I was wondering if upnp or port forwarding is better for Xbox or does it depend on the user

You can use one or the other to get an Open NAT type. It is totally up to you which one you want to use.

I don't think it matters tbh, some say a manual port forward will be better, but I think it's placebo. I use upnp

Hi Kev - if you learn what they do you'll find out it's actually placebo. UPnP opens your ports automatically, whereas Port Forwarding is a way of doing it manually. Anyone who tells you one is better for gaming than the other is fundamentally misunderstanding what they do :)

 

I'd stick with UPnP since that way you won't have to fiddle around manually,  it'll do it all for you. Let us know if you have any NAT issues!
