As the Call of Duty: Warzone game is available for all the major platforms like Windows, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, most of the players are facing issues with the game launching, dev errors, crashes, can’t connect to the network, other bugs, and more. However, plenty of PS4/PS5 players have recently reported that they’re facing a high latency rate in the COD Warzone game which slows down the gameplay or most of the time causing killed by someone else. So, here we’ve shared with you some steps to fix the Call of Duty Warzone latency issue in PS4/PS5.
