What Is FOV in Valorant?

FOV or Field of View is the range of what you see on your screen while you're ingame. Lower FOV means you see less, higher means you see more. In a game such as Valorant having the highest possible FOV can be a game changer.

The benefits of having a higher FOV are:

  • A better point of View
  • Much easier to spot Agents
  • Your reflexes and aim-switch might improve

The default FOV in Valorant is 103, which is quite high compared to the average one of 90 that most users have. For example, if you decide to change the Valorant game ratio to 4:3 it will decrease to 71, which means you will be playing at a disadvantage as you will see fewer elements on your screen.

How To Change Field of View In Valorant

Valorant doesn't have the option to directly change your Field of View in the settings. As we said earlier, the 103 FOV is fairly decent and more than enough, but not many people are satisfied with it. If you wish to raise/lower it you will have to use different solutions outside the game to get the optimal FOV to get the most frags in the game.

What Resolution Do Pros Use In Valorant

Last but not least, let's share the best possible one with you. The resolutions differ from player to player and mostly depend on their comfort FoV.

Tenz uses these Display Settings:

  • Resolution: 1920x1080
  • Aspect Ratio: 16:9
  • Aspect Ratio: Method: Fill
  • Display Mode: Windowed Mode

On the other hand, this is what s1mple uses:

  • Resolution: 1280x960
  • Aspect Ratio: 4:3
  • Scaling Mode: Stretched
  • Display Mode: Full Screen

Notice the difference? Tenz is using the in-game screen settings, while s1mple opts out to change the FoV via the Nvidia Control panel. S1mple's FoV has the maximum possible FPS which is recommended for lower-end PCs.

If Aspas is undecided about his FoV settings, don't worry if you are. Try all of them and see how you do in practice or a custom lobby. You will need time to adapt to any of them, so don't rush with your decisions and take your time.
