Highlights
Valorant Episode 5 Act II introduces a ton of quality-of-life features that allow you to customize your crosshair even further.
The new update has a ton of Champions themed content that you can grab for free from the battle pass and event pass.
There are no balance changes in the new update as Riot Games is unlikely to make any meta changes leading up to Valorant Champions.

Valorant Episode 5 Act II is finally here but along with all of the new content we also got a ton of changes to the game. One of the most requested features in the game has been custom crosshair colors and players can now use Hex Codes to choose any color that they want instead of being limited to the options the game used to offer. Crosshair codes also carry over all color settings which makes it convenient to use other people’s custom crosshair settings created by using the new system.

Crosshair Changes

Aside from the new content, the patch has quality of life improvements based on player feedback. Here is how you can set a custom crosshair color in Valorant:

  1. Go to Settings > Crosshair > Primary, Aim Down Sights, or Sniper Scope

  2. On the drop-down menu for Color, select Custom and input the Hex Code (6-digit RGB) value of desired color

  3. If a non-Hex code is entered, the crosshair will revert to the previous color.

If you want to use a color picker to find Hex codes for various colors, you can search for “HTML Hex Color Picker” or use HTML Color Codes to find something that you like.

  1. Head to: https://htmlcolorcodes.com/color-picker

  2. Choose a color that you want

  3. Check the Hex code at the top of the page

  4. Use the Hex code in-game to get the same color for your crosshair

Here is how you can tune horizontal and vertical crosshair lines

  1. Go to Settings > Crosshair > Primary or Aim Down Sights > Inner/Outer Length

  2. Disabling the middle “chain” icon enables independent tuning.

  3. Left slider is for the horizontal line and the right slider is for the vertical line.

The update also allows you to copy crosshair settings while spectating other players:

  • When spectating another player, type “/crosshair copy” or “/cc” to import the crosshair of the player you are spectating and it will be saved as a new crosshair profile.

To help players take advantage of these changes, the number of crosshairs has been increased from 10 to 15. It will allow players to store more crosshairs.

In addition to all of the above changes, there is also a fix for Yoru’s Gatecrash which would leave floor markers in incorrect locations in some cases.
