Halo Infinite includes a Field of View slider on both consoles and PC, allowing players to see much more of what’s around them. However, having the wrong settings can completely throw your game off, so here are the best FOV settings for Halo Infinite.
While Warzone’s console community has been crying out for a Field of View slider, Halo Infinite gives Xbox players the option to change their FOV. This allows players to change how much they can see in front of them, expanding their peripheral view.
A higher FOV is generally regarded as more effective than a lower, as you can spot enemies at the edge of their screen that would usually be cut off.
Here are the best FOV settings for Halo Infinite on both Xbox consoles and PC.
How to change FOV in Halo Infinite
Whether you play Halo Infinite on Xbox One, Series X|S, or PC, you can change your FOV. To do this, you simply need to load up the game’s settings and adjust to slider to suit your preference.
Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Launch Halo Infinite
- Open up ‘settings’
- Select the ‘video’ tab
- Change the Field of View slider to suit your preference
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on Xbox One & Series X|S
While having a high FOV can be a significant improvement, it also comes with its own drawbacks.
The main drawback to having a high FOV is performance. Cranking your FOV to max will force the game to display much more information on-screen, which will be taxing on your system. It’s all about striking a balance – are you willing to sacrifice frame rate for a higher FOV?
With this in mind, here are the recommend Fields of View for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S Halo Infinite X|S.
Best Xbox One FOV
If you’re playing Halo Infinite on the original Xbox One, the game will likely struggle to handle the higher FOVs. We would recommend keeping your FOV in the region of 85-95.
80 is quite low for a FOV, but 90 is the perfect sweet spot that combines the benefits of a wider view without a huge hit to your performance.
Best Xbox Series X|S FOV
Fortunately, both the Xbox Series X and S consoles are significantly more powerful than the Xbox One. So if you’re playing Halo Infinite on the new generation of consoles, you should be able to comfortably run the game on 100-110 FOV.
This will give Halo Infinite a significantly wider Field of View without pushing the Xbox Series X|S to the max and affecting frames. However, if you don’t mind an extremely high FOV, you can keep cranking it and seeing how it affects performance.
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on PC
Unlike the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, there’s no way to give a definite recommendation.
If you’re running an NVIDIA RTX 20 or 30 Series GPU (or equivalent), you should have no trouble cranking the FOV all the way to max. Halo Infinite’s PC requirements aren’t too demanding, but older systems will need to strike a balance between FOV and frames.
Being conscious of hardware, here are the recommended FOVs for PC players:
- NVIDIA GTX 960 (minimum GPU): 80 FOV
- NVIDIA GTX 10 Series (recommended GPU): 95-105
- NVIDIA RTX 20 & 30 Series: 110-120
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on controller
As Halo has long been a console game, the vast majority of players will choose to game on a controller – it’ll be what feels natural.
However, aim assist comes into play when choosing your FOV. When cranking your FOV to fit more information on-screen, it will actually shrink everything to fit more. This will make far-off player models considerably smaller, and therefore more difficult to hit.
Skilled players may not have a problem with this, but for the average player, we recommend setting your FOV anywhere between 95-105. You’ll still get that extra spatial awareness without the targets shrinking too much.
Best FOV for Halo Infinite on mouse and keyboard
A large chunk of PC players will likely play Halo Infinite on a mouse and keyboard. It’s a well-known fact that a mouse offers finer aim control than a controller with aim assist, so if you’re a skilled marksman, you should have no trouble making those micro-adjustments with a high FOV.
If you’re playing Halo Infinite on a mouse and keyboard, we recommend a FOV of around 110, and you can adjust it either way to suit your preference.
Bear in mind that these are the recommended settings, and you’ll be able to find your ideal settings by experimenting.
Battlefield 2042 will also be releasing towards the end of the year, so you can check out how to play in its Open Beta in September.
