Black Ops Cold War players are reporting that more games than ever are experiencing massive lag spikes and frame drops.
When booting up into Black Ops Cold War, the last thing you want to see is a poor connection. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case a lot more lately, as Cold War appears to be going through a rough patch.
Online connectivity is everything in modern shooters, where quick reaction times and precise aim are necessary to win.
But despite a stable internet connection, many users are reporting that their game is experiencing lag. What's more, others confirm that their frame rates are being affected too.
This comes at no shock, considering that Black Ops Cold War's new update is already crashing consoles again.
Massive Lag and Low Frame Rate in Black Ops Cold War
If you're experiencing these Black Ops Cold War issues, you're not the only one. In fact, a recent Reddit thread proves that a number of players have all been witness to Cold War's latest lag problem.
Reddit user IAmDingus claims that the lag issues have been happening to them for the last few days:
"My server latency keeps spiking to 999 for a few seconds, then going back to normal. Happens several times a match without fail and it's getting super frustrating."
The user also confirms that they're running on an Ethernet connection, so it isn't just unstable wifi causing the issues.

However, fellow commenters agree with the poster, confirming similar problems in their own game. Some report major Ping spikes, while others confirm that they witnessed lag before the frame rates dropping significantly.
One user even reports that their connection was interrupted in 5 consecutive games before they gave up and went to play Zombies instead.
This is just one of the many reasons why Black Ops Cold War fans are getting sick of the game already.
Although the new Firebase Z map for Black Ops Cold War Zombies is coming soon, it's clear that it's a case of too little too late for many fans. That said, Black Ops Cold War is still the best selling game of 2020, so Treyarch has the fans to spare.
That's not all that's coming to the game, however. New Black Ops Cold War leaks reveal additional Field Upgrades and more, just around the corner.
