@Viderr you're not the only one having trouble with packet loss in CoD Warzone. It's a known issue at the moment, probably server side.

Might sound weird, but do you have a mobile hostpot? If so, try connecting it and playing through your mobile hotspot instead of your home network and see if you get better packet loss results that way.

I wish I could offer you something more useful than this, but as near as anyone can tell, it's not you, it's them. There are loads of people reporting packet loss issues around the world, so it's not an ISP issue. You've tried uninstall reinstall and changing game settings (which shouldn't make a difference anyway), and more importantly you don't have packet loss issues in other games.

This is almost certainly a problem with the Warzone servers, and unfortunately it looks like Activision is dragging their heels on addressing it. This would hardly be the first time Activision has failed to live up to multiplayer demand at launch. They have a history of low-balling their servers and then having issues over the first month of gameplay.

I reckon it does not help that this game is being fked over with hackers. They have some of the worst anti-cheat I have ever seen and most likely that is also taking a toll on the servers!

I really don't know why the packet loss issues are solved by using a mobile hotspot. There must be some kind of weirdness going on with Activision's servers, maybe between them and your ISP? I'm not sure what's happening, but a couple more things you could try would be playing while connected to a VPN, and setting up port forwarding. If neither of those helps then I'm about out of suggestions I'm afraid.

I'm seeing the same issue off and on in WarZone. It's Activision's servers and all the people playing. I've got 119mbps both ways and I have played nearly 1,000 matches of WZ. The packet loss comes and goes but seems to occur during high traffic times. Activision needs to either increase their server farms size, add more bandwidth or both. I haven't run WireShark to perform a packet capture but I think I will and see if I can gain any more info on the problem.

No one using my ISP can play Warzone for some reason... Ever since release.
Regular Call of Duty works perfectly.
