Valorant 5.04 patch notes

With update 5.04, players will get to spread their wings with the new crosshair customization that has come into play. From now on, you will be able to set a custom color for your crosshair and copy the crosshair of the player you’re spectating.

These crosshair changes will allow you to try different colors from the ones that are preset in the game already. The number of crosshair profiles has also increased, which means players will not have to swap their previous crosshairs for a new one.

The update includes a bug fix for Yoru as well. Here’s a rundown of everything included with the latest Valorant patch update.

Game System Updates

  • Added the ability to select a custom crosshair color.
    • Go to Settings >> Crosshair >> Primary, Aim Down Sights, or Sniper Scope
    • On the drop-down menu for color, select Custom and input the Hex Code (6-digit RGB) value of the desired color
    • If a non-Hex code is entered, the crosshair will revert to the previous color.
  • Added the ability to independently tune horizontal and vertical crosshair lines.
    • Go to Settings >> Crosshair >> Primary or Aim Down Sights >> Inner/Outer Length
    • Disabling the middle “chain” icon enables independent tuning.
    • Left slider is for the horizontal line and the right slider is for the vertical line.
  • Added the ability to copy spectating player’s crosshair settings
    • When spectating another player, type “/crosshair copy” or “/cc” to import the crosshair of the player you are spectating and save it as a new crosshair profile
  • Increased the number of crosshair profiles available from 10 to 15

Agent Updates and bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where Yoru’s Gatecrash would sometimes leave floor markers in incorrect locations
