Call of Duty: Vanguard has been out for almost two weeks now, yet the game continues to experience technical problems. Some players have been complaining about visibility, whereas for others there are some serious blur issues. The game has a lot of different settings that could be improperly set up, or just poorly optimized. Nevertheless, here are some potential solutions on how to fix the CoD: Vanguard blurry screen issue.

Fix 1: Render & Texture Settings

The most common reason why people are experiencing blurry screen issues in CoD: Vanguard is due to improper render settings. The Texture/Render resolution determines how well the game runs and looks like. The higher the settings, the better the quality of the game, however this may come at the cost of performance.

If your PC cannot run the game at its highest settings, you might definitely encounter some blurry screen issues. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean you can’t play Vanguard at 100% render resolution. This method will fix the issue for a majority of affected players. Just do the following:

  • Open the application
  • Launch CoD: Vanguard
  • Go to Graphics tab under Settings
  • Click the Quality tab
  • Ensure Render Resolution is at 100%
  • Increase Texture/Quality Settings (if possible)

Fix 2: Restart Shader Compilation

If you’re familiar with CoD: MW and BOCW, know that shader installation is also very relevant in Vanguard. Many people have been stuck with a compiling shader bug, a problem which might also correlate to potential blur issues. You could restart shader compilation to fix both.

  • Open the application
  • Launch CoD: Vanguard
  • Go to Graphics tab under Settings
  • Click on the Quality tab
  • Select the [Restart Shader Compilation] option at the bottom of the Graphics tab
  • Wait for all 3 shader packs to complete installation.

Fix 3: Turn on FidelityFX CAS Option

A lot of new video game releases have been using AMD’s FidelityFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) system. In its most basic sense, the Fidelity CAS smoothens out a game’s visual quality through image-sharpening technology. Enabling this option is quite easy:

  • Open the application
  • Launch CoD: Vanguard
  • Go to Settings
  • Click on the Graphics/Quality tab
  • Find and Turn on “FidelityFX CAS” option

  • Focused Mode
  • Depth of Field
  • World Motion Blur
