Let us talk about them in detail.
1] Check the Game’s Server
The very first thing we need to do is check the server status, if it is down or under maintenance, there is nothing you can do other than wait for the issue to be resolved by the developers. To do the same, you can use any of the mentioned free-down detectors, and if the server is down, there is nothing you can do.
2] Reset your router
If the server is up and running and you still get error code 345, the best solution is to reset your router. It is quite easy to do the same, all you have to do is press and hold the power button for a few seconds, and you will hear some sound or will see a blink. So, to do that, once your router is reset, connect your device to the network and then start playing the game.
This is a temporary fix and has worked for a lot of people for some time, but they have to keep resetting their router from time to time.
3] Connect to a VPN
It is very likely that the network that we are trying to connect to has some issues, in that case, we need to connect to a Virtual Private Network and then connect to the server. There are various free VPN services, so, you should start with them and once you conclude that they are improving the gaming experience, go for the premium subscription of the VPN service you like.
4] Connect to Mobile Hotspot
This might sound a bit weird but connecting to the Mobile Hotspot has worked for a lot of gamers. Since there is no harm in trying the same, we should enable Mobile Hotspot on your phone and then connect our gaming device to it. Once done, launch COD and check if the issue is resolved.
5] Do Port Forwarding
Blazing Gator error in COD is caused by port 3074 for type UDP. This issue can be resolved by doing port forwarding. You can contact your ISP, give them all details, and ask them to do port forwarding for you. Alternatively, you can check our guide on what is Port Forwarding and how to do it.
6] Use Ethernet
If the issue was resolved temporarily and you want a permanent solution, switch to a wired network by getting an Ethernet cable and connecting it to the router and your device. Using a wired network is always recommended for gamers, as it not only guarantees minimal latency but also helps us stay away from these network glitches.
Hopefully, our suggestions will help you resolve the issue.
