Modern Warfare 3 Package Burst: How to Fix This Error?

Packet Bursting… What exactly is it?

Packet Burst is a network error that occurs when there are issues on your network or on Activision's servers. Very generally, the bursting of packages causes a drop in FPS, but above all some jerks which can be really disturbing in part.

If Activision's servers are not down, the problem must come from an unstable internet connection or a speed that is much too low for what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 requires.

To avoid encountering this problem, find below different tips that can help you.

How to fix packet bursting error?

If the status of Activision's servers does not indicate any problems, we have some solutions to offer you to try to fix the packet bursting error on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

The first is to disable Texture Display On Demand in your game's graphics settings. By enabling it, you allow Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to download high-quality textures while you play. As a result, you lose a lot of bandwidth, which can affect your gaming experience.

The second is to disable Cross-Play for console players. Servers with multiple gaming platforms are prone to causing players to experience packet bursting errors. So, for better fluidity, remove the cross-platform.

If these two tips don't work, you will have to touch the equipment that is in your home. Restarting your internet box or investing in an Ethernet cable are the best things you can try to do now.

If you play over Wi-Fi, be aware that you lose a lot of bandwidth to fully enjoy your games. Therefore, if the configuration of your home allows it, we strongly invite you to connect your PC or console via Ethernet.

If these tips don't work, unfortunately, you will need to file a ticket with Activision Support so they can try to help you.
