Ok, I feel like such a dummy. I’ve been stomping my feet that MW3 did not support dedicated servers. A fellow commenter, Dennis, pointed out that MW3 does support it but this feature needs to be enabled from the options menu.
Sure enough, there it was, staring me right in the face. Don’t know how I missed that, must of been to hasty just logging in and hitting play every time.
For those of you, I suspect very few as you all can probably read, that failed to see this option… here’s how to enable it.
Step 1: Go into OPTIONS
Step 2: Click DEDICATED SERVER
Step 3: Set ENABLE SERVER BROWSER to yes
Step 4: Back out and you’ll now see a SERVERS option. Click it
Step 5: Rejoice
Step 6: Thank Dennis
