Starting with update 4.05, players can now share or import crosshairs using 20-digit codes.
The new feature is built into the Settings menu and players can now also save crosshair profiles after importing settings.
To get a crosshair you want, you can look up your favorite streamers' socials or ask your friends to share their codes.

Finding the right crosshair in Valorant can be tricky. Unlike a lot of other first-person shooters, Valorant offers a very extensive set of options to help you tweak your crosshair. Riot Games has simplified the crosshair creation process by adding an import and export option for crosshair settings. The next time you see a crosshair in your favorite content creator or pro player’s stream, you no longer have to manually copy all of the settings. Starting with update 4.05, players can import or export crosshairs in Valorant with ease.

How to make the perfect crosshair in Valorant

Crosshairs in games play a role in how accurate you are. While not all players need the perfect crosshair for perfect aim, having the right crosshair can help your shots' accuracy a lot. They play a crucial role, especially when you are constantly moving and are trying to readjust your shots.

Understanding movement error and firing error is important if you want to see how they affect your accuracy when shooting. You can toggle both settings in the shooting range and see how they affect the crosshair visuals. If you leave both settings on, you will notice that the lines on your crosshair react to you moving or firing your weapon, making your crosshair bigger.

The settings are useful for newer players who are not used to FPS (First Person Shooter) games. Still, if you are a veteran or have a decent grasp of how to correct your aim when shooting any weapon in Valorant, you can safely turn these settings off unless you really like having them on. It reduces visual clutter, and you rely on your muscle memory more to adjust your shots. With update 4.05, you can now import and export crosshairs which makes for trying out new crosshairs a lot more convenient.
