Fallout 76 is finally out, but it’s missing some of the graphical options PC players are used to, such as the ability to change FOV. Fear not, though – you can just change it all manually.

If you want to make some changes, you simply need to make a copy of the Fallout76prefs.ini file. Rename it to Fallout76Custom.ini so you can differentiate the two, then delete the contents of the Custom file (not the original file).

You can now edit the contents of your Custom .ini file in notepad. As long as you keep them in the same folder, any changes made to the Custom file will overwrite files in the other .ini, which means you only need to delete your changes to revert.

Here are the changes you should make to [Display]:

You can set those values however you want, but be aware that going too high could cause issues. If you want to change the antialiasing from TAA to FXAA, just add this setting under [Display]:
