This games netcode is definitely not the worst(Ghost Recon Future Soldier takes that award by default), but MW3 is definitely better than this game. The lag you experience in this game is laughable at times when you hit a guy 5 times point blank with a shotgun and die in a second to his scorpion where in the killcam you were just dancing around not firing at all. I've had this game start lagging specifically for 1 person whenever he got near me and I would never be able to even shoot. This game is bad, but not the worst. You want a crapshoot, go play Ghost Recon.
