CROSSHAIRS. I have been so absorbed playing the game
for the past year, I haven't even thought about the crosshair, and how it
might be lacking for some. But others in the player
community have been busy creating alternatives.
So if you want to get rid of the crosshair (without losing the other ID
icons), wish it were just a little smaller, or want a new design and new
color - HERE
The crosshair. A simple idea. Two lines
overlapping in an X or a cross shape, a dot, a circle or just about anything that marks a
target or the center of the screen. You would think that a few designs would suffice
for everyone. But the over 500 crosshairs and sets of hairs at this site created by
various players around the world say that even a slight design change might help someone's
aim. And in the world of first person shooters with players of different
connection speeds and system capabilities battling it out, a quarter of a second in
response time can make the difference between getting a frag or being one.
There are those who
play with no crosshair at all, but for those who do, variations in shape, size, and color
can make a real difference. People's eyes and brains react in different ways to different
images. Add to that the various resolutions and gaming environments, and you have a
need for more choices. And of course if you like to play the sniper, it's
almost a necessity.
No matter how cool a design
looks on these pages, you won't know for sure how well it will work for you until you play
with it. And I don't mean in single player. Get into an online deathmatch to test it
out under some real pressure. Does it ever block your view? Do you lose sight
of it in the heat of battle? They are all small files and quick downloads, so try as
