So I'd be playing this game, and a few times, I'd get some really bad lobbys, I could shoot an entire magazine at some one an get no hit markers, and other times I would shoot 10 times at someone and be aiming straight, using foregrip, and I'd get only one or two.
Well most people would blame the game and say "it's MW3's Lag compensation back again!!"
Well that's not really the case. The way this games networking is set up is almost the opposite of mw3, instead of compensating people with bad connections, by messing with the High Speed internet users hit boxes.
They just have everyone connecting the same way, and since they guy you're shooting at may have a slower connection they don't receive your data as fast.
So you may be thinking, "Okay, isn't that that same thing?"
well no, in this instance it's their connection that determines how much out of sync everything gets. not the game trying to guess how much you should be slowed down to try to make everyone have a fair game.
While this still could be improved and smoothed out, to make playing against bad connection people actually playable, their are some quick fixes you can do in the meantime. So they these before returning the game.
(after all it's only week 1, Remember the other cod games on launch week?)
--HOW TO FIX IT--
Fix #1 should work for 95% of you, unless you have a lot of people on your internet at your house.

3. Click 'Public Match'
4. Click 'Find Match'

This will make sure you only connect to the lobbies with the best connections for you.
