Best FOV settings for Warzone 2 Season 6
Warzone 2 gives you the option to tweak your Field of View which allows you to control how much of the map you’d like to see on your screen. As it influences your ability to spot enemies, here are the recommended FOV settings for Warzone 2 Season 6.
Warzone 2 Season 6 has introduced new content to the game, including the addition of three new weapons: TR-76 Geist AR, the Dual Kamas Melee, and the ISO 9mm SMG. To fully utilize these weapons, adjusting your Field of View or FOV can be beneficial, allowing you to easily spot enemies from a distance.
FOV plays a crucial role in strategizing rotations and is a key setting in battle royale games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Warzone 2. However, it’s important to balance your FOV settings with hardware limitations and aim assist considerations.
On that note, let’s take a look at the best FOV settings in Warzone 2 Season 6 for console and keyboard and mouse players.

How to change FOV in Warzone 2 Season 6
Warzone 2 players can adjust their FOV by going into the game’s settings and following these steps:
- Launch Call of Duty: Warzone 2
- Open up settings
- Select the ‘Graphics’ tab
- Look under the ‘View’ section for FOV settings
- Use the slider to adjust to your desired FOV in Warzone 2
All Warzone 2 players, including those on consoles, have access to a FOV slider. A Field of View slider was the most highly requested feature for console players and with Warzone 2, they are no longer locked in at 80 FOV.
Best FOV for Warzone 2 controller players
Console or controller Warzone 2 should set their FOV between 95 and 105. Maxing out your FOV to 120 is not recommended, especially when it comes to controller players as your targets will shrink beyond your ability to hit them accurately.
While fitting more targets into your screen is a welcome bonus, you want to account for Aim Assist that kicks in for controller players and not make targets too difficult to hit. On the flip side, having your FOV under 95 will cut out too much of your screen.
For this reason, between 95 and 105 is the sweet spot. When it comes to ADS Field of View and Weapon Field of View, we recommend controller players opt for Independent and Default.
Best FOV for Warzone 2 mouse and keyboard players
For Warzone 2 keyboard players, FOV anywhere between 105 and 115 is recommended. Given the micro-adjustments that mouse and keyboard players can make when aiming at small targets, players can benefit from a slightly wider FOV.
We still suggest opting for Independent as it makes hitting long-range targets a little easier. However, if you prefer to maintain a constant FOV whether you’re aiming down sight or not, you can opt for Affected.
PC players can also take advantage of the Wide Weapon Field of View setting, which will make their weapon appear smaller, covering less of the screen.
Does FOV affect PC performance in Warzone 2?
FOV definitely has an impact on your PC performance in Warzone 2. This is especially true for anyone with slightly dated hardware. Of course, if you’re running top-of-the-line hardware, boasting a high FOV shouldn’t have as much of an impact on your PC performance.
With a higher FOV, Warzone 2 will attempt to display more information on your screen. This leads to your hardware compensating for the increase and it could be taxing on older models.
If you notice that your PC is struggling more than usual after you’ve adjusted your FOV in Warzone 2, you may want to experiment and find the setting that works best for you. Taking it down to under 100 should do the trick.
What is Affected FOV in Warzone 2?
The Affected ADS Field of View setting will cut out the primary zoom that occurs when aiming down sight and maintain the value of your preferred FOV, even when aiming.
Affected offers less visual recoil to deal with and if your PC offers high-resolution performance, then Affected FOV may be ideal for you as far-off enemies won’t lose their clarity.
Meanwhile, the Independent ADS Field of View setting will zoom your FOV when aiming down sight, which means you can lock on to players easier once you’ve spotted them with your increased FOV.
