Fluctuating Jitter and Packet Bursts on Warzone

Since Warzone came out I've noticed I get almost constant packet bursts (represented by three orange squares in-game) on Warzone. This leads to feeling like I'm suddenly slowing down or speeding up in game. The latency is fairly consistent at about 60ms on most servers.

While exploring this issue I've also found when I do tests for jitter, it fluctuates between 5ms and 100ms - so there's something wrong somewhere.

This is my current setup

Gaming PC (what I've been doing the tests on) connected via Powerline adapters (I have tried connected the PC directly to the router/modem when it used to be downstairs, it made no difference) to an ASUS RT-AC86U Router connected to the Virgin Hub Router in modem mode. 

Other games don't seem to be affected and my speed tests are pretty consistent at about 150-350 mb/s and 30-40 up.

I've tried restarting everything, port forwarding, QoS, changing DNS server, none of it makes the slightest bit of difference. Friends in the same city on the same ISP in the same games as me do not have this problem, which makes me think there's something wrong between my house and the cabinet/Virgin's connection. I have had this problem since March (when the game came out) and in that time I have used three different routers (one being the basic Virgin one) and two entirely different PCs, so I don't think it's my hardware at the moment.

Been having similar issues the past few months, in the southeast area.  Makes the game unplayable.

Re: Fluctuating Jitter and Packet Bursts on Warzone

I'm having the exact same issues. Mates within a mile of me same package same ISP no problems. I've rang Virgin and they keep telling me there is no issues. They put me onto the gadget tech team. They screwed it up even more. I've been getting it in rocket league aswell as warzone. 

I'm tempted to leave but have heard worse reports from other ISP so I dunno what to do.

Having the same issues here. I’m moving to BT on the 24th unless I get this sorted before that.

Re: Fluctuating Jitter and Packet Bursts on Warzone

Strange that you only have in war zone! If you would have a Internet connection problem then it would affect all games. But it might just be that the network is over utilised and you might just get kicks and your latency spikes up and after 20 seconds to 1 min you have no issues. I suppose this happens between 12pm and 6 pm. Right?

It happened at all times, but was worse in the evenings. Switched to BT just over a week ago and haven't had any problems with it since.

Glad you’ve managed to sort it by switching to BT. I’m due to move to them next week and it’s given me confidence that it will be a better gaming (warzone) experience. Can’t stand the constant lag spikes every 10 seconds.
