How to Port Forward Call of Duty: Black Ops II
When you are playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II 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 sometimes even faster.

- Locate your routers port forwarding section.
- Put the IP address of your computer or gaming console in the applicable box in your router.
