For the best-looking version of Warzone 2, setting everything to high is ideal but if your system can't handle it, lower them to medium for a boost in performance.

Additionally, we recommend switching motion blur off for a crystal-clear view of the surrounding area.

View

  • Field of View: 90 to 100 (personal preference)
  • ADS Field of View: Affected
  • Weapon Field of View: Default
  • Vehicle Field of View: Default
  • 1st Person Camera: Default
  • 3rd Person Camera: Default

Selecting your favourite field of view (FOV) makes all the difference in Warzone 2. Having the ability to view more of what's happening makes spotting enemies much easier but if you adjust it too much, the graphics are affected. A FOV between 90 and 100 will work perfectly.
