Are you looking to change your Field of View in Overwatch 2?

Changing your Field of View (FOV) in Overwatch 2 is important so that you can see your enemies.

Overwatch 2 was released on October 4, 2022.

Since its release, the game has had multiple known issues.

Some of the known issues are server disconnection, cosmetics, items, currency not showing up, and others.

In this guide, you’ll learn what is FOV and how to change your Field of Vision in Overwatch 2 for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox.

What is FOV in Overwatch 2?

FOV in Overwatch 2 is an acronym for Field of Vision.

The Field of Vision setting controls how wide your view is in the game.

If your FOV is low, you can’t view the extreme right or extreme left of your screen.

You can only view what’s straight ahead of you.

On the other hand, if your FOV is high, you’ll be able to see what’s at the extreme right or extreme left of your screen.

In most cases, a higher FOV is better because you can better spot your enemies.
