With the introduction of crosshair saving and other new features to the Valorant crosshair creator in Patch 3.03, players are experimenting often with many new styles of crosshair, whether that be circle, square, or simply a dot. The dot crosshair is a very common type of aiming tool in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive that has now made its way over to Valorant, with many players deciding to use the small but precise crosshair.

Dot Crosshair Valorant: How to Create

The dot crosshair is quite an easy one to create. To get started, a player needs to enter their settings tab. From here, they will need to first select the color of their choosing. After that, they can create the dot crosshair by using the following settings:

  • Outlines: On
  • Outline Opacity: 1
  • Outline Thickness: 1
  • Center Dot: On
  • Center Dot Opacity: 1
  • Center Dot Thickness: 3
  • Fade Crosshair with Firing Error: On
  • Inner Line Opacity, Length, Thickness, Offset: 0
  • Movement Error: Off
  • Firing Error: On
  • Outer Line Opacity, Length, Thickness, Offset: 0
  • Movement Error: On
  • Firing Error: On

Using these settings will result in a dot crosshair with outlines. The resolution a player uses will impact how big the dot appears, and may require some changes to thickness. The minimal look provides players with more screen space to search for enemies, and if it makes one more comfortable, it's likely the crosshair with which they'll perform best.
