Lagging with 3 or 4 bars?

I dont know if im the only 1 who has this problem, but i will lag like crazy even though i have 3 bars. Im a sniper and when i shoot at someone, literly 2 seconds later i will get the kill even though im 3 baring. Also I will move just fine when im not looking at someone, but when an enemy gets in my crosshairs i will all of the sudden start lagging everywhere, is that lag switching? 3 baring in BO2 is like 1 baring in MW2 for me, anyone else having the same problems?

Killcams are not meant to be accurate. Dont use them as a forensics tool.

That is quite correct. You can't really use the kill cam feed as an accurate representation of what is occurring. Can you try sending me your speed test results from: Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

3 bars should put you a little behind the action but not to the point of lagging like crazy.  My guess is that your router may be dying on you or you could be suffering from buffer bloat.  I know when I used to use a router provided by my cable company, I would have intermittent problems with noticeable lag creeping up whenever the action picked up.  Scorestreaks being called in by other players would literally freeze my screen for a moment.  However, once I replaced that router with a 1 gig router, I haven't had that problem again.  I can't say for sure if it was the 1 gig that made the difference or if any new router would have had the same effect but it really helped me.  What I do know though is that with the 1 gig, my family can surf the net, play Netflix, etc and it doesn't have any noticeable effect on my gaming.  Whereas before I couldn't play without lagging miserably anytime somebody was on Netflix.  I will warn you that no router will completely cure lag issues but mine sure did make my gaming a lot more enjoyable.

What router did you get? I ask because I have the same problem with lagging when multiple devices are accessing the internet.
