In online co-op? That depends entirely on the strength of the host's internet connection. The best way to ensure you personally have the least lag is to host a game yourself.

If you're having lag on a LAN network, then you need to upgrade your network infrastructure.

If you're lagging in Single player games, then you need to downgrade your game settings and/or upgrade your hardware.

u need 2 connect 2 games with less than 350ms pings. anything more than that will b affected by distance related lag.

if u have serious lags on servers with ping less than 350ms, it could b their problem. asw servers get into a desync bug if not restarted regularly [at least 1x / 3 days], and many dedicated servers do not.

in any case, u can use mappack 1.3 autoexec.cfg file to combat lag on ur side. given decent network on ur side, u should have no trouble playing games on server's relatively close to u.

What are your computer's specs?
- CPU brand, model, and clock speed
- Available RAM
- GPU model and video RAM (if available)
- Operating System (Windows 7, XP, Ubuntu, etc.)
