I noticed that Celsius uses a green dot overlay when he posted the video to get Walking Hurtle banned. Is this acceptable then? I'm not sure because nobody has brought it up before and I wasn't aware people were even using them for this game. I didn't even know of their existence until recently while watching a video talking about tricks in goldeneye speedrunning i.e. a game where you didn't have a fixed crosshair on screen -- so ppl would put stuff on their monitor to mark it. I forsee the main advantage to having a dot overlay being in long range br battles where aim assist is weak on controller and you could use a focus point that isn't marked when you only have a blue reticle for example.

Honestly don't see why not. There is nothing stopping you from putting playdough on your screen a la Goldeneye speedrunning or using some stupidly complicated hardware setup that injects a dot on the center of the screen after your computer sent the signal from its HDMI (or w/e port you're using) and before your monitor getting it.

It's apparently used because the standard stock reticles become invisible and blend in at times during the match. Plus it's shiny and a green dot.
