Valorant Pros Reveal How to Find Your Go-To Crosshair

Since launch, many in the Valorant community seem to have been searching for the answer to a simple but important question – which is the best crosshair?

For some odd reason, the crosshair you have in Valorant seems to really affect your aim compared to other competitive shooters.

At the start of Episode 5, Act II, this dilemma was perhaps made even more apparent thanks to the extensive crosshair customization and unlocking options Riot Games added to the game. The possibilities expanded enormously and players developed some eye-catching iterations.

DBLTAP spoke to several of the game’s top players from OpTic Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix and 100 Thieves during the Valorant Champions 2022 Group Stage to get their thoughts on one simple question: how did you find your aiming crosshair? Here’s what we found.

Starting off, 100T William “Will” Cheng admitted that even though he competes at the highest level worldwide, like most people, he’s still searching for the answer.

“That’s a tough question because I feel like I’m swapping the crosshairs,” Will told DBLTAP. “Anytime I just don’t feel it with a crosshair, I swap it out, so I mean, that’s how it is.”

When asked whether or not he would experiment with the recently added crosshair features, Will said he might be willing to give it a try.

“I’ve seen that you can do really weird stuff with it,” Will said, “like you can have blue glow and stuff. I’ve seen a lot of weird YouTube videos about it.”

From one 1-4-2-0 user to the next, OpTic Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen revealed the solution for him was simple – copy his teammate’s.

“I just copied my teammate, yay,” Marved said. “I really like his crosshairs. I had a few different crosshairs that I really liked. One of these was the one I used in Iceland when we won the LAN, but right now I really like Yay’s crosshairs. The 1-4-2-0 I believe. It’s small, fits the head perfectly. So yeah, I like that crosshair.”

Remarkably, throughout the tournament, Marved rocked the popular plus-shaped crosshair in both white and neon green, depending on the round, consistent with his response as to whether or not he would experiment with the new tools.

“I liked the new color features,” Marved said, “but I always ended up going back to the old one. I can try it. When I’m not playing that well, I like to change things up. I don’t really think it bothers me, so we’ll see.”

Of all, FPX Dmitry “SUYGETSU” Ilyushin was by far the most excited about the new customization options, even going so far as to tweet about the ability to use a wide crosshair at native resolution.

Overall, however, SUYGETSU decided to stick with his tried and tested two favorite options for the tournament.

“To be honest, I chose the crosshair between 1-2-1-2 with outlines and 1-3-2-2,” said SUYGETSU. “Sometimes I switch them according to my feelings. It depends.”

Post-Valorant Champions, expect SUYGETSU to change things up. However, he also revealed why players probably shouldn’t drastically change their crosshairs that often.

“Every time I want to switch crosshairs because I might have seen something somewhere [a] handsome crosshairs,” SUYGETSU said, “but you know, you should play a year [with it] probably. I want to play too [a] Point. But to play that point it will probably take a year to get used to that too.”
