Best FOV settings for Warzone Pacific Season 3

Warzone PC players can take advantage of a much higher FOV, so we’re taking a look at the best field of view settings for Season 3.

80 and 105 FOV in Warzone Pacific

For Warzone PC players, Field of View is an extremely important setting – it allows you to see much more of what’s around 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. YouTuber JGOD has demonstrated the incredible difference that having a FOV slider has in your game.

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.

How to change FOV in Warzone Season 3

If you’re on PC, you can adjust your FOV by going into your settings and using the following options:

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone
  2. Open up settings
  3. Select the ‘General’ tab
  4. Look under the ‘Screen’ section for FOV settings
  5. Click on ‘Advanced’ for more options

Unfortunately, only PC Warzone players have received a FOV slider

Best FOV for Warzone controller players

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 many controller players will have trouble making the micro-adjustments that a mouse offers, you don’t want your FOV to be too high.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Does FOV affect PC performance?

Unfortunately, if you’re running a slightly dated graphics card, having a high FOV can 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 while maintaining 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

When set to Independent, when you ADS with low-zoom optics and iron sights, your game will go to around 80 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.

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 Caldera. 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

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?

Unfortunately, a Warzone FOV slider will not be coming to consoles. 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 and Vanguard released with a FOV slider on all platforms.

Their disappointment was amplified when Warzone Pacific devs confirmed that console players would not be receiving a FOV slider. Despite the new hardware, it seems adding a FOV slider for console players would require a massive overhaul.

With Warzone 2 confirmed and officially in development, console players are hoping that the new era of Call of Duty’s battle royale will take advantage of the next-gen hardware to launch with a FOV slider on day one.


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.

How to open Fortune’s Keep wine bottle Vault with Warzone Easter Egg

Warzone Season 4’s new Fortune’s Keep map is full of Easter Eggs to discover. Here’s how to open the wine bottle Vault.

Published

Valuable loot is waiting behind Fortune’s Keep secret wine bottle Vault, but you’ll need to complete the Easter Egg to get in. Here’s a guide to opening the Vault on Warzone Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep.

Warzone Season 4 delivered a ton of map-related content with major changes hitting Caldera and the release of Fortune’s Keep. From the Call of Duty community to top players, most seem to be enjoying the new map with an overwhelmingly positive initial reaction.

If you’re still getting to grips with the new territory, you’ll want to keep in mind that there are a ton of secrets to uncover including a Zombie summoning Easter Egg. Much like Caldera and Verdansk before it, Fortune’s Keep also has a hidden Vault to discover.

How to open wine bottle Vault on Warzone Fortune’s Keep

If you haven’t already discovered this secret Vault on your own, it’ll be worth a shot as the contents hidden in the Vault can set you up for a victory.

There will likely be several players attempting to open the Vault so you should prepare for engagements along the way, but here’s how it’s done:

  1. Find two wine bottles around the Terraces POI
  2. Head to the Keep POI
  3. Place the two bottles on the empty shelf across from the dining table
  4. The secret door will open allowing you to loot the Vault

Opening the Vault is easy enough as your most difficult task will be to locate the wine bottles. You’ll want to look on tables and shelves within the Terraces POI for the wine bottles as they’ll appear on these surfaces frequently.

There’s no denying that the Keep POI is one of the map’s high-traffic areas, so making it in and out of the Vault safely is no guarantee. The required shelf is located right next to the massive table in the dining area of Keep. Players will likely attempt to ambush you on your way out of the Vault.

Warzone Fortune’s Keep Vault Easter Egg loot

Once you get the Fortune’s Keep Vault open you could be in a hurry to loot up as quickly as possible. Here are the items you can expect to find inside the Vault:

  • $5000 cash
  • Legendary Combat Shield
  • Legendary Skal Crusher
  • Killstreak
  • 3 weapon blueprints

The Killstreak and 3 weapon blueprints will vary from match to match, but it’s safe to say that all the loot in the Vault can propel you to Warzone success, especially in the early game when those weapon blueprints will do some serious damage.

Going through the hard work of finding the wine bottles and getting the Vault open can certainly pay off. However, if you’re not interested in putting in the leg work, you can always wait for unsuspecting players to open the Keep Vault and attempt to steal their loot.

Best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4

The Warzone H4 Blixen is a great option in Season 4, especially with our recommended attachments, equipment, and Perks.

Published

on

After being introduced last season, the H4 Blixen remains a strong SMG choice in Warzone Season 4. To make the most of this devastating weapon, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout.

Warzone Season 4 is here, and it’s gone through great lengths to shake up the CoD battle royale. Raven have introduced a new Rebirth Island-style map called Fortune’s Keep, and even major Perk changes.

Vanguard weapons have been dominating the new season, and the H4 Blixen is no exception. Despite the new Marco 5 SMG coming in strong, the Blixen definitely still holds its own.

This powerful and accurate SMG could easily challenge the close to mid-range meta, but before you drop straight into the action, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: Quick

We kick off our best H4 Blixen loadout with the Recoil Booster, as the SMG is relatively slow-firing compared to other guns in its class, so this increases the fire rate and lowers the TTK. Then, we went for the Bergstrom 17″ F3 Barrel, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip to increase accuracy in mid-range fights.

Next up we opted for the Removed Stock option for a big boost in movement, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, all of which are vital at close range. In terms of Optics, we felt a standard Slate Reflector is a solid choice, but this can be switched for whichever sight you are most comfortable with.

7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags are a great choice for the H4 Blixen, as the gun’s laser-like accuracy pairs nicely with the attachment’s boost in headshot damage. Loading up with Lengthened ammo also raises the bullet velocity and lowers the TTK even further.

Finally, we recommend Perfectionist for Perk 1, to offer up one last boost in recoil control, and Quick to make you incredibly mobile in tight-nit situations.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Equipping Double Time will increase the duration of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to move across Caldera much faster, making rushing enemy teams a breeze.

The H4 Blixen is an ideal Sniper support weapon, so we recommend running Overkill to bring along a HDR or AX-50. Then, for your second option, run Tempered to help you recover to max health quicker after a gunfight.

Finally, the Amped Perk is a must to let you switch between your two primaries as quickly as possible, so you’re never caught with the wrong weapon for too long.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that can score quick kills, while Stims offer a useful health boost to get you out of a pinch.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three Slide kills in a single match 15 times.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is by hopping into Vanguard multiplayer and racking up the kills. But if you only play Warzone, a mode like Clash is probably your best bet.

Best alternatives to H4 Blixen in Warzone

If the H4 Blixen isn’t cutting it for you, there are plenty of other meta SMGs that might suit you better.

Both the MP40 and Owen Gun are two of the game’s best Sniper supports, and can both hold their own at mid-range as well.
