Following the recent Season 3 update, Call of Duty: Warzone players are reporting that the game’s servers are feeling worse, leading to more lag-related issues.
It’s been a big week for Call of Duty: Warzone players as the planned Season 3 update has finally arrived. As expected, the new season known as Ranked Weapons brought a slew of new content, including the rewards earned inside the new Battle Pass. Along with the newest Operator, Mateo Hernandez, joining the roster, fans also have new multiplayer maps, weapons, and packs to discover.
However, the biggest chunk of this season is the inclusion of Godzilla and King Kong, which is set to debut on May 11. While Activision teased the giant monsters ahead of the new season, players will encounter these two in matches on Caldera. To support their massive arrival, Caldera is also getting new and revised points of interest, including Dig Site, which contains skeletal remains of giant lizards and primates. As exciting as all of this may be, Season 3 seems to have some frustrating issues.
Following the Season 3 update earlier this week, fans took to social media to lament the state of the servers, with many saying they were worse than ever. On the Call of Duty: Warzone subReddit, a user named Salt-Loan1327 started a thread mentioning that the game felt bad, almost like it experienced constant lag, even though its ping rate remained stable. It’s possible that the most recent update introduced some unintended issues, as other players reported similar issues after Season 3 arrived.
The thread launched a slew of comments with people experiencing similar issues while reading after the new update. A user named oxUbiquiity even reported experiencing constant packet loss and packet burst, even though he also had a low ping. Another user mentioned that he was kicked from a game and then unable to queue for Iron Trials or Battle Royale quads, even though Rebirth Island was working fine. While not everyone is experiencing these issues, it certainly seems like there is something going on with the Caldera map.
While connection and lag issues are usually a high priority to fix for a fast-paced shooter like Call of Duty: Warzone, this is not the only problem currently affecting players. Loadout drops have seen some changes to how they work recently, essentially dropping much earlier in a match than before. This left many fans frustrated as the timing led to an increase in camping, where enemy players lurk nearby waiting to ambush those looking for loot.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
