The best VALORANT crosshair settings

Here are some crosshairs to help your ranked play

Out of all the possible configurations, here are the best VALORANT crosshair settings you can get in-game. While the default crosshair settings can prove useful, some others made by pro players and ranked veterans might prove useful for you in the future.

Essentially, crosshairs are designed to show where your shots go — but bad ones can block your vision or even hurt your aim. Good crosshairs not only show where your shots go but don’t take up too much of the screen, don’t blend in with the maps and don’t distract you from your play.

But, in the end, this is subjective. Players will play better with different profiles. If these aren’t the best for you, try experimenting with crosshairs online or in the practice range.

How to import crosshair settings into VALORANT

First off, here is how to import crosshair settings into VALORANT. There are two ways to import codes: either copying a crosshair profile code or editing every aspect of it to match the crosshair you want. For the sake of this post, the crosshair profile code will be the only one included.

To import a crosshair profile code, open VALORANT and go to your settings from the top right. Then, go to the Crosshair tab and it’ll show you your current crosshair profile. To add a new profile, click the name to drop down all the profiles, and click the Create New Profile slot. Then, after that, press the Import Profile Code button, the third from the left. Simply cut and paste a crosshair profile code into that slot, name the profile and there’s your new crosshair.

You can have up to 15 crosshair profiles in VALORANT, so you can experiment with a lot in-game. To swap in-game, just go to your settings in-game, go to the Crosshair tab and switch profiles.

To start, let’s go with crosshair profiles made from the best of the best.

TenZ’s crosshair remains a staple

One of the most popular and talented VALORANT players currently, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo, has one that plenty of players in ranked use. Due to a mix of a blue reticle to stand out, small spacing to not distract, and a yellow dot for snipers, it’s simple but in the best way.

nAts’ crosshair profile one of the smallest available

For players who want something even more compact than TenZ’s crosshair profile, we have current Team Liquid player Ayaz “nAts” Akhmetshin. After his success on Gambit Esports, he’s made his ranks as a player with a top-tier aim, running a very small green crosshair. Especially for ranged shots, this crosshair could prove very useful for players after some experience with it is developed.

Tarik rounds out the best crosshair profiles

Last but not least, popular streamer and former CS:GO veteran Tarik “tarik” Celik has one of the hardest crosshairs for new FPS players to learn, but a good one nonetheless. A simple white dot — nothing more, nothing less.

In comparison to the classic crosshairs that most players use, this dot can lead to very accurate shots, especially the first out of whatever gun you use. Spray control might be more of a challenge, but it remains useful in the right hands.
