How to change Field of View in COD Modern Warfare 2

Change FOV in Modern Warfare 2 – Field of View is a critical setting for multiplayer First-Person shooter games. The FOV determines how much of the game area or game world you want to see during a particular moment in the game. The new COD Modern Warfare has included new Field of View options for you to choose from and customize according to your preference.

The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 2022 is a First-Person Shooter game published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward. It is a sequel to Call of Duty Modern Warfare which first came out in 2019 and is available on all the major gaming platforms like Playstation 4, Playstation 5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series S and X.

The game includes a wide range of game modes such as the Knockout, Prisoner Rescue, Third Person Game Modes, and a 3v3 Raid Game mode that will be available soon.

This game is highly anticipated, especially after Activision received massive criticism for Call of Duty Vanguard. You will be able to play with different Modern Warfare Iconic characters like Captain John Price, Sergeant Kyle Gaz, and much more. The developers added new Mexican special forces as well in this game.

In COD MW2, the FOV will depend on your monitor/TV’s aspect ratio and the rendering resolution and will increase with a wider aspect ratio as you increase the FOV meter in the game settings.

To put it into perspective, if you improve the FOV, you will have a wider aspect ratio, and you will be able to see more enemies, but it will hamper performance; on the other hand, if you lower the FOV, your viewing area will be shortened, but you will have better performance because the screen has to render fewer objects at any given moment of the game. However, you can change the settings if you have different aspect ratio monitors like Ultrawide.

So this article will guide you on how to change the field of view in COD Modern Warfare 2.
