The most advanced, feature packed and optimised crosshair addon available for Garry's Mod!

*The crosshair in the icon image is a screenshot from one created with this addon*

Open the menu

  • !crosshair (chat)
  • !crosshairs (chat)
  • crosshairs (console)
  • +crosshairs (console)
  • -crosshairs (console)
  • Hold C and look for the crosshair icon

  • Hide HL2/default crosshair
  • Hide when aiming down sights (supports CW/FA:S/M9k(+Remastered)/TFA/ArcCW) + will attempt to hide with other packs
  • Draw lines/boxes or arrows pointing inwards or outwards
  • Draw a circle + adjust radius and segments
  • Change colour when aiming at a target (disabled in Prop Hunt and Guess Who)
  • Dynamic (accuracy feedback)
  • Hide in vehicle or spectating
  • Hide TTT crosshair non-permanently
  • Adjust the gap between the lines
  • Line thickness
  • Stretch lines
  • 10 save slots!
  • Copy crosshair to keyboard and load from string!
  • Centre to player angles - makes the crosshair work in thirdperson!
  • Crosshair outline and the ability to set the colour for the outline
  • Rotate the crosshair!
  • Draw lines or polys for extra performance
  • Calculation cache to improve performance
  • Invert the crosshair colour against the background for higher contrast!
  • Force the inverted colour to black or white for even higher contrast!
  • Default/HL2 crosshair debug - when toggling the HL2 crosshair button, it will provide instructions on how to find out if there is a conflicting addon hiding the crosshair

Reporting Bugs
If the crosshair is not visible then please run the below command in console:
If the above doesn't help, then I will need further information. So please run these and send me the outputs so I can more easily assist.

There is a SteamID check within the code, just for me. This can be blocked `CrosshairDesigner_AllowAuthorDebug 0` in the server's console. The default is enabled. These debug commands were allowed for any user before, but I was concerned that these could be used maliciously. Now they only work for super admins, singleplayer and me (when AllowAuthorDebug is enabled).


Please follow these guidelines:
- You may edit it as much as you want for yourself and your server if you have one. The only condition is that you don't then upload your edited version to the workshop. If anything is broken or anything like that then let me know and I'll be happy to update it!

No, although we tried that and it has the same affect.

@chibill is the addon extracted server side?

Having an issue after the feb 19th update to where players would freeze joining the server unless they subscribed to the addon on steam (we used resource.AddWorkshop) had to removing the addon. No idea why it was causing it, but on join if they were not subscribed they would freeze and their game would be non-responsive shortly after lua start.

@zakarybk hi there! Game is installed on a hard drive, I have one standard page of addons, nothing much, mostly props and tools for building. Thank you for your hard work!

@ichiharathe13 Please let me know if the latest update has fixed the freezing for you :)

@ichiharathe13 Just wondering if you have the game installed on an SSD or hard drive, and if you have a lot of addons? Thanks

@ichiharathe13 thanks for the feedback - I'll look into slowing down the initial load addon indexing this weekend.
