Today we’re going to be breaking down everything you need to know about How To Choose Best Crosshair For Valorant In 2021 to make sure that you can have every edge you possibly can in game.
Tons of pro’s use different crosshairs, but a lot of them also use the same crosshair, and it’s for an important reason.
For the most part the crosshair you use is up to you, it really comes down to personal preference, however most of the crosshairs the pro’s use tend to be fairly similar, and there are a few reasons for that that we’ll get into today.
- Remember, your crosshair is supposed to be a tool used to help you aim better, that is why it’s important to have it tuned personally towards your needs.
- And if you’re a player who is still looking at improving their mechanics, we have some really awesome crosshairs just for you later in this article, so be sure to stick with us as we get into it.
Before we do though, let’s introduce our question of the day, which is naturally “What crosshair are you using in Valorant right now?”
I’ll talk a bit about which one I’m using at the end of the video, but of course you guys aren’t here to hear MY crosshair settings, so let’s get into the article.

Best Crosshair For Valorant In 2021
What Is The Best Crosshair Color In Valorant ?
As mentioned before, it is largely preference for a lot of these settings, and that is going to be no different for your Crosshair color.
You can realistically run any color that you want, but it’s important to choose something that you can easily pick out on your screen.
There have been a few pros that I’ve heard who change their crosshair depending on the map, but for the most part it’s incredibly apparent that White is the preferred crosshair color, followed by Cyan and Green.
Out of the 23 different players I looked at, 11 of them used White Crosshairs, 5 of them used Green, 5 of them used Cyan, and the other 2 used Yellow and Red.
You may be thinking “King, why white, isn’t it hard to see on some maps?” to which you’d be sort of correct.
On some maps, having a white crosshair can be difficult to see, namely on Split there is a lot of white in the background so you may lose track of your crosshair at the beginning,
but honestly after a bit of time playing the game this becomes a lot less common. The more you play the game, the more you develop a sense of where your crosshair is on your screen, and it becomes a bit more difficult to lose track of it.
The game really becomes less about looking at your crosshair, and more about looking at your target, and using your muscle memory to land your shots instead.
However, with that being said many pros who run a white crosshair, also use outlines at the same time, making it so even on backgrounds where the white blends in, the black outlines make it stand out more.
If you decide to use a crosshair that can be difficult to see at times, I highly suggest using an outline to make it just a little bit easier on you.
This is likely part of the reason white is so common, since white and black are complete opposites, on parts of the map the white blends in, the black should definitely stand out.
One thing I really want to mention as well, is you may have noticed I haven’t given you any specific crosshair settings yet, and don’tworry we will give you a bunch of specific pro’s settings at the end of the video.
however I really want to encourage you to experiment with your own crosshair, and find things that feel comfortable to you.
Just because your favorite pro uses a crosshair, doesn’t mean it’ll be most comfortable to you.
That’s why I took the time to compile what is common among most pro’s, so that you can make the best judgements based on yourself.
The Most Common Pro Crosshair In Valorant
Anyway though, moving on to the most common crosshair you’ll generally see among pro’s, and this actually comes in 2 Variations.
- The first one is the 1/4/2/2 crosshair.
For players who don’t know, the numbers here are going to refer to the inner lines, Opacity, Length, Thickness, and Offset, in that order, unless otherwise specified.
Sometimes pro’s will mess around with the outerlines, but for the most part every single professional player in Valorant uses a static crosshair, with no firing error, no movement error, and most of them do not use a Center Dot.
This means that those 4 numbers are most of the time all you need to be able to copy a players crosshair, which is really nice for convenience when switching between your favorite crosshairs.
- This particular 1/4/2/2 Crosshair is used by players like TenZ, Nukkye, BabyBay, and Corey, as well as many others, and Ironically it’s also the same crosshair I use as well.
- It’s an incredibly standard crosshair, not too small, and not too big.
- The color used depends on player, but as a rule of thumb I suggest you stick to the three colors I mentioned earlier, Green, Cyan, or White.
- Lastly the pro’s who use this Crosshair generally don’t use outlines, but once again if you’re having trouble keeping track of your crosshair maybe it’s something you want to try.
However, if you’re someone who feels like this 1/4/2/2 crosshair isn’t quite right, that is okay, because there are many players who use a slightly different variation, where instead of having their offset at 2, they raise it to 3.
This will leave a little bit more of a space in the center of your crosshair, making it easier for you to spot your target.
- some pro’s prefer it this way namely Spyder and Mixwell use this crosshair.
- Something I want to emphasize though is that most professional’s in Valorant have their crosshair very similar to this 1/4/2/2, even if they deviate from it a bit.
- For example, a player like Ethan, use a 1/4/2/4 Crosshair, where as a player like Hazed prefers 1/3/2/2.
- Notice how both of these crosshairs are very similar to the standard 1/4/2/2, but provide a slight difference, and when something comes down to personal preference like this, that little bit of difference can really matter.
The Holy Dot Crosshair In Valorant
Moving onto a different style of crosshair, that I recommend that most players at least try, is the Dot crosshair.
- This crosshair is incredibly nice for those players who really love the one taps, and is most notably used by players such as ScreaM and Patitek.
- Generally when using a dot Crosshair, players use outlines just because since it’s so small it can be hard to see at times,
- and from their you can either go with just your standard center dot, or you can increase it’s thickness to 2, which will make it a bit easier to spot out.
This is definitely a different style of crosshair, and it won’t be for everyone, however it is something that works pretty well for many players.
If you’re a player who hasn’t learned to control their recoil the best yet, this may not be a great crosshair for you for the obvious reason that it can be difficult to tell where your sprays are going, but for more experienced players, this may be something you want to use.
- If you are a player who struggles with sprays however, an excellent crosshair you can use is Is taking whichever crosshair you like the most, and set that to your inner lines.
- Then what you’ll want to do is go down to the outer lines, and set this to 1/2/2/40
- Make sure you have the Firing and Movement error set to off, and now whenever you spray, you’ll notice it will cap out at the top of your outerlines.
You can use this as a guide, so when you spray now rather than aiming with the center of your crosshair, aim with the top line instead.
This way you can get a better understanding of how far you need to pull down when committing to a spray.
I suggest you practice this technique for a bit in the practice range, on the flying bots outside to get a better understanding, but this can be a great training wheels technique for newer players.
Similarly, if you want to practice your counterstrafing, you can do the same thing, and turn on the movement error for your outerlines.
This will make it so your inner lines stay static, but your outerlines will still move when you are moving.
This is really nice for just getting the timing down when counter strafing, but I’m pretty sure many players already know this technique so I will move on.
Popular Pro Crosshairs In Valorant
For all of the players who are looking for specific Pro Crosshairs, I’m going to list a few of the outliers with footage of what they look like, and if you want to pick and choose your favorite form the article, feel free to do so.
Keep in mind, many pro’s do change their crosshair from time to time, so this may not be 100% consistent with what they are currently using, or could be using in the future.
I got all of this info from Prosettings.net, so if you guys want to look up your favorite player as well, I recommend doing so there.
Anyway, here is Shroud VALORANT Settings–
Obviously I could go down the list just naming every single crosshair, but hopefully that gives you a bit of variety and selection when looking for your perfect crosshair.
When it comes down to it, as I mentioned before, crosshair is all personal preference, but I hope this gave you a good idea of what the pro’s use so you can make a better decision when selecting your crosshair.
I think the weirdest looking one mentioned on this list is Aproto’s, but I really wanted to include it because I actually used it for awhile and it didn’t feel bad at all.
If you guys are looking for the biggest advantage, play around with them for a bit and figure out which one you like the best.
I for one after exploring some of the different players, am going to be trying out Ethan’s for a bit.
Generally when I turned on outlines in the past I either had it set to 1, or 0, but turning the outlines down to .5 actually does make a subtle, but nice difference, which is cool.
Anyway though, let me know what crosshair you’re rocking in the comments below, As always, I’m Vishal Solanki, and we here at Solanki Gaming want to thank you all for watching.
We’ll catch you, in the next one.
