Fix Modern Warfare 2 Looking Blurry

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is finally available for PC players. But, in the beta form of course. PC users who had pre-ordered Modern Warfare 2 got early access to the beta on September 22, 2022. The free-for-all beta will be available from September 24.

Personally, I love developers who like to give a taste of their games by introducing beta versions a month or two before the launch. And this is one of the reasons, I love COD so much.

The COD betas have been helping me decide whether I want to buy the game or not, for a very long time now. In fact, this is one of the events that I wait for the entire year.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, as the COD betas normally tend to reveal a lot about the games. 9 out of 10 times you would be able to decide whether you are going to purchase the COD game of the year, by just playing the beta. And Modern Warfare 2 is no different.

People are thoroughly enjoying the MW2 beta, and Infinity Ward has been getting feedback from all around the world. I am really liking the trajectory of Modern Warfare 2022.

This brings me to the issues of the game. 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 2 Blurry

Why is Modern Warfare 2 suddenly looking Blurry?

Well, Modern Warfare 2 beta on PC has a weird issue where the game suddenly starts looking blurry, the textures start looking bad, and the graphics quality really takes a huge dip.

Let me tell you, this mainly happens when you minimize or Alt+Tab out of the game, or there is a pop-up in the background of your Windows PC. 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. Modern Warfare 2, unable to borrow enough power, downgrades the quality of the graphics.

How to fix the Blurriness

If Modern Warfare 2 has suddenly started appearing 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. Make sure that the Display Mode is set to “Fullscreen”.
  4. Not click on the Quality tab on the top.
  5. You will notice that your “Render Resolution” has gone down to 50.
