It's official. Modern Warfare 2 does contain a FOV slider on all platforms!

While we wait for the full launch, check out all there is to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs.

Selecting the right field of view (FOV) in Call of Duty titles has become an integral ingredient when it comes to ensuring the game suits your personal preferences. Changing the FOV enables you to see more of the surrounding environment which means you can spot enemies that wouldn't be visible.

With the Call of Duty Next event on the horizon and as players look forward to the first look at Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, some are beginning to wonder if Infinity Ward's next release will contain a FOV slider.

Call of Duty: Vanguard launched with a FOV slider, suggesting the feature will now appear in future releases. With that said, here are the best Modern Warfare 2 FOV settings to use and how to change them to suit your needs.

After tweaking the FOV, we've settled on a FOV of 100 for an ideal balance between spacial awareness and not having any kind of fishbowl effect.

If you prefer a more zoomed-in look, lower it to 90, jump into a match, and see how it feels.
