How long is the ‘Modern Warfare 2’ campaign?

How long will it take you to answer the Call of Duty?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 comes with its very own single player campaign. As you take Captain Price and his merry band of special operations friends around the globe to save the world (again), you might be wondering how long the campaign actually is, anyway.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has 17 different story missions in locations all around the world, including Chicago, Amsterdam and a whole lot of time spent in Mexico. Some are stealth missions, while others offer full-scale battles and vehicular warfare. It’s a seriously varied experience, showcasing all of the new shooting mechanics included this year.

Here’s how long it takes to clear the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, and a mission list so you can see how far along you are.

Modern Warfare 2’s campaign will take around six hours to complete, although there are several achievements I didn’t get and a few paths I didn’t manage to explore the first time around. With this in mind, the campaign will probably take somewhere between five to seven hours for most players on Regular, with a little more time if you’re hunting down some of the game’s achievements, safe codes or just going full masochist and trying to get through the game on Veteran or Realism mode.

Campaign DLC has been promised at some point, so this length should flex, but we’ll come back and update this when that releases at some point in 2023. If you’re keen for more story in the meantime, Infinity Ward has promised that some of the Spec Ops missions will further the story and flesh out the world a little.
