When it comes to online games, I’m pretty sure that we've all experienced lag that ruins our game. High ping and latency issues can drive players crazy. In order to have a smooth gaming experience, you have to lower your PUBG ping. In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to effectively reduce your ping. If you want to know your ping before following this guide, you can do so by doing a PUBG ping test using Ping Test Live. It will show your current latency to all PUBG servers. Latency is the time it takes for a data packet to transfer from point A to point B. In this case point A would be our computer or console and the point B would be the game server to which we connect. The method that we use to calculate the latency is called a “Ping”.
First, let's start with the small tweaks. Make sure that your hardware meets the minimum recommended requirements for PUBG. Outdated hardware may cause lag. After that, make sure that no other programs are running in the background. To close background services, you can use Windows Task Manager. This does not mean that you have to close all the processes in the task manager. Closing the programs and services that are using your internet would be enough. Secondly, you can try installing a proxy to play PUBG. Proxy is a good way to fix a high PUBG ping. By using a proxy, you will be able to play the game through a proxy server of another country. This can dramatically reduce your ping right away.
If you are using a Wi-Fi connection to play PUBG, you can try switching to a LAN connection. Although Wi-Fi is good, a LAN connection will always provide a more stable experience, with higher download and upload speeds and less latency. This is because Wi-Fi is mainly dependent on the range. Therefore, if you experience any connection issues when playing online, consider purchasing a good LAN connection. This is likely to resolve most of the ping and latency related issues. If you are sticking with the Wi-Fi connection, move your wireless router close to your computer or game console. Add your game as an exception in the firewall on your computer. Some firewalls block or restrict games, causing lag. Sometimes it's not your fault and the lag could be due to PUBG servers. It's best to check their Twitter account to see if other players are having similar problems to yours.
