How To Show Ping & Packet Loss in Modern Warfare 3

The developers of Modern Warfare 3 know the importance of these numbers; that’s why they have given a simple settings menu for this.

  • Scroll down until you find the telemetry options.
  • Click “Show More,” and a list of options will appear, as shown in the screenshot below:
  • Enable Server Latency and Packet Loss.

Impact of High Ping and Packet Loss on Gaming

High ping and packet loss can have a significant impact on competitive games. For one, high ping can cause significant input delays, leading to missed opportunities or getting killed before you even have a chance to react.

Packet loss can also cause problems, leading to rubber-banding or other strange movement effects that make it difficult to aim or predict enemy movements. Even a small advantage can be the difference between winning and losing in high-level play, so high ping and packet loss can seriously disadvantage players.
