Warzone Lag, High Ping, Connection Issues Ruining Games – September 2021

Right now, Warzone appears to be having some big issues with lag, high ping, and connection as we head further in September 2021.

Call of Duty: Warzone is a game where split-second decisions and quick reactions are necessary to clutch out a win. So when you’re running into big connection issues in-game, it’s definitely enough to ruin your day.

Unfortunately, that’s just what Warzone players are experiencing right now, at least according to the latest reports. And on top of all the connection problems, there’s a new Warzone Riot Shield glitch that makes players invincible too.

Is Warzone suddenly experiencing a lot more connection issues? According to players on the CODWarzone subreddit, it seems that lag is becoming increasingly common in-game.

Reddit user Drfoodstamp attests that the problem has been present for the last week, calling the game ‘borderline unplayable’.

“It’s at the point where 8/9 lobbies are 150+ ping and people are teleporting, It’s been this way for a week. Not sure if they are aware of this but it’s borderline unplayable for many of us.”

And they’re not the only one complaining about Warzone connectivity either. Other fans on the subreddit confirm that they’ve had similar issues with the Battle Royale in recent play sessions.
