Guide to Increase FOV Beyond 90

How to Do It

This is only for windows!

Step 1

  • Open windows search and type “%appdata%” (without the ” marks)

Step 2

  • Open the location and head 1 step back in the folder so you would be in:
    • C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\

  • C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\PAYDAY3\Saved\Config\WindowsClient

Ofcourse your windows user name will be on the USERNAME’s place.

Step 4

  • Now open the file named “GameUserSettings.ini” with any text editor, even the windows notepad works for it.

And in there look for variable called “CameraVerticalFoV”.

So it should look like (tho numbers may vary):


So you can change the value to what ever you want. I use 110. after that make sure you save and you should be good to go.

  1. keep in mind the game uses vertical fov, so make sure to convert your preferred horizontal fov:
    60 vertical ≈ 90 horizontal at 16:9
    90 vertical ≈ 120 horizontal at 16:9
    setting your fov too high can result in a fish-eye effect and potentially motion sickness!
