So i just recently got the XR500 and its been fun fiddling with it but man, my connections in COD have been dreadful.
I have AT&T Fiber, 950 Down and 950 Up. I get 2ms ping to my local server and solid pings all across the US. Barely any Jitter and trace routes come back great.
There is your issue.
Ive found over many many hrs and years fiddling with modems etc you cant fix it yourself as the game balances the connection against all players.
Its the games stupid hybrid netcode bro.
whilst 2ms is great you are so far ahead of everyone else in your lobby the game lags you out to match others. And you get the results that you get. Seems to hard for the devs too match people into lobbies of similar ping, they just stick whoever where ever.
Try to force another server if you can and it should in theory be better. At least try and expand your geo range, you may not be directly connected to the server, your game data could bounce through another player before is reaches the server. If this player is out of your geo range then you will either drop the lobby or have a very miserable connection.
My only server has to deal with a massive space. Look on a map and just gaze at the surface area from New Zealand to Perth Western Australia then up as high as Japan, anywhere in that triangle are players i can be in a lobby with. Japan is normally only very late night or early morning but it happens, peak hour is generally a little better but not by much.
