  • FOV changes for BF4

    BF4 gives us the option of taking the FOV all the way up to 120. BF3 capped it at 90. However that is not the only change in FOV.

    Normally, the FOV takes effect only when you are not scoped in with your weapon. When you do scope in, the zoom is the same regardless of your FOV setting.

    However, in BF4, scoping in with the cobra sights gives different zoom levels for different FOV settings.

    This shot is taken with an FOV of 120:


    This shot is taken with an FOV of 90:

    Personally, I do not like this change. I want a really high FOV to better my situational awareness. But I do not want it affecting my ability to aim. It IS harder to hit someone when they are a smaller target, and they are a smaller target at a higher FOV.

    But... this is how it works in every title. At least, this is how I've "seen" it since Quake 2.

    PS I play on 85 :p

      I am playing at FOV 75 at 1920x1080 (16:9) res. on a 27" LCD. Any higher and I get the "fisheye" effect which drives me nuts!

          This seems to be using the correct FOV, without screwing with it. I like it.

            All I'm saying is, the FOV settings in BF4 are more "traditional" - akin to Quake.

              Yes, agreed. I think the consoles started lowering that standard all the way down to a 60 FOV and made people sick in the process. I remember the days of 100/120 FOV playing UT!

                Well... 60 FOV is great for a 30 inch television 5 feet away from you. 60 FOV is terrible for a 20 in monitor 2 feet in front of you.


                Here's a two part series about FOV
