How to Turn off Motion Blur in COD Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 Motion Blur – Motion blur was introduced in Call of Duty because it increases the realism and smooths out the game’s appearance for players getting around 30 FPS or less. But most COD players dislike Motion blur turning on, especially during fast PVP multiplayer matches.

As we all know, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is a First-Person Shooter game published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward in 2022. It is a sequel to Call of Duty Modern Warfare which first came out in 2019.

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. A special Cooperative Ops mode will also return from one of the previous installments, including two-player coop missions.

The game is available on all the major gaming platforms like PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series S and X.

The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 also includes the Motion Blur effect for you to have a better experience in the game. Originally Motion blur was meant for racing games as turning it off often leads to strain on the eyes and can cause motion sickness for some. If you face issues like that, always turn on the motion blur when playing, although this is quite rare.

But for a competitive multiplayer mode in COD MW2, we recommend you turn off the motion blur, as your primary focus should be the performance. You can see the enemies without the blur if they shoot you from the side. It also helps eliminate the lags that motion blur often brings and increases the reaction time. You can turn it on for the campaign if you want, as per your preference.

So this article will guide you on how to turn off Motion Blur in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 2022.
