VALORANT is a game of skill and reflexes. While coordinating with your team and being a decent teammate will contribute a lot to your success in the game, more often than not, you’ll need to show that you can pull your weight by clutching in crucial moments.

If you’re looking to increase your rank in VALORANT, you’ll need to improve your aim and get familiar with the maps to make sure that you always have a plan throughout a match. While playing lots of matches will be key to developing a decent aim through muscle memory, you can also take your practice to bot lobbies and run drills.

Players who are looking to achieve the best results may also want to consider working on other aspects that can improve their aim. Using the best gaming mouse for VALORANT, having a comfortable gaming chair, and adjusting your crosshair in a way that you like will be important for having a stable aim.

Most professional players take the time to experiment in the VALORANT crosshair lab, but you can easily skip the experimenting process by taking a page out of their book. Apply a pro’s crosshair settings to your game and adjust it further if you notice any room for improvement. Even if a crosshair layout isn’t perfect for you in its original form, you can easily make it the best crosshair layout for you with a few adjustments.

Here are the crosshair settings that some professional VALORANT players use.
