if you were war zone Play around for a while, especially console gamers who prefer to jump into battle from the comfort of their couch rather than a gaming chair, then you might realize that there’s a discussion going on around Field of View (FOV) slider.
For those who don’t know, the simple description that FOV refers to is the quantity you can see on the screen at any time. Warzone’s gripe on this topic is the huge discrepancy between what players on consoles can see compared to players on PCs.
For now, console players are able to max out their FOV to 80, while PC players can increase it all the way up to 120, giving them a 50% larger view of their surroundings. In a game like Warzone, especially close-range kill times are fast, which gives PC players a huge advantage.
To clearly show the problem, Reddit user Maximus0066 posted a photo of the game running on both PC and console, with their characters standing in the same position. The difference was immediately apparent, with PC players able to make out the full back wall of the room, while console players couldn’t see anything out of the window.
Now, this problem has been solved before. Creative Director Ted Timmins answered questions about FOV on consoles back in December. While it didn’t provide any specific information on if or when the update was, it did confirm that the team was aware of the concerns.
Definitely aware of this, especially as I speak as a console player.
The problem is that if I literally post anything, it’s going to be an unfair title to me or the team. I just hope these patch notes make it clear; you are being heard and we are.

Considering that Caldera has just been released, and more pressing issues like stealth skins and server stability may be the priority right now, it’s safe to say we’ll have to be patient and wait for more information on the matter at this moment.
Having said that, this is still a major issue and one that really needs to be addressed. The FOV slider has appeared in Call of Duty: Pioneer, and hopefully the good folks working on Warzone will find out in time too.
