The game ran at 54-60 FPS for the lowest parts, 70FPS for medium level, and 80-85FPS were the highest Framerates recorded for the given settings. You can dial down the shadows for more FPS boost. We used MSI Afterburner to test the Framerates as we found it as a reliable source for testing. Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below, and we will see you soon in the next guide!

    I am trying to come up with BEST SETTING FOR cod COLD WAR FOR BEST fps, BUT i ALSO WANT THE BEST CHANCE TO SEE THE ENEMY SO I DONT WANT TO GO TOO LOW, HAVE ANY SUGGESTION

    1. I have personally put Texture Quality to High and Special Effect Quality to Medium. The rest of all the settings are either low or disabled. I am more of a PVP player so I need as many frames as possible. Here is the in-game screenshot: http://prntscr.com/vo5vt6 For your settings, I would recommend that you keep FOV from 100-110, uncap framerates, keep settings from Medium to high except for the shadows and motion blur. Turn up the Anti-aliasing quality to High. The Rest should be Low or Disabled for better performance.
