Call of Duty: Warzone 2 allows console players to change their FOV and users are glad to see it added to the game. Call of Duty: Warzone 2 was officially released on November 16, and gamers worldwide can now play the game on consoles and PC. Warzone 2 builds upon the original Warzone by adding new features along with improvements in other areas.
Similar to Warzone and Modern Warfare, the two sequels share a single app and gamers can download Warzone 2 as a Modern Warfare 2 game pack. However, unlike the original game, fans who simply want to play Modern Warfare 2 are not forced to download Call of Duty: Warzone 2. This move saves a considerable amount of storage space, as Activision has often been criticized for the massive file sizes of Call of Duty games. It now looks like Warzone 2 comes shipped with an important feature on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
A Reddit user named Alter771 has shared an image from the menu of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 showing off the new FOV slider. This image is from the PS5 version of Warzone 2, and it shows that players can change the FOV to up 120, with 80 being the default. A helpful picture on the right gives a preview of its impact on the gameplay, as users can now see way more of the screen. However, a disclaimer right under it mentions that changing the FOV from its default value may result in a lower frame rate and graphical issues.
Call of Duty: Warzone was missing a FOV slider, so many users seem extremely pleased with the change. Some players are curious about how this affects their in-game performance, while others claim that it will not have a significant impact. One user mentions that changing the FOV to 120 will not magically improve their gameplay capabilities and some others state that the value should be more dependent upon their TV size and how far they are sitting from it.
Many first-person shooters on consoles feature a FOV slider nowadays, so it was strange for this crucial feature to be absent from Call of Duty: Warzone. Members from the development had commented on this request a few times, confirming that the team is aware of the demand from the player base. Warzone developers gave a reason behind the lack of a FOV slider on the console version, stating that it may introduce bugs on last-gen platforms and give current-gen owners an unfair advantage.
