EXPERIENCING LAG? FORWARD THESE PORTS
Hey guys, sorry for the all caps title! This is for anyone who is experiencing lag over the P2P connections in net play! Open these ports -

Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat
UDP 3478 (Outbound)
UDP 4379 (Outbound)
UDP 4380 (Outbound)

I had issues playing the game online (constant stuttering, freezing, etc) and now I can play against orange and yellow bars with little to no lag! Try it!

If you are inexperienced with opening ports, simply google the exact model name of your modem (found somewhere on the modem itself) and port forwarding, and you should find an instructional how to.

Thanks for finding this.

Are you sure it's 3478 and not 4378? Just checking.

Yes! In fact, just to be safe, here's the webpage with all the ports Steam and Steamworks use just so you can be extra sure.

My problem was always setting up the static IPs on all the computers instead of dhcp

Bumping to the top so people with lag issues can see this

I noticed these ports are not automatically forwarding for me like GFWL ports were so I added them. Thanks.

Seems to work for me so far.

Back to the top so people can fix their lag
mmm Jun 1, 2014 @ 12:24pm 
Yeah, it works. Thanks dude! This should be stickied.

for me not to change, bad online open ports.
Heroxoot Jun 1, 2014 @ 1:06pm 
It feels like regular crappy online again but I'm still dropping inputs more than it used to.
mmm Jun 1, 2014 @ 1:14pm 
^ Yeah, me too. Makes me think that something got ♥♥♥♥♥♥ up in the game itself.

there is not technical relation to open ports and game lag .... if there was a port issue you would not even be able to connect.

Well there is. I was being dropped out of games all the time, had TERRIBLE lag and stuff. Opened the ports (actually just set myself to DMZ because I'm lazy) and guess what, it works.

Came here to say exactly this. Also, outgoing... If you need to forward OUTGOING ports, you already know about it. If you aren't absolutely certain you need to, it is not required (not even for technical reasons, if you need to do it you will KNOW you need to).
