I had the pleasure of diving into the world of Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer on the Legion Go, and let me tell you, it was an exhilarating experience
Before we jump into the action, it's important to note that I was running the beta BIOS, specifically the 25WW version, along with a 6GB frame buffer. To ensure optimal performance, I also made sure to use the latest AMD graphics drivers available from the support site. If you're interested in trying this setup yourself, you can check out the beta BIOS here.
I started my adventure by running Modern Warfare 3 at 1200p with a custom 30W gameplay setting. I also opted for a mouse and keyboard setup as I found it more comfortable than the standard controller for FPS games. The Legion Go's massive screen made the game look stunning, but it did come with a minor packet loss issue. To tackle this, I recommend running the game on recommended quality settings and keeping texture quality at medium.
Now, let's talk performance. I was pleasantly surprised to see that, for the most part, the game was running at a smooth 60 to 70 frames per second at 1200p and 30W. This level of performance was absolutely phenomenal, and playing the game directly on the display was a treat.
For those who crave even more visual fidelity, Modern Warfare 3 can run natively at 1600p. However, due to some limitations, I could only get it to go up to 1440p when docked on the capture card. Nevertheless, it still managed to maintain a frame rate above 60, with occasional dips into the mid-50s.
I decided to give the FPS mode a try, and let me tell you, it's a challenge. This mode completely remaps the controller, making it difficult to adapt if you're used to a standard mouse and keyboard setup. It takes some time to get used to the new button layouts, but with practice, you can still be competitive.
For those who prioritize performance over visual fidelity, dropping the resolution to 720p in Performance mode is a great choice. Even with recommended graphic settings and medium texture quality, the Legion Go delivered well over 100 frames per second. This level of smoothness is incredibly satisfying, especially on the Legion Go's screen.
In conclusion, Modern Warfare 3 on the Legion Go offers an impressive gaming experience. Whether you prefer the crystal-clear quality of 1200p at 30W or the blazing speed of 720p in Performance mode, the Legion Go can handle it all. Just make sure to choose the settings that match your playstyle and enjoy the action-packed world of Modern Warfare 3 on the go.
