As of Valorant patch 5.04, the game now allows you to add a custom color to your crosshair. Here’s a detailed guide on how you can set a custom crosshair color in Valorant.

Episode 5 Act 2 went live in August 2022 and brought the usual new content like the Battle Pass, Champions 2022 Bundle, and a Competitive reset, which are enough for players to grind for.

Although no new agents were introduced with the Act, one addition that caught players’ attention was the ability to customize crosshairs more. You can now freshen up your crosshair with a custom color or even copy another player’s while spectating them.

If you are wondering how to add a custom color to your crosshair in Valorant, our handy guide has everything you need to know.

How to change crosshair color in Valorant

Adding a custom touch to your crosshair in Valorant is quite easy. All you need to do is head to the Settings and set the color accordingly.

However, if you’re unaware of the process, here’s a simple set of steps that you can follow:

  1. Boot up your game.
  2. Once the game loads, click on the gear icon on the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Then select the Settings open.
  4. Click on the Crosshair tab.
  5. Then head over to the Primary tab.
  6. Click on the Crosshair Color drop-down menu and select the “Custom” option.
  7. Here, you have to enter a Hexadecimal code/number of the color you want to use.
  8. Go to any website and choose your desired color.
  9. Now, copy the Hexadecimal code of the color and paste it inside the game.

As it is already evident from the name, a Hexadecimal code is a combination of letters and numbers forming a six-digit code. The colors formed from these codes follow an RGB format.
