Re: Horrible ping spikes and packet loss

Its worth checking for any noise on your phone line, as that will cause errors and slow things down, assuming you do not have an FTTP connection.

Also, it not a good idea to use a wireless connection, as that is subject to delays, as its shared with other devices, and other nearby wireless routers on the same channel. Use a direct Ethernet cable to your BT Home Hub.

Re: Horrible ping spikes and packet loss

I use Ethernet cable to my pc and I’ve used so many different Ethernet cables I play COD mostly and it’s unplayable my ping is terrible I’ve been on so many forums to try different settings on my pc. My upload and download speed are what they should be but my ping is 200 plus

Re: Horrible ping spikes and packet loss

Hi @Clarke4828,

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to check in with you to see how your connection has been performing.

When you launch the Blizzard app for COD or Warzone, you should see a globe next to "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare". Can you click on that please? It should show Americas, Europe and Asia. I take it, it's showing as Europe?

When you're in game, do you have the Server Latency widget enabled? It's under Telemetry in the general options.

Thanks
