Tarik’s Pro Crosshair Settings

Tarik ValorantWhen you are shooting opponents with Valorant weapons, it is important to have a good crosshair to help your aim to be as accurate as possible. Tarik and many other pros prefer to use a small dot for their crosshair, as this takes up less space on their screen and enables them to see the opponents more easily. This will help them to get one-tap headshots more often. Some players however feel that using a dot can make it harder to see the crosshair, and also more difficult to control recoil.

Tarik uses a white crosshair with an outline as this is seen to have the most clarity, making it easy to focus and see what you are aiming at. White is the most common colour for crosshairs amongst Valorant pros for this exact reason.

  • Color: White
  • Outlines: On
  • Outline Opacity: 1
  • Outline Thickness: 1
  • Center Dot: On
  • Center Dot Opacity: 1
  • Center Dot Thickness: 2
  • Show Inner Lines: Off
  • Movement Error: Off
  • Firing Error: Off
  • Show Outer Lines: Off

Tarik’s Pro Mouse Settings

Another thing that Valorant players need in order for them to be playing to the best of their ability is to be comfortable with their mouse settings and sensitivity. Whilst it is advised to find the mouse sensitivity and settings that feel most comfortable for you, it is a good idea to take a look at the sensitivities of other pros to give you a baseline and so that you can compare yourself to them.

We have found Tarik’s pro settings for if you want to try them for yourself. You should keep in mind that Tarik uses quite a high sensitivity, as the average eDPI for pros is around 280.

  • Zoom Sensitivity: 1
  • Hz: 1000

The mouse Tarik uses is the VAXEE ZYGEN NP-01, which is a great option for players who prefer to use light gaming mice. Its feet glide very smoothly, and the paracord-like cable is very flexible.

Tarik’s Pro Keybind Settings

Tarik’s Valorant key bindings are actually almost the same as default, which is similar to most Valorant pros settings. The only difference from the default settings is that he has changed the order of the “Use/Equip Ability” keybinds, but they are still set to the same 3 keys, C/Q/E.

Some Valorant pros choose to move their “Use/Equip Ability” keybinds to a mouse button so that it is easier to keep moving whilst using their abilities, however, Tarik chooses not to do this as he feels comfortable with his own settings.

Another difference with Tarik’s pro settings is that some Valorant players have set their jump keybind to Mouse Wheel Down/Up, as this makes it easier to perform advanced movements like the Bunny Hop.

  • Walk: L-Shift
  • Crouch: L-Ctrl
  • Jump: Space Bar
  • Use Object: F
  • Equip Primary Weapon: 1
  • Equip Secondary Weapon: 2
  • Equip Melee Weapon: 3

Tarik’s Pro Map Settings

One feature of the UI which is very useful to you as a player is the minimap. It is especially useful for streamers, as they can’t guarantee that their teammates will give good communication, or the streamer might be distracted by another part of their stream (for example, twitch chat) and are not focused on communicating with their team. The minimap will allow them to see what is happening around them or on the other side of the map just by looking at the mini-map.

  • Rotate: Rotate
  • Fixed Orientation: Based On Side
  • Keep Player Centered: On
  • Minimap Size: 1.1
  • Minimap Zoom: 0.797
  • Minimap Vision Cones: On
  • Show Map Region Names: Always

Tarik’s Pro Video Settings

The one difference with Tarik’s video settings compared to most other pros is that he uses a 16:10 aspect ratio, with a resolution of 1680×1050. The main reason players use a stretched resolution in games is to make the opponent’s hitboxes larger, and also for better PC performance if they need it. However, playing on a stretched resolution in Valorant does not make much of a difference to the opponent’s hitboxes and therefore it provides no competitive advantage. Because of this, most pros play on the standard 16:9 aspect ratio.
