What Is a Crosshair in Valorant?

In Valorant, a crosshair is the sight used to aim with a weapon. It is a vital component of every game in the first person shooter genre. The crosshair indicator features four cross lines precisely opposing each other, and the central point is where all four cross lines meet – the point at which an enemy must be shot to be killed. Apart from basic functions, the crosshair is easily customizable to suit any player’s preferences. Players can copy crosshairs of professional Valorant players as part of their individual tactics.

Why Do Players Want to Copy Crosshair in Valorant?

Players want to copy the crosshair in Valorant for uniformity and convenience from player to player. Crosshairs are a personal preference, and beginners often make mistakes by using the wrong ones beyond their skill level according to pro liquid`ScreaM. Copying a crosshair from another player who has a similar skill level or playing style will yield benefits. Easily present without any fuss, courtesy of the legally coded custom crosshair copy/paste settings in the game. According to the FuryGG gaming website…

How to Copy Crosshair in Valorant?

The simplest and most foolproof way to copy a crosshair in Valorant is to write down the values found in the crosshair’s settings or remember the initials of a well-known gamer whose crosshair you would like to copy. Then, assign those same values to your crosshair. Alter settings as necessary depending on your preferences. Let us expand on and illustrate these methods.

The Crosshair Editor in Settings provides a customized crosshair and feedback to Axael while copying Ninja’s crosshair and adjusting its brightness and size. To make the process of crosshair customization easier we have developed the Ultimate Valorant Crosshair Generator. It provides a visual representation of your customized crosshair and as well as a textual display of parameters. This makes the process easier for those players who wish to manually enter their customized settings into the game.

There are several examples of crosshairs utilized by professional players which are well-known by two or more letters. Leading in the pack are TSM members who all have simple one-letter names. We add one more by providing an excellent crosshair by setting up a crosshair that maximizes visibility while providing easy manual assistance for Seni which is very easy to call out when playing for EVPM as he therefore does the most talking.

Step 1: Open the Settings Menu

To copy a crosshair in Valorant, start by opening the Settings menu. To do this in the PC version of Valorant, press Escape on your keyboard or click the gear icon in the top right of the screen. The main settings menu will appear.

There are four subsections: CONTROLS, VIDEO, GENERAL, and CROSSHAIR. The crosshair customization tool appears in CROSSHAIR, which is selected by default when you open settings. This is where you can choose the various elements to adjust to modify your crosshair (shape, color, opacity); they will be in the sections to the right. Now on the bottom left side, find the CROSSHAIR PRESETS section just above basic and you’ll find options to adjust the settings. You can choose to adjust things like inner line opacity to make it invisible or adjust KERESZT MÉRET Y/X.

Step 2: Go to the ‘Crosshair’ Tab

Once the Settings Panel is open, go to the Crosshair tab. There will be a few options at the top of the settings panel. Click on the one labeled Crosshair. You should see a screen similar to the one in this picture with all available settings to create your desired crosshair. Copy the style of another players’ crosshair settings by matching all the same attributes or change particular attributes of the crosshair style as you like.

Step 3: Select the Crosshair You Want to Copy

Go to Options → Crosshair and look at the Crosshair Config type and size of the crosshair you like to copy the numbers and settings. Screen space scale / GAP / Thickness / dot / outline / center dot / inner lines / outer lines / transparent / center gap / outline opacity are some of the options you can set in these configurations. In the case of Shroud, his setting is

  1. Try out different combinations and styles according to step 3.
  2. 0.215
  3. Left-arrow 3 on Keyboard
  4. 1
  5. Off
  6. Off
  7. 0.5 / 4 /…style 3
  8. Cross style
  9. No
  10. 1
  11. Not applicable
  12. 0

And remember light color crosshairs with low outlines are good for dark backgrounds, and heavy outlines with dark colors are good for bright backgrounds.

Crosshair to get the closest setting that Shroud uses. Make sure that any changes to the settings are identical to those that you noted previously, or they will not be considered copied.

VALORANT CROSSHAIR SETTING NEED TO BE EXACT: Small changes in any of the crosshair setting can have large differences on the screen and in gameplay. So make sure to be as exact as possible. Even copying Shroud’s crosshair setting may not provide the intended effect due to different monitors or settings. So make changes and test before finalizing.

If you do not successfully copy a crosshair or do not like the feel of a copied crosshair after playing then go back and try a different settings for each of the crosshair styles.

PSYCH‘s Valorant bots are a good way to test out a new crosshair as they assist in memorization / tracking / clicking / flicking. During the beta in 2020, Psych offered Valorant crosshair settings freely. But now after being commissioned from custom organizations there is a fee required.

Sparky Aim Trainer, styprs, and kovaak’s Aim Trainer are a few other aim trainers to practice on if you don’t have access to Psych’s.

Shrouds crosshair configuration after changing from green to white in 2021 but they are still the same (2022) are …

  1. Shroud
  2. Crosshair Style: 1

  9. Outer Lines: 4
  10. Outline Opacity: 0

ScreaM’s crosshair setting to copy ScreaM’s crosshair (adilbenrlitom’s) in VALORANT, you would want to use the following settings:

  1. ScreaM (adilbenrlitom)
  2. Crosshair Style: 1

  9. Outer Lines 0
  10. Outline Opacity: 0

And finally copying TenZ’s crosshair setting in VALORANT, which has fourteen additional settings to stand out, with slightly different green values compared to Shroud. Tenz’s crosshair configuration would look like this:

  1. TenZ
  2. Crosshair Style: 1
  3. Screen Space: 0.244
  4. Thickness: 1
  5. Color: 0 / 146 / 80 / 255 / 255 / 255

  8. Inner Lines: 6 / 1.9 / 2 / 1
  9. Outer Lines: 0
  10. Outline Opacity: 0
  11. Center Dot Opacity: 0
  12. Center Gap: 1 – This has to be guessed as the VALORANT crosshair settings only go as low as 2

Remember these settings are what the pros use. Even minor differences like color opacity and crosshair style may have large effects.

Find the settings that are comfortable for you and keeps you as accurate as possible.

VALORANT CROSSHAIR TIP: Making your inner lines smaller increases accuracy in close range or accuracy intensive areas while making them larger improves tracking accuracy.

Well-known players like Shroud, ScreaM, Hiko, TenZ and Wardell have refined their settings through experience and finding what they are most comfortable with. You need to do the same for the best results during your gaming solution.

Play around with different combinations on your own and cross-reference them with your favorite YouTuber.

Shroud’s former C9 teammate Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham and fellow retired C9 player, Robin “Relyks” Sadlerr have YouTube channels which may serve as a good starting point for understanding and customizing your crosshair for Valorant. Relyks has videos specifically discussing why certain pros choose a specific crosshair placement (such as why they draw instead of flick-shot).

VALORANT CROSSHAIR PLACEMENT plays a role in determining the effectiveness of your sensitivity settings. Starting out by copying a well-known player is a good way to find best results and then customize it according to your hand and sensitivity needs.

PRO TIP FOR VALORANT CROSSHAIR COPY PASTE: Zoom in on a screenshot to be sure you are matching crosshair settings exactly.

DOs and DON’Ts of copying a crosshair from a content creator in VALORANT:

DO: Find a similar crosshair pattern if you don’t like the one you are copying, especially with a similar style.

DO: Remake the settings if you like the playstyle but not the actual crosshair.

DO: Use the same weapon you practiced on a practice map.

DON’T: Copy the whole playstyle settings of the pro. If players find that their aim is not optimized on their current sensitivity settings then it is best NOT to copy pro settings.

DON’T: Stick to the same settings even if they are not working for you.

DON’T: Try all the crosshair settings in a single game to see which better suits you. It will affect your gameplay.

DON’T: Change the whole layout settings including keybindings if the copied crosshair does not work for you.

DON’T: Use all the optional components for crosshair. Use any 1 or more if it works.

DON’T: JUST watch best players’ streams to do it. Play along with them to understand the settings and their benefits.

DON’T: Use crosshairs from players using large screens if you are using half the screen of a laptop.

DON’T: Choose a crosshair from pro players using keyboards with soft-touch or mechanical settings if you are uncomfortable with that type.

PSYCH stream channels will go live on Twitch and YouTube with their basic and risky settings for the first time. After that, their Routines, Aim Trainers (such as Aimbeast), and Custom Game Modes can focus on those settings. A Routine allows players to gain experience using the copied settings they noted without external influences. Players should deepen their understanding of crosshair patterns, aim, and predictions using Aim Trainers.

Double-click on the tile area (button 06) to access AGILITY. Here you choose the speed you want to play at and you can test the settings.

Change the Sensitivity (button 04) to Uniform to keep things constant. Make sure you’re the only one playing on a server (button 08).

For modes, MEDIA (button 05) can give you options for your favorite tunes. Make sure the gaming mode is always on to enhance your experience to the max.

Enthusiasts can expand their crosshair copying experience by adjusting additional gameplay settings (mouse, key mapping layout) to get the top advantages.

All changes you make need getting used to them. So make sure to be exact with each individual setting or you are going to notice throughout the course of your game, match after match, your crosshair, your sensitivity’s not will keep you exact and you will thereby miss your optimal sensitivity for individual images.

Once you have chosen a crosshair you like the best, you can use the developer’s console to manually set your settings. Simply type the following command (replacing the default values with your chosen settings).

Color setting in Hex format: cl_crosshaircolor 2 – Default value: 5

Color setting in RGB format: cl_crosshaircolor_r 50 (R value) cl_crosshaircolor_g 250 (G value) cl_crosshaircolor_b 50 (B value)

Outline mode: cl_crosshair_drawoutline 1 – Default: 0

Choose which gap you want with a console command.

Thicker crosshair: Cl_crosshairgap -X and +X It controls the size of the gap of the crosshair from the center to the outer points. You can choose a higher negative value and a higher positive number to make the crosshair thicker. Negative numbers move the lines to the middle while positive numbers spread the lines apart cl_crosshairgap -2 and cl_crosshairgap 2.

Inner space gap: cl_crosshair_inner Gap increases/decreases the distance of the crosshair lines to the center of the crosshair. A lower number moves the lines inward and feelg more condensed, while a higher number makes them spread out and feel more spaced – cl_crosshair_innergap 0.8 and cl_crosshair_innergap 2.

Outer space gap: Higher cl_crosshair_outer has the same affect on cl_crosshair_inner. It controls the spreading of lines outward. – cl_crosshair_innergap 1 and cl_crosshair_innergap 4.

Hiko crosshair settings used in 2021 are …

  • Crosshair Style: 4
  • Screen Space: 0.80
  • Thickness: 2
  • Step 4: Take a Screenshot of the Crosshair Settings

    Take a screenshot of the crosshair settings after you have typed them in. This way you have a back-up of the settings in case the game crashes or something else unexpected happens.

    Use Snapa on Windows and Mac, or Lightshot on Windows and Mac to take a screenshot. Lightshot, for example, lets you use your mouse to select the area you want to screenshot, automatically uploads the image to their servers, and gives you a web link you can share.

    Snapa is a step short of that. Use the Print Screen button or Cmd + shift + 3 keys to screenshot on your keyboard. Make sure you do this as soon as you have finished selecting your crosshair settings. Finally, set up a document, whether it is a public or private note on Google Drive, Lightshot, or saved on your desktop to ensure you do not lose your screenshot.

    Step 5: Create a New Custom Crosshair

    After you have your copied crosshair settings in the game, create a new crosshair setting by adding the crosshair settings to the New crosshair tab. You can change the color and Thickness of the crosshair by clicking on the active tab to choose the new tab. Once your custom crosshair is built, it will automatically save it in the system, allowing you to switch back to the custom crosshair or the original donated crosshair if you like at any point in the future.

    Do note that to access the customization menu you will first need a custom settings as a base. The existing Crosshair Base needs to be saved as a file on the computer (C:Program Files (x86)Riot VanguardRiot ClientServicesvalorant.exe). There is no known way to copy the default crosshairs over to the custom settings menu or to a new crosshair that doesn’t have the same graphic settings.

    Step 6: Input the Crosshair Settings from the Screenshot

    After your screenshot is taken, open the operating system’s file manager where screenshots are stored. This is usually named after the operating system itself (Finder on Mac, File Explorer on Windows, etc.). Under screenshots, there will be a folder named Valorant which contains your crosshair screenshot. It is possible that the screenshot files are stored in a browser which maintains its own separate storage.

    Once you have located the crosshair screenshot, open the Valorant game and go to the Crosshair & Performance menu, as indicated in step 1. There you can now take information from the screenshot and manually alter your settings to approximate the crosshair from the screenshot.

    Step 7: Save the New Custom Crosshair

    Save the new custom crosshair in the F2 in-game settings under crosshair settings. The F2 menu has the option to save your changes as a new preset (plus icon) or save over the current crosshair preset (tick icon). You can create custom crosshairs for specific operators or scenarios.

    What Are the Benefits of Copying Crosshair in Valorant?

    The benefits of copying crosshair settings in Valorant are saving time and relying on the knowledge of professional players and streamers in order to find the settings that work best for you. While copying pros is a start, each player will need to tweak settings to find what they are most comfortable and accurate with.

    Time-saving. One of the main benefits of copying crosshairs is that negligible time is spent mentally generating and testing new settings for a generic handgun, rifle, and sniper setup. Even users who tweak each number will find that it is a lot faster to begin by copying the settings given by professional players.

    Professionals know best. The true benefit of copying crosshair settings is to leverage the time and experience professional players and experienced Valorant streamers have already put in. They have made many mistakes to learn from to reach the settings they have today. There is no need to make all the same mistakes again, players just need to choose the best appropriate preset, then adjust the colors, intangibles, and experience with these settings. But if you do not copy expecting similar results, you won’t be as disappointed with your progress.

    Consistency in Aiming

    Getting consistent mouse and crosshair placement during aim duels is a performance element that you can improve by including exercise in your training routine. Doing 180 or 90-degree turns and adjusting for the right location for your crosshair development with bots raised to high aims is particularly successful.

    Cross-training is a training method used in sports that involves participating in several different sports or different types of exercise. According to video game specialists, these physical cross-training equivalents to virtual gaming cross-training can help improve your gaming performance as well.

    Personalized Crosshair for Better Gameplay

    If you want to have more improvements in your game, find your personalized crosshair on pro player githubs. A red colored operator crosshair utilized by MoubICU and uyRok (the latter developed it for them and uploaded it) is a good option. MoubICU reports that elevated contrast fades were necessary to make it visible but I don’t like the appearance, so the regular fades I used to use are back.

    If you use the Laptop Cable Crosshair it will hang heavily as displayed on screen, giving you a stronger feeling of the weapon’s presence. Pick whichever you like. In the past we spotted a re-calibration spike from Meddo of VP (#172 in our NotEW Crosshair Cache). 0.196 is the only line thickness for each weapon that he uses.

    Are There Any Risks in Copying Crosshair in Valorant?

    There are no risks of adverse effects when copying crosshairs in Valorant. A player’s crosshair style is chosen based on personal preference and habits, so if they are not benefiting from it, changing to a different crosshair may help them. The worst that could happen is a player trying a new crosshair style and disliking it.

    Copying a crosshair in Valorant is a process of trial and error and it is entirely permissible to change the copied crosshair later on.

    There are no legal risks associated with copying crosshairs in Valorant beyond potential long-term eye strain and player underperformance. Reckless diving into others’ preferences may lengthen the journey towards finding the right crosshair which can be found only through exploration of individual preferences. But these risks are minor so players can save time and start off by copying a crosshair and then refining it further later on to make it their own.

    Possibility of Inaccurate Crosshair Settings

    The likelihood that something is wrong with your crosshair settings to the extent that it is worth copying someone else’s is quite low. However, if you feel that your aim is just not working out as you had hoped it would, take both an active and reflective approach to your practice, training, and in actual games to understand if the potential for inaccurate crosshair settings is worth the time and effort of copying someone else’s.

    Risk of Getting Banned by Riot Games

    There is a theory with minimal evidence that players can get banned for copying crosshairs since a major VCT event’s pause was caused by an imprecise copy + paste to his settings. Provalone, a former esports coach, claimed that one of his players was banned for using a program to exactly replicate another player’s crosshair settings.

    Riot has no official policy regarding copying another player’s crosshair. But they do have policies against changes to the game’s program, which can be interpreted to include tools that copy other player’s settings or entering crosshair and weapon skins settings to their config file by hand. Some fans have called for Riot to show crosshairs of player’s choices in tournament matches instead of player perspectives to avoid accusations of impropriety.

    At best, getting caught at the casino copying someone’s settings could mean lost time and embarrassment. At worst, there is a remote possibility of getting banned. Yet the gaming industry has seen no reported precedent of players being banned for swapping settings with other players (outside of a 24-hour VAC ban following a game update bug according to VPEsports). In the current absence of a clear ban pattern, such fears should be more of a deterrent than a legitimate issue.


    To copy crosshair settings in Valorant, simply screen-shot and make sure you have the same settings for Crosshair Center Dot, Center Gap, Center Thickness, Center Dot Opacity, Edge Offset, Edge Rotation, Firing Error, Firing Crouching, Firing Moving, and Firing Standing 1. Then assign the same colors to the appropriate parts of the crosshair.

    If the other in-game settings need to be changed for a crosshair to have the same proportions and shape, adjust all of these first before going back to tweak the color.

    To sum up the steps to copy a crosshair in Valorant, start with a crosshair generator and experiment in-game once you’ve made some modifications to get a feel for the crosshair’s behavior. Then adjust further to fine-tune—to get the right shape and settings for your ideal user philosophy—and finally to find the best crosshair color settings.

    Copying your opponent’s crosshair settings is a different approach for finding your own ideal crosshair—the exact settings that work in the same way as a Pro or high player. From the main menu, click on your profile picture, then go to the enemy player’s profile. Then go to the career menu and choose comps or deathmatch with the person and select “copy rival agent details.” The crosshair is part of these astral details. Upon copying, the selected player will then have the same crosshair style.
