What's the console command for setting the field of view above 90?

How do I set the field of view to 360, I want to see into infinity.

it's mathematically impossible to have a field of view that is at or over 180 degrees, in a game with rectangular projection.

You'd need a fish eye mod to get 180 or above.

Fine how do you set it to 130 or 160, becuase I'm pretty sure I saw someone do 360 before but he might have had the fisheye mod.

It is no longer possible to put fov_desired higher than 90. That has been patched out long ago.

Anyway, for reference,

But if you want to try, the command is simply "fov"

so "fov 120" etc

I doubt it will work on any legit server.

The limit is 75 to 90.

You can't go higher because seeing all around you is cheating.
You can't go lower because that's the same as using a scope, which is also cheating.

I play with an FOV of about 120.



But I only came into this topic to brag
