You can check your Ping in R6 Extraction
There is no denying that lag is something that everyone of use hates, when it comes to gaming. Be it fps lag or connection and server lag. There are plenty of ways to fix FPS lag, but taking care of server lag or latency, requires some extra attention. Rainbow Six Extraction is no different.
A lot of reports have been popping up lately on the Ubisoft forums, where people are complaining that they are experiencing lag, rubberbanding, hit registry issues, etc. A lot of you might think, that since Extraction is not a PvP title, these issues don’t impact the game that much. But you are extremely wrong. You see, Rainbow Six Extraction is a co-op title, that requires you to maintain your pace and support your teammates. If you are lagging all around, and alerting every single enemy in the room. You will most definitely fail your missions. To prevent that, you need to first figure out why are you lagging. And to do that, the first thing you need to know, is, “What is your ping?”.
