Will Modern Warfare have a FOV slider? Call of Duty dev responds

Infinity Ward’s Senior Communications Manager, Ashton Williams, has responded to fan requests for a field of view slider in Modern Warfare, following the release of the 2v2 Gunfight Alpha on August 22. 

The Gunfight Alpha dropped slightly earlier than its scheduled August 23 release date. It gives the majority of players their first chance to get their hands on one part of Infinity Ward’s latest installment in the Call of Duty series. 

As is customary with an early build of the game, a Fortnite players desperate for one added. While PC players have the option in CoD, console players have long been craving its addition. 

Reddit user ‘xxihostile’ made the enquiry on August 22, stating: “I’m begging you guys, can you add aim down sight sensitivity and FOV slider on console”. They also say that both features help their ability to game given their disability. 

Ashton Williams, community manager at Infinity Ward, replied on August 22. “We can look into an ADS slider but no promises,” she replied. “I know FOV slider on console is a huge point of conversation, but we won’t be having one this game.”


ADS sensitivity option would allow players to determine how responsive their game is to movement while they are aiming down sights with a weapon, something Williams states is a possibility. 

However, the news about no FOV slider is definite, and advocates of one on console will be left disappointed for another year. 

One Reddit user sarcastically responded: “Great. So PC players get even more advantage now. Cool. Why can’t we just have the option?” Given Modern Warfare will feature crossplay, it appears to be another advantage for PC players. 


Others pointed out that it’s likely due to console being worse at handling higher frame rates, as well as stuttering issues. 

While the news definitely disappointed some CoD fans, we can expect to see a number of issues ironed out over the course of the Alpha.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
