lag switch

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

lag switch

i was playing last night with a few freinds and for once the game was running average so really enjoyed it however how many people have you all come across useing these things for cheap kills i swear we had at least 3 people dureing our game session last night although they are hard to prove and with the genuine problems with this game it difficult at times to realy tell however out the 3 people we confronted last night 2 just ran off after the game and the 3rd pleaded his inocence.

what im looking for is have any of you came across a player you suspect as useing them but cant prove it and id like to know what live and devs are doing to tackle this.

i beleave this problem is getting out of hand with all the youtube vids on how to make and use them plus they now selling them at local fle markets and online

yes i understand it mostly kids that lower there selfs to this sort of thing but makeing problems in the game worse for people realy trying to give this game a chance to be one of the greats is searously taking its toll on me and before all the daft coments come im a better than average player that can hold my own on any game with 25+years at it so keep your daft comments to yourself please

just woundered how many out there feel this is becomeing a bigger problem ?

I first saw them in Halo, and occasionally since in CoD games. I think we had one last night, but it's so difficult to tell, the way the connections go in this game. Basically, one kid maintained four full bars while everyone else dropped to red dots. It was sporadic, so he may have had a lag switch, but I suspect it was just the crappy netcode.

I certainly haven't experienced anyone suddenly jumping from in front of me to behind me, the way it happens in Halo.

Well, that would make me think lag switch, too. But sometimes the lag in this game is so bad that I just can't tell!

I hear players screaming about this all the time and too be honest I think it's just good ol fashion lag. like dr65r said it's just too hard to tell with the game being unstable as it is...I've seen it a few times where I've froze when approaching a specific person or go to the score screen and watch a connection indicator going red/yellow off and on as he/she approaches someone.

The only time lag switches work is if they are host.  I have been called out for having a lag switch many times and I wasn't host.  If someone was truely lag switching then you would be able to see it in theater clear as day.  He freezes the enemy and kills them, over and over again.  Other than that it just could be bad lag.

I've come across 4 lag switchers since the game came out. When the screen freezes for that split second that they use the lag switch press start to bring up the scoreboard and you'll see one players kill total go up. You'll usually get the disconnect symbol on screen during the whole game and like iivrruummii stated, only the host can use a lag switch.

anytime anybody is getting killed they instantly blame a lag switch.  in all my years of online gaming I may have come across one once.  they are not as rampant as people like to think.  i got blamed for having one the other day bc i was destroying people.  Moral of the story, youre not as good as you think you are at this game,  everyone has bad games/bad days.  chances are its your fault, not a lag switch

Watched a video eary today what that guy elpresador put on you tube, he was raging as usual but this time he had good cause to, one of the opposition was clearly using a lag switch which was very noticable on the video, i am sure it will get the player responsible some grief,

Yeah his second video shows the white disconnect symbol at the bottom of the screen everytime the guy uses the lag switch. If you look him up on the elite site you'll see that he has a bunch of 0 kd games because he leaves a match if he's not host.
