Sounds like a game engine lag coz you cant get a 'ping' in sp. This type of problem could be due to a number of causes: 1. Graphics card memory buffer overflow. Basically, your card doesn't have enough graphics memory or it isn't configured properly. Solution: Either get a bigger graphics card, play with different performance settings, or tweak COD's mp cfg file to allow the game to use your existing graphics memory better. 2. Sound card overload. Some maps in COD use large ambient sound files which overdrive your sound card. If your seetings are too high this causes an overload to the card and the cpu translates that as gaming lag coz its dealing with large amounts of data. Solution: change your sound settings, or get a better card. Hope this helps
