While there has been plenty of new content for players to enjoy in Warzone Pacific Season 2, including new map locations and new weapons added to the loot pool, it hasn't all been smooth sailing. As is the case with many major title updates, the servers can be overloaded by both a massive number of players as well as the new content not being fully worked out.

Oftentimes, this results in major lags and bugs, as well as causing the servers to crash, preventing players from being able to log in. Though the problems have persisted now nearly two full months since the release of Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded.

The Warzone lag problems seem to be cropping up again with players reporting issues with the gameplay freezing and sputtering. After user donregan25 posted a complaint to Reddit voicing frustration with laggy Warzone games, dozens of fellow players chimed in with similar sentiments.

Many users added to donregan25's complaint citing they too were experiencing sputtering and slow-motion issues when playing Warzone specifically. With many listing that they have a perfectly fine internet connection, it seems even more troubling that so many players dealing with the same lag.

What may be even more frustrating, there does not appear to be a specific reason for the current lag. The game developers have not commented on the problem as of writing, though we will continue to monitor the situation.

Other commenters provided some help stating that Rebirth Island was much less laggy, which would make sense seeing that the lobbies are much smaller. It may be worth a run if you're dealing with COD Warzone connection issues.
