Here are the best settings that you should use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
The settings are based on the beta and more options may be added when the game launches.

Players are finally getting the opportunity to jump into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s beta and there are tons of customization options available when it comes to your gameplay, audio, and graphics settings. The game is very demanding and requires top-notch hardware if you want to play at the maximum settings. But if you are playing the game’s multiplayer modes, it is recommended to turn down the settings to get the most frames per second (FPS) possible.
