The Reticle

The recticle is one of the useful tools for many FPS's because it gives you an idea on where to shoot when hipfireing and align your shots for aiming down the sights or ADS for short. there are so many different types of recticles that we will only discuss the most common recticules. In some games, they allow you to customise the recticle to make your own recticle in order to help you have a personal rectile that improves your accuracy the most known one is called the crosshair. imagaine a plus signs, some variations may have opend the center of it to give it an open feel and concentration point to use. However, there are some games that don't allow you to customize your recticle, some may even give you bizzare recticles for you to use.

below are some examples of some crosshairs you would see in game

The crosshair Reticle

The average reticle you will see in most FPS's:a plus sign

The crosshair recticle is the most used and most known out of all reticles. due to its simple design and great versitility.

The circle reticle

the average shotgun reticle: a circle

since shotguns usually dont shoot a single projectile they genereally use pellets as damage that spreads away the farther they go. So giving a shotgun the crosshar reticle would make the hip fire inaccurate to where the projectiles will go. The cirle is a better reprentaiton on how the pellets will go and spread.
