Finding the perfect crosshair for you is one of the most important things in order to achieve your full potential in an FPS game. It's not seen as being as important as finding the Best Mouse for you, or a Great Headset that can help you hear enemies miles away. However, it's still very important and something you should not overlook.


On the internet, you can find many crosshair settings. You may find it challenging to determine which one is right for you. To help you solve that problem, we have created a list of the top five crosshairs to make your decision much easier.



How to find the perfect Crosshair in Valorant


Many factors go into making a good crosshair. One is size; it should be big enough that you can see it easily but not so large that it takes up too much of the screen. It is also important that the crosshair remains steady on the screen, no matter what happens. This means it needs to be static rather than moving around with the camera or with the player's character. Due to this a lot of people recommend turning off the Firing Error and Movement Error settings.


But how do you decide which one suits your needs the best? Well, let me help you with that decision. I have scoured through all of them and collected a concise list of the best crosshairs used by professional players.

What is a Crosshair and what is its purpose?


A crosshair is an essential tool in first-person shooter games. It serves as a marker to lead the player's sight and shots towards objects on the screen.


A good crosshair can improve aim and accuracy, while a bad one can result in missed shots and general difficulty aiming at targets even if they are directly in front of the player.



How many types of Crosshairs exist?


Just as you can see, there are many different options to choose from regarding what type of crosshair works best for you. Some gamers find it helpful to use different crosshairs depending on their game, while others stick with one standard default option for all their games.




While the circular crosshair is standard in most FPS games, it does not serve its purpose well in all cases. In a game such as VALORANT, players can change their crosshairs, so they get the option to choose from different pre-built shapes and designs. In this guide, we will help you choose the right settings for you.


These are the most common crosshair types:

  • Cross Crosshair

  • Dot Crosshair

  • Thin Crosshair

  • Circle with Dot

  • Standard with Dot

  • Tiny Crosshair


We provide the exact settings you need to enter to achieve these crosshairs at the end of the article.
