How to play Warzone in 120 FPS

The glorious 120 FPS option have become available in Warzone Season 4. Thankfully, it doesn't take a genius to figure out the settings needed to play Warzone in 120 FPS. However, there are some things you need to adjust, and additional requirements.

First up, your TV or monitor needs to have 120 Hz support. Further, if your TV or monitor does not have HDMI 2.1 but does support 120Hz, you will only be able to play Warzone at 120 FPS at 1080p. For those with an HDMI 2.1 display, you can enjoy 120 FPS at 4K resolution in Warzone.

Follow the steps below to play Warzone at a glorious 120 FPS:

  • Download and install the Warzone Season 4 update.
  • Head into your PS5 system settings menu.
  • Select "Screen and Video"
  • At the bottom, choose automatic for the "Enable 120Hz Output".
  • If you don't have an HDMI 2.1 monitor, also choose 1080p via the "Resolution" tab.
  • In your "Game Presets" tab, remember to set it to "Performance Mode".
  • Save your settings and launch Warzone.

That's about it to enjoy smooth gameplay in Verdansk right now. All you need to do further is enjoy Warzone at 120 FPS on your PS5, provided you have a screen that supports 120Hz.

One caveat is that you might need to disable HDR, as some users run into the issue of the HDR setting reverting the 120 FPS back to 60 FPS.
