Valorant Dot Crosshair: Types & Creation Guide

Players have wondered for too long on Dot Crosshair Valorant settings but have never been given clear instructions. Here are two types of dot

Every crosshair has its pros and cons. Some inflict more significant damage; others are made for the amateurs. The dot crosshair (in this case) is a perfect crosshair setting if you’re really a good aim in Valorant. You can land flashy headshot kills easily and impress your teammates or others in the room. Although, spraying with this crosshair doesn’t really work well. So, whenever you decide that it’s finally time for you to opt for it, then you better be ready for it.

Keep in mind, this Article is strictly related to Dot; therefore, if you want to check out Circle Crosshair, we have an entirely different guide for that.

Key Highlights

The dot crosshair suits players with precise aim but isn’t ideal for spraying. There are two types: round dot and square dot.

  1. ROUND DOT setup: Choose a color other than yellow or white, disable outlines and center dot. Adjust outer and inner line opacity and thickness, with inner line thickness, offset, and length set to 3, 0, and 2.
  2. SQUARE DOT setup: Disable outlines, set outline opacity to 0, turn off center dot, and set center dot opacity to 0 with thickness at 1. Adjust inner line opacity, length, offset, and thickness to 1, 0, and 4. Disable movement and firing errors. Outer lines settings should be set to 0 for opacity, thickness, offset, and length.

Types Of Dot Crosshair

There are two dot crosshair settings that you can use, the square dot crosshair and the round dot crosshair. There are different ways to make both of them. 

Round Dot Crosshair Setting

  1. Go to crosshair settings and choose a color that contrasts with the background, avoiding white or yellow.
  2. Turn on the “show inner lines and outliners” option.
  3. Turn off the “show outer lines” and “center dot” options.
  4. Set outline and inner line opacity to 1 (outline opacity can vary between 0.5-1 based on preference).
  5. Adjust inner line thickness to 3, offset to 0, and length to 2.

Note: The dot crosshair will initially appear square, but with adjustments, it will resemble a round dot crosshair.

Choosing The Perfect Crosshair Setting

Many people ask how pro players choose their crosshairs, and the simple answer is experimenting. Try different settings and settle for one that you are most comfortable with. Don’t try to imitate what your favorite player does; instead, go with the one that gets the best version out of you. The only way you’re going to succeed is if you choose the crosshair setting that you’re most comfortable with. Always remember, it’s all about skills and quick reflexes; if you manage to get better at them, then there’s no stopping you.

Colors You Could Choose

As mentioned before, we recommend you not to use White or Yellow. A small dot crosshair is easy to miss, and if you choose these two colors, it’ll be very hard. The two best colors we advise you to choose are Cyan and Green. They never blend in with the background, and that is precisely why they are the most popular.
