The new season of Overwatch 2 is here, and with it comes a new way to change your crosshair to a heart. It's been added just in time for Valentine's Day, but you can use it at any time!

This guide will show you how to get the heart crosshair in Overwatch 2 using the game's settings. It's a pretty simple process, so just scroll down to find out how to do it.

Getting the heart crosshair is pretty simple. Overwatch 2 has a feature that allows you to change your crosshair in the game's settings.

To change your crosshair to the heart crosshair, follow the steps below:

  • Launch the game
  • Head to Options, then General
  • Scroll down to the Reticle settings
  • Under Advanced, change Dot Type to Heart

Now when you load into your next match you should see a Heart on your crosshair rather than a simple dot.

You can even change the crosshair's colour to pink if you want to! There are lots of options for customising your reticle, which I've detailed below.

What other crosshair settings can you change?

Under the Advanced tab in the Reticle options, you can change a variety of other settings. For examp,e you can change the colour of your crosshair or adjust how big it appears on your screen. Here are all the options:

  • Colour
  • Thickness
  • Opacity
  • Outline Opacity
  • Dot Type
  • Dot Size
  • Dot Opacity
  • Scale with Resolution

That's a pretty wide range of options available, so you should be able to fully customise your crosshair. I'm partial to a standard crosshair, but you can go pretty wild with it.
