I was told about the settings.ini file for BC:2 where you could increase your field of view.

The default value looks like:


I am wondering if there are any reasons I shouldn't do this, or if I will get banned for setting this value higher than 55.

No, you cannot get banned for changing anything in the settings.ini file. But do back it up in case you make your game unplayable.

BFBC2 can be played with different height ratio, so the FOV in the settings is the Vertical FOV, so use This FOV calculator to figure out the horizontal FOV if you want to set it to something specific horizontal.
