Atomic Heart: Fix FOV With Flawless Widescreen

Learn how to Adjust FOV in Atomic Heart by using and making adjustments via Flawless Widescreen.

Update: FOV was added as a feature in Atomic Heart with Patch 1.3.4.

There is no way to adjust the FOV manually in Atomic Heart. The developers thought the game didn’t need one since the default was already pretty wide. However, no FOV is ever wide enough, especially in shooters. This has been a common issue across various games.

So, to combat this, some coders banded together to create Flawless Widescreen, an application I’ll walk you through today to fix the FOV in Atomic Heart.

Key Takeaways
  • Atomic Heart provides no way to adjust your FOV.
  • You can use the Flawless Widescreen application as a workaround.

How To Fix FOV In Atomic Heart?

Having an Ultrawide may be a luxury, but no one can deny that it is also pretty useful. The only problem with owning one is that many games don’t natively support their resolutions. This is where Flawless Widescreen comes in.

It acts as an intermediary between games that don’t natively support adjusting FOV and custom resolutions. Exactly what we need to do the deed with Atomic Heart.

Here’s how you can make it happen:

  1. Install Flawless Widescreen:
  2. Adjust Atomic Heart’s FOV: 
    • Find Atomic Heart in the Available Plugins section > Click on it to start the download.
    • After it’s downloaded, turn your attention to the ‘In-Game FOV – Fine Adjustment’ slider.

    • Adjust the slider as you prefer. Each increment will add a +1 degree FOV to your in-game camera. 
    • Once you’re done, minimize the application and launch Atomic Heart. 

Once you boot in the game, you’ll notice that your FOV has changed. You can repeat this process till it hits the spot. Here is a comparison with the changes so you can get an idea.

When you compare the two images, you can see that the ‘After Image’ has a much wider camera angle compared to the game’s Default FOV.

The good thing about this is that Flawless Widescreen, as agreed by many to be the best way to do this, can be used with many games. So, if you often find yourself in this dilemma, you can replicate this FOV Fix using Flawless Widescreen for any game, not just Atomic Heart.

My Thoughts

Not having something as basic as a FOV slider is pretty disappointing. But I also get the developers’ perspective, thinking it was not required on launch. But with feedback from players, Mundfish ended up teasing an update featuring a dedicated option on the Official Mundfish Twitter handle.

Subsequently, this highly requested feature was released officially in Patch 1.3.4. It’s great to see Mundfish taking feedback positively, as so many people were left opting for the workaround on Steam and Reddit. So, in the end, this workaround program is more or less redundant, at least for Atomic Heart now.

So, I suggest simply updating the game if you haven’t done so to natively get the feature.
