Solve Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Lag

call of duty
Even though the time since we got a hold of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 isn’t that much, the game has undoubtedly been a fan favorite having thousands of players around the world playing the 2065 AD fictional FPS like crazy.

While we all love to play Black Ops 3, there are times when its multiplayer isn’t that much fun. This is greatly due to the issues of Black Ops 3 lag that players face from time and time again.

With the recent inclusion of Black Ops 3 in the list of supported games by Kill Ping, we now have rolled up our sleeves to save players from Black Ops 3 lag. After doing up some homework and research we came to some results on the basic problems due to which players face Black Ops 3. These are covered below and are expected to solve the issues of many.

System Benchmark

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been recently released. While many players are able to run the game with ease, it certainly does not mean that an average spec computer is up for the task to run the game. Many players who face Black Ops 3 lag ignore the fact their computer does not meet the requirement to run the game smoothly. So to cover that up, we have gathered the minimum system requirements that should be met to play without any Black Ops 3 lag.

Operating System: Windows 7
Processor: i3-530 / AMD Phenom X4 810
Memory: 8 GB
Video Adapter: GTX 470 / Radeon HD 6970
Direct X: DX11

FPS Drops causing Black Ops 3 lag

Now that we are done with the minimum system requirements, we will move onto the second most common problem that creates Black Ops 3 lag. Yes, we are talking about FPS drops. A decline in FPS feels the same as lag, and while many are blaming the game servers for the fault, it is actually a fault on the systems end. If your FPS is taking huge drops while playing Black Ops 3, consider doing what is advised below

Go to your game folder and then to Players
Open the file named Config.ini
Set the following Values
• WorkerThreads = 2
• VideoMemory = 0.8
• VolumetricLightingEnabled = 0

Save the file and exit. Don’t worry if you don’t seem to find the ‘WorkerThreads’ command. If your game is updated then the issue has been solved already.

Stuttering leads to Black Ops 3 lag

This mostly happens if a great amount of RAM is being used by the game. Though the minimum RAM requirement for the game is 6GB, the reason why at least 8GB has been recommended is due to this cause. The visual requirement of the game is just too much for the memory to handle and is why the game starts to stutter and players feel Black Ops 3 lag. Furthermore, the VideoMemory command described above will also assist in lowering the stutter in game.

Network Stability

If done with the things that have been described above, and the problem of Black Ops 3 lag persists it is now time to check whether your network connection is up for the job or not. Having anything above a 2MB connection (really common these days) is enough if you are just playing the game. It is however, important to make sure that you are using a wired connection when playing online. Players even having higher internet connections tend to face Black Ops 3 lag because they are playing through a wireless internet and their signal strength isn’t powerful enough.

Now comes the technical part; even after having a stable wired internet connection Black Ops 3 lag isn’t leaving you alone, then the problem lies when you data packet travel the internet towards the game server. In many cases, data congestion is a reason why players face Black Ops 3 lag while for many it is the lengthy distances between computer and game server that increases ping times and lead to Black Ops 3 lag.

This is where Kill Ping comes into play and solves the Black Ops 3 lag problems that are not in your reach. Kill Ping greatly assists Black Ops 3 players that are troubled with such lag. Having more than 100 dedicated servers around the globe Kill Ping takes the game data of players through a private route towards the game server. This means that data congestion won’t be a problem anymore and long distance routes will be reduced through dedicated routing paths.


If the points described above were not able to solve your Black Ops 3 lag, then it is probably time you bring in a pro like Kill Ping to do the job for you. Download Kill Ping now and see the difference yourself.
