With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Warzone Season 6 seeing yet another 30GB update, some PC players may again see incredibly slow download speeds of 0.2MBs - this common problem makes it virtually impossible for some laptop and computer-based gamers to download the latest Warzone update.
Not only is the 0.2MBs speed annoying, but with the size of Warzone updates, means it's near impossible to actually download.

Luckily, a fix has been found that should resolve the issue for most PC gamers and speed up the download.
