Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s foray into the battle royale genre hasn’t been a total success. Many players are currently experiencing CS:GO Danger Zone lag. It seems the CS:GO Battle Royale mode is lagging severely, with some players crashing and getting framerate stutters.
CS:GO Danger Zone Lag – Battle Royale Mode Lagging?
Users on the GlobalOffensive subreddit also reported frame rate drops in CS:GO Danger Zone.
Connecting with more players can mean higher ping, which sometimes results in players seemingly teleporting and other lag issues. However, there also seems to be a problem throughout the servers regardless of your individual connection.
While you’ll usually get the same FPS as you would in Competitive to begin with, this can drop a lot. Some of this comes down to the larger map with more events happening and more players playing. However, the unstable FPS and stuttering can make it difficult and unpleasant to play.
How To Fix Lag in CS:GO Danger Zone
As of right now, the lag in Danger Zone seems to be a widespread problem with the game rather than something you can fix individually. However, there are a few things that might help.
Setting all your Video Settings to the lowest settings possible can boost FPS significantly. Make sure you Enable Multicore Rendering- this allows CS:GO to use more of your CPU to give you higher FPS.
It’s likely a patch will come out within the next week to address some problems with Danger Zone. Valve may also need to upgrade servers to accommodate the influx of new players from CS:GO being free-to-play.
For now, if you have any issues, it’s best to report the server in the game or even submit feedback to Valve.
