There are several settings menus that players will want to navigate and make adjustments to in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. However, for PC players, arguably the most important menu to change is the Graphics settings. These settings have a drastic effect on how a player’s game runs and looks, both of which are vital to enhance a player’s experience in-game.

Below, we’ll list all of the Graphics settings in Warzone 2 and what our recommended setting for each is. These settings aim to increase frames per second while keeping graphical fidelity high.

With these settings, players should see a slight bump to their FPS. Their game should also look roughly the same in terms of visuals. Our settings also include possible fixes to stuttering and weapon camos looking dull, especially Gold. However, if players don’t care about how their game looks, they can reduce most of the settings to their lowest value. We suggest leaving both Shader Quality and Spot Cache on their recommended value, though.
