Arma 2 FOV Tweak

  • First, head to My Documents/ArmA 2/ folder and open the USERNAME.ArmA2OAProfile using the notepad.
  • At the bottom of the file, you’ll see two values, “fovTop” and “fovLeft”.
  • You can adjust these values to change the field of view. You can either go with hit and trial or you can use the FOV calculator to be more accurate.
  • After calculating the fovtop value, divide the number with the second number of your aspect ratio. For example, if it’s 4:3, then you should divide it by 3, and then multiply it by the first number (here it will be 4). This will give you the value for fovleft. Don’t forget to round off the result up to 2 digits after the decimal.
  • Save the changes and launch the game.
