Constant lag spikes on PC


I play Ghosts on PC

So, for the past few days I got constant lag-spikes in Multiplayer. This never happened before, it just started happening about a week ago. These lags occur every 15-30 seconds. It seems like I would get disconnected from the game for like half a second.

During the lags I get teleported back and forth or I get stuck in movement or the reloading animation stops and stars again.

These lags happen in every match, not just in some matches, so it's probably not the hosts fault.

In Black Ops 2 I have a steady ping of 40-50 ms. In Battlefield 3 and CoD4 my ping never goes above 20 ms. The lagometer in CoD4 also doesnt show any lag spikes whatsoever.

So it has to be an issue with Ghosts.

How can I fix these lags? The game is unplayable as long as this happens.

I tried all of the Tweaks and Fixes things before already, but it didn't help. That's why I asked here.

I tried verifying my game cache, but it didn't change anything, there wasn't even anything wrong at all.

The good thing about it all is, that I didnt have any lags today. I played a few matches (even before verifying my game cache) and everything was running smooth and lag-free. So the lags just disappeared for no reason.

I hope it stays like this from now on.

Thanks for the tips though
