There are a total of 3 colors available at the moment that should satisfy your needs: Red, Purple, and Yellow. Note that changing this setting will only affect the enemy highlight color, there is no way to change the color of the elements of Valorant’s UI.

If you are not suffering from any kind of colorblindness we would recommend you stick with the default red color. Mainly because you have likely already developed a habit to associate red with the enemy and changing the color may affect it. Some players also pointed out that it can get tricky recognizing whether the agent is on your team or not if they have a matching outfit (Killjoy = Yellow, Reyna = Purple).

But if you still want to change it, we’d recommend yellow as it stands out much more than other colors. Play around with it for some time and see if this helps your performance and reaction times. Don’t jump to conclusions straight away because you may be biased, similar to how it works with crosshairs.

  • Yellow (Deuteranopia): Red – Green colorblindness
  • Yellow (Protanopia): Red – Green colorblindness

Always make sure to consult with your doctor before playing. Clarify what kind of colorblindness you have and how to go around it in video games.
