Visibility has never been Call of Duty: Warzone‘s strongest selling point. Other battle royale games like Apex Legends have very distinct art styles that make characters easy to spot. In contrast, Warzone opts for a grittier, realistic visual design that features a lot of shadows and dark corners. However, by using Nvidia Filters it’s possible to improve visibility in Warzone.
Given the prominence of certain operators and skins in the meta, improving visibility is essential. The now infamous Roze skin is strong for the sole reason that it makes the player practically invisible in certain situations. This may be realistic as it’s camouflaged but it can still be frustrating to play against.
What are Nvidia Game Filters?
Nvidia Filters is a gameplay optimization feature that comes packaged as a part of GeForce Experience. It is a PC exclusive feature that can only be used by owners of a supported Nvidia graphics card. The vast majority of Nvidia GPUs will work including the most popular cards such as the GTX 1060, GTX 1650, and RTX 2060.
Nvidia Filters allow you to tweak various visual aspects of any supported game. The full list of supported games can be found on the official Nvidia website. Other games can benefit from Nvidia Filters too, but Warzone makes the most of it. These filters are often used to gain a competitive advantage but also serve as a useful accessibility tool for visually impaired players.
Using Nvidia Filters
Before you can use Nvidia Filters you’ll need to install GeForce Experience. Once installed, load up Call of Duty: Warzone. The next step is to open the GeForce Experience overlay. The default bind for this is ALT + Z. Then click Game Filter on the left-hand side of the overlay. Alternatively, you can press ALT + F3 to go straight to the Nvidia Filters sub-menu.
There are three preset spots to save custom settings. It’s usually fine to just have one global preset for Warzone but some players prefer to have multiple. It can be a good idea to have separate presets for Warzone and regular multiplayer as each game mode favors different settings.
It’s worth playing around with the settings in-game to see what works best for you. Depending on your monitor’s brightness, resolution, and graphics settings, slight tweaks may be useful. Before applying any Nvidia Filters it’s recommended to set the in-game brightness setting to 50. It is fine to go as high as 60, but be aware that will make certain colors look washed out.
The many variables that impact Nvidia Filters make it difficult to say exactly what the best settings are. Regardless, below are the Nvidia Filters used in Warzone that look to maximize visibility by brightening up indoor areas:
- Sharpen: 36%
