Apart from good game strategy or in-detailed knowledge about heroes/maps, one of the most vital criteria to excel in a tactical FPS game like Overwatch 2 is to have a good crosshair that helps you translate your true aiming potential onto the screen. While the default crosshairs for each hero are great, to begin with, it is always advisable to customize and select a crosshair manually. To change your crosshair in Overwatch 2, visit the Reticle section under the Controls tab.

What are the different Reticle types in Overwatch 2?

There are five types of reticles in Overwatch 2.

  • Default: If you choose this type, all the Heroes will display their native default crosshairs.
  • Crosshairs: The traditional FPS crosshair with both inner and outer lines.
