JGOD’s Best Warzone Settings for Graphics & Performance in Season 5 Reloaded

Here are the settings that pros are using to get the most out of Warzone in Season 5 Reloaded.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 kicked off in August, and alongside a selection of exciting map and weapon changes, the weather and lightning on both Caldera and Rebirth Island received a revamp.

The dark clouds and shadowy corners have been swapped out for sunlight and vibrant colors. Sure this is a welcome update, but it does mean adjusting your in-game settings if you want to keep up with the best of the best.

Luckily for us, popular Warzone creator JGOD has uploaded a new YouTube video revealing his favorite graphic settings for both visuals and performance.

And there you have it! Now you’re ready to pick up some wins in Warzone Season 5 and look good doing it.

Many Warzone players were recently forced to crank up their brightness settings for the limited-time Rebirth Island After Dark mode. Now that this has concluded, it’s the perfect time to optimize your graphics for the remainder of Season 5.

Remember though, as with any other settings, these graphic options also come down to personal preference. If you notice something bugging you, don’t be afraid to experiment with slightly different values – it won’t kill your performance.

In his video, JGOD does reference this in-depth tutorial by ALBU Performance if you’d like to fully customize your own settings. However, if you’d rather stick to something tried and tested, you can copy JGOD’s exact settings above.

Don’t forget to tune in to the Call of Duty: Next showcase event for all the juicy details about Warzone 2.

After all, we just got a new leak that finally revealed the Warzone 2.0 release date – and it’s closer than we thought!
