The best FOV settings for Modern Warfare 2

The ideal Field of View setting for Modern Warfare 2 is between 100 and 120. This will give you the widest Field of View for the least impact on frame rates since increasing it to the maximum can cause a few stutters on lower-powered platforms.

When you first load up Modern Warfare 2, the FOV will be at its default of 80. While this isn’t a bad setting to play on, it won’t let you get the most out of the screen or the match in general.
