Will finally be able to get back to my beloved FOV 110 and shoot at things when aiming ! YES ! (Must admit I kind of got used to FOV 70)


You're stronger than me.
I've played with 110 FOV since the get-go.

I don't really get the FOV scaling hype and I ain't noob. Is this for those who run with high FOV? I run with FOV 90 and I like how it was (and is, obviously) before the patch. I ADS, so FOV goes lower, right? So what's wrong with it? I have some zoom thanks for that, so it's easier to kill the target. I ADS, it takes 1-2s and I unADS instantly. Whenever I ADS for more than 3s it's when I wait for opponent to popup and I failed to predict he isn't going to, so I unADS to check my surroundings before I decide whether to wait more or not. I don't think I ever ADS for more than 2-3s besides those kinds of situations. I can only assume that going from 120 unADS to 70ADS might not feel to comfortable just because of the transition and f... up with your brain again and again.

in bf3: sight has a set FOV of, for example, 50. is ur normal fov 60? then ur ADS is 50. Normal fov 200? Ur ads is still 50
bf4: RDS and HOLO sights have different zooms, depending on ur normal fov. i.e. normal fov 60? zoom fov 53,7. normal fov 90? zoom fov 83,7...that sorta stuff. This new option disables that, and makes it so that RDS and HOLO sights don't scale your zoom, but instead zoom to one set FOV (regardless of ur normal FOV). Just like in bf3

The bf4 system, without using this option, essentially means that playing at a higher FOV equals having LESS zoom with RDS and HOLO sights. You can now choose to tell that to GTFO :>

@angryfridge
FOV 110 has a nice advantage : small = don't shoot. And great awareness.
FOV 70 has is own great advantage : accuracy.

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)


I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you


+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

Do HOLO and RDS sights have the same FOV with this option turned on?

Is this coming to the Xbox one? I have wanted this to come back since leaving bF3. We have never had for settings on the console in the past though.

Sorry, I still don't get it :( I'm at work and I can't really check what's changed, so if you want to continue you can reply, if not I'll see it later ;)

I use Cobra RDS. So you're saying that now I was running with 90 FOV, so I've had ADS FOV of about 83,7, but with this new option I'll be able to have it more like 90 hip, 60 ads? It's confusing because OP says you get super vision with the new option disabled and you're saying that pre-patch it was alrady disabled and so they already had super vision.

...or maybe I just got it. The op is mad that they can have both 120 so more peripheral vision, but still have 60 fov when ADS and earlier if they decided to have 120 (advantage) they have to had 110 ADS (disadvantage)?
