Early access players confirm length of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 campaign

The casual gamer won't take longer than eight hours to clear through the single-player campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.


Call of Duty single-player campaigns don't take too long to finish. If you play the game on the easiest setting, most won't take you longer than eight hours to clear through the entire thing. It'll take even less time if you're an experienced Call of Duty player. Now that gamers have had a few days to mess around with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 via early access, we have a better idea of how long it will take to finish the MW2 campaign.

Length Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Campaign
Like previous Call of Duty titles, Modern Warfare 2 has a relatively short campaign.

According to gamers who've finished playing this year's Modern Warfare 2 campaign, the average gameplay time will be around 6-8 hours. This puts its length fairly close to the 2019 Modern Warfare remake, which was widely considered a success.

Length Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Campaign
In total, Modern Warfare 2's single-player campaign is made up of 17 missions.

The quality of the game's single-player campaign varies from person to person. At the very least, most seem satisfied with what MW2 has to offer. The consensus is that MW2 delivers on the hype but isn't necessarily a standout entry. Most also point out that there's enough variety with the mission types in MW2. Some are straightforward and take less than thirty minutes to complete. On the other hand, some missions will take longer and offer a sandbox-like experience.

Unfortunately, it's too late to pre-order Modern Warfare 2 to find out what the campaign is like ahead of everyone else.

If you didn't pre-order MW2, you'll have to wait until Friday, October 28, to see if you'll take as long to finish the campaign as everybody else. The good news is the bonuses for finishing the campaign will still apply.

Speaking of Modern Warfare 2, some players are claiming the RICOCHET anti-cheat system has banned them from accessing the single-player campaign. Finally, rumors suggest that Modern Warfare 2 will get a story DLC next year.
