This article explains to you how to reduce your ping and improve your network quality when playing PUBG. Ping is one of the most critical factors in PUBg because our quality of the gaming experience depends on it. Ping refers to the number of milliseconds it takes your computer to respond to a request sent from another computer. Note that there is no guaranteed way to reduce your PUBG ping because it depends on a lot of things. So let’s get started and let’s start small.
The very first thing you can do to reduce your PUBG ping is, relocate your router to a close place to your computer. This doesn’t apply if you use a LAN connection. But if you are using a Wi-Fi connection, relocating the router to a close place will improve the stability of your internet connection, which in turn will reduce your ping. Although this step probably won't fix your PUBG ping issues completely, it's a good start.
Secondly, you can close any background processes and applications that are running. Having programs that use a lot of bandwidth like Netflix, YouTube will directly affect your ping. This also applies to background services that are running silently. You can use Task Manager to close these programs immediately and you can turn them back on after. After doing this, you will see some significant improvements in your PUBG ping.
You can also reduce the number of devices that use your Wi-Fi connection. Normally, routers can only support a few devices at once, and each device in use will have the available connection bandwidth and this will increase your PUBG ping. If your mobile phone is always connected to your Wi-Fi, then consider putting it on Airplane Mode when playing PUBG.
Another thing you can do to reduce your PUBG ping is using a VPN. I personally don’t like this because you have to pay a decent amount of money to get a good VPN. Most of the free VPNs are just terrible and it will slow down your connection even more. If these steps don’t reduce your PUBG ping, the final thing you can do is replace your router. If your router or modem is a few years old, replacing your device will have an obvious effect on the stability and speed of your internet connection. If you are planning to play with multiple people on the same network at the same time then you may have to invest a little more in a router designed specifically for gaming. Your PUBG ping is also likely to reduce when you install a new router.
