  • Call of Duty: Warzone's recent update that introduced DLSS is adversely affecting player aim.
  • The community is reporting scope accuracy issues following the recent update and Raven Software is already working on a fix.
  • There is no official word on when an update will be deployed but turning off DLSS until then is recommended.

Call of Duty: Warzone recently received an update that enabled DLSS for Nvidia graphics card owners. DLSS or ‘Deep Learning Super Sampling’ allows NVIDIA cards to offer better framerates and sharper graphics in games. Turning it on is recommended in all games as it gives you much better performance but if you play Call of Duty: Warzone, you might want to consider turning it off. The update that introduced DLSS to Warzone is affected by a bug which negatively impacts player aim. Raven Software is aware of the issue and is working on a fix for an upcoming Warzone patch. 

There is no official word on when an update will be issued but it is recommended to leave DLSS off temporarily and use Dynamic Resolution instead if you want higher framerates.  

How to Turn Off DLSS in Call of Duty: Warzone 

Here is how you can turn off DLSS in Call of Duty: Warzone. 

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone 
  2. Click on Graphics
  3. Scroll down to ‘NVIDIA DLSS’ 
  4. Click on ‘Off’ 

However, it is recommended to turn the setting back on when a fix is deployed that is affecting player aim in-game. You can do this by using the same method or by choosing Ultra Performance, Performance, Balanced, or Quality as your preferred option. All four options are fine if you are playing at 1080p. For 2K or higher resolutions, it is recommended to play on Performance or Ultra Performance options. 

How to Enable Dynamic Resolution in Call of Duty: Warzone

Turning on DLSS offered players a way to increase framerates in Call of Duty: Warzone but with DLSS currently being bugged, there are other alternatives that you can check out. Here is how you can enable dynamic resolution in Warzone to improve your framerate. 

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone 
  2. Click on Graphics 
  3. Scroll down to ‘Dynamic Resolution’
  4. Choose your desired FPS

It is recommended to choose 60, 120, 144, or 240 FPS, depending on your monitor and computer specifications. If the target resolution is too high, the graphics quality will go down drastically. DLSS does the exact same thing, but there is dedicated hardware in NVIDIA graphics cards that make games look sharp and not downscaled. Using Dynamic Resolution can be a temporary fix until Raven Software the DLSS issues in Warzone.
