Modern Warfare 2 is bringing in the third-person mode for the first time in CoD history. Here’s how to play in third-person mode and adjust the FOV slider.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 introduces a third-person game mode alongside many new features in-game. This is the first time CoD players get a TPV mode for their multiplayer modes. Previously, TPV was only present in CoD WW2’s multiplayer lobby.

There is a dedicated third-person game mode playlist that contains the classic game modes. Furthermore, players can also modify their field of view for both FPS and TPS game modes from the in-game setting. Here’s how to play the third-person mode and adjust the FOV slide in-game.

How to Play Third Person Mode

The third-person game mode is available in the in-game main menu. Players can simply select the playlist and queue for the game modes. However, the view switches to a first-person perspective during a gunfight. Activision has finally added this mode so players can properly take a look at their skins purchased from the bundles.

How to Adjust FOV Slider

Players can now modify their field of view settings in both console and PC. Here’s how to adjust the FOV slider in-game.

  • Boot up Modern Warfare 2 Beta.
  • Head over to the “Settings.”
  • Then move to the “Graphics” tab.
  • Scroll to the “View” section.
  • Now adjust the slider to the desired FOV.

However, for console players, it is recommended not to exceed 110 FOV as the aim assist strength will decrease for long-range gunfights. As for the weapon field of view, we recommend players set it to “Wide.” It makes the weapon look smaller compared to its standard FOV view.
