I don't know what it is, but it feels like every time I play on Exile lately, the game just lags heavily. A great example is the game I just left a few seconds ago, where I ran up and got in the Banshee, and then proceeded to fly around the map, half damaged, not able to actually fire any shots, and then I randomly got turned around and died.
It feels like it happens more on this map than any other.
Yeah, I've had one or two Big Team matches where we all start and right away, I'm dead and waiting to respawn while the other team is up by 20 points and we'd only just started the match and seen ourselves at the original spawn locations. --- Getting awfully tired of GameFAQs mods removing my posts for being "offensive" when I've done nothing wrong
For me it lags when there is a moment where a large amount of action, such as explosions, is occuring. It might be that my xbox, which is old, can not handle it but im not sure if that is the same for everyone so maybe next time you can try and see when exactly you experience the lag. If its brief lag it is most likely due to the xbox handling a large amount of events/elements at one time.
Other than that you can attribute this lag to 343i's god awful matchmaking system, it is just terrible.
