This is a detailed Call of Duty (COD): Warzone best graphics settings guide. These settings will get you decent FPS as well as smoothen the performance.These will be the main goal for these settings.
Cross Reference with our system specification to draw a comparison as to how it will run before you implement the settings in-game.
You should also make sure you have the minimum hardware and software to run the game in the first place to avoid any conflicts.
COD: Warzone Best Graphics Settings Guide for FPS [PC]
These are the Best COD Warzone Graphics settings as per my system specs:
- Custom Framerate Limit: Unlimited (This limits the frame rates at which the game is rendered on screen)
- Display Mode: Fullscreen (Settings this to fullscreen is the optimal setting to do at this point. Results in the best frame rates)
- Texture Resolution: Low (Resolution on texture details in the game. Since this impacts GPU and CPU usage, set this to Low)
- Sync every frame (V-Sync): Disabled (Syncs monitor’s refresh rate with the games’ frame rate. Turning this off results in the highest FPS possible)
- Display Gamma: 2.2 sRGB
- Texture Anisotropic Filtering: Normal (Volumetric settings are tweaked using this one)
- Particle Quality: High (Quality of small particles in the game. High results in detailed textures of particles. Does not impact CPU/GPU usage that much)
- Aspect Ratio: Automatic (Play on wide 4:3 or normal 16:9 ratio depending on the monitor’s default settings)
- NVIDIA highlights: Disabled (Takes up a tiny amount of FPS to run this in the background. Set this to OFF for the best experience)
- Bullet Impacts and Sprays: Disabled (Detailing related to bullet marks on the screen)
- Tesselation: Disabled (Reflection of glasses, water, etc)
- Shadow Map Resolution: low (Resolution of shadows in the map. Using High settings will result in high CPU usage and FPS drops)
- Cache Spot Shadows: Enabled
- Cache Sun shadows: Enabled
- Particle Lighting: Normal
- Direct X Raytracing: Disabled (Only enable this for 30 Series cards. Even if you have an RTX 20series card, try not to use this one since it is not that effective for 20 series)
- Ambient Occlusion: Disabled (Environmental lighting and optics settings)
- Screen Space Reflection: Disabled (SSR takes up decent resources so keep this off for medium-end systems)
- Anti-Aliasing: Filmic SMAA T2X ( 1X or Disabled if more FPS needed)
- Depth of Field: Disabled (Personal taste as well as performance boost for me)
- Filmic Strength: 0.00
- World Motion Blur: Disabled (I do not recommend Motion Blur unless the game is super optimized and you are playing single-player mostly)
- Weapon Motion Blur: Disabled (Same reasoning as above but applicable for weapons)
- Film Grain: o.oo
- Screen Refresh Rate: Native
- Render Resolution: 100 (Keep this at 100% to avoid blurry or unclear graphics. Lowering this will boost FPS but the game does not look good at all)
System Specs used to test
- CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
- GPU: GTX 1660 6GB
- RAM: 16GB DDR4
- HDD: SEAGATE BARRACUDA 1TB (7200rpm)
The game is tested at 1080p to reach the basic mark of 60 or above Frame Rates.
Here are the minimum specs needed to play COD Warzone
Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit (Service Pack 1) or Windows 10 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
Memory: 8GB RAM
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 / GeForce GTX 1650 or Radeon HD 7950
DirectX: DirectX 12
Here are the recommended specs needed to play COD Warzone
Operating System: Windows 10 64 Bit (latest Service Pack Available)
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X processor
Memory: 12GB RAM
HDD: 175GB HD space
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / GTX 1660 or Radeon R9 390 / AMD RX 580
The Above settings managed to fetch me well beyond 60+FPS in even the most graphically intense situations. If you want more juice out of the game, try turning off the Antialiasing, but make sure you do not use any kind of blur effects in the game.
If you do, there will be a lot of graphical noise to deal with. But generally stating, these settings should be enough to make your game run smoothly and at decent FPS. Also, as I mentioned above, lowering the render resolution will also help in boosting FPS.
But it will make the game bad and less enjoyable. This is up to personal preference and if you want to get more FPS at the cost of gaming experience, lower this by all means.
