In Modern Warfare 2, players are able to alter their field of view with the FOV slider in the settings menu. For those looking to get a competitive edge, here’s the best FOV settings to have in the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

Call of Duty is an extremely competitive game, and like any competitive first-person shooter, you’re going to want to have every advantage that you can over your opponents in the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

Of course, having the best controller settings can help if you’re not the biggest fan of mouse and keyboard, but there’s also the field of view to account for, which players have been extremely happy to see on the console versions of the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

Having the best FOV settings in the Modern Warfare 2 beta can greatly enhance your gameplay and experience, so here’s our recommendation for the best FOV settings to use.

How to change your FOV in Modern Warfare 2 beta

In the past, the FOV option has been restricted on console, leaving the setting for PC players to tamper with. However, Modern Warfare 2 will be allowing console players to finally customize their FOV, which is a huge win.

In order to actually change your FOV in the Modern Warfare 2 beta, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta
  2. Open up settings
  3. Select the ‘Graphics’ tab
  4. Look under the ‘View’ section for FOV setting
  5. Move the slider to your desired FOV
  6. Press the ‘Show More’ button for the ADS Field of View and Weapon Field of View Options

Best FOV for Modern Warfare 2 beta

The Field of View option is set at 80 by default, but many find it way too low in terms of what they can see in-game.

FOV mostly comes down to preference, but our recommendation is anything between 105 to the max of 120. 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 more natural zoom for what your FOV setting is 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.


Well, there you have it, that’s our guide for the best FOV settings in the Modern Warfare 2 beta. For more, make sure you check out how to enable 120 FPS on PS5 and what classic CoD feature players want to return in MW2.
