How to increase FPS in Warzone 2

Crank up your frames

While Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has been generally well-received at its launch, there have been some issues that are causing players trouble. One of those issues has been an annoyance since the original launch of Warzone, and it’s specific to PC players. Warzone, and now Warzone 2, are infamous for tanking a PC player’s FPS (frames per second). Because the map is so large and detailed and there’s so much going on at one time, FPS takes a serious hit whenever players drop into a match. Luckily, in Warzone 2, there are a few different ways to increase a player’s FPS.

Though players’ FPS will largely depend on their system’s hardware, most users should be able to hit a minimum of 60 FPS. This is mainly done by altering the in-game graphics settings, which is what we’ll be going over today. These settings should provide players with the most FPS possible while keeping their game from looking like a blurry mess.

Increase your FPS in Warzone 2

We’ll be listing the in-game graphics settings from start to finish. Players can find these settings by going to Warzone 2, opening the settings, and then finding the graphics tab.
