Ghost Recon: Wildlands NAT Type Strict

In Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, up to 4 players are able to join a squad and play online co-op. In order to play Wildlands online with your friends, at least one of your squad members will need to have NAT Type Open (Xbox One or PC) or NAT Type 2 (PS4) so that everyone else will be able to connect to them.

If you are having a difficult time trying to play Ghost Recon: Wildlands online, it may be due to your connection to the internet. If you are seeing NAT Type Strict (Xbox One or PC) or NAT Type 3 (PS4) in the game lobby then you will not be able to connect to some players. This can make playing Wildlands online difficult for you and cause you to waste time waiting for compatible players to team up with. Try to get NAT Type Open (Xbox One or PC) or NAT Type 2 (PS4) which allows you to connect to most players and will also make it possible for you to be lobby host.

Forwarding ports in your router may be your solution to getting a better internet connection. Forwarding ports in your router makes a direct connection between you and the other players on your squad. If you want to be squad leader during online co-op you will need to forward ports. Another benefit to forwarding ports is being allowed to host the game which means less lag time for you.
