Quake Champions is the latest high speed, gore centric first person shooter from Bethesda Softworks released in 2017.
This time around you get to choose from a variety of Champions to fight with in the arenas. There are as many ways to slaughter your opponents as drops of blood on screen:
- You can be a snarky automotron tank with Clutch.
- Or you can leave high speed exploding plasma trailers with the roller queen Slash.
- Why not rocket jump your hoverboard with the punk Anarki?
All of those things will be faster and more reliable with a port forward setup in your router.
Also, if you are having connection issues while trying to play Quake Champions then you might want to try setting up a port forward.

- 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.

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.
How to Port Forward Quake Champions
When you are playing Quake Champions 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 on occasion 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.
Before You Forward a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- The IP address of your router.
- The IP address of the device that the game will play on: either your computer or your console.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
