Players in Warzone have encountered a huge issue and are venting out on social media.
Some players have called Warzone unplayable due to a recent ping issue. Pinging is an important communication tool for players who are unable or unwilling to speak during a match. Warzone players can ping locations, enemies, and items to alert others on their team.
pinging has become a bit challenging due to a new bug. In a Reddit thread, a Warzone player commented that pinging causes frame skips and ping spikes. Since pinging enemies is so important to gameplay communication, it is not appropriate to have the game skipping and lagging every time players try to do this.
Other Warzone players responded to the Reddit thread with similar disturbing experiences after updating the game. It also appeared to affect PC and console gamers.
One player added: Oh wow! I ping all the time since I don't normally use a headset. This makes perfect sense now, and this is why my shit is so ludicrous as fuck.
Another shared a similar experience: So when I first read this, I was like I'm not, then I jumped into a game and noticed the delay, and decided to try it out. You are 100% correct. Even if my team mates ping something, or if an icon is across the screen, there is significant lag on the PS4.
ColdcatZA, a player, said that his team attempted to avoid pinging, but found it difficult due to its repetitive nature.
Although many players are currently complaining about the issue, developers have yet to address it. The problem is still ongoing and it may take a while to get fixed.
