Need help. This problem hasn’t gone away since early in the year 2020 near the release of Halo 2 on PC, or soon after.
9 out of 10 times I load up Halo:MCC on PC I get “Contacting server” issues not allowing me to join multiplayer games. I can check the Xbox companion application and it says I have a NAT type:Strict. Well okay, but that doesn’t make sense when I can go right over to Call of Duty:Warzone and it informs me that I have a NAT type:OPEN and I have no problems joining a game, using a headset/mic etc…
I’ve tried messing with my router, removing my router completely and plugging the modem in straight to my PC, signing in and out on Halo:MCC, signing in and out on the Xbox Game bar app and nothing fixes this issue to get me online–but what gives? Only once in a while can I seem to get through after waiting a while. I’ve seen the Xbox “fix” link on this, but it’s really not the issue in my opinion since ONLY Halo:MCC is giving me this issue. Every other online multiplayer game works fine.
I’m on Windows 10, not sure what other information would help.
