Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's campaign is now available to those who pre-ordered the game on any platform. PC owners have exalted the title for its solid visuals and next-gen gameplay. It has been lauded as a worthy sequel to the 2019 reboot of Modern Warfare.

Like any other CoD entry, the new title comes with numerous graphical customizations that allow one to temper its impact.

Although an RTX 3080 Ti can easily run Modern Warfare 2 at the highest settings on a UHD monitor, the astonishing amount of customization options can get a bit intimidating.

Getting the best experience in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 using an RTX 3080 Ti

The RTX 3080 Ti is one of the most powerful graphics cards available on the market today. The GPU has been built for UHD gaming with no compromises. It is only slightly slower than the original RTX 3090 from 2020.

Thus, running Modern Warfare 2 is not a problem for this GPU. In fact, the card can nail a 60+ FPS experience while running the title at the highest possible settings.

However, with further tweaking, players can enjoy Modern Warfare 2 at its peak on a high refresh rate display.
