How to Port Forward Afro Samurai

Afro Samurai is Namco Bandai Games's Action and Hack & Slash game with a release date in 2009.

Afro Samurai offers the following styles of gameplay.

  • Games that are considered action are all about centering the player in the middle of an evolving situation.
  • Hack-and-slash style games heavily emphasize combat. They generally involve slaying lots of waves of creatures.

Port Forward Afro Samurai

When you are playing Afro Samurai you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and on occasion even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.

Before You Forward a Port

Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:

  • The IP address of your router.
  • The IP address of the device that the game will play on: either your computer or your console.
  • The TCP and UDP ports to forward.

How to locate your Router's IP Address
