What Is A Packet Burst In Vanguard?

Packet Burst is a common issue faced in online gaming. It happens when either the game receives a lot of data input at once or none at all.

One way to identify Packet Burst in Vanguard is to notice the 3 overlapping boxes warning you of the same. You will also notice a variation in the color of the icon where orange is less severe whereas a red one makes the game impossible to play.

You might notice that the character starts running too fast or ends up skipping scenes (a lag in other words). This usually happens when too many data packets are received at once. When it comes to online gaming such as in Call of Duty Vanguard, Packet Burst can spoil your game as you might find your character dead all of a sudden whilst not knowing how it happened.

But do not confuse Packet Burst for Packet Loss as the latter means the loss of information when the data sent between your computer and the server is lost along the way.

Methods To Resolve Packet Burst In COD Vanguard

Packet Burst can occur due to issues at your end or at the servers. In case you encounter packet burst only while playing Call of Duty Vanguard and not any other game, it could be a problem with the game. But if not, here are a few things you can do to fix packet burst issue on your end:

1. Try switching to a wired connection

Doing so basically takes care of multiple root causes of packet burst such as faulty routers, Wi-Fi packet management protocols, or port settings

2. Check Texture Streaming Setting

Try disabling this setting by visiting Graphics Settings and turning off the On-Demand Texture streaming. Sometimes it can help improve the stability of the game.

3. FPS

Check that the FPS settings in the graphic card control panel match with the in-game FPS. It has been observed that a mismatch between the two can cause packet burst in Vanguard.

4. Check With Your ISP

Sometimes it could just be your poor internet connection that could be creating this issue.

5. Keep V-Sync On

That’s all we have for now. Do try all of the above, and keep an eye on the official game channels to see if the Packet Burst in Vanguard is happening due to some issue at the server end.
