I enjoy online multiplayer gaming as a past time and although I enjoy using a VPN to keep even my gaming sessions safe and encrypted, I know it can give a hit to my ping and such. I never tried AirVPN with online gaming yet but I wonder if anyone, from experience, can tell me if it is indeed a suitable VPN for online gaming.

Otherwise, what other VPN service can anyone suggest for just gaming while still using AirVPN for other online activities?

Thanks.

Hello
I have been using Airvpn for gaming (unlock voice-chat) for almost 2 years now.
It works great. it adds around 5 to 10 latency only, and the best thing is. There are no ping spikes at all.

Nevertheless, you can get the free trail for 3 days and try the vpn with your game.

Hello!

Yes, it absolutely is. Just ensure you're connected to a location which is good for your specific situation/location and perhaps even using the UDP protocol.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

I sometimes do abit of multiplayer and using SSL with a local server I get around 40 ping which is more than adequate....

I used this VPN in games, but unfortunately the ping upset me. It was too big. I had to use another paid VPN. I decided to use another VPN in games because of the fast and stable connection, but I use AirVPN on the Internet. Edited ... by giganerd

Out of interest, what about ExpressVPN?

I never used it but I heard it is one of the fastest and secure VPN providers out there
next to NordVPN (Although I wouldn't touch that with a ten-foot pole anymore thanks to this bombshell.)

That's surely because it's always at least in the top 3 in pretty much every "VPN review" blog, along with NordVPN.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

If you're in the States you might find a server that fits your needs. In Europe (except for NL) and South America many of NordVPN servers are overloaded as hell, my ping was horrible. Half of the servers had a usage of 100% according to the NordVPN-app, half of the <50% servers hardly give a response anyway. Might take some time to find a suiting one.
