What is a Lag Switch?

Simply put when you’re playing an online game there is an inbound signal and an outbound signal. When playing normally both allow the data to flow freely but when someone uses a lag switch is cuts off the outbound connection without cutting the inbound one for a duration of 1 to 10 seconds. This allows the person to move around and attack while becoming temporarily impervious to attacks. Whatever you do during this time is cached up by the system and when the connection is restored your system syncs up. Your system will then register any damage you have taken as well as transmitting out what you did. Anything you did during this time will appear in a burst to your opponents. A Lag switch can provide a great advantage in shooters like Halo and Call of Duty especially in a 1v1; they are also used to glitch games in ways that would not be possible otherwise.
