Does Warzone 2 have ray tracing?

Like most triple-A releases, there's a high chance Warzone 2 will feature ray tracing in some capacity. The additional lighting will showcase the brand-new map with incredible detail and if you want the best-looking experience, we recommend turning it on once the game launches.

If you're after a competitive edge, it's best to have it switched off in case it influences frame rate.
