How to Open Ports for Advanced Warfare Using Port Forwarding

Advanced Warfare is perhaps the best multiplayer game on the planet. But, like all multiplayer games, the game servers sometimes suffer from unreliable or slow connections. That can slow down your game, or even kick you out of it.

There are some ways of improving your connection, though. One of the easiest is to enable port forwarding for Advanced Warfare. Opening your ports will give a more direct connection to the game’s servers, and make your connection more reliable. It’s also easy to do, especially if you follow this guide.

How to Enable Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Port Forwarding

Now you’ve got your ports, you need to log into your router and tell it to forward them. To do that, though, you’ll also need a few extra details about your console or PC.

So, before you start, make a note of the following, because you’ll need this info later:

  • Your router’s IP address
  • Your console or PC’s IP address
  • The ports that Advanced Warfare uses, and which you want to forward. Those are in the list above

If you don’t know how to find these details, don’t worry. Just head over to our guide on How to Forward Ports on your Router for Online Games. There, we explain how to find this info, and how to forward your ports for whatever game you want to play.

Anyway, back to the guide. Now you are ready to forward your ports. That’s easy:


The process for forwarding a port is generally:

  • Open a web browser window in your PC or on your console
  • In the address bar, type (or paste) the IP address of your router
  • That will bring up the settings for your router. In the settings, look for ‘port forwarding’
  • Once you’ve found it, your router will ask you for some details
  • Go ahead and enter your PC’s IP address in the box
  • Then enter the ports for Advanced Warfare. Those are above, in case you forgot them :)
  • Apply these settings, and then re-start your router
