With good practice, you will be able to control your aim and recoil of your gun leading you to easier wins. A good crosshair is one that works for you and you may not be comfortable with the default one. Here’s how to get a custom crosshair in Fortnite and find out if it’s bannable and if there’s a workaround.

If you don’t prefer to use the default crosshair that Fortnite gives you, this is how to change its look, shape, size and color to make a custom crosshair for yourself. Note that this is applicable only for PC players because it requires you to use a third party overlay. This falls under the third-party use with Fortnite and there is a chance your account may get banned for its use. So try this at your own risk, but if you want to know the safer workaround, we’ve mentioned that further ahead in the article.

  • Launch the Microsoft store by searching for it from the start menu of your PC.

Can you Get Banned for Using a Custom Crosshair?

When you download a third party software to get an in-game benefit, there’s a risk of getting banned either temporarily or permanently. So, do this at your own risk because Fortnite’s anti-cheat software is pretty good at catching such software. If you have a gaming monitor, though, there’s another method you can try which can be used without a third party software.
