The FOV (field of view) setting is one of the most important adjustments you can make in Black Ops Cold War. Find out how you can spot enemies easier and increase your FOV on both PC and console. 

Being able to adjust your FOV is incredibly advantageous to any FPS player looking to increase their performance. Black Ops Cold War allows both PC and console players to adjust their FOV to whatever they like. The FOV setting will not only dictate how much you can see on the screen, but it will also impact the general feel of the game. As a result, it’s imperative that you get this setting right. 

Just like controller and mouse sensitivity, your FOV setting is another setting that can greatly impact your performance. After all, having a wider picture of your surroundings is always going to be beneficial when it comes to getting the drop on players. Here’s how you can change your FOV in Black Ops Cold War.

What is field of view?

Your FOV will play a big part in your performance.

To put it simply, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.

While it can be tempting to crank your FOV up to 120, it’s important to note that higher FOV values can actually impair your in-game vision. Your weapon, objects, and enemies will appear smaller and often look further away than they actually are.

To combat this, you’ll want to balance your field of view with one that compliments all areas of play.

How to change Black Ops Cold War FOV

Adjusting your FOV in Black Ops Cold War is incredibly simple.

In order to change your FOV in Black Ops Cold War, you’ll first need to load into the game’s lobby screen. Once you’ve done that, follow the instructions below:

  • Click on the Settings button (bottom left of the screen).
  • Select Graphics from the menu tab.
  • Scroll down to Display.

Simply adjust the bar to whatever level you want. Black Ops Cold War’s FOV is set to 80 by default, so keep adjusting it from there to see which is best for you.

While you can get by with the default 80 FOV setting, a lot of pro and casual players swear by playing at around 100 to 120. Of course, this all comes down to personal preference. However, we recommend playing on a FOV of around 105. 

This greatly increases the amount you can see, while also not dramatically impacting the overall distance of your gun when aiming down sight.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
