How to get a circle crosshair in Valorant? 

Circle crosshair was previously considered to be a “troll” crosshair by serious Valorant players. However, it became pretty popular in the community after various Valorant professional players and streamers, including Shroud, gave it a roll and liked it. 

Press escape and go to crosshair settings. Reset your current settings to default, this will remove all complex changes you’ve made in the past. After this, scroll down and find outlines options. Switch off the outlines and move down to adjust the inner lines of the crosshair. It’s essential to turn the inner lines on to get the circle design.

Here are the settings to apply.

These are all the numbers you need to achieve the perfect circle.

  • Inner Line Opacity – 1
  • Inner Line Length – 1
  • Inner Line Thickness – 3
  • Inner Line Offset – 1

This crosshair can be customized further based on your personal preference. For a solid circle, turn on the center dot and increase the size to the fullest. For a hollow one, keep the center dot off. Most players prefer the hollow one for better visibility. 

As for the color, you can pick any depending on the map. It’s recommended to go for cyan, and it stands out on most maps. However, you may want to switch to a darker one when playing Icebox, as cyan often blends into the stark background. You can change color from top options of crosshair settings before moving on to more complex stuff.
