I shoot people over and over, then bang I'm dead... I once shot someone in the head with a shotgun when I was stood at the side of him, then he killed me... Kill Cam suggests I didn't shoot at all!
Seriously sort it out Treyarch.
Edit The worst thing is, according to the game I'm on a "4 bar" clearly not, so not only is your hit detection/lag comp annoying is hell, also the ping feature also sucks.
Every since that little white number in the top right hand corner changed to 23.446.21, the game has been unplayable for me. Every single match I'm experiencing what you describe.
Saying the lag is getting worse is like saying the Pacific Ocean is getting bigger.
It lagged on day 1 and it still lags now. You get the odd good game, just to keep you interested and coming back for more in a masochistic kind of way.
I play combat training most of the time now because although its still laggy its far more enjoyable and I play the game to have fun not get all bent out of shape because of the stupid stuff that happens all the time.
Just on the 4 bar connection thing this is the way I look at it
Host 100% connected (minamal lag)
75% to 100% 4 Bar
50% to 75% 3 Bar
25" to 50% 2 Bar
0% to 25% 1 Bar
this is all basied on distance from the host so even with a 4 bar you could be still only at 75% connection to the host and lagging
