What is Desync and How Can We Reduce It?


Imagine you’re in the middle of an intense game. Maybe it’s a battle and you’re shooting, imagine you’re just a few points from winning. You take the winning shot and your game momentarily lags so your enemy kills you while you are still in cover. Then you discover your opponent took the shot first and you’ve lost…all because your game lagged.

What is Desync?

In the game designing, desync is that server issue in which real-time movements of the hitbox didn’t get registered in the server or get registers lately. It’s the most deplored and common problem that gamers encounter. Game developers are rolling out server patches to eliminate most instances of the character moving out of sync in your game and on the live server.


There are Two Types of Desync in Gaming

One is where your latency related to the server is not equal, implying that the packets of data sent to your device have to be put together via the PC. Your PC can lag frames due to latency, issues in tandem with the frame rate. If your frame rate or v-sync is set to static 30 fps your computer usually puts the packets together before the frames cannot get put together fast enough due to the latency and packet size.

The other type of desync is when the server you are connected to is transmitting and receiving data at a different rate than your PC, and so there is a Mismatch between you and the servers. The packets of data sent to the game servers or received at your pc and so the packets sent to your computer are not in sync with the data running in live time on the game server. This is usually what we refer to as desync, And it is what causes frame drop in-game. So our characters can appear to move smoothly to make up for the desync.


How to Reduce Desync?

Desync is basically a desynchronization between your device and the server you are connecting to while playing games on that dedicated server. Majorly, games like PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile, and TARKOV experience desync because they have low MaxMessgSend and runs on low frame relay. Desync in these games can occur due to the issue of the problems faced at the server-side. So, to resolve these problems while playing CODM or other games, we have made a list of instructions that can help you reduce Desyc.

You can reduce desync in games like PUBG Mobile or COD Mobile or TARKOV, etc. in following ways:

  • Usually, move far away from a fight and allow the server to resync.
  • By reducing your ping.
  • If you keep getting high ping, change your Internet Service Provider.
  • Set the in/out transmission rate at 250kbps.
