Opening Ports for Hitman 2 using Your Router

Hitman 2 is an Action and Adventure game published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released in 2018.

Hitman 2 includes the following genres of gameplay.

  • Action games are fast paced and tend to put the player in the middle of the action, requiring you to jump over obstacles, climb ladders, and shoot things.
  • In an adventure game you generally play through a story, usually as the protagonist. They rely heavily on story telling and can be inspired from books or movies.

Forward Ports for Hitman 2

When you are playing Hitman 2 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. 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.

  • The IP address of your router.
  • Your gaming machine's IP address.
  • The TCP and UDP ports to forward.
