Black Ops 4 Blackout Connection Interrupted: How to Fix Blackout Lag

If you’re being hit with the Black Ops 4 Blackout “Connection interrupted” error, don’t feel like you’re alone. I’ve personally been experiencing unplayable lag since the Blackout beta began, as well as other errors including “Game session no longer available” and “Could not contact matchmaking service.” Needless to say, these errors are extremely frustrating, as they prevent us from getting stuck into the latest battle royale experience. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to try and fix the Black Ops 4 Blackout lag. Here’s what you need to know!

Black Ops 4 Blackout Connection Interrupted: How to Fix Blackout Lag

One positive thing about the Black Ops 4 Blackout “Connection interrupted” error is that it usually shows up as you’re joining the server. Immediately knowing that the match is going to be plagued with lag should allow you to quickly hit “Quit Game” and try to find a better one. It would be even more annoying to have the game start to lag out after you’ve collected a good bit of loot and set yourself up for the endgame!

You can also try to reset your console and/or router, which could well solve your lag problems.

Black Ops 4 Blackout Game Session No Longer Available Error Fix

The Black Ops 4 Blackout “Game session no longer available” error is a nuisance, kicking you out of the lobby and back to the main menu. Just when you think you’ve found a stable match, your dreams are crushed and you’re forced to start again!

Hopefully Treyarch works quickly to remedy these problems. For now, the only “Game session no longer available” fix is to keep on trying to get into a match. Sad, I know!

Black Ops 4 Blackout Could Not Contact Matchmaking Service Error Fix

Yet another common error is the Black Ops 4 Blackout “Could not contact matchmaking service.” Like the above problem, this error can appear at any time leading up to the round start.

If you’re on the hunt for a Blackout “Could not contact matchmaking service” fix, then it’s the same as before: there’s no official solution given, but you can keep on trying to find a game.
