Hunt Showdown Crosshair Not Centered – Can you fix it?

You won't like the answer.

If you picked up Hunt Showdown and are wondering about the off-centered crosshair, you're not alone. Unfortunately, you're not going to like the answer about whether it can be fixed or not.

Can you fix the Hunt Showdown crosshair?

The Hunt Showdown crosshair isn't directly in the center of your screen as a design choice. This means you aren't able to move it around, much to the anger of many longtime players. It comes in a bit lower on your screen, and it's something you'll just have to get used to if you plan on sticking with the game.

With many games, VALORANT as an example, give you the ability to change up your crosshair, it can be frustrating to not do it here. However, it's a choice made by the developers, and it doesn't look like they will change things up in the near future.

Why can't you center the crosshair in Hunt Showdown?

For a game to make such a drastic decision with something as vital as a crosshair, there must be some reasoning behind. In an interview with USA Today, Hunt Showdown's lead game designer Dennis Schwartz said it was a decision made early on.

"We made a very early decision in our process, and all of the animations in the game are based on that," he said. "It’s not in your way and you can focus more on the world. And since this is all about shooting at the right time, and not just like spray and pray, we always considered that the weapon can be at the lower position."

There aren't many games out there that would make a design decision like this, so it's at least interesting to see how it's explained. Moving the crosshair from the center of the screen does make visibility a bit easier, but we're sure many players would love the ability to get it centered. While that could be something the devs work on for the future, it doesn't sound like it's something you should get your hopes up for.
