Though there is no official fix available yet, you can try out some of the recommended and commonly used methods to check whether the issue has been fixed or not. Currently, the higher latency or ping lag may occur due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.

- First of all, make sure that your internet connection or bandwidth is stable and faster enough to play online battle royale games. If you’re using any other music or video streaming platform while gaming, make sure to close that as well.
- Disable Antivirus program or any virus scanning apps to run in the background as it can prevent the system to run the game properly.
- Try to log out from the Blizzard Battle.net account > Close the client and reboot your PC > Log back in and check again.
- If you’re suffering from Packet Loss or Data Loss issue while downloading the Warzone update or installing it, make sure to turn off the wireless internet connection (if any) and use a wired ethernet cable to directly plug into the computer.
- Some Wi-Fi routers come with a Quality of Service (QoS) feature. This particular feature will allow you to set traffic priorities to the devices on your network and more. So, you can easily control the ping response timing and latency rate.
- Last but not the least, it’s needless to say that always keep updated your Windows OS version and graphics driver as well.
