What are the best Warzone 2 PC settings?

With Warzone 2 not appearing until the middle of November, it's currently impossible to determine the best PC settings to use. However, the current iteration of the game provides a solid baseline that's likely to run the game at a stable frame rate. Here's what we recommend:


  • Display Mode: Full Screen
  • Display Monitor: Your preferred monitor
  • Display adapter: Your graphics card
  • Screen Refresh Rate: Match your monitors refresh rate (e.g. 360 fps for a 360Hz monitor)
  • Render Resolution: 100%
  • Aspect Ratio: Automatic
  • V-Sync: Disabled
  • Custom Framerate Limit: Custom
  • NVIDIA Highlights: Disabled
  • NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency: Enabled + Boost

Shadows and lighting

  • Shadow Map Resolution: Low
  • Cache Spot Shadows: Enabled
  • Cache Sun Shadows: Enabled
  • Particle Lighting: Low
  • DirectX Raytracing: Disabled
  • Ambient Occlusion: Disabled
  • Screen Space Reflection (SSR): Disabled

Post processing effects

  • NVIDIA DLSS (NVIDIA RTX cards only): Performance
  • Anti-Aliasing: Off
  • Depth of Field: Disabled
  • Filmic Strength: 0.00
  • World Motion Blur: Disabled
  • Weapon Motion Blur: Disabled
  • Film Grain: 0.00

To stop any visuals from disrupting your focus, we highly recommend disabling world motion blur and weapon motion blur. It also makes the game look much worse.

Details and textures

  • Streaming Quality: Low
  • Texture Resolution: Low
  • Texture Filter Anisotropic: Low
  • Particle Quality: Low
  • Bullet impacts and sprays: Disabled
  • Tessellation: Disabled
  • On-demand Texture Streaming: Disabled

Even if your hardware is capable of running Warzone 2 at a better quality, setting all of the above settings to low is a great starting point. If you want the game to look better, don't hesitate to increase them to medium or even high if your PC can handle it.
