Due in part to the hardware limitations of earlier console generations and the feature’s potential for a little but the still discernible performance hit, Xbox and PlayStation users have never had that opportunity.
But the FOV slider enters the console market with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Here’s how you can modify it.
Change Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s FOV settings
The FOV slider in Modern Warfare II is best adjusted when you’re in the menus, and doing so is a straightforward procedure. You may access the Options panel anytime by pressing the Options button on your PS4 or PS5 controller.
Select Graphics by using the right bumper to scroll over to the gear icon and see the settings subscreen.
Field of View is the first choice under the View section of the Graphics menu, which you may find there. You may change your in-game FOV with the left stick or the directional buttons.
In addition, there are the Aim-Down Sight FOV and Weapon FOV settings. There are two options for ADS FOV: Independent and affected.
Call of Duty has traditionally used an independent FOV. The FOV will change to its usual setting as you aim down your sights, pulling the picture in and giving you a closer view of your target.
However, if you choose the Affected option, the dynamic adjustment will consider the custom FOV number, allowing you to see the different areas surrounding you even when aiming.
The Weapon Field of View is your alternative, and it alters how big the model of your weapon appears on the screen. Three choices are available:
Narrow, making your gun seem more significant.
Default, when the size of your weapon is standard.
Whereas your weapon will be smaller than the other screen on a wide screen.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s default setting for the weapon FOV is Narrow. However, you may alter it at any moment. For all of your other FOV options, the same holds.
A game will allow you to observe how FOV alters how you see the game in a more realistic setting. Just don’t count on staying motionless on the menus for too long.
