According to players, Warzone 2.0’s servers are unplayable right now, making them frustrated at every turn.
Warzone 2.0 is the current live service BR title of Activision. It’s a direct sequel to Warzone 1, an instant hit worldwide. However, Warzone 1 was plagued with cheaters, optimization, and server issues, severely hindering its growth.
Warzone 2.0 managed to fight off these issues to some extent. However, with the launch of Modern Warfare 3, the new CoD HQ app, and prominent player counts, the game is currently facing server issues, making it unplayable for most players.

Warzone 2.0’s Unplayable Servers
In a recent thread by u/Asen_ on the Warzone subreddit, the poster highlighted a gameplay clip showing Warzone 2.0 servers not working correctly.
In the gameplay clip, it is evident that the game servers are triggering packet bursts. The frequent packet bursts have been a massive problem for Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone 2.0. Most players are reportedly facing this issue even though they have excellent internet connections.
Another user identified the problem as being related to VRAM usage. According to u/goodfoot34, VRAM usage under 90 fixes the packet burst problem in most cases. However, a few server-side issues still remain.
Another user pointed out that this is just a plot by Activision to push Modern Warfare 3 preseason sales. However, this might be a simple matter of server optimization issues, which are fixable with time.
Modern Warfare 2’s failure and Warzone 2.0’s undoing of what Warzone 1 brought to the table for players might backfire for Activision in the coming years. Players are continuously getting frustrated by the plethora of in-game issues due to the developers not responding to feedback. Hopefully, Activision will fix the server issues before Modern Warfare 3 is integrated into the game this December.
