With the decrease in popularity of both CS:GO and Overwatch in the past years, pro players and casual players alike were looking forward to the next big thing. It was released in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic when everyone was forced to stay home. As a result, Valorant became one of the biggest games of the year.

Valorant is Riot Games’ first free-to-play first-person shooter game. Before its release in June of 2020, Valorant was first teased under the codename Project A in late 2019. The limited-access beta period started in April 2020.

For FPS players who have tried out Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Overwatch, Valorant is popularly seen as a combination of both. The unique abilities of each Valorant agent have created an innovative and ever-changing environment for their players that keeps them on the edge of their gaming chairs.

Aiming on Valorant

With tactical shooters like Valorant, having a good aim is the difference between a decent player and a great player. Abilities are a major element in the game because they can change the momentum of a round. However, like most FPS games, the aim is still king.

No matter how careful you are with your movements in-game or how much you master your main agent’s abilities, the bad aim would of course make it harder for a player to rise to the higher ranks.

One of the best ways to improve aim, aside from practicing in the range every day, is to find a good crosshair that will help you shoot some heads consistently.

What is a Crosshair?

A crosshair is a marking in the middle of your screen that guides you where you are aiming.

Your crosshair should pop out against your screen, not be too distracting, and be small enough so you can still get headshots easily even if the enemies are far away. 

Valorant allows players to customize their crosshairs according to their heart’s desire, so here are a variety of crosshair settings that can help you get to the top of the leaderboard. You can use them as a basis and tweak them around to suit your taste and preference.

The settings menu is very easy to use, so enjoy trying out different crosshair settings for Valorant. But remember to save your settings for later in case you wanna go back to it.

You Might Ask (FAQs)

How should I choose my crosshair settings for Valorant?

You should take into account your comfortability with the crosshair considering your screen’s size and quality. In addition to that, also consider your room’s lighting because it may change your crosshair’s visibility.


What should I remember when creating my crosshair?

The crosshair’s color and the outline color of your enemies should also contrast with each other because you don’t want it to blend with an enemy’s body when aiming at them.

Valorant’s scene is constantly changing as new updates roll in, so don’t be afraid to make mistakes and tinker with your settings.
