What causes lagging and freezing problems in Modern Ops?

Performance issues in mobile apps can be caused by various factors. In online gaming apps, internet problems such as slow internet, intermittent or unstable network and no internet connection are likely the underlying cause.

Aside from internet issues, random system bugs are also among the potential triggers. Any app could bump into a similar problem when the system is acting up. Thus, troubleshooting system issues on the device is also needed. In-app glitches are also among the factors that you should consider ruling out in this case.

If the available storage of your device is less than 1 gigabyte, then you have to free up space by deleting old and unwanted contents.

What to do if Modern Ops keeps lagging and freezing?

First Fix: Force Stop Modern Ops then relaunch it.

Background apps and services hogging most of the device’s resources can also cause this game to slow down. Thus, if you’ve left some apps open and running in the background, end them all then retry launching Modern Ops. Here’s how to execute this command:

  • Open the Settings app.

A restart does not only refresh the system but also corrects any errant apps and services that might have caused Modern Ops to slow down. So if you haven’t already, reboot your device either by turning it off completely or use the Restart command from the power options.

Third Fix: Clear app cache and data.

Clearing the game’s cache and data can also help improve its performance. If lagging and freezing are tied to some corrupted cache or residual data from the app’s storage, then clearing them out could be the required solution. Here’s how:
