How to adjust your crosshair in Overwatch 2

The options are plentiful when it comes to crosshair settings. It might be a bit daunting at first, but tweaking the settings and heading into the Practice Range will allow you to perfect the crosshair you want to use.

Here’s how to make those changes:

  • Open Overwatch 2
  • Select Menu in the bottom right corner or press the Esc key
  • Choose Options
  • Navigate to the Controls tab
  • Stay on the General menu of Controls
  • Scroll down to find the Reticle section
