MW2: What is the Best FOV Setting?

Last Updated on October 28, 2022

FOV in Modern Warfare 2: Every year, millions of gamers eagerly await the release of the latest Call of Duty game. For many, it is the most anticipated event of the year. The games are always highly anticipated, featuring cutting-edge graphics and exciting gameplay. This year’s installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, is shaping up to be one of the best yet.

I can talk a lot about how the game is, but that won’t do justice to what the developers have done. Many gamers are still waiting to get their hands on Beta Access which goes live on September 24, which is only a few hours from now.

What is FOV?

Field of view, commonly abbreviated as FOV, refers to the width of the virtual world that is visible at any given moment while playing a video game. It is typically measured as an angle, and its size can be altered in most games to give players a more or less immersive experience.

A wider field of view means that more of the game world will be visible onscreen, while a narrower field of view will give players a more focused view. Some gamers prefer a wider field of view as it makes it easier to spot enemies, while others find that it can cause discomfort or even nausea. Ultimately, it is up to each individual player to decide what FOV settings are best for them.

How To Change FOV in Modern Warfare 2?

To Change FOV in Modern Warfare 2: Go to Quick Settings, Scroll Down all the way to the bottom, and adjust the setting according to your personal preference.

Keep in mind that the FOV gets adjusted according to the resolution your game’s running in. Also, running the game on non-native resolution can make it look blurry.

High vs Low FOV – What is the best setting?

When it comes to high vs low FOV in competitive games, there are pros and cons to both sides. On the one hand, high FOV gives you a wider view of the battlefield and can help you spot enemies more easily. On the other hand, low FOV can make it easier to track moving targets and focus on your crosshair.

Ultimately, the best FOV for you depends on your personal preferences and playing style. If you’re more concerned with spotting enemies early, high FOV is probably the way to go. However, if you prefer to have a more precise aim, low FOV might be a better option. Whichever you choose, just remember that practice makes perfect!

The best Setting is subjective, but to strike a balance I recommend having the FOV somewhere between 105 to 120.
