One of the first things that any Overwatch 2 player will do upon first entering the game, aside from waiting in a queue, will be to adjust their settings.
A player’s settings are extremely important, as they can determine what kind of experience players have from match to match. Whether fans want to adjust their keybinds or controller settings or make sure they’re getting the most FPS possible in the video settings, players will need to spend some time tinkering. One of the most vital Overwatch 2 settings that a majority of players could spend quite a lot of time on is the crosshair.
In Overwatch 2, players can fully adjust their crosshair, similar to how they can in VALORANT or CS:GO. However, the settings to actually alter the crosshair are somewhat hidden and also strange at first glance. In this guide, we’ll be breaking down how to actually view your crosshair and the best values to use within the settings.
How to change the crosshair in Overwatch 2
In order to first view your crosshair’s settings, you need to go to the settings in Overwatch 2. This can be done from the main menu of the game. Here, scroll over to the Controls tab and then go all the way down until you reach the “Reticle” section. This is where you can adjust all of your crosshair’s settings, from thickness and length to opacity and size.
Best crosshair settings in Overwatch 2
Once you’re at the Reticle section of the Controls tab, you have the option of changing each individual setting’s value. Doing this will alter how your crosshair looks. While you can fiddle around with the settings yourself, here are the best values to use as a foundation for the crosshair in Overwatch 2.
- Type: Crosshairs
- Show Accuracy: On
- Colour: White
- Thickness: 1
- Crosshair Length: 10
- Center Gap: 25%
- Opacity: 100%
- Outline Opacity: 90%
- Dot Size: 4
- Dot Opacity: 100%
- Scale With Resolution: On
These values will make a very standard crosshair that is sure to work with any hero. Of course, you can adjust each value as you see fit. However, this is a great starting point and this particular crosshair can be used without any changes.
