With the Open NAT configuration on the AC86U, is it supported to configure multiple consoles or gaming laptops (multiple gaming profiles for different consoles and laptops connected to the same router)? Or is the Open NAT configuration only designed for one console or gaming laptop?
Okay, I think I've found the solution. Open NAT + Port Forwarding enabled only really work with one device, a console or gaming PC or laptop, as otherwise a 2nd, 3rd etc. device will face issues with the NAT Type (Moderate, Strict, etc.).

Therefore, I disabled Port Forwarding and just have UPnP enabled.
