The best Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II console settings

While pure skill is king Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, having the right settings can definitely improve your performance. Tinkering with the settings is part of the Modern Warfare II experience, but as with most things in the series, there are an overwhelming number of options to choose from.

We spent a lot of time on the multiplayer mode and fine-tuned our settings to maximize performance. In this guide, we’ll show you the best in-game multiplayer settings, but keep in mind that many of these options come down to personal preference. Still, there are some that are objectively better than others. In addition, Infinity Ward will likely add new settings or change the way some current settings work.
