In a game like Fortnite with so much cosmetic customization, one crucial part of a gun doesn’t change.
Even games that don’t give players a lot of freedom to change their character have given options for customizable crosshairs.
The crosshair is the central point of a player’s focus during a game and it would be awesome to be able to have different options to experiment with.
Call of Duty, CS
While those games are all first person which makes the crosshair a more constant and important part of the game, Fortnite’s third person view would still benefit from the option.
There really isn’t a downside. People who prefer the default will just continue to use that and people who want to experiment with other options will have the ability to do so.
This was a conversation started by Darfoz11 on /r/FortniteCompetitive but didn’t receive a ton of responses.
The comparison to CS
Personally, I prefer a circle crosshair and wonder how much better my aim would be in Fortnite if I had one.
For all the different cosmetics Fortnite is constantly adding to the game, this doesn’t feel like it would pose a significant issue. Hopefully we see this coming soon.
Would you change your crosshair if you had the option to? What design would you choose?
