Like many FPS games out there, there comes a time when you’ll feel like changing your crosshair to give yourself a better aim when standard crosshair just isn’t working for you. There are different modifications you can do in the game but in this article, we’ll be showing you how to change your Crosshair in Overwatch 2.

How to Change Crosshair in Overwatch 2

Changing your crosshair in Overwatch 2 is a piece of cake. What you need to do is head to the game’s settings and enter the options. We advise doing this when you aren’t already in a match or when you’re idle in the lobby.


Once you’re in the settings, head to the game’s Control tab and go to General. From there you can modify your crosshair under the Recticle settings. The basic option you have is to simply change the recticle’s shape. However, it’s entirely up to you if you decide to go deeper into the settings.

If you do choose to play around with the settings by going deeper, some of the things you’ll be able to modify include accuracy, changing the crosshair colour, changing how thick the crosshair will look on your screen in a match, changing the gap within the gap, dot size, opacity, resolution scaling and many more.

These settings will make it easy for you to modify how you want your crosshair to appear in Overwatch 2, making it easier for you to enter a match and possibly win it.

Once you’ve made all your changes and hit the save button, all applied settings should be implemented in your next match. However, you might want to try testing out your new crosshair setting in a Training mission before entering a real matchup with other players.

There’s no limit to how often you can customise or modify your crosshair in Overwatch 2 and we hope this article has been helpful to you. Happy Gaming!
