Why does this fix work?
It seems that Call of Duty games are sometimes configured to have weird networking configurations. They need access to certain ports which the game doesn’t automatically make use of.
This happens on home internet connections which make use of routers to connect. This fix connects you to the internet through 3G/4G, so it bypasses this hurdle.

If playing the game through your hotspot connection isn’t feasible, we’ve gathered some other potential fixes which have worked for other players.
Opening forwarding ports for open NAT connection
The supposed reason for getting the BLZBNTBGS000003FB error is your networking ports are not properly configured.
If you change their configuration and open them, the error should disappear.
You need to open two ports: 3075 and 3076
Use this port forwarding guide to open the above ports. Once done, your issue should be resolved.
Sometimes your location might be causing the error to appear. Your ISP may not be connecting to the game servers properly and that’s why you’re experiencing the error. Using a VPN is a simple way to change your in-game location.
You can download any VPN and set your location to anywhere in Europe, since that’s where majority of the CoD servers are located.
It’s important to note that the stability of your internet connection plays a vital role in having a good VPN connection. If you regularly experience lag and delays, a VPN might make it worse.
If that’s the case, we recommend trying any of the other options instead.
