Let’s look at a few of the major points you need to know in much detail below.
Use a Cyan Crosshair Color
If you beginner then the first setting you need to change is the color of your crosshair. The main aim here is to keep a contract color from the map and enemies around you. You can start by trying the Cyan color, which is very hard to find in almost all the maps in Valorant. If you planning to pick green, white or other colors instead, then make sure to use the help of a world wheel to find the opposing color.
Change Enemy Color to Yellow
The same logic of crosshair color applies to enemy outlines. Even though the default color is red, you should make it yellow to highlight them more easily. And as Cyan is pretty much the opposite on the color wheel, they both make a good contract combination. This should in theory help you spot and sim on your enemies much easier than before.
Enable Advanced Options
This is important in setting up your first steps towards in a better crosshair. No matter what level you are, check out for yourself, all the various benefits you can unlock from this one option.
Enable Show Spectated Player’s Crosshair
This will let you check out what crosshairs other players on your level are using currently. And during the spectator mode, you can determine if their crosshair style will be useful to you, depending on their gameplay.
Use Fade Crosshair With Firing Error
Enabling “Fade Crosshair With Firing Error” will let you get better aim in the game right away. The idea is that as soon as the recoil of the gun you are using becomes bad, the top part of the crosshair fades. This is the sign that you need to stop spraying the bullets now and pause for a second. This will reset your recoil and let you aim & shoot better in the next burst of bullets. Test this out in the training area to get a feel about how this works for different weapons in the game.
