Crosshairs for

Half-life

Changing The Crosshair

I have restructured the HL2 hairs to hopefully make this process more flexible. Now you can use any crosshair design in either single or multi play, and with or without brackets.

The command to enable the console is con_enable “1”. To bind it to a key add bind “`” “toggleconsole”, substituting whatever key you like in between the quotes.

Below you will see screen shots of each crosshair in it’s single player version with the “quick info” health and ammo brackets around it. Since Valve has added new weapons for multiplayer that aren’t in the single player game, there’s a different font file needed for MP. All the multiplayer hairs will not alter the static brackets around the crosshair. They will still be there. If you prefer to get rid of them, see the Brackets section below.

Beneath each pic are separate download links for single player and multiplayer. Each download is a ZIP file containing the font file with crosshair, and a text file with the installation instructions. They will not automatically install in the correct folder. You’ll need to indicate the path below in your unzipping program, which is explained in the included instructions.

For SINGLE PLAYER extract the files to the following folder: Steam\SteamApps\youraccountname\half-life2\hl2\resource

For MULTIPLAYER extract the files to the following folder: Steam\SteamApps\youraccountname\half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2mp/resource

For MODS, MAPS, TCs, etc., each should have it’s own resource folder. For example, for the Lost Coast level, it would be as follows: Steam\SteamApps\youraccountname\lostcoast\hl2\resource. Others will install in the SourceMods folder rather than in your account name folder. Extract the TTF file to the resource folder for each mod.

It is not necessary to save copies of the original font files. If you decide you don’t care for any of these crosshairs after playing with them for a while, just delete the files installed by the ZIP. The next time you start HL2, the game will regenerate the original font file with the original crosshair. This also holds true for the bracket files below.

Dealing With The Brackets

SINGLE PLAYER: If you have no use for the Quick Info feature, you can turn it off in the mouse controls section. If you prefer an even cleaner look that just shows a crosshair with no brackets, download THIS FILE and extract the .ttf file into the following folder to replace the original. It eliminates the brackets altogether. Steam/SteamApps/youraccountname/half-life2/hl2/resource

MULTI PLAYER: Since they serve no real purpose in multiplayer, many people prefer to not have the curved brackets around the crosshair. I have found that there are occasions where they actually helped in aiming so have left them intact in each crosshair on this site. If you would rather not have them, download THIS FILE,, and extract the .ttf file to the following folder: Steam\SteamApps\youraccountname\half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2\resource. Any of the following multiplayer crosshairs will then have no brackets around them.
