How to change your FOV in Modern Warfare 2

In the past, console players have been excluded from the FOV option, leaving the setting for PC players to tamper with. However, like Vanguard, Modern Warfare 2 allows console players to customize their FOV, which is a huge win.

FOV mostly comes down to preference, but our recommendation is anything between 105 to 115. This does depend on your setup, especially your screen/monitor size.

We recommend starting your FOV at 105, and increasing or decreasing the value as you see fit. Remember, increasing the value of your FOV will make it harder to see enemies at range, so play around with it until you’re comfortable with the FOV at both long-range and close quarters.

ADS Field of View

We recommend using the Affected ADS Field of View option, as this will give you a natural zoom regardless of your FOV setting when aiming down your sights.

Independent will exaggerate your ADS zoom, which can sometimes be off-putting when trying to stay on target.

Weapon Field of View

This setting will change the size of your weapon on the screen, adjusting the “height and width of the in-game weapon view.”

We recommend that players who have a higher FOV, anything over 95, should set this option to Wide. This will make your weapon look slightly smaller than the default, which allows more screen space for you to see what’s going on in front of you.
