COD Warzone best graphics settings – COD Warzone runs quite smoothly for the most part but it looks like some players are experiencing some performance related issues here and there. It makes sense as not everyone is sitting with a powerful gaming PC. In fact, according to the latest Steam Hardware Survey done on February 2020 shows that most of the gamers still game on low-medium graphics cards.
But this is the greatest thing about PC gaming. You don’t need overpriced hardware to play games as you can customize the in-game graphics settings of the game you want to play and then get the best performance out of it, even if you have a low end gaming rig.
Tweaking in-game graphics or video settings not only gives you a smoother experience but also gets rid of performance issues like lag, sudden fps drops, stuttering, etc. Same is the case with Call of Duty Warzone. Lets see if it is possible to make this game run for people with low end graphics cards by tweaking the in-game video or graphics settings.
Call of Duty (COD) Warzone – Best Graphics Settings
It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 2080 Super or a RX 5700 XT.
Though the system requirements of Call of Duty Warzone are slightly on the higher side, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:

We were surprised to see how well the game ran on such a mediocre gaming PC. Now a lot of you might say that GTX 1050 ti isn’t mediocre, why would you even buy a high-end AAA title, that too a COD one, if you not going to play it on at least a 1050 ti.
The frame rates were hovering over 55-60 most of time with drops to 45 at certain instances. But the experience was smooth for the most part. We tried single-player as well as multiplayer and the game ran fine in both modes.
That’s all folks!
