VALORANT provides players with countless ways to customize their crosshairs, from shape and color to firing and movement error, the possibilities are nearly endless. Despite this, most crosshairs are either a simple dot or a variation of the standard four-line reticle.

If you’re tired of the same old common crosshairs and are looking for something fresh, a diamond crosshair could be precisely what you’re looking for. If you’d like to create the crosshair in VALORANT for yourself, here’s everything you need to know.

Diamond Crosshair VALORANT code

If you’d prefer to pop in a single line of code rather than input all of the settings shown above, you can enter the following code by doing the following:

  1. Go to ‘Settings’
  2. Click ‘Crosshair’
  3. In ‘General’, below the picture of your current crosshair, you’ll see a section labeled ‘Crosshair Profile’
  4. Click the button in that section with the arrow pointing down (the import button)
  5. A prompt will appear giving you the option to enter a crosshair code
  6. Input your desired crosshair code
  7. Click import (sometimes you have to click it twice)
  • Crosshair Code: 0;P;c;5;h;0;d;1;z;4;f;0;0t;4;0l;1;0v;1;0g;1;0o;2;0a;1;0f;0;1l;1;1v;1;1g;1;1o;3;1a;1;1m;0;1f;0
Tip:

If you find that the diamond crosshair just isn’t for you, you can always return your crosshair to its default settings. This option can be a bit tricky to spot though. You’ll find it sneakily tucked away into the artwork at the top of the game’s ‘Crosshair’ settings.
