The coolest unconventional VALORANT crosshairs

Even if you don't hit your shots, your teammates will still be in awe.

Choosing the right crosshair in VALORANT can be a love-at-first-sight affair for some and a never-ending battle for others. While most professionals use different variations of around three basic crosshair designs, you’ll see plenty more surprising choices while playing the game yourself.

If you’re looking to impress your duo or your teammates in a random lobby, switching to one of these cool and fun crosshairs will make their heads turn. With VALORANT’s new crosshair features continuing to roll out, you can easily copy another player’s crosshair code and then go make it your own. Or, you can pick one from our list of VALORANT crosshair codes.

All cool, fun, and cute VALORANT crosshair codes

You can add any crosshair to VALORANT by importing a code in the Crosshair section of the settings menu.

Below are descriptions and previews of the each of the VALORANT crosshairs listed above, as well as their crosshair codes. Keep in mind that many of the photos don’t do the crosshairs justice, given that several change while shooting, so it’s important that you try them out in the range before jumping into any serious matches.

Cool and fun VALORANT crosshairs

Chomping duck/nom-nom crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;0t;10;0l;0;0v;2;0g;1;0o;0;0e;0.168;1t;8;1l;10;1v;0;1g;1;1o;17;1a;1;1m;0;1f;0

This crosshair, also called the duck, chick, or “nom-nom” crosshair, features two eyes and a mouth that opens and closes with your firing accuracy. You can change the color of the mouth to yellow if you want, and then this crosshair will really resemble a baby bird!

Among Us crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;c;7;t;3;o;1;0t;4;0l;5;0o;0;0a;1;0f;0;1t;8;1l;3;1o;0;1a;1;1m;0;1f;0

The Among Us crosshair brings back fond (or infuriating) memories of a deep space adventure in a fun little crossover. If you want to troll a bit on your opponents, or perhaps Among Us is your other favorite game besides VALORANT, this crosshair might be the one for you. You can even customize the color of the visor on your crew member’s space suit in this crosshair!

Hashtag crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;h;0;f;0;0b;0;1t;9;1l;1;1o;1;1a;1;1m;0;1f;0

The hashtag crosshair is one of the more practical crosshairs on this list. The intersecting lines provide an easily identifiable space where your enemy’s head should fit perfectly. Though it might take a bit of getting used to, if you want a crosshair that is both unique and viable with practice, the hashtag might be for you.

Smiley crosshair

  • Code: 0;c;1;P;c;4;t;2;o;1;d;1;z;3;a;0;0t;10;0l;2;0o;2;0a;1;0f;0;1b;0

Let’s be honest, no serious player has ever used the smiley face crosshair hoping to get a 40 percent headshot percentage or win match MVP (unless they’re smurfing, of course). The smiley-face crosshair turns the boring lines on your screen into a fun face staring back at you in a perfectly imperfect, lopsided way.

X crosshair

  • Code: 0;c;1;P;c;4;h;0;d;1;0t;6;0l;1;0o;1;0a;1;0f;0;1b;0

Most crosshairs used by high-ranked players and professional VALORANT players are some variation of two intersecting lines, as the name “crosshair” implies. But what if you took the traditional crosshair and rotated it? This crosshair turns the cross into an “X,” and if you make it red, it looks like the button you click to exit out of a Google Chrome or Safari window.

Nerd glasses crosshair

  • Code: 0;s;1;P;c;8;t;2;o;1;d;1;b;1;a;0.462;f;0;0t;10;0l;14;0v;0;0g;1;0o;5;0a;0.308;0f;0;1t;1;1l;6;1v;0;1g;1;1o;18;1a;0;1m;0;1f;0;S;d;0

I don’t think you can call these nerd glasses a crosshair. They’re fun and unique, but you will actually feel like you have high myopia and no glasses while shooting with whatever gun you pick. This is a crosshair to use if you just want to show off to friends or record yourself getting unusual kills with a nonsensical crosshair. I couldn’t even stand playing in the shooting range with it, though.

Maximum power crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;t;3;o;1;d;1;z;6;a;0;m;1;0t;10;0l;20;0o;20;0a;0;0m;1;0s;3;0e;3;1t;10;1l;10;1o;40;1a;0;1s;3;1e;3

The maximum power crosshair is a big crosshair that becomes gigantic when you’re walking. Your goal with this crosshair is to hit any shot, really. The outer lines are so big and far from the center dot that if you have enough dedication, you can just focus on the center square to aim with it. Use the Odin for extra roleplaying points.

Cute VALORANT crosshairs

Big heart crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;c;7;o;0.1;d;1;z;1;a;0;m;1;0t;10;0l;5;0a;1;0f;0;1t;4;1l;10;1o;1;1a;1;1m;0;1f;0

This crosshair is ideal for Odin, Ares, and even Frenzy users. When you hold fire and spray your automatic weapon, the heart should show up. This is a cute alternative to another popular version of a heart crosshair that has been going around various VALORANT servers.

Flower crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;c;4;o;1;d;1;z;3;f;0;0t;1;0l;3;0a;1;0f;0;1t;9;1l;1;1o;2;1a;0;1m;0;1f;0

The flower crosshair, though still not the most practical option, is more useful than the smiley-face crosshair. The elements of this crosshair are all features seen in crosshairs used by high-ranked players and in pro play but taken to the extreme to create a fun little blossom. While this crosshair is technically viable for use in ranked, it still might feel a bit clunky and obstructive. Usually, smaller crosshairs are better for precise aim, but if you can’t get over the cute blooming flower, just train your aim and try it out!

Penguin crosshair

  • Code: 0;p;0;s;1;P;c;4;o;1;d;1;z;6;a;0;f;0;m;1;0t;10;0l;10;0v;0;0g;1;0o;17;0a;0;0f;0;1t;6;1l;0;1v;3;1g;1;1o;0;1a;1;1s;0.053;1e;0.206;A;c;4;o;0.585;d;1;z;6;a;0;m;1;0t;6;0l;0;0v;3;0g;1;0o;4;0a;1;0f;0;1t;3;1l;8;1v;0;1g;1;1o;18;1a;1

The Penguin crosshair takes my personal trophy of best VALORANT crosshairs ever. Besides looking like the eyes and the beak of a penguin, the beak actually opens while you shoot with your gun, making it the perfect effect for guns you love to spray and pray with, like Spectre and Odin. The penguin crosshair is a must-try.

Kitty crosshair

  • Code: 0;c;1;P;c;8;u;FC5A8DFF;h;0;d;1;b;1;z;3;f;0;m;1;0t;10;0l;0;0v;3;0g;1;0o;1;0a;1;0f;0;1t;9;1v;0;1g;1;1o;3;1a;1

The kitty crosshair is cute and tries to add a visual effect like the penguin one, but the feeling is not the same. When you shoot with it, the right and left edges of the crosshair move away from the center, what I can only interpret as the kitty getting angry or scared. If your VALORANT reflexes make you react whenever you hear any noise, just like a cat would, the kitty crosshair is for you.

Pokéball crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;c;7;o;1;d;1;f;0;0t;10;0l;5;0o;0;0a;1;0f;0;1t;6;1l;1;1o;5;1a;0;1m;0;1f;0

2 B a Master… VALORANT Master!
I will B usin’ a brand new crosshair!

If you recognize my adaptation of the Pokémon song “2.B.A. Master”, then this VALORANT crosshair is the one for you. I doubt The Pokémon Company and Riot Games will ever work together for a crossover between their games, but a fan forced it to happen by creating this Pokéball crosshair. It’s a cute and fun one but it has no special features apart from its looks.

Sunflower crosshair

  • Code: 0;P;c;5;o;1;0t;8;0l;3;0o;2;0a;0;0f;0;1l;3;1o;3;1a;0;1m;0;1f;0

The sunflower crosshair is my favorite of all flower crosshairs being shared around. It’s the one that best resembles a delicate flower, which is quite a contrasting element to have in a shooting game like VALORANT. The top of this crosshair fades out if your spray is long enough, which can actually be helpful when aiming for headshots.

No crosshair

If you want to go all out and test yourself, you might be interested in completely removing your crosshair. Your aim can be crosshair-free, only based on intuition, by clicking the Disable Crosshair option on the crosshair settings page. You can also change Circle Dot, Show Inner Lines, and Show Outer Lines to Off, or just import the code below:

  • Code: 0;P;h;0;0b;0;1b;0

Some players argue that taking away your crosshair shifts your focus from the middle of the screen and towards what is happening around you. While this may help increase your game awareness, you probably aren’t going to be hitting as many headshots.

Unlike in games like Overwatch 2, where players can still be successful on some characters without the best aim, in VALORANT, hitting headshots is everything. So while removing your crosshair for a bit might be fun practice, we wouldn’t recommend it long-term.

In all practical situations, playing with a crosshair is the best bet, but if you want to give it a go, try the no-crosshair challenge and see how well you do!
