In VALORANT, it's possible to customise your crosshair to your heart's content - and one of the more popular crosshair types is a simple dot.

There are plenty of benefits to using a dot crosshair in this game, which is why so many professional players tend to use them, like ScreaM. For starters, it's minimally invasive, unlike a typical 'plus' crosshair. This means you can line up your aim with an enemy's head without obscuring your view on either side of the player.

What's more, a dot crosshair just looks more clean and sleek in VALORANT, so your frag clips will look even more professional when you share them online. Keep reading to learn just how you can obtain a dot crosshair for yourself in VALORANT.

There are two main ways to get custom crosshairs in VALORANT: You can use a crosshair code, which will let you use the crosshair of someone else, or you can customise the settings yourself to make a unique crosshair.

Additionally, you can also use a crosshair code as a base before further customising it from there. However, as you're here to learn how to get a dot crosshair in VALORANT - which is one of the most effective reticules for winning gunfights - there are two main types of dot crosshairs: a square dot, and a round dot.

Below, you'll find crosshair codes for each, along with the individual settings for making them.

How to get the square dot crosshair

The code for a cyan square dot crosshair is: 0;P;c;5;o;1;d;1;z;4;0b;0;1b;0

  • Outline - On
  • Centre Dot - On
  • Show Inner Lines - Off
  • Show Outer Lines - Off
  • Outline Opacity - 0.5
  • Outline Thickness - 1
  • Centre Dot Opacity - 1
  • Centre Dot Thickness - 3

This will give you a standard dot crosshair with a slightly visible outline, but make sure to hop into practice to test it out and make any alterations you see fit.
