Modern Warfare 2: Warzone 2.0 – How To Fix High Ping Issue

There have been some problems in the newly released Warzone 2.0 which is the much-hyped open battle arena for one of the hottest games of 2022, Modern Warfare 2.0. There are a lot of great things going, including the minted FJX Cinder Weapon Vault and a bevy of great weapons. It also has a great shooting range and players are loving the high-octane adventure but there is a problem.

The issue comes in the form of a high ping time which can be really annoying, especially in life-and-death situations. The higher the ping time, the worse will be your accuracy in terms of shooting down an enemy or mobility across the terrain. Modern Warfare 2 faced similar problems and the developers took quite some time to resolve the issue.

Nevertheless, you will not have to wait that long as the following lists a few methods that players can apply in order to resolve the high-ping problem.

Modern Warfare 2: Warzone 2.0 – How to solve the high Ping problem

Start your router again

Yes, it may seem like the most obvious fix but sometimes, it does hold merit. If you are playing after a while or the router has been giving trouble to other devices, this is the way to go before you begin a more detailed list of fixes.

  • Simply take out the plug of the router and keep it away for 10-20 seconds
  • Once the time passes, rejoin it again and switch it back on
  • After the router is ready, wait a couple of minutes for it to stabilize itself before relaunching the game and seeing the results

Try Google DNS

One of the quickest fixes as any DNS from Google or a specialized server will have you playing the game without any fuss as soon as you start it again.

Try a VPN

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is one of the best ways to ail your troubling internet connection and speed. This is because there are times when your own server may pick up signals from elsewhere which will not give you the speed you need.

After you have gotten a VPN application, install it and connect with a different country, though the closer you remain to your actual presence, the better. This will give you the least ping time, and even players who have been facing problems with Modern Warfare 2 can use this solution. That is why you should try the VPN whenever possible which will hit two birds with one stone.

Clear DNS cache

The DNS Flush helps is cleaning out the cache which can clog your system when being used at a heavy rate beforehand and it will improve your system speed overall. That is why this fix can be an underrated option for players to go for when in trouble.

  • Select Windows + R together which will have the Run dialog box popping out
  • Input “cmd” and press Enter
  • On the following screen, input “ipconfig /flushdns” and run it by selecting Enter

Use a wired connection

This is an old tried-and-tested method that appears in a variety of fixes. This is because wires are more reliable as they are connected to the router but radio waves can get disrupted due to a variety of factors that will hamper the frequency of your connection. It is advised that you check where the problem is coming from and try a wired connection.

Unfortunately, most modern laptops do not support a LAN connection anymore, so this is mostly for PC players. For laptop users, the best you can do is remove the other connections to your common router and run the game as a standalone so better speeds can be reached.

There is also the feature of Router Admin which indicates how much bandwidth is being used by your connections. It will also reveal the kind of internet usage being drawn by your devices, meaning you will know what to remove and what to keep.

Shutting any extra task or application

This is another easy step you can follow and something that is recommended for all games. You should always shut down any outstanding applications that are using your internet and reduce bandwidth for your game.

Additionally, there are a few applications that open up and start running on their own as soon as you start your device. Players wanting to find out which applications are taking up the most internet can follow the below steps:

  • Click on Control+Shift+Escape together which will pop open the Task Manager
  • Choose the Processes option and then, select the tab of Network Usage which will arrange your applications in the manner they are eating up bandwidth
  • Press on right-click by selecting any of the applications that you want to close and then choose “End Process”
  • Once you are done, simply come out of the Task Manager and restart the game again

You should also close any of the browsers that are open as they take up a lot of internet too which will slow down your playing experience.

Thus, these are some of the methods you can try if the high ping time issue keeps cropping up. Players should be able to clear it out after one or a few of the methods and enjoy the best gameplay that the developers had envisioned. While it will not take much time, you can still be on top of your issues by clearing the cache and shutting applications from time to time.
