You can get a first impression of Season 2 Reloaded for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Cold War in the official trailer:
Of course, there are a number of general solutions to problems. For example, you can try to improve your internet connection with these tricks:
- Restart the router
- Use LAN connection instead of WLAN
- Check your own internet speed with Speedtest to exclude external problems.
- Close all programs that you don’t need at the moment and that use up power or bandwidth unnecessarily.
- Restart Battle.net
Problems with the download? These tricks can help
Remove download limitation
In the settings of the Battle.net client you can set your download rate. If you select 0 (which stands for unlimited), the client should then use your maximum available bandwidth.
Change region in Battle.net
The download rate in the Battle.net client is linked to the region. Fortunately, you can change it quite quickly and easily:
- pause the current download
- change the region from “Europe” to “America” in the client interface
- restart the download
After restarting the download, you may notice an improvement in download speed. However, there is no guarantee for this.
If you are using a VPN, it may be worthwhile to connect to a server in a country where there is not a lot of internet traffic. With the help of the world clock, you can find out where it is in the middle of the night, for example.
Once you have connected to such a server, restart the Battle.net client and start downloading. An improvement in the download speed should become apparent quickly.
CoD update is big again
A high download speed is almost mandatory in the case of the current Call of Duty games. With Season 2 for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Cold War, there are once again over 30 gigabytes on the digital storage scales.
Of course, we hope that these tips will help you, or that the servers will be kind to you this time. If you have any other tips or advice, feel free to post them in the comments.
