Warzone FOV Slider on Console Will Make the Game Toxic, Say Devs

Warzone devs, in an interview with FaZe Swagg, have stated the reasons for not adding the FOV Slider on the console for Warzone.

Warzone has seen a multitude of changes ever since the release of the Pacific update last year. With Season 2 in full swing, the Reloaded update has brought a plethora of new additions to the battle royale.

On top of this, the April Fools update has introduced the Totally Normal BR mode in the game.

However, with a decent size of player base playing the game on consoles, FOV Slider has remained one of the most talked-about issues in the community.

Luckily, Warzone devs have provided the fans with some reasons as to why it hasn’t happened yet.

Why Does Warzone Not Have FOV Slider on Console?

In an interview with FaZe Swagg, Ted Timmins, Senior Creative Director at Raven Software, and Josh Bridge, Creative Lead at Activision, have shed light on why Warzone can’t get FOV Slider on consoles.

Swagg got the opportunity to sit down for a Q&A session with the devs on their stream. The streamer, being a Warzone veteran, first wanted to know the reason why Verdansk can’t return to Warzone.

Further, Swagg asked about the FOV Slider for consoles, with a majority of the chat spamming to ask the same.

The dev stated that implementing the FOV Slider is challenging, especially knowing that a very large portion of players come from the previous-gen consoles.

“If we allow it then it’s like a slider to lower your framerate. And actually introduce potential bugs and crashes,” said Warzone dev.

Additionally, they also explored the idea of enabling the FOV Slider for the next-gen consoles. Although, the devs feel that it will widen the skill gap for the players on the previous-gen consoles and make it a toxic experience for a lot of players.

You know what they say if you didn't bring enough for the whole class... If you won't bring it to consoles then get rid of it on PC. Seems like a pretty simple solution to make the things Fair

Rusty nailed it why bringing to light the hypocrisy of allowing cheating pc players while discussing unfair advantages. Cross play should be given as a real option for those who thinks pc players have ruined the game.

Oh yes it will be a toxic experience if allowed on consoles yet they force crossplay with pc which allows it. Makes sense.
