How do you change the Metro Exodus FOV on PC?

4A has decided to leave out an FOV slider again in Metro Exodus for some annoying reason. Where do you go to change it? What files do I need to edit?

File editing is required to change it. Agree, they should know better and add a slider. Anyway, to change it you need to hunt down the user.cfg file which should be somewhere like C:\User\yourname\Saved Games\metro exodus\xxxxxx\user.cfg.

Once opened in a text editor, look for the following entry which will need tweaked.

r_base_fov

You will probably have to mess with these for a bit to get it to where you want the FOV. Apparently, it used vFOV so you may want to try a number starting at around 70 but don’t push it too high because weird stuff will likely happen 🙂

Other settings to check for motion blur are.

r_game_mblur_scale
r_blur_level

Setting these to zero might be an idea.
