Many crosshairs have been made in the VALORANT crosshair settings since the game’s beta. Some have hit the mainstream — like the waffle crosshair — and others have become more or less a meme. But, even with the different techniques and crosshairs to choose from, many players default to professional player’s crosshairs. While that may work for some, other may need to try out different aiming lines to find the right fit. Here are few unconventional VALORANT crosshairs that players should try out.

Waffle crosshair

This slightly popular VALORANT crosshair came into vogue because of professional use, but has seen less and less use over time. It is a decent crosshair for shotguns and light machine guns, but may lack the lines for accuracy on rifles. It can work for the long ranged weapons, but certain settings like firing and movement error may need to be turned off.

To create this crosshair use these settings for the inner and outer lines.

  • Inner Line Length: 4
  • Inner Line Thickness: 2
  • Inner Line Offset: 2
  • Outer Line Length: 1
  • Outer Line Thickness: 10
  • Outer Line Offset: 2

Circle crosshair

A pure circle crosshair without a center dot, this aiming reticle is also suited for guns that like to spray. But, making the circle tighter, and thus better for more precise weapons, is not all the difficult. Just change the inner and outer lines’ offset numbers. This crosshair pushes the limits of what the lines can be and makes for a unique experience in matches.

To create this crosshair use these settings for the inner and outer lines. Also set both line opacities to one.

  • Inner Line Length: 1
  • Inner Line Thickness: 8
  • Inner Line Offset: 4
  • Outer Line Length: 1
  • Outer Line Thickness: 2
  • Outer Line Offset: 5

Target crosshair

A different take on the conventional crosshair, this target reticle would not look out of place on a controller D-pad. The outer lines fade into the inner lines to create a smooth effect. The crosshair only works with movements and firing error off and the line opacities cranked up. Otherwise, whenever a gun is shot the crosshair will move and end the illusion. This is a general crosshair, good for any situation and gun fight.

To create this crosshair use these settings for the inner and outer lines.

  • Inner Line Length: 2
  • Inner Line Thickness: 2
  • Inner Line Offset: 3
  • Outer Line Length: 3
  • Outer Line Thickness: 4
  • Outer Line Offset: 5
