How to Fix Blurry Graphics or Textures in Modern Warfare 2

Is Modern Warfare 2 blurry in terms of graphics or textures?

Are you unable to aim properly because you can’t see the character models clearly?

If so, it will negatively affect your gameplay.

The MW2 launch, like many other launches, came with bugs, glitches, and issues.

But before you attempt to fix them, you need to ensure that your PC meets the minimum requirement of the game.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to fix blurry graphics or textures in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (MW2).

Why is MW2 blurry?

MW2 is blurry because there’s an issue with the latest Nvidia drivers (version 526.47).

Otherwise, it’s due to your resolution not matching the render resolution slider or because you’ve enabled the motion blur.

According to @BeenoxCODPC on Twitter, they said that there are stability issues with the latest Nvidia drivers.

They suggest keeping the 516.69 or 522.25 drivers until Nvidia or MW2 fixes the issue.

Many players are complaining about the game being blurry.

“Can anyone help me with a bug I’m having in #MW2? No matter what I do, my graphics look really bad and blurry with everything set to the max. It’s been really frustrating”.

“Hey @ATVIAssist, MW2 has a blurry texture bug. Everything on my end is set to Ultra and I have texture streaming on”.

How to fix blurry graphics in Modern Warfare 2

To fix blurry graphics in Modern Warfare 2, you need to match the render resolution slider to your resolution.

You also need to turn off the world and weapon motion blur.

If you’ve recently updated your Nvidia drivers, you need to roll back them back to 516.69 or 522.25.

If you can’t roll back your Nvidia drivers, you can do a clean installation to 516.69 or 522.25 via the Nvidia website.
