In order to change your crosshair in Overwatch 2, you need to go to ‘Options’ and open up the ‘Controls’ tab. In there, you should see an entire section dedicated to ‘Reticle’ under the ‘General’ category. This is where you will be able to customize your crosshair according to your preferences. There are 5 different types of crosshairs that you can choose from i.e., Default, Circle, Crosshairs, Circle/Crosshairs, and Dot.
Aside from these 5 types of crosshairs, you can also tweak a bunch of different options which include the following:
- Accuracy Toggle
- Crosshair Length
- Center Gap
- Outline Opacity
- Dot Size
- Dot Opacity
- Resolution Scaling
We highly recommend playing around with these settings a bit to see which crosshair feels natural to you. People usually default to dot as it allows for more precise aiming but remember that there are no wrong answers here. Everyone has got a preference and you should use what you feel comfortable with. You should also be able to find customized crosshairs for different pros, streamers, etc. out there if you want to replicate someone’s reticle.
Once you are done finalizing your personal crosshair, you should be able to use it for all the heroes in the game by default or have a different crosshair for different heroes in the game. But unless you are super competitive, this is not something I recommend since it involves a lot of work. But if you want to go the extra mile, feel free to do so.
