Data is based on analyzing a selection of the most popular Valorant players as of September 2022.

Color

Within our player sample set, cyan had the highest color pick rate at 35%. Green and white followed closely behind with pick rates of 29% each. We do think most players will have an edge choosing cyan based on its visibility and the contrasting nature of its color across Valorant maps.

That said, green and white are popular alternatives that offer similar levels of visibility.

Dot

A good crosshair for Valorant has the center dot off, and that’s a similar belief held by pros. 76% of players in our sample use crosshairs with the dot off.

While adding a dot can help center your crosshair on a target, the dot isn’t visible enough at distance to be useful without increasing thickness. In that scenario, the added dot thickness can obscure targets and potentially reduce accuracy.

Our suggested inner lines help offset the lack of a dot with a balanced length and offset that is easy to target enemies fast.

If you prefer a dot Valorant crosshair, read on below. We don’t want to leave you hanging and have provided what we view as a good dot crosshair for Valorant.

Outlines

We deviate slightly from the best Valorant players when it comes to outlines. 76% of Valorant pros turn off outlines, but that’s not the best approach for the majority of players who aren’t as skilled as pros. The added thickness can help your crosshair stand out against the various backdrops within Valorant.

This is most important against backdrop colors that are close on the color spectrum to Cyan. Similar colors appear quite frequently within Valorant with various blue and green colors across the maps. Turning off outlines can mean losing sight of your Valorant crosshair.

Outer lines

Adding outer lines around the inner lines of your crosshair doesn’t grant much additional value to help center your sights on a target. Accordingly, it’s best to keep your Valorant crosshair simple and get the right color and inner lines instead.

Where outer lines can be useful is when you want to get creative with your Valorant crosshair, including mimicking your crosshair like a Pokeball, among many other custom and fun options.

Admittedly, it’s fun to tinker and try out these crosshairs, especially on the fly with a crosshair generator. We just don’t see the value in adding outer lines when the focus is on sighting enemies fast.

Movement and firing errors

You have the option of adding movement and firing errors for both inner and outer lines. Since we aren’t recommending using outer lines, we’ll focus on just inner lines. All of the players we reviewed played with movement error off. Only one of the players we track turned the firing error on.

These error settings could potentially be beneficial to beginner players, but even their value in those situations isn’t compelling. We detail below the best Valorant crosshair for beginners if you’re needing some assistance as you improve in the game.

Crosshairs used by the best players

We track the crosshair settings for many of Valorant’s most popular players, including Shroud, ScreaM, Tarik, and TenZ. These full crosshair settings for all Valorant players we track can be found by visiting our Valorant pro settings page. You’ll find there a breakdown of each player’s crosshairs, plus links to their comprehensive Valorant settings, including keybinds, sensitivities, and more.

Best dot crosshair in Valorant

Players wanting to add a dot may be best utilizing the below Valorant dot crosshair settings.

  • Color: Cyan
  • Dot: On
  • Center dot opacity: 1
  • Center dot thickness: 2
  • Outlines: On
  • Outline opacity: 0.5
  • Outline thickness: 1
  • Inner lines: On
  • Inner line opacity: 1
  • Inner line length: 4
  • Inner line thickness: 2
  • Inner line offset: 6
  • Outer lines: Off
  • Crosshair code: 0;P;c;5;d;1;f;0;s;0;0l;4;0o;6;0a;1;0f;0;1b;0

This crosshair closely mirrors our suggested Valorant crosshair detailed in prior sections on this page, but makes a few important adjustments.

Firstly, we want to make the center dot as visible as possible without increasing its thickness too much and then obscuring targets. A center dot opacity of 1 and a center dot thickness of 2 help achieve this outcome.

It’s important to also adjust the inner lines to accommodate the added dot. Adjust the inner line offset to 6 to add some separation between the dot and the beginning of the inner line so the lines and dot don’t bleed together.

Best Valorant crosshair for beginners

Beginners jumping into Valorant for their first few times can benefit from choosing the right crosshair settings to help aim and deal with recoil. Here is the best crosshair in Valorant for beginners.

  • Color: Cyan
  • Dot: Off
  • Outlines: On
  • Outlines opacity: 0.50
  • Outlines thickness: 1
  • Inner lines: On
  • Inner line opacity: 1
  • Inner line length: 4
  • Inner line thickness: 2
  • Inner line offset: 3
  • Outer lines: Off
  • Movement and firing errors: All off
  • Copy spectated player crosshair: On
  • Fade crosshair with firing error: On
  • Crosshair code: 0;P;c;5;0l;4;0a;1;0f;0;1b;0

You’ll notice that this crosshair mirrors our overall best Valorant crosshair settings. The main differences are turning on copy spectated player crosshair and enabling fade crosshair with firing error.

Turning on the ability to copy a spectated player’s crosshair can be helpful when you find one you want to copy. Try out their crosshair to see if it’s a better fit so you can customize over time what works best for you, then turn off the setting once you’ve found a crosshair that suits you.

Fade crosshair with firing error will fade the top half of your crosshair as recoil sets in and drives your sights off target. The fading action can be a helpful visual signal that it’s time to stop spraying bullets and wasting ammo as the gun’s recoil takes over.

How to copy spectated Valorant crosshairs

Valorant developers added the ability to copy a spectated player crosshair in patch 5.04. When spectating a player during a match, simply type either “/crosshair copy” or “/cc”. This will import the spectated player’s settings as a new crosshair profile.

Methodology

We analyzed the crosshair settings for 17 Valorant pros and streamers as of September 2022.

The players included in our sample set were Aceu, Asuna, Benjyfishy, Brax, Bugha, Dapr, Eryctriceps, Hiko, n0ted, s0m, ScreaM, ShahZaM, Shroud, Sinatraa, Steel, TenZ, and Tarik.

We considered that most Valorant players adjust their crosshair settings frequently. Our methodology uses a point-in-time approach and we recognize that some players may be using different crosshairs over time.

That said, our methodology and suggested settings still hold unless Valorant developers meaningfully alter the way crosshairs work. If this occurs, we will be making appropriate updates to this page.
