How to Check Server Latency / Ping In Call of Duty: Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone was released both as an update to Modern Warfare and a free, standalone download for those who don’t own the base game. The latter is likely to attract many a new player unfamiliar with the latest flavor of COD.

If you too are among the uninitiated, the first thing on your agenda may be to ensure that you are playing with reasonable latency. Fortunately, in Warzone’s case, checking ping is a straightforward affair, as should always be the case. You can set the game to display both ping and packet loss at all times as part of an overlay. Here’s how to enable it.

Note that while spectating another player, ally or enemy, the overlay shows their latency and not your own.

For those interested in keeping their system’s performance in check, the aforementioned Telemetry section also features the option to enable an FPS (frames per second) counter as well as a GPU temperature overlay, among others.
