Beast/Horde Mode Not Working

#1 Posted by JSwan13 (335 posts) -

Anybody else have this problem?

Whenever I try to play a matchmade Beast or Horde mode game it never connects to anyone. All it does is say, attempting to join match 1,2 etc. and will just do that for as long as your willing to stare at it, but if I invite friends to play it works fine. I'm thinking it's just an issue with the servers, but has anyone found a solution to this problem? Thanks.

Sorry bro, not having any trouble here. Played for about 2 hours yesterday. Have you tried opening your NAT? Also I dont know what that means but people say it when something online doesnt work

@GenghisJohn: I don't really know what that means either but my NAT is open.

It takes a little bit to find a game for me but it eventually does.

No problems here either, host even left and we got a migration super quick and smooth.

Beast doesn't work for me (up in vancouver canada). Horde works good tho.

I got a game of Beast going earlier. Had to leave the match making once, but started it back up and I got it working.

@JSwan13: If you are going through a router, try opening your ports for your Xbox. If you need help, look it up on

If you're alone, the Beast Mode matchmaking process seems to really take a while. It's a known issue at this point. Adding just a single friend makes finding and beginning a match quite a bit easier, though.
