Call of Duty: Vanguard is a forthcoming video game scheduled to be released on 5th November 2021. It will be available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Call of Duty: Vanguard is the 18th installment of the Call of Duty Series.
Call of Duty is one of the most popular games, and players were excited with the Beta version of Call of Duty: Vanguard. But they also faced different kinds of problems while playing the game; the one we are going to discuss here is the problem of ‘Packet Loss.’
Before we start fixing this problem, keep in mind that Packet Loss and Packet Brust are not the same problems. Packet Loss means when the packet of data is completely lost and does not reach the destination; on the other hand, Packet Brust means the data packets arrive randomly to the destination, without any sequences.
In this article, we’ll talk about the possible fix to the Call of Duty: Vanguard Packet Loss Problem.
Fix Call of Duty: Vanguard Packet Loss
In Call of Duty: Vanguard, Packet Loss is a serious issue with no definite solutions. But we have gathered some fixes for you to try. The possibility of one solution is impossible because of the number of variables that can lead to the error. It could be a server glitch, an ISP problem, a client settings issue, or malfunctioning network hardware. Here are the best solutions we could come up with after observing the beta.
Wired Connection, VPN, and Open Ports
The Pocket Loss issue may occur from a connection problem. Try the steps below to fix the problem
- Try to stabilize your Internet connection by switching to a wired ethernet connection and turning off the internet connection of those devices you are not using.
- You can try using a VPN to avoid congestion. Using a VPN means you are using another server that has less traffic.
- Also, you can try to change your NAT Type to Open/Type 1 from Moderate/Type 2 or Strict/Type 3 (as Activision always recommends for Call of Duty titles). To do this, follow the process, first log in to the router and find out its ‘Port Forwarding’ section. Then put the accurate IP Address of your PC or Console and the TCP and UDP ports for your game to the corresponding boxes.
These may help you solve the problem. If any of these don’t solve the problem, you can try the next solution.
Disable On-Demand Texture Streaming
This fix is relatively easy. Follow the below steps
- Go to ‘Settings’
- Go to ‘Graphics’
- Next, go to ‘On Demand Texture Streaming.’
- Turn it off.
That won’t affect your graphics quality, but it solves your Packet Loss problem.
These are the solutions we have found from our experience of the beta. Players claim that these solutions worked for many of them. Until a definite solution that works for everyone comes, you can try these fixes.
