Always Bad Connection and always lagging

Call of Duty Black Ops II Zombies

Always Bad Connection and always lagging

Every time I play zombies I always end up lagging and having Connection Interrupted. It freaking sucks and this only happens when I play black ops 2. I could play Gta 5, battlefield 3 and any other game and not have any problems. This is an issue black ops 2 team needs to fix.

It has nothing to do with Treyarch, Activision or the game itself.

You either have really bad internet, or the people you play with do. If you go on to say it happens every time no matter who you play with, then it is definitely YOUR internet that is the issue.

I play with people who lag frequently on zombies due to them using their phones to connect to Live but they are fine when they play GTA, ergo it is still their internet that is the issue here... because they are using a PHONE!?! to connect to the internet.

Either way... don't blame the game.

In the guys defence, I lag really badly on the 360 version, especially playing origins.  Absolutely no other game lags for me, strangely the multi player is fine, well, less I'm playing people too far away, and then it's fair enough.

Now if I play it on the pc, it plays like a dream, no dropped frames, no lag, again unless it's matched me with someone the other side of the world

This is a poor result btw, as it's peak time and my sons streaming.  And yes, I absolutely know how to configure a router.

Know how and do it right is a different thing.

Just as mentioned above, post your connection stats... NAT type, ingame bandwidth, up down speed.

I cant play outside my region, i dont blame the game or devs because i can play just fine with players close in my area.

Some just have too many devices going at the same time, pc, phone, ipad, etc.

DBZ is on the money... definitely YOUR connection that is the issue.

I can assure you I set my router correctly to share the internet over my network.  Between my son and myself, we quite literally have hundreds of games.  None of them, I'll repeat that bit for you, none of them lag, apart from the zombie mode on BO2.  I can play waw, and BO1 zombies without lag.  And my NAT is open, and my in game connection is maximum, because my router is configured correctly.  Which ever route I take, upnp or port forwarding, my set-up works for ALL my other games, but still gives me grief for BO2 zombies.

So, I'll ask you, what am I doing wrong, that still allows every game I own to play correctly(hundreds remember), but not BO2 zombies on the xbox?  I most look forward to your technical expertise in this regard

Im far from expert, glad to share my opinion if it may or not be of any help.


and my in game connection is maximum


What is it? lol,


Between my son and myself, we quite literally have hundreds of games.


So you have two systems occupying the network at the same time? and this just may be the issue...

I can plug an xbox directly into the modem.   This of course means it has the fibre optic connection to itself with zero input from me.

The result is exactly the same.

But yeah, don't get me started on network sharing.  Whose idea was it to use port 3074 for every game known to man?

Well, I only ever play with people from the States when I am on XBOX and I only ever have lag issues when the host has a bad connection. The game is not the issue here. It is either the OP's connection of his XBOX.

My money is on his connection, but yeah... a quick speed test can maybe shed some light on it.
