Crosshair settings hold a lot of importance in an FPS tactical shooter game like Valorant.

The game has various opinions for crosshair customization, including color, borders, thickness, and opacity. This allows the players to customize their crosshairs. Customizing these settings improves the accuracy and overall gameplay experience. It increases the chances for the player to get easy headshot kills.

Crosshairs completely depend on one's personal preferences, and accordingly, they get the option to adjust in Valorant. The crosshair variation can range from a big cross to a dot, depending on the player.

Professional Valorant players have also got their own crosshair preferences. Many players like Spencer "Hiko" Martin, Tyson "TenZ" Ngo, Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar T1’s Braxton "brax" Pierce, and Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham are seen using a smaller crosshair in Valorant. One can have a small cross, or it can be a dot as well.
