Best settings for PS5, PS4 & Xbox

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s options can give you a small advantage in multiplayer. Below we show you the best settings for your PS5, PS4 and Xbox One or Series X|S.

Important NOTE: Of course, some settings depend on your personal preference. Not all settings necessarily have to be changed. A good example of this is the field of view or sensitivity of your sticks. There is no such thing as a “best setting” for these two options, as they are entirely up to your taste. In addition, the settings refer to the CoD Modern Warfare 2 Beta. As soon as the first-person shooter is released, we will update the article.

Go to settings first “controller” and pushes R1/RB (PS/Xbox) to go to extended area to get. Here you will find the option “dead input area”. Hovert over the tab and press Square/X (PS/Xbox) to show you more.

After that you should Lower the value for “minimum left stick” and “minimum right stick”. With the default setting it can sometimes feel like there is a small “input lag”. So put it down, but only down enough that you don’t get automatic stick drift.

Under no circumstances should your aim move automatically. If you don’t know what the Deadzone is, you can check out our guide from CoD Modern Warfare at the time. He will give you more information if you are not familiar with the topic. We linked the article for you.

Likewise you should Set the value for “L2/LT button dead zone” and “R2/RT button dead zone” to 0. So that you don’t have any delay when operating your triggers.

Change these graphics options to see more

Excellent graphics are all well and good, but often have no place in a competitive environment, as you can miss important details. Especially in CoD games where the TTK (“time to kill”) is very low, every detail can make the difference between being shot and your own death.

Go to the “Graphic” option and navigated to Post-processing category. puts World Motion Blur and Weapon Motion Blur to Off. In addition, you should “Image Noise” to 0.00 and the Set Depth of Field to Off.

Under the “Details & Textures” section you can also still the On Demand Texture Streaming option set to On and Reserved Texture Cache Size set to Large place.

Changes your field of view

Go to the settings and select the Graphics tab there you can set your field of view, under the “View” section. The FoV option (field of view) was introduced with Black Ops Cold War on the consoles and you should definitely switch it over. Most players do best with a value between 90 and 100.

You can also press Square/X (PS/Xbox) with this option to select the option “Aiming Device Field of View” and “Weapon Field of View” to call. Set Aim FOV to either Independent or Affected, but this option should be adjusted to your liking. Nevertheless, we recommend that you set it to “affected” so that your individual field of view remains active while aiming. If you’re not familiar with the Field of View option, check out our linked guide for more details.

The option “Weapon Field of View” is still bugged in the beta. Normally the size of the weapon should change on your screen. But no matter what you set, the weapon always looks the same. We’ll tell you whether you should change the option in the final game when CoD MW 2 has the final release.
