Improving your aim will be the No. 1 step to becoming a better VALORANT player, and the signs of improvement should start showing themselves in your rank. While you’ll mostly be focused on building up your muscle memory to improve your aim, having a crosshair that feels comfortable can also make it easier to land headshots.

A decent crosshair should be small but not too small. It should also be easily noticeable, and the smiley face crosshair is a fun alternative that’s the opposite of how a crosshair should be in VALORANT.

Here’s how you can get the smiley face crosshair in VALORANT.

How to make your crosshair a smiley face in VALORANT

Most players use this crosshair as a joke since it looks funny, and out-playing your opponents can feel even better with a smile on your screen. The crosshair editor in the game allows players to experiment with unique concepts.

Tip:

These crosshairs are purely for fun and entertainment and will not help you competitively within game or help climb in ranked play.

If you’re wondering what’s the best crosshair in VALORANT, however, you’ll need to dig deeper. Checking out the crosshair settings of professional players, like yay, can be an excellent start to getting familiar with what professional players value in their crosshairs. Pick your favorite players and check out their crosshairs on their streams or YouTube videos.

You can either try to recreate their crosshair settings or search for them, and once you start experimenting with their successful formulas, you can add a touch of your own by adjusting its size, color, or any aspect of them that you feel can be improved.
