[WaW] How to host a zombies server?


[WaW] How to host a zombies server?

Hey all,
I really want to play zombies with some friends, but can't for the life of me figure out why it won't work. I believe I've taken all the necessary steps but still can't get it to work. Players are able to join my lobby just fine, but when I start the game it either hangs at the loading screen forever or my friends get a connection error. However, when I host a regular multiplayer game such as FFA, everything works fine and people are able to connect no problem so long as I host it as a dedicated server (hosting as a listen server won't work, which seems like that might be connected to why zombies won't work).

Here is everything I've done so far:

  • Opened up all ports listed here
  • Set a bypass rule in my firewall
  • Ran the .exe as administrator
  • Replaced my .exe with the LAN fix (those connecting also tried it)
  • Set the max ping to 999
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled


PC Specs:

  • Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
  • Intel i7 5820K
  • 32GB DDR4
  • GTX 1080 4GB


Any help would be much appreciated.

Co/op zombies.
I'm on version 1.7.1263 which is whatever Steam automatically updated to.

I have gigabit internet, connecting wireless through a TP-Link Archer C7.

I've port forwarded all of these ports

Friends PC specs are comparable to mine, though I don't have all the details. We are all wireless.


Just sent you a friend request on Steam.
