Console players feel suffocated by the limited FOV controls in COD Warzone

Since both the new and old generations of consoles like the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X & S don’t support customizable FOV settings in Call of Duty Warzone, console players are feeling left behind.

Higher FOV and frame rates offer a better competitive experience while competing in an FPS game like Call of Duty. The lower FOV settings were not a problem in the past since there was no cross-play. However, the situation is quite different right now as most of the COD titles do support cross-play with different consoles and even PC.

The main problem, in this case, is the PC player base as they can control their FOV sliders to their heart’s content. On top of that, they can also utilize high refresh rate monitors paired with high FPS to get an edge over their opponents.

NO FOV settings for console

Even though the recent COD game gave players an option to play at 120 fps in the next-generation consoles like the PS5 and the Xbox Series X&S, Warzone still doesn’t have a FOV slider. And as a result, console players can’t really see their opponents out of their FOV range and that is actually quite suffocating for console players.

While PlayStation lets its player base turn of cross-play if they want to, Xbox players don’t have that option. Some fans complained that the console version feels like tunnel vision compared to PC.

The overall balance gets totally ruined as console players still have no real control over their play sessions. That may change with future titles since starting with Cold War Activision seems to be giving its player base more options.
