Forwarding Ports in Your Router for Payday 3

Payday 3 is a First-Person, Action, Strategy, Stealth, and Shooter game published by Starbreeze Publishing released in 2023.

Payday 3 includes the following genres of gameplay.

  • First person games are played from the perspective of the player. They typically have a gun or other weapon held out in front, but this is not always the case. Many first person games are sometimes called "shooters" because the primary goal of the game is to shoot other players or creatures, but this is not always the case.
  • Action games are usually a bit faster than other games and require quick reflexes. You frequently jump platforms, shoot enemy mobs, climb ladders, and
  • In a strategy game the player is required to use skillful thinking and a strong focus on planning ahead in order to achieve victory over their opponent. They can be either single player against bots or multiplayer against other players. They come in both turn-based and real-time versions, the former allowing each player a chance to complete their turn, the latter having a continuous running clock without stopping. Resource management and exploration are common themes in strategy games.
  • In a stealth style game you use hiding, disguises, muffled clothing, and shadows to overcome antagonists. Sometimes in a stealth style of game you get the choice of taking the quiet approach or the direct approach of attacking the enemy. Stealth games frequently feature a strong strategy component as well.
  • In a shooter the player must have a very fast reaction time. Usually there i a weapon held out in front of the player that is used to target other players or enemies. They can be either single player or multiplayer. The single player versions usually have a short storyline with minor RPG elements. Call of Duty and Battlefield are some very popular examples.

Ports To Forward for Payday 3

Usually a game will only open up the port in "listen mode" when it's needed. This means you'll have to put your game into some sort of multiplayer mode in order for us to detect the specific incoming ports properly. We'll watch the game running and look for which ports it opens up to see which ports might need to be forwarded.

Usually games will use the same port every time they are launched so we only need to collect this port data once. Some games and applications use a random numbered port at each launch and we'll only be able to figure that out over multiple runs possibly even from multiple different users.

Some games will listen on a very large range of ports which can be very hard to detect. By having many different people run the Port Finder for the same game multiple times we can figure out the entire range of ports that are needed for that particular game. Everybody who runs the Port Finder helps out quite a bit.

How To locate Ports for Payday 3

Here's what Port Finder is going to do:

  • Look at which ports Payday 3 has open in "listen" mode. These are the ports that need to be forwarded for Payday 3.
  • Watch which ports open and close as you run the game and try to join a multiplayer match.
  • Package up the ports that need to be forwarded in your router in a neat little package and send it to our server for sharing.

As users submit port data to our servers we will combine it into a list that we publish. This will become the list that we recommend everyone forwards in their router.

As soon as we find the incoming ports for Payday 3 we will list them on this page.
