Modern Warfare 2 FOV Slider On Consoles & Best Settings

Modern Warfare 2 Early Access on PS4/PS5 consoles starts on 16th September 2022, giving players their first experience. As pre-loads are underway, a Modern Warfare 2 Field of View (FOV) slider has been spotted in the game's beta files. 

This article explains how the FOV slider on consoles for COD Modern Warfare 2 has been spotted and the best settings players can use during the multiplayer beta and beyond.

First spotted by CharlieINTEL, some users who have accessed the Modern Warfare 2 beta files have confirmed the existence of a FOV slider on consoles, alongside a Field of View option for the third-person view. We believe the third-person view is for vehicles.

A FOV slider on consoles was one of the biggest requests for Modern Warfare (2019), and yes, Vanguard did have one. 

Changing your Field of View defines the height and width of your in-game view. The lower the FOV, the less you can see.

Most gamers like a higher FOV setting, but there are some drawbacks. For example, increasing the FOV from default may cause lower frame rates and some artifacts on less powerful systems.

Speaking of less powerful systems, users have also confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 has a FOV slider on PS4, and there's no reason to believe it won't be available on Xbox One.

So what are the best FOV settings for Modern Warfare 2 on consoles? The default is 80, and while it can be lowered to 60, we do not recommend this.

We recommend 100 and 120 as the best FOV setting for all Call of Duty titles. Further, we recommend gamers play around with settings between 90 and 120 to see what works best for them. The higher the FOV, the more you can see, so a higher-than-default setting will be helpful in many situations.

So there you have everything we know about the Modern Warfare 2 FOV slider on consoles and the best settings. At the time of writing, it is unclear if the FOV slider will also be available on PS4 or Xbox One consoles or if it is a current-gen option only.
