Best Warzone FOV

For Warzone PC players, Field of View is an extremely important setting – it allows you to see much more in front of you, but having the wrong settings can completely throw your game off. Here are the best FOV settings for Warzone Season 3.

Field of View, or FOV, is a setting available in most competitive FPS games. This allows you to adjust how much of your surroundings you can see. For the most part, the higher the FOV you have, the better. Having a high FOV will majorly improve your spatial awareness, allowing you to see enemies that would usually be off to the side of your screen.

However, having your FOV cranked to the max can make targets appear small, and also give a massive hit to your performance.

We’re taking a look at the best FOV settings for Warzone Season 3.

Best FOV for Warzone controller players

If you’re playing Warzone on PC with a controller, you need to have a FOV that complements your gameplay. Once you have the best settings, you need to find the FOV that’s right for you.

Warzone defaults to 80 FOV, and this is also what console players are locked to. However, PC players get the option of raising their FOV all the way up to 120, and a high FOV has its pros and cons.

For a controller player, anywhere between 95 and 105 is an ideal FOV. You’ll get all the spatial awareness of a high FOV, but your targets won’t be so shrunk that they’re difficult to see and hit. As most controller players can’t make the micro-adjustments that a mouse offers, you don’t want your FOV to be too high.

Warzone 100 FOV

Having a high FOV shrinks targets at long range to fit more into your screen, and this makes them difficult to hit – especially when accounting for Aim Assist. Too low, however, and too much of your screen will be cut. You won’t see enemies off to the side, and you may get motion sickness.

Controller players playing on high FOV should take advantage of the Scale Aim Assist with FOV option, and set it to Enabled. This scales the aim assist bubbles with your FOV, meaning your aim will feel consistent no matter your field of view.

Best FOV for Warzone mouse and keyboard players

Luckily for Warzone mouse and keyboard players, they don’t need to worry about Aim Assist. No matter how small their targets are from a high FOV, they can make those fine adjustments without the Aim Assist bubble getting in the way.

Warzone 110 FOV

Making these fine adjustments are especially important when playing at a high FOV, as objects and targets will be much smaller as the game fits more into your screen.

We recommend Warzone mouse and keyboard players set their FOV from anywhere between 105 and 115. You won’t have the ‘fisheye’ effect that a 120 FOV offers, but you can take advantage of a mouse’s fine aim control to hit those slightly smaller targets.

Does FOV affect PC performance?

Unfortunately, if you’re running a slightly dated graphics card such as the NVIDIA 10 series, having a high FOV will severely affect your PC’s performance.

As the game tries to display more information on-screen, this will be a lot more taxing on your system. You need to experiment with the FOV slider and find the setting that’s right for your system. If it’s struggling, consider taking the FOV down to under 100 and see if that helps.

If you really want the highest FOV possible and maintain a stable performance, you can follow our guide on the best PC settings for Warzone Season 3.

What is Affected FOV in Warzone?

Warzone offers players the option to set their aim down sight FOV as Independent or Affected. Both of these settings have their pros and cons, so we’re breaking down each to help you decide which you should use.

Independent FOV

Warzone Independent FOV

The game defaults your FOV to 80. This is what console versions of the game run at, and is the standard for Call of Duty games. When set to Independent, when you ADS with low-zoom optics and iron sights, your game will go to around 80 FOV.

Even if you’re playing at a FOV of 120, your game will zoom in when you ADS, making far-off targets easier to track and hit – especially when you’re using a controller. However, while aiming, you’ll lose a ton of the spatial awareness that a high FOV offers.

We recommend most players use Independent FOV as targets will be much easier to see and hit, especially at the long ranges of Verdansk ’84. Having Independent is the best of both worlds – you get your huge FOV when moving, and then get a tight and accurate view when shooting.

Affected FOV

Warzone affected FOV

Setting your FOV to affected means that your field of view remains constant, even when you’re aiming. Some players prefer this as there’s jarring zoom when aiming at a target, there’s less visual recoil, and you keep your spatial awareness.

The targets will continue to appear small and far away, making them harder to hit, which is why some players avoid this setting. It will also cause aim assist bubbles to feel slightly inconsistent, so it’s a setting more suited to mouse and keyboard players.

PC players with large, high-resolution monitors can take advantage of affected FOV. They’ll still be able to see the enemies they’re aiming at clearly, allowing them to keep the advantage of a high FOV.

Will a Warzone FOV slider come to consoles?

Warzone xbox and ps5 controller

Warzone console players have long been requesting a FOV slider. A high FOV offers a distinct advantage to PC players, and with crossplay enabled by default, many find this advantage unfair.

With how taxing a high FOV is on hardware, Activision was concerned that including the slider on the Xbox One and PS4 would affect performance too much. Fans’ disappointment was amplified when Black Ops Cold War released with a FOV slider on all platforms

However, with the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 now being out, players have been looking for a console next-gen version with an included FOV slider. Activision confirmed that they are looking into adding the FOV slider to consoles, but said they “cannot share” a timeline at this point.


Like almost all settings in Warzone, it’s all down to preference. You should test different FOVs with Affected and Independent ADS options, and see what works best for you.

Best Oden loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

The Oden deals significant damage at range, so here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone Oden loadout for Season 3.

Best Warzone Oden Loadout

With a low fire rate but serious damage, the Oden is a solid choice of weapon to use in Warzone Season 3. Here are the attachments and perks to maximize its potential and make the best Warzone Oden loadout.

As Warzone has developed, fights are often decided at range. Long-range guns such as the AUG, Kar98k, and AMAX have shot up in popularity, and if built right, the Oden can contend with any of these weapons. Modern Warfare’s Assault Rifles are usually fast firing with low recoil. Still, the Oden prioritizes damage per bullet over fire rate, allowing it to blast away enemies’ armor at any range.

We’ve put together the attachments and perks you should run to dominate Verdansk ’84 with the best Warzone Oden loadout.

Best Warzone Oden loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor
  • Barrel: Oden Factory 730mm
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags

The Oden dominates in the long lines of sight that Warzone offers. With a slow fire rate but a powerful punch, the Oden is devastating in the hands of an accurate player. We’ve built this Oden to maximize its accuracy and damage at range, making it a great choice for any player.

To increase the weapon’s effective damage range and recoil control, we’ve added the Colossus Suppressor. While large and heavy, this silencer improves the Oden’s recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range. For a bonus, you’ll be hidden from the minimap when firing.

To further improve its damage range, the Oden Factory 730mm barrel is a perfect choice. Your damage over range will be improved further, but you won’t be slowed down as much as if you use the 810mm option. It’s worth using the popular Commando Foregrip for extra recoil control, too.

For optics, there’s no better scope than the VLK 3.0x Optic. This magnified scope offers great visibility at all ranges, which will make aiming for the head and chest much easier when using the Oden at a distance. And finally, to make sure you can drop several enemies before reloading, the 30 Round Mags will be necessary.

Best perks for Warzone Oden class

Perk 1 – Double Time

The Oden is one of the heaviest Assault Rifles Warzone has to offer, so if you want some extra mobility while navigating the map, Double Time is the perk for you. You’ll be able to Tactical Sprint for longer and crouch walks faster to help strafe in engagements.

Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost

As this Oden is built for long-range, it’s worth running an SMG or Shotgun for fighting up close, and Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons.

Once you have your guns, you should try to get Ghost from your next loadout to be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

And finally, with the weight of the Oden, weapon swapping will be agonizingly slow, so Amped will remove that delay, allowing you to switch guns instantly.

How to unlock the Oden

Players looking to make the best Warzone Oden loadout will first need to unlock this Assault Rifle. Interested individuals can unlock this weapon by reaching level 28 in either the Call of Duty battle royale or Modern Warfare, so a couple of hours of playing should have you adding this weapon to your inventory without any trouble.

How to play Warzone Strat Roulette

You can set yourself fun challenges in Warzone with random Loadouts and special rules by playing Strat Roulette, so here’s how.

How to play Warzone Strat Roulette

Warzone players have been shaking up their gameplay with fun challenges set by Strat Roulette, so here’s how to play.

While Warzone is known for being uber-competitive at times, sometimes it’s fun to play with off-meta weapons and strategies for a change of scenery and a unique challenge. With over a hundred weapons to choose from and a ton that are viable in Season 3, it can be tough to choose which weapons to deploy.

This is where the Warzone Strat Roulette website comes in. By using this site, you can randomize your Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and give yourself a Special Rule.

Here’s how to play Warzone Strategy Roulette.

Warzone loadout drops

Playing Warzone Strat Roulette is simple:

  1. Head to Warzone Strat Roulette on your browser
  2. Make sure each category is selected, or deselect the options you don’t want
  3. Hit ‘Roll’
  4. Play CoD: Warzone and stick to the Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and Special Rule you’re assigned

The Loadout option will assign you with weapons from your loadout or force you to stick to specific Tiers of Ground Loot. Attachments are completely up to you but you could end with some of the best loadouts, or be left stuck with only using common weapons from the floor.

And, as it says on the tin, the Drop Zone will give you a random named location to land in. However, you should bear in mind that the Drop Zone list hasn’t been updated for Season 3 and Verdansk ’84, so if it says ‘Quarry,’ you should go to Salt Mine, and ‘Dam’ is Summit.

Whatever Vehicle the randomizer lands on is the only one you can use for the game, which may be tough if you get the ‘Vehicular Manslaughter’ Special Rule, in which you must run over every enemy you see.

Special Rules are set challenges to complete during the match, ranging from a mild inconvenience to downright frustrating.

Here are some of the options available:

  • Farmer: Jump from the plane with the AFK’ers
  • Lounge Chair: You can only get kills from a vehicle (no roadkills, shooting from a seat)
  • Heads Up: You must fire at least 3 warning shots close to the enemy before hitting them
  • Afraid of Heights: You can’t go above the first story of any building.

Bear in mind that there are no rewards or incentives offered, it’s simply a tool to give yourself a fun challenge inside Warzone.

The “Mother Of All Bundles” is on its way to Call of Duty: Warzone, and this is everything we know about the gigantic, $100 bundle of cosmetics and goodies.

Speculation is running rampant about the nature of Call of Duty’s epic M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle that is set to be one of, if not the, biggest bundles in Call of Duty history.

It’s caught the public’s attention due to its hefty $100 price tag, which begs the question as to what it actually contains. With hot announcements happening such as Rambo and John McClane being revealed as surprise inclusions to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, a mega bundle is just the tip of the iceberg.

When will Warzone’s M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle release?

At this moment in time, we’re not exactly sure when players can expect to buy it as Activision has given no other further details regarding its potential release date at this juncture.

We can only speculate that it will coincide with the launch Warzone Season 3 Reloaded or with the beginning of Season 4.

Once we have the official date we will update this page.

What’s in the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle in CoD?

The Official Call of Duty store is bucking the trend for Call of Duty bundles by keeping the M.O.A.B details a secret right now, so they currently don’t want people to know what’s in it.

If you view the bundle on the Call of Duty store, you will see the name of the bundle, the price, and that’s it. But the overriding thought is that given that it’s the “Battle Pass” bundle, the $100 M.O.A.B bundle is set to include every item from all of the previous Battle Passes for Warzone.

It’ll be great for players to catch up on any previously missed content that is now unobtainable.

How much will the Warzone M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle cost?

The graphic for the bundle indicates that players will have to part with a whopping 10,000 COD Points if they want to acquire this mysterious set of items.

To break this down, as previously stated, the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle will cost players $99 or £84.99 to provide themselves with the necessary COD Points.

Details are obviously a bit scarce at the moment regarding the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle, so we will be updating this page with additional information once more is known about it.

Also, learn more about COD Points and how they work.
