Best PC Key Bind Setting
Keybinds: Command Shortcuts
Key bindings are keyboard shortcuts that are used to customize your gameplay! COD: Modern Warfare has standard keybinds for PC but personalizing your own keyboard shortcuts can lead to better performance later on.
Recommended PC Key Binds
|Sprint/Tactical Sprint/Steady Aim/Change Zoom||L-Shift|
|Mount||Mouse Side Button, or T|
|Melee||Mouse Wheel Button|
|Use Lethal Weapon||G|
|Use Field Upgrade||X|
Hold For Crouch/Sprint And Toggle for Prone
You can transition between sprinting and crouching immediately by releasing a button in Hold mode. This is essential when you encounter an opponent while moving. When prone, you're usually taking a peek or trying to hide, so the toggle mode will be easier to use in this situation.
Adjust Your Keybinds Accordingly
As players have different preferences when it comes to playing games, it is recommended to start from these keybinds, and then move around keybinds depending on your preference.
Best PS4 & Xbox Control Setting
PS4 and XBOX Controller Default Layout
Test around PS4 and XBOX's default layout to get the hang of things first.
Increase Your Controller's Sensitivity
By default, your controller's Horizontal & Vertical sensitivity will be set at 3. Try dialing it up to a higher sensitivity so you can look around and aim faster. This will help when you need to make a quick turn, and shoot someone behind you!
Lower Sensitivity To A Comfortable Level After Testing
If you feel like your sensitivity needs to be higher or lower after playing a few games, adjust accordingly. Then play a few games again, and adjust. Do this until you find the best sensitivity for you.
Turn On Aim Assists
There is no shame in turning on the aim or targeting assist to help you play better. Choose Standard or Focusing presets when in doubt.
Enable Auto Sprint
There is an autosprint feature that will help you continuously sprint. There are some cases when sprinting manually for awhile will cause you to stop sprinting from time to time. Enabling this setting should alleviate this.
Enable, or Disable Crossplay
Crossplay is a feature where the player can choose whether or not to play a same server with other platforms such as PC. Enable, or disable Crossplay at Account as you see fit.How To Crossplay Guide Here
Best Graphic Settings
Graphic settings are an important element that needs to be adjusted immediately in CoD. In a game that has fast-paced gameplay, you need to see things right away to react to the situation accordingly!
4K & Ultra-Widescreen Support For The PC
Modern Warfare can be played in 4K resolution, allowing you to see highly detailed visuals provided that your monitor can display 4K. The game is also compatible with Ultra-Widescreen monitors and multiscreen setups.
Find Balance Between Performance And Visual Effect
Aim For 60 FPS First
Frame rate are the key factor in any firefght. You won't win if you lag/ freeze whenever you meet an opponent no matter how pretty your displays are. Scale down visual effects until you reliably have 60 fps in most situations.
Turn Off Settings That Causes Distractions
Some settings such as motion blurs are detrimental to your fighting performance as they can cause distractions. Disable these settings to gain the upper hand in split-second fights.
Recommended Graphic Settings:
|Field of View||As wide as possible (max 120°)||Having a higher field of view gives you more awareness of your surroundings.|
|World & Weapon Motion Blur||Disabled||Faster target acquirement without the blur|
|Texture Resolution||Very Low||Low texture setting has minimal effect on your ability to find & acquire targets but increases performance|
|Custom Framerate Limit||Enabled - set to 60||No need to burn out your hardware for frame rate of over 60|
|Particle Quality||Low||Particles has a higher performance hit. Lower it to gain better performance|
|Bullet Impacts||Enabled||Bullet impacts are helpful in determining where the enemy fire is coming from, so leave this on.|
|Cache Spot & Sun Shadows||Enabled||Increased rendering speed if your memory can handle it.|
Adjust The Brightness Setting
The Brightness will be the key setting that you need to adjust to help you play better in the game. Having it set a bit brighter will help you easily spot enemies in dark places. However don't set it too high as the screen may be a bit blinding!
Best Audio Settings
Sound matters a lot as they can tell you when enemies are getting close. Gaming headsets or earphones with microphone are recommended especially when you play multiplayer.
Lower Music Volume, Increase SFX Volume
Try to lower elements in the game that can distract you from playing, like Music Volume, while turning up SFX Volume to hear audio cues like gunfire, footsteps more clearly!
