@Pyrex BLJ Is correct. BO2 is getting old now. But i may have a solution. I haven't tested it yet but.

C++:
toggleforcehost()
{
    if(self.hostingforce == 1)
    {
        setdvar("party_searchResultsMin", 9990);
        setdvar("party_searchResultsLifetime", 9990);
        setdvar("party_searchPauseTime", 9070);
        setdvar("lobby_partySearchWaitTime", 9070);
        setdvar("matchmaking_debug", 1);
        setdvar("ping_searches_per", 0);
        setdvar("party_hostmigration", 0);
        setdvar("party_connectToOthers", 0);
        self.hostingforce = 0;
        self iprintlnbold( "Force Host+: [^2ON^7]");
    }
    else
    {
        setdvar("party_searchResultsMin", 0);
        setdvar("party_searchResultsLifetime", 45);
        setdvar("party_searchPauseTime", 0);
        setdvar("lobby_partySearchWaitTime", 0);
        setdvar("matchmaking_debug", 10);
        setdvar("ping_searches_per", 0);
        setdvar("party_hostmigration", 1);
        setdvar("party_connectToOthers", 1);
        self.hostingforce = 1;
        self iprintlnbold( "Force Host+: [^1OFF^7]");
    }
}
Sometimes tweaking the Force Host code can warrant better results. Idk if it'll make a bigger difference or not. But hey its something you can try.

EDIT: Also an open NAT type never hurt anybody either. If you don't have one. call your ISP and see if you can arrange it. That will definitely make a difference.

Just set the search preference to any that will help improve, if you want it faster search you modem default gate way and that will take you straight to the ISP's website, log in, most ISP user names and passwords will be "Username = Admin Password = password" find port forwarding and use UDP only ports 3074 for both if you use TCP/UDP it will work but will cause issues later down the road and TCP just wont work at all. Fixed my issue by like 50% if not just vpn and change region to one that is more populated with the game.

Also the port forwarding will only work on one IP so make sure you set it to your PCs IP

If you want any help settings up I don't mind help just dm me

NOTE: this is a lot harder on a router
