How to Change Crosshair in Overwatch 2

To change your crosshair or reticle in Overwatch 2, all you need to do is go into the settings before hopping into a match. Move over to the Controls tab. Under the General subsection, scroll all the way down until you find the option called Reticle. There, under Advanced, you’ll find a very meaty menu for customizing your crosshair. There are many, many options you can play around with until you make your perfect reticle. They even let you create separate crosshairs for different heroes by using the Change Hero option in the tab after Controls. This is useful because different characters work better with different aiming “options.” That brings us to our next section.
