How long does it take to beat the campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? After Black Ops 4 launched without a traditional single player experience, anticipation for a new Call of Duty story campaign to charge through is the highest it has been in years. With a number of writers and narrative leads returning from the original Modern Warfare to work on the reimagining, plus a shiny new game engine packed with graphical tricks and treats, there’s a lot for veteran CoD players to look forward to.

The length of Call of Duty campaigns has varied wildly in the past though, so if you’re only interested in playing the single player story then you may be hesitant about sinking your money into a short campaign. Similarly, if you don’t have much free time to sink into games then you may not want to start something you can’t finish. Whichever you are, we’ve got you covered as we’ve already played through the main campaign and can tell you how long it took us.

Of course there’s a lot more content to play through after the story’s credits roll, but for all you campaign purists, here’s how long it takes to complete the Modern Warfare campaign.

How long is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?

The main campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is roughly six hours long. Naturally, this will depend on what difficulty you play the game at and whether you’re rushing through the game or going at a leisurely pace – we were playing on the regular difficulty.

If you’re determined to make it through as quickly as possible then we expect that it’s possible to beat the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign in five hours, however, if you want to take your time then 7-8 hours is possible.

How many missions are in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign?

There are a total of 14 missions in the campaign of CoD: Modern Warfare. Some of the missions in the main campaign are very short, while others can take up to half an hour to battle through.

And there you have it, how long it should take you to finish the story of Modern Warfare, plus how many missions make up the campaign.
