    Hi, I've been having an issue where in games my bullets don't connect as quick as they should when shooting people in the game, it has to be a network issue cause it doesn't happen offline. Anyway I got sick of the issue so I factory reset my modem and for the first couple hours I had unbelievable bullet connection online until my family had connected there other Xbox's then it slowed down and when conducting a speed test on xbox it says my speeds are fine and my ports are already forwarded to my Xbox one, so is there anything I can do to maybe improve my connection for online games? I have plenty of bandwidth (350 down, 20 up) I feel like it has to be a port issue, if anyone has any type of solution I would appreciate it.

    A connectivity issue would affect the game connectivity, not just a portion of a game (ie: bullets). If there was a port issue, the Xbox likely wouldn't connect to the internet or game server.

    Also, the bandwidth of the connection (350/20) is mostly irrelevant. The "speed" that is important, is the latency from you to the game server. Latency can be checked using a simple ping. That will show the time it takes to reach the server and return. Lower is better. I haven't used Xbox in awhile, but games used to show the latency to the server to which you were connecting.

    Are you using ethernet or wifi? The fact that it is worse with multiple devices connected sounds like a hardware/congestion issue.
