Games do not always get installed with the most ideal settings set as the default. If you are unsure what the most optimal settings for Warzone 2.0 are, this article contains some suggestions you can consider.

Just like the original Warzone Warzone 2.0 definitely needs a bit more optimization.  While there are methods that can minimize lag and frame drops , there are also settings that the community has recommended as an alternative fix until Raven Software  and Infinity Ward release their own solution.

All settings options that have not been mentioned are left as what the game has defaulted them to. ​​
