How to modify the crosshair settings in Overwatch 2

You will need to jump into your Overwatch 2 settings and go into the options. We recommend doing this while you are not playing a game, likely before a match or while idle in the lobby. When you reach the settings, make your way over to the Controls tab, and go to General. You will be able to modify your crosshair under the Reticle settings. The standard option you can make is to change the shape of the reticle. However, you can go even more in-depth with this information.
