How to Aim Better in Valorant

Like in most tactical shooters your success in Valorant is measured by your ability to take down the enemy, this makes having a good aim essential if you want to increase your win rate. Although the various characters have abilities they can use in various situations the vast majority of your time in the game will will be spent aiming your crosshair at enemies and pressing left click to either successfully or unsuccessfully eliminate them. Check out our How to Aim Better guide to find out what you can do to improve in this area of your game.

Upgrade your Mouse
One way in which gamers can instantly improve their aiming is to invest in a gaming mouse which will allow you to tinker with your sensitivity or DPI settings to find the perfect cursor sensitivity for you. A gaming mouse will have sensors that are far superior to those found with the mouse that you get bundled with your PC when you buy it. Having mouse strokes that translate accuratly to in-game movements without any faults will help you significantly. You should also pick up a gaming mouse pad to compliment your gaming mouse, these are not expensive and it will guarantee your mouse swipes will be at their optimal accuracy. A large mouse mat is better than a small one as it will offer more room for every mouse gesture.

Customise your Crosshair
It is advised that you customise the default crosshair you given in Valorant with one that you feel happy with and more importantly fits your playstyle. You will find that there are plenty of settings you can play around with to tweak your scope, these include the colour, size, thickness, and opacity. You can always test your crosshair out in the training area.

Crosshair Placement
It is crucial that you place your crosshair so your weapon is always in a position that will allow you to target the enemy as quickly as possible. This means holding your crosshair at a certain height on screen, and preemptively positioning it as much as possible. Glide it across a corner as you move around, or place it in such a way that when you round the corner it will already by pointing at a popular sniping spot in the distance.

Aim Training Exercises
A good way to hone your crosshair accuracy is to spend time in the training area where continually paracticing your aiming will build up your muscle memmory. The training area in Valorant offers a variety of different modes all designed to improve your aspects of aiming. It is here where you will be able to practice moving, stopping, then shooting. Rounding a corner and snapping to a target. Or targeting bots that spawn in one by one and give you a moving enemy. All techniques that will pay dividends when you find yourself in an actual game.
