How to add custom color to your VALORANT crosshair

Now crosshairs can be any color imaginable.

Riot Games has added the ability for players to customize the color of their crosshairs in a recent update. This customization allows players to choose colors outside of the primary ones that shipped with VALORANT on day one.

Before the recent update, VALORANT players were forced to choose between specific crosshair colors. These colors were white, green, yellow-green, green-yellow, yellow, cyan, pink, and red with no way of brightening or dimming the colors.

The added customization option will allow players to choose different colors than what was previously allowed as well as the brightness of them. Fans have been waiting for more color options since VALORANT came out, since its major rival Counter-Strike 2 allowed players more freedom with crosshairs.

Tip:

If you’re changing your crosshair colors, you might also want to consider changing your enemy highlight color by going into the ‘Accessibility’ section of your settings. The last thing you want is to have your crosshair color blend in with your enemies.

Now, however, you can use any hexadecimal number to customize your crosshair color by doing the following:

  1. Open the VALORANT ‘Settings’
  2. Move to the ‘Crosshair’ section
  3. You’ll have two tabs to choose from, but you’ll want to select the ‘Primary’ tab
    • Here, you’ll be able to change the shape and color of your crosshair
  4. On the dropdown menu next to ‘Crosshair Color’, select the custom option.
  5. Enter your preferred hexadecimal code.

Hexidecimal colors can be found anywhere on the internet and allow players to choose how light or dark the color will be. This code is six characters long and follows an RGB format.

If a code entered is not a hexadecimal code, it will revert to the previous color.
