March 28, 2023: Ensuring you have the best MW2 FOV settings is a surefire way to improve your gameplay. Scroll down for all the intel.

Using the best Modern Warfare 2 FOV settings is 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.


Modern Warfare 2 is officially out now, and players are on the hunt for the strongest settings to use in a bid to gain the upper hand over the opposition.

Call of Duty: Vanguard launched with a FOV slider, and so did MW2 which is great news for console players wanting the same settings as their PC counterparts. With that said, here are the best Modern Warfare 2 FOV settings to use and how to change them to suit your needs.

Does Modern Warfare 2 have a FOV slider?

Yes! Modern Warfare 2 does have a FOV slider for PC and console which is great news for those wanting a better view of the action.

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.

How to change FOV in Modern Warfare 2

As we've not had a chance to play Modern Warfare 2, the process of changing FOV is unknown. However, we can take a guess based on the process from Vanguard. Here's the likely method to change FOV in Modern Warfare 2:

  • Load into Modern Warfare 2.
  • Select 'Settings' then move to the 'Graphics' tab.
  • Scroll to 'Gameplay.'
  • Head to 'Field of View.'
  • Adjust the slider to your preference.
  • Press Square or X to 'Show More' options (includes Affected or Independent)

Once we've had a chance to experiment with different Modern Warfare 2 FOV settings, we will update the guide with more details on how to change it.

When does Modern Warfare 2 Season Two start?

The second season of post-launch content for Modern Warfare 2 is expected to start on February 12, 2023. Thanks to the battle pass countdown timer, this is the likely start date for a brand-new season heavily rumoured to feature a Japanese theme and the return of a popular Operator from 2019's Modern Warfare.

If the date changes, we'll update the guide so you know when the update launches and if Infinity Ward makes adjustments to the game's existing FOV options.

That's all there is to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 FOV settings. While we wait for more intel, don't forget to check our guide showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 maps.
