Overview

This section covers hosting and joining matches online.

The best way to arrange matches is via the Discord Channel which is listed at the bottom of the main menu in the game.

When hosting or looking for matches in the Discord channel it is a good idea to let others know what region you are in. You can also edit your channel nickname to display the region code on the end e.g "Nickname [USW]" to indicate that you are in the US West Region.

You can download/sign-up/login to Discord here

Direct Match

This mode is best if you are behind a firewall the doesn't support NAT punch through and you can put a rule in allowing Invisigun traffic on port 7777 UDP (if the connection goes through a firewall box).

To set this up, host a match like normal and leave "Remote Players" set to LAN/Direct IP. You will need to provide the remote players your IP address to connect to. You can find your internet IP address by Google Searching "What's my IP".

If you are on the same local network (same subnet) players can just search for your match using 'Join Local Match' from the 'Play Matches Online' Menu.
