NAT Strict


Network Address Translation (NAT) is a method used by routers to translate a public IP address (used on the Internet) into a private IP address (used on your home network) and vice versa.

When it comes to Boosteroid, you can run into NAT Strict type that causes connectivity issues in some multiplayer games.

This is mainly reflected in peer-to-peer games and games where the host is the player rather than the dedicated server.

However, that type does not affect the game on public servers.

Currently NAT Strict interferes with the following games:

  • Spintires: Mudrunner, Spintires: Showrunner

  • FIFA 21, FIFA 22 (when connected to friends)

  • Steep (when connected to friends)

  • Dying Light, Dying Light 2

  • Farming Simulator 19

  • Satisfactory

  • Total War Warhammer 2,3

  • Sniper Elite 5

  • Aliens: Fireteam Elite

  • Sid Meier's Civilization® VI

  • World War Z

  • theHunter: Call of the Wild™

  • Nioh: The Complete Edition

  • Saints Row®: The Third™ Remastered

  • Football Manager 2022

  • Total War: Saga TROY

  • Shadow of Tomb Raider
