What Do The Orange Squares Mean In Warzone?

Season 3 of Warzone is well underway and as players continue to drop into Verdansk and Rebirth Island, many will have encountered three small orange squares at some point during a match.

When it comes to Warzone, having the best connection is everything in order to ensure a smooth and lag-free experience, with some even using a VPN to avoid any kind of problem.

Despite taking all the measures to guarantee a strong connection, the orange squares may still appear, which can be annoying if it causes you to take an unintended trip to the Gulag.

But what exactly do these orange squares represent? Here's everything you need to know about them and the best ways to make them disappear.

The image above shows that if the three orange boxes appear during a match, you're experiencing packet loss.

Packet loss means that data between you and the game server is failing to send, which may result in lag, not ideal when you're trying to take down an opponent from over 500 metres away.

The lighter orange squares appear to warn you of the issue while the darker orange means that you're experiencing severe packet loss.

How To Fix Warzone Packet Loss

Thankfully, there are a few methods that will stop those pesky orange squares from appearing on your screen.

One of them is to make sure that you're not playing the game during a busy time when demand is high. The high demand is the most likely cause for packet loss and in order to avoid it, play a bit earlier or later on in the day when the demand has gone down.

Another way is by purchasing a VPN which I mentioned earlier. Using a VPN enables you to select from thousands of servers in order to guarantee the most stable and secure connection to play Warzone. By selecting the closest server, the packet loss should disappear completely.

If the issue persists, restart the router. If the boxes still appear, contact your ISP and Activision to see if they can assist.
