Host Lag caused by Anti Cheat measures?

Could this be the reason why some people experiencing Host lag? Cheats only work when being Host, does this game run some security measures while being Host? could be a possibility for Host lag.

Your thoughts?

No you're thinking into it too much...

You know if you're being lag switched...you meet someone..screen jerks...you die...simples

I've heard that lag switching only works when being Host, so your theory doesnt't work.

Actually... that's not true.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Lag switches can be used by non-hosts too. It allowed them to look around corners, and when they stop it, it snaps them back to where they are.

With cheating i was more thinking about Jtag and other infection hacks.

CoD4 and MW2 don't have this new anti cheat security features and Host doesn't lags, you get my point here?

thats not how a lag switch works, it doesnt snap you back, lol watch this video. it stops everyone in their tracks long enough for you to kill them.

I think he meant that the effect is different when using a lag switch while being host and being a client, what you have described is when being host, he described it when being a client.

Who knows, in the past, you had to be host to use a lag switch, but from what I've read, they work for ppl not hosting in bo2. It's not the same freeze effect, but I believe it basically manipulates the "lag comp" to their advantage, similar to the "throttling" idea. I don't know if security measures are doing it, but something is definitely handicapping the hosts 85 to 95% of the time. And that's a step up from the beginning when it was 100% of the time for me.  Getting host= death sentence
