In a competitive FPS game such as Valorant, optimising your setup is crucial if you want to scale the Valorant ranks. Things like picking the right agents on the right maps, properly calibrating your aim sensitivity, and finding the right Valorant crosshair setting for you will all make a huge difference when climbing.
However, sometimes it’s ok to trade optimal gameplay if it results in flexing on your opponents. For example, should you dome an enemy with the crosshair we’ll be showing you how to make in this guide, they’ll find themselves staring at a smiley face in the killcam – an extra layer of disrespect as this smug little crosshair bores into their soul.
The creation of the Valorant smiley face crosshair is possible thanks to the extra functionality added to the crosshair customisation panel in Valorant patch 3.03. Since then, players have been able to get creative with their sight of choice. This has resulted in everything from channelling the power of Christ, to something a little more… sus.
Here’s how to make your own smiley face crosshair in Valorant.
