You need a wide view when you’re surrounded by alien bugs, and you might be curious about how to set up the Starship Troopers: Extermination FOV for a much better experience. There’s an easy method you can use via the Settings in the Main Menu, but this is pretty limited, and there is a way to increase it beyond the maximum FOV limit.
Read on and this guide will teach you how to change the FOV in Starship Troopers: Extermination to whatever value you want.
How to change FOV in Starship Troopers: Extermination?
Here are the steps to change your FOV (field of view) in Starship Troopers: Extermination:
- Step 1: Start the game and go to the Main Menu
- Step 2: Click on Settings
- Step 3: Click on Video
- Step 4: Adjust the Field of View slider
The Starship Troopers: Extermination FOV slider is set to 80 by default. You can increase your FOV up to 100, which may still not be enough. It’s the maximum FOV value for the game, but there is a way to increase it further if you want it to be.
Start a match and then press (`) which will bring up the console menu. Type in “fov” and then press the spacebar. Now input the number you wish to set your FOV to. Your screen will automatically set the FOV slider to that value, even if it’s beyond 100. This method doesn’t save, unlike changing your name in your Steam profile, so you’ll have to do it again after exiting the game and coming back.
We confirmed this for ourselves, and it seems that the reason why Starship Troopers: Extermination caps the FOV slider at 100 is because the hands look weird when it goes beyond it. The wrist starts to look twisted and thin, which is kind of out of place. It turns out that it looks like that normally but is hidden because the FOV limitation keeps it out of sight.
Why You Should Increase FOV in Starship Troopers: Extermination
Increasing the FOV in Starship Troopers: Extermination gives you a wider range of visibility, which means you’ll be able to easily see the hostile alien bugs coming at you. This will increase the chance of you staying alive. The default FOV setting just isn’t enough to give you a good view.
This, of course, depends on your monitor. Wide-screen monitors favor higher FOVs, and being restricted to 80 or 100 actually makes it uncomfortable. Even on normal monitors, the 80 FOV value isn’t enough. We recommend you change your FOV to get a better chance at surviving and earning citizenship.
That’s how to change your field of view (FOV) in Starship Troopers: Extermination. Now you can spot bugs from a much greater perspective.
