How to Change FOV in Hell Let Loose

Here is a workaround that will allow you to change FOV in Hell Let Loose.

Realistic games like Hell Let Loose require players to pay attention to the smallest details, which why many players have been trying to find a way to increase the game's field of view (FOV).

As of now, there is no such slider in the game's options, making life a little harder for players with 4K resolution monitors.

Fortunately, there is a way to adjust the FOV in Hell Let Loose before it becomes an official part of the game. Follow our guide below for a complete instruction.

Edit System Files to Change FOV

The only way to increase the FOV in the game is to edit a system file in the game's system folders.

Here's what you need to do:

  1. Go to "C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\HLL\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor" folder
  2. Locate and open the Engine.ini file in the notepad
  3. Add these two lines one after the other:
    • [/script/engine.localplayer]
    • AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_X
  4. Save and close the file

Instead of X put any number you want that will correspond to your monitor's aspect ratio. For example, 90 would be an ideal number for most wide screens.

However, if you're not sure which number to enter, then you can use this FOV calculator to determine the best ratio for your case.

You can also make the graphics look smoother by editing the same file as above. Just add the following lines one after the other:

  • [SystemSettings]
  • r.DefaultFeature.AntiAliasing=2
  • r.TemporalAACurrentFrameWeight=0.2
  • r.TemporalAASamples=64
  • r.TemporalAASharpness=0.8
  • r.Tonemapper.Sharpen=1

Just like with FOV you can adjust the numbers to achieve the perfect effect, but these are the most optimal settings for almost any PC.
