Assalamualikum people of the world,
I have an issue with csgo and ingame ping (lag spikes). When i play causal matches on the official csgo servers and sometimes in MM, I lag at random times for no apparent reasons. My ping will go from 90-120 to 300 and beyond and be back to normal the next second or so. I have tried lots of solutions i found online and none have managed to fix the lag. So now i look to you guys to help me solve this problem. If you need any info about my laptop or any thing i need to run in the game tell me, give instructions and i will happily provide you the info needed.

Thank you in-advance.

Seems like a ping issue more than anything else. What ISP do you have, and are there people besides yourself that use your internet? Downloads, streaming etc can cause ping spikes.

I use PTCL, now don't go saying it's PTCL's fault because i have been using it for my entire gaming life and it has had it's ups and downs but it is a good enough ISP and also the ping spikes happen only in CSGO (i play LoL and PoE as well). The internet is my families internet as well they use it to do what ever they want to do. It is an 8mb connection and most of the time i get full speed.

Literally can't help you if you don't want help dude. And it is PTCL's fault, one of my friends reports lag spikes too with a PTCL connection in Siege and CS:GO. The only solution here is probably change your ISP, or maybe get another connection solely for gaming purposes. Otherwise I guess you gotta live with it.

If you think it's a fault with your PC or game settings, take your PC to a friend's house and game on his/her internet. Then let us know if the lag spikes persist.

here's the thing... problem you are having i had same because my line's weren't Fiber they were non-fiber... so after i'm on fiber i'm getting stable pings 95-100.
and the issue i raised above happened like 2 days ago and its fixed now.
I get 95-100 ping on dubai as well on this 8mb PTCL connection. My problem is not about continuous lag it is about lag spikes like one moment my ping is going from 100 to 300 and back the next second.

You mentioned playing on wi-fi on a laptop? Try using an ethernet instead, or try my suggestion above, take your laptop to a friend's place and play on their connection. If it's a problem with your internet, you shouldn't get lag spikes. If it's a problem with game settings or OS, you'll still get them. It will help us narrow the issue down.

it probably still can be your wifi card causing probelm.... i had a HP laptop it used to drop signals while i was in game so my ping spiked maybe that might be an issue for you... try using ether net...

It is an issue with my laptop. I guess I will have to live with it until I can afford a better laptop or gaming PC.

    amen !! i thought Horizon 2 would be my most anticipated game and I didn't even think there would be a new God of War game in development and projected for release this soon. I was expecting 2023 or so at the earliest.

    They might show something in the event before the console launch.

    that looked like it was done for demo purposes, i highly doubt the final game will have 1 hit kills like that
    it won't of course but someone not acquainted with Souls games might think the game is easy like that

    Yeah, i don't want the difficulty option. That would be a different game altogether lol

    The recent gameplay showed one hit kills (but didn't say it was the tutorial section). I think they are trying to fish casual gamers. :p

    a difficulty option goes against the core design of the game. That would be terrible.

    And Godfall is $10 cheaper on PC so not sure how they can justify charging $70 on PS5 lol

    But it shouldn't be a full priced game (which is now $70)
    yeah considering that Shadow of the Colossus remake was $40, the $70 price is a rip off
