If you are new to the game then it is best you use your new crosshair for All Heroes. Once you start getting a grasp of the game you can try experimenting with various crosshairs for different heroes.


While there is no perfect crosshair, if you are coming from games like Valorant or CS: GO, then you should use Crosshair or a Dot as your Reticle. But this is just my recommendation you should still try out the different reticles to see which works for you.
