AW3418DW, built-in crosshair overlay?

This question is not answered

I'm looking into buying this monitor since it has all the specs I am looking for in a monitor. There is just one thing I'm missing. Does it have a crosshair overlay? Since its a top of the line gaming monitor I expect that it does (all of the competitors also have a crosshair feature like the Acer and Asus in their gaming line of monitors). But I just cant find that information online. Could you help me with my troubles? :)

  • "crosshair overlay" is not specifically mentioned in the User's Guide, so no, not "built-in". You would have to install some 3rd party software to accomplish this. In a single player shooter game that has no crosshair, no big deal to use a crosshair overlay. But in any multi-player shooter game that does not provide a crosshair, it would be viewed as cheating and could get you kicked from their server.

  • I see, but still your competitors like the Acer and Asus which are in the same line of top of the line gaming monitors have that feature. In that case thats too bad would have been a perfect monitor if it had a crosshair overlay.
