With Patch 5.04, VALORANT added a custom Crosshair color option, allowing players to make their Crosshair any color they want. Previously VALORANT only had 7 Crosshair color options: White, Green, Yellow Green, Green Yellow, Yellow, Cyan, Pink, Red.

While these options are great and give you plenty of choices for your Crosshair customization, having more color options for your Crosshair does not hurt. VALORANT added a Hex code (6-digit RGB) option with the new custom Crosshair color update. changing the values with the right combinations for specific colors will change your Crosshair to that particular color.

For instance, if you want to change your Crosshair color to Red, instead of choosing the color Red from the given Crosshair Color options, you can choose Custom and type #FF0000 and hit enter. After that, VALORANT will change your crosshair color to Red, accompanied by the #FF0000 Hex code.

Best Custom Crosshair Colors for VALORANT

Using Hex code, you can basically create over 16 million color combinations. However, you don’t need to use so many combinations as they will not provide you with extra benefits. Also, you can only save up to 15 Crosshair Profiles at once. So, creating a bunch of Crosshairs with random colors will only do more harm than good.

In any case, we will now list the more common Crosshair Colors in VALORANT, accompanied by their Hex codes:
