What is a good internet speed for Warzone Pacific? As one of the most popular online multiplayer offerings currently on the market, Warzone is motivating plenty of players to double check their internet speeds to ensure they're getting the most out of the game. After all, a bad connection can easily turn a victory into a defeat in the hectic battlefields of Caldera.

Here's what you need to know to make sure you've done all you can to perfect your internet connection in Warzone.

What is a Good Internet Speed for Warzone Pacific?

Video game console manufacturers such as Microsoft typically recommend players have at least 3 Mbps (or megabits per second) of download speed to play online multiplayer. They also recommend at least 0.5 Mbps of upload speed. You'll likely want a speed higher than that — it's not even enough to steam a video in high definition — especially if you're sharing your internet connection with other users on the same network.

But internet speed is also important when it comes time to download new games. If you're looking to download Warzone — one of the most bloated games available — you're going to want a substantially higher download speed. The Pacific update on its own weighed in at around 45 GB (gigabytes). To download that in an hour, you'd need at least 100 Mbps of download.
