If V Rising lagging so bad when playing the PVP mode then this might be caused by a poor internet speed. You can quickly check the status of your connection by running a speed test using online websites such as speedtest.net.

The three important items you need to take note of during the speed test are the ping, download, and upload speeds.

A low ping between 50ms to 100ms is good to average. Anything higher than this will affect your online game. Your download and upload speeds should match what you are subscribing for from your ISP.

Time Needed : 3 minutes

Checking your internet speed

  1. Open a browser.

    You can use any browser you want. I will be using Chrome for this example.Open a browser

  2. Go to speedtest.net.

    This is an online speed test tool that is free to use.Go to speedtest.net

  3. Click on Go.

    This will start the speed test then show you the ping, download, and upload results.Click on Go

If the results re not good then try performing the following steps to improve the connection.

  • Turn off your computer.

  • Wait for a minute then plug your modem and router back into the power source.
  • Wait until the lights turn back on.
  • Turn on your computer.
  • Reconnect your computer to the internet. If possible try using a wired connection instead of a wireless connection.

If your computer is using Wi-Fi to connect to the network then here’s what you can do to get a stable internet connection.

  • Try to disconnect other devices connected to the Wi-Fi router while you play V Rising. This will allow the device to use the maximum internet bandwidth.
  • Move the computer closer to the router when playing V Rising. This will allow the device to get a much stronger Wi-Fi signal.
  • If you have a dual band router try to connect to the 5Ghz band instead of the 2.4 GHz band.

Solution 3: Update graphics drivers of your PC

Another factor that can cause your game to lag is if your computer is using an outdated graphics driver.
