The best PC graphic settings for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0

Display Settings

These settings will set up your monitor options so that they fit with the one you’re using while providing a stable refresh rate.

  • Display Mode: Fullscreen Exclusive (other options can negatively impact performance)
  • Display Monitor: Your main monitor or, even better, the monitor with the highest refresh rate
  • Display Adapter: Select your graphics card
  • Screen Refresh rate: The maximum for your chosen monitor (144hz, 240hz, etc.)
  • Display Resolution: The best option is 1080p. If you have a monster GPU, you could try 1440p, but 1080p will provide more FPS even then. Stay away from 4K, it will tank your FPS.
  • Dynamic Resolution: Off
  • Aspect Ratio: Automatic (16:9 or 16:10, depending on your monitor)
  • V-Sync Gameplay: Off (unless your refresh rate is 60hz or lower)
  • V-Sync Menu: Off
  • Custom Frame Rate Limit: Custom
  • Gameplay Custom Frame Rate Limit: Set to your monitor’s refresh rate + 10.
  • Menu Custom Frame Rate Limit: 60-90
  • Out of focus Custom Frame Rate Limit: 30
  • Display Gamma: 2.2 (sRGB)
  • Brightness: Set to your preference.
  • Focus Mode: Off

Quality Settings

These settings will determine the appearance and detail of models and the environment. This is where we’ll scrimp to elevate performance and FPS count.

  • Quality Presets: Custom
  • Render Resolution: 100
    • Upscaling / Sharpening: FidelityFX CAS
    • FidelityFX CAS Strength: 75 (Slight sharpening for better clarity)
  • Anti-Aliasing: SMAA T2X
  • Anti-Aliasing Quality: Normal (if your PC is older, go with Low instead)
  • Video Memory Scale: 90 (This will use the most GPU’s vRAM it can for the game)
  • Texture Resolution: Normal
  • Texture Filter Anisotropic: High
  • Nearby Level of Detail: Low
  • Distant Level of Detail: High
  • Clutter Draw Distance: Short
  • Particle Quality: High (lower settings can omit some gameplay information)
  • Particle Quality Level: Low
  • Bullet Impacts & Sprays: On
  • Shader Quality: Medium
  • Tessellation: Off
  • Terrain Memory: Max
  • On-Demand Texture Streaming: Off
  • Streaming Quality: Low
  • Volumetric Quality: Low
  • Deferred Physics Quality: Low
  • Water Caustics: Off (can save a lot of FPS)
  • Shadow Map Resolution: Low
  • Spot Shadow Quality: Low
  • Cache Spot Shadows: On
  • Spot Cache: Low
  • Cache Sun Shadows: On
  • Particle Lighting: Low
  • Ambient Occlusion: Off
  • Screen Space Reflections: Off
  • Static Reflection Quality: Low
  • Weather Grid Volumes: Off
  • Nvidia Reflex Low Latency: On
  • Depth of Field: Off
  • World Motion Blur: Off
  • Weapon Motion Blur: Off
  • Film Grain: 0.00

View Settings

These settings will help with clarity and first-person vision when you’re in the game.

  • Field of View: 100-110 (Play around to see which number you prefer. The lower number narrows your view, but can save you a bit of FPS.)
  • ADS Field of View: Affected
  • Weapon Field of View: Default
  • 3rd Person Field of View: 80-100 (same argument as for FoV above)
  • Vehicle Field of View: Default
  • 1st Person Camera Movement: Least (50%)
  • 3rd Person Camera Movement: Least (50%)
  • 3rd Person ADS Transition: Preference
  • Default Spectator Camera: Preference

A lot of these settings can be dependent on the specific components in your PC. If you have a higher-grade CPU and GPU, you can try pushing some of these settings higher, but that will always run the risk of tanking your FPS. So if your goal is to have the smoothest, most competitive experience possible, then these settings will help you out.

I have been into gaming since the days of Sega Mega Drive and Amiga. Over the years in gaming, I have raided at a high level, completed rare achievements, coached other players, and written about games since 2016. Whether it’s been clicking heads; developing cities, colonies, and empires; or commanding parties of adventurers; I’ve always prided myself on being able to understand the underlying mechanics of games. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a variety of activities and hobbies, including playing with my pup Astra, working out, as well as crafting, painting, and leatherwork.
