watch the pros though, you’ll spot how often they change their crosshair, even slightly.
Small adjustments may seem trivial, but they’re the most important of all. The best crosshair should have strong visibility on any map.
The right crosshair is as much a part of your team as the other 4 agents. A crosshair you’re comfortable with will dramatically improve your aim and your game.
You want a faster aim and better accuracy? A new crosshair could give you both. Drop that default and take your first step from casual player to VALORANT champion-in-the-making.
Designing your crosshair
The wrong crosshair choice can be the difference between a hit and a miss.
VALORANT lets you customize your crosshair in a lot of ways. The best way to familiarize with them is to experiment, but here’s a quick lowdown of the main options you’ve got…
Choose from eight colors, or set your own custom color using a hex code. Bright colors with high contrast are best.
Turn on or off the black outer edges that highlight your crosshair, and change their opacity and thickness. Helps with crosshair visibility.
Turn on or off a dot in the middle of your crosshair, and adjust its opacity and thickness. Best for players using larger crosshairs.
Override firing error offset with crosshair offset
Fades the top half of your crosshair when your spray is off-target while firing an automatic weapon. Best for novices learning the ropes.
Customize the inside of your crosshair, adjusting line opacity, thickness, length, and position (offset). Most pro players use these instead of outer lines.
Customize the outside of your crosshair, with the same options as inner lines. Not often used by experienced players.
Causes your crosshair to expand as you move, getting wider as you walk, run, and widest when you jump. Only used by novices who need the visual reminder that moving reduces accuracy.
Enlarges your crosshair while you’re firing to show recoil effect on your aim. Helpful for novices, rarely used by pros.
Show spectated player’s crosshair
Lets you look at a teammate’s crosshair and copy their crosshair settings.
Allows you to adjust crosshair settings when aiming down the sights and for sniper scopes.
Where you import and export crosshair codes, edit your profile name, or duplicate profile.
How to copy crosshairs
Copying VALORANT crosshairs is dead easy:
- Spectate the players on your team while mid-game.
- Find someone whose crosshair you want to copy.
- Open the chat and type /crosshair copy or /cc.
- Open the Settings menu, then click Crosshair.
- The crosshair you copied will be saved as a new profile ready to use or edit.

How to import crosshairs
How do you import a crosshair code to quickly recreate someone else’s a killer crosshair?
Easy, just copy/paste the code into your settings menu. Here’s how…
- Copy the crosshair code.
- Open VALORANT’s Settings menu, then the Crosshair tab.
- Click the Import Profile Code button (in the Crosshair Profile section).
- Paste the crosshair code into the text box.
- Click Import.
- (optional) Click Edit Profile Name and rename your new crosshair.
Make sure you choose the right crosshair for you. If a crosshair obscures your target or just doesn’t feel right, don’t be afraid to tweak it until it works.
You can only have 15 crosshair profiles saved at any one time, so prune any duds that you’re not using and keep your crosshair options sharp.
What makes a top crosshair?
You can make pretty much any kind of crosshair you want, but the best crosshairs in VALORANT always have a few similarities.
Follow these guidelines and you’ll have a top crosshair of your own:
- Choose bright colors that contrast with most backgrounds, like green, red, or cyan.
- Use even values to help with crosshair accuracy.
- Turn the movement error setting off to minimize distraction.
- Create a crosshair that doesn’t fully obscure enemy agents.
Of course, the best crosshair is always going to be the one that suits you best and that you can comfortably aim with, but these guidelines will serve you well.
Be flexible, too – a fan-favorite cyan crosshair will stand out on most maps, but it’ll blend right in on a map like Icebox with all that ice and snow kicking around.
