COD Modern Warfare 3 Looking Blurry – What to do?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is finally available for PC players. PC users who had pre-ordered Modern Warfare 3 got early access to the campaign on November 2, 2023.

People are thoroughly enjoying COD MW3, and Sledgehammer Games has been getting feedback from all around the world. I am really liking the trajectory of Modern Warfare 2023. This brings me to the problems that the game has. I played the PS5 version first, and the experience was awesome. It was the Steam version where I started encountering a few bugs. One of them causes the game to go blurry or switch to very bad graphics. Are you having the same issue? Let’s see if there is a way to fix the issue.

Modern Warfare 3 suddenly looking Blurry

Modern Warfare 3 on PC has a weird issue where the game starts looking blurry out of nowhere, the textures start looking bad, and the graphics quality really takes a huge dip.

Here is why this happens: this mainly happens when you make changes to the Upscaling setting or minimize or Alt+Tab out of the game. When that happens, this game starts thinking of itself as a Background Process. And since Windows, by default, is set to not allocate a ton of resources to background processes. MW3, unable to borrow enough power, downgrades the quality of the graphics.

How to fix the Blurriness

If Modern Warfare 3 is suddenly blurry for you, don’t panic. The fix is quite easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Graphics.
  3. Under the Display tab, make sure that the Display Mode is set to “Fullscreen Exclusive”, and that your Display Resolution matches the default resolution of your monitor.
  4. Now click on the Quality tab at the top.
  5. You will notice that your “Render Resolution” has gone down to 50.
  6. Set it back to 100 and apply the settings.
  7. The blurriness should be gone.

And that is all you need to do to get rid of the blurry graphics.
