VALORANT circle crosshairs are some of the cleanest and best to use. They help improve your tapping, which is essential in games like VALORANT. Soon you’ll be the king of Vandals, leaving the Phantom sitting in the back of your mind, where it belongs.

Crosshairs are an element that doesn’t follow the one-size-fits-all mantra that some features use. Feel free to mix and match your crosshair to see what works for you. I love the circle crosshair below, it’s simple and solid.

Experimenting with your crosshairs will help with various aspects of your shooting. You’ll be able to change your crosshair to help determine the spread of sprays, assist with tapping and burst fire, and to even mess around. The VALORANT world is your oyster.

Best circle crosshairs and settings in VALORANT

The easiest way to create a circle crosshair in VALORANT is with a crosshair code. If you’re looking to change the color on these codes, change the number in front of the “c”. Changing the number from one to five will change the color.

Here are some codes for easy green circle crosshairs:

Filled in dot crosshair

This particular crosshair is small and simple. Once you’re over that opponent’s head, you won’t be able to see their face looking back at you. That’s when you go for your shot.

  • 0;P;c;1;h;0;d;1;z;3;f;0;0t;3;0l;1;0o;1;0a;1;0f;0;1t;0;1l;0;1o;0;1a;0;1f;0.

Open circle crosshair

The open circle allows you to get the perfect spot on the opponent’s head. It won’t block out their face, which some players prefer. Once that ring is around their head, that’s when you take the shot.

  • 0;P;c;1;h;0;f;0;0t;4;0l;1;0v;1;0g;1;0o;2;0a;1;0f;0;1t;0;1l;0;1o;0;1a;0;1f;0

Large circle crosshair

The larger crosshair is for senior gamers like myself. The older you get, the worse your eyes become. To compete with all those younger aimers who can tap heads like no tomorrow, you might need a bigger crosshair to compete.

  • 0;P;c;1;o;0;d;1;z;6;0t;8;0l;1;0o;0;0a;1;0f;0;1b;0

Just copy and paste the code in the settings to unlock the crosshair. If you want to fine-tune your crosshair from scratch, however, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the crosshair settings in the menu
  2. Reset your current crosshair to default (there is a reset button in the top right of the screen, which reverts your crosshair to the original settings)
  3. Select any color you want, but make sure to turn the outlines off
  4. Scroll down to the Inner Lines settings and turn the Show Inner Lines option on.

To create a circle crosshair in VALORANT, use the following inner line settings:

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

If done correctly, your crosshair will now be a small open circle that is perfect for players who aren’t fans of the traditional crosshair style. If you want a solid circle, turn the Center Dot option on and adjust the Center Dot Thickness as needed. 

Be careful when adjusting the settings though. They can ruin the circle and create odd crosshairs that are more distracting than helpful. You can also reset the crosshair again if you feel like the circle crosshair isn’t for you. It’s possible to have multiple crosshair profiles in VALORANT, so feel free to dedicate one to a circle crosshair if you want to switch between options.

Tip:

Maybe you like using a circle crosshair with some weapons and characters, but you don’t want to be using it all the time. In VALORANT, you’re actually able to save 15 different and customized crosshair profiles that you can switch between whenever you like.
