If you’re considering using NVIDIA DLSS in Warzone since the latest fix for setting, JGOD’s latest video explains whether it’s now worth it or not.

There are loads of settings in Warzone that can be overwhelming to some, especially new players. Knowing which ones are essential and which ones aren’t needed can be vital to the player’s experience.

The latest surprise patch issued a fix for the NVIDIA DLSS issue that was breaking players’ aim, but is it now worth using the setting or not?

Before the latest patch, which seems to have fixed the NVIDIA DLSS bug, players noticed that the setting would create a misalignment between your reticle and where the bullets would actually go, depending on your resolution.

JGOD has released a video explaining how it works after the patch and which setting will be the best for you, depending on your setup.

JGOD tested each of the NVIDIA DLSS settings in-game, concluding that they all now work as they should, with all of the bullets hitting exactly where your reticle is placed.

The Warzone content creator then went through the ins and outs of all the different NVIDIA DLSS settings: Quality, Balanced, Performance, and Ultra Performance, and which ones are best for your set up.

Ultimately, these settings are down to preference and how powerful your setup is. As JGOD states, the best NVIDIA setting is essentially “case by case.”

However, JGOD says that if you feel comfortable with the number of frames per second you are getting with NVIDIA DLSS, you should leave the setting disabled. JGOD even made a chart that shows the specifics for each setting so that players can get a better idea of what each of them does.

NVIDIA DLSS settings

If you want better image quality, the Quality NVIDIA DLSS setting is the one you should be using, giving you a better resolution over frame rate, but at least 2k gaming is recommended.

Balanced is for those who would like high image quality and high fps performance, which can be good for those who want to retain fps and not experience blurriness.

Performance is for those who want to prioritize performance over resolution, providing players with more frames per second at the expense of resolution. It is recommended for those who are capable of 4k gaming.

Finally, Ultra Performance is for those with an 8k set-up that can deal with extremely high frame rates of 180. This setting is for those who want a huge frame rate boost.

What JGOD recommends is to “either go disabled, or go Quality, if you’re just a frame chaser you can go these routes (Performance, Ultra Performance), but expect a little bit of blurriness.”

That’s all on JGOD‘s advice for what NVIDIA DLSS settings you should be using. For more, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our recent article on Warzone & Cold War Season 4.

How to fix Warzone crashing & freezing issues on Xbox

Warzone has suffered a number of issues since the Pacific update on Xbox, so here’s how to stop it from crashing and freezing.

Xbox players have been suffering from game-breaking crashing and freezing errors since Warzone’s Pacific update, but one simple solution can fix many of the issues.


Warzone Pacific Season 1 brought many changes the community was looking for, adding a brand-new map, a working anti-cheat, and removing Stopping Power once and for all. However, it’s also brought some of the worst glitches Warzone has ever seen, particularly on Xbox.

Thanks to glitches, Xbox players must have a Gold Subscription to play, have lost their 120 FPS mode, and can’t even play the game because of constant crashing and freezing issues.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should lessen the amount of freezing and crashing issues you’re experiencing.

To stop Warzone from crashing and freezing, don’t hit the Xbox home button while the Warzone application is open.

We recommend creating an Xbox Party before launching Warzone and then using Warzone’s Social tab to invite your friends to games.

This solution comes directly from Raven Software’s Trello board, where they acknowledged that “Players are reporting an issue where pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”

Raven said that the issue is caused by players hitting the Xbox home button twice, but many players have reported that issues crop up by pressing it once. So we recommend steering clear of the Xbox button and not pressing it at all.

Whether this will fix the issue where players can’t launch the game at all remains to be seen, but it should help out players who suffer from freezing and crashing while playing.

Raven Software has confirmed they’re investigating a number of Xbox Warzone glitches such as pressing the Xbox button, performance issues, and Xbox players’ Rebirth Island wins not tracking.

The next major Warzone update will be Season 2 in February, so hopefully, this update brings many much-needed fixes.

Warzone players beg Raven to add custom controller binding

Warzone players are calling on Raven Software to add options that allow them to fully customize their controller binds.

Frustrated with having to use Warzone’s preset controller options, players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options.

How players can customize their controller bindings varies from game to game, with games such as Fortnite giving players full control, while Warzone offers very little in terms of button layout.

With forced crossplay and repeated slide canceling ruining their controllers, Warzone console players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options that allow them to configure their controls exactly how they’d like.

Players with unofficial controllers or the Xbox Elite controllers can fully customize every button. This lets them tailor their Warzone controls to their preference, but those who have first-party controllers are stuck with what Raven Software offers them.

Asking Raven Software, “where the hell is custom controller binding?” Reddit user TimewornTinman explained how they want to completely swap around their controls to keep their thumb on the right stick as much as possible. But, Warzone’s pre-set controls don’t allow them to get it exactly how they would like.

While many players suggested they purchase a third-party controller or buy a back button attachment, the issues would be fixed by giving players full access to their button layouts. One player called it a “basic feature” that’s been “ignored.”

PlayStation does give the option to change button binds through the Accessibility menus, allowing each button to be swapped for another. However, this applies the new binds across every aspect of your PlayStation experience, which can make it extremely difficult to navigate menus and switch to other games.

Console Warzone players have also been desperate for an FOV slider, which may arrive with the PS5 and Xbox Series update that’s confirmed to be in development. Perhaps Raven will give players more controller options when this update eventually arrives.

Warzone is so broken on Xbox consoles that players can’t even open the game

Warzone’s Pacific update has caused a ton of bugs and glitches for Xbox users and now, they can’t even launch of the game.

Warzone Pacific Season 1 breathed new life into Call of Duty’s battle royale, but a constant slew of bugs and glitches have ruined the experience for many. It’s now got so bad that Xbox players can’t even launch the game.

Fed up with Verdansk and a stale meta, Warzone players were desperate for the game to finally move to Caldera and introduce all of Vanguard’s weapons. However, it’s been far from smooth sailing, as the update broke Modern Warfare and introduced some of the most game-breaking glitches Warzone has ever seen.

Warzone’s developers have confirmed they’re working hard to get the game back on track, but for Xbox players, change can’t come soon enough. A recent update has completely locked some Xbox players out, preventing them from even launching the game.

Unfortunately, Xbox players appear to have got the short end of the stick with Warzone’s Pacific update. There’s a bug forcing Xbox players to have a Gold Subscription to play, they’ve lost access to the 120 FPS mode, and now, they can’t even launch the game.

Xbox players are reporting that they’ve been trapped in an endless loop of restarts when trying to launch Warzone. Reddit user Darknesgamer36 shows that after getting through the ‘Connecting to Xbox Live’ screen, Warzone reboots itself and they need to go through it again and again.

Darknesgamer36 isn’t alone, with several players saying they’ve been getting the exact same issue. Ramuh-DH said it happens to “nearly everyone on xbox consoles.”

Other Xbox players have reported different, but equally frustrating, issues. They’ve said the game constantly crashes, their guns go invisible, and they can’t join their friends.

One user said that it took “literally 56 minutes to get in one game,” and if they went back to the main menu at any point, the problem returned. Another user said that whenever they tried to queue into a match, “it would kick whoever wasn’t host and restarted the game every time.”

There appears to be a temporary solution, though: don’t touch the Xbox button on the controller while Warzone is open. Warzone devs have actually acknowledged this on their Trello board, saying they’re investigating an issue where “pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”

But, this likely won’t help those players who can’t even launch Warzone in the first place. Raven have several cards for Xbox issues on their Trello board, so hopefully, Xbox players will have the same experience as everyone else soon.
