A day earlier than planned, Activision released the planned open beta for Call of Duty WWII. Thousands of players are already on the battlefield of World War II. But some players just can’t connect to the lobby. This is primarily due to your port releases in your firewall or router, also known as port forwarding. Whether your ports for Call of Duty: WWII are set correctly, you have to look in the game in the settings and there under the item system information. At least the item NAT type should be set to medium, as this ensures smooth gameplay in CoD WWII.
Ports required in Call of Duty: WWII
In order for Call of Duty: WWII to run smoothly, here is a list of the ports required for the game:
Call of Duty-WWII-PC Ports
- TCP: 3074,27015-27030,27036-27037
- UDP: 3074.4380.27000-27031.27036
Call of Duty – WWII – Xbox One Ports
- TCP: 53,80,3074
- UDP: 53,88,500,3074,3544,4500
Call of Duty – WWII – Playstation 4 ports
- TCP: 80.443.3074.3478-3480
- UDP: 3074.3478-3479
If you have a Fritz Box at home, you can simply activate UPnP. This allows you to allow programs on your PC to open and forward ports automatically. But I would only recommend it to a limited extent for safety reasons.
UPnP in the Fritz box
To open UPnP and the port forwarding of the Fritz Box, go to the Fritz Box settings with a browser and switch on the UPnP protocol as in my point with a FritBox7270 under Internet -> Releases. Alternatively, the ports for Call of Duty WWII can also be entered here by hand.

As a gamer, it can’t be wrong to open these ports so that you always get the best gaming experience. If you enjoyed Call of Duty WWII, you can pre-order it here for just a buck so you can jump into the action on November 3rd. What do you think of the CoD WWII Beta?
