Here’s the crux of the article in video form

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is once again in the news. Recently, we covered an issue where some Modern Warfare 2 players faced crashing issues on cinematic playback at startup after Season 2 update.

This time, some are experiencing difficulties playing the game due to multiple issues that have also popped up after the recently launched Season 2 update.

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10), some players are experiencing persistent server lag, teleporting, rubberbanding, and stuttering-related issues, which makes it difficult for them to enjoy the game.

A PlayStation 5 owner complains that they experience a massive lag in every multiplayer round. They also say that even after the match is over, they get the winning speech with a stuttered sound.

Also, it takes up to 2 minutes for the next screen or phase of the game to load, after which one can select any option from the game menu. Players have to forcefully quit and restart the game on their devices.


Another user on Reddit claims that after installing the Season 2 update, movement in the game has become wonky and jittery. Now, there is also an additional delay in registering any of the button presses one makes to move.

Even though some have claimed to have high-speed internet connections installed at their premises, they are still experiencing lag.


Since the new season update I’ve been lagging in multiplayer even though my connection is fine. My latency is like 50-70. Anyone else had issues with this? They’re just little lags every few seconds, but it’s really annoying to play like that.

Has anyone else internet been buggy during multiplayer or warzone? random game crashes happening a lot after this update for me even though my internet speed is fine.

Gamers are frustrated and annoyed due to these issues and are now requesting the developers to fix them as soon as possible.

It’s also worth mentioning that some players (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) have been reporting about cheaters using lag switches to crash the lobbies. So, it’s a possibility that this lag problem has been induced by a section of such gamers.


Having said that, we will keep tabs on the server lag, teleporting and rubberbanding problems that some Modern Warfare 2 players are facing and update this story as we come across new information.
