MW2 2022 Campaign Length & How Long to Beat

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (2022) has another incredible Campaign to experience, but how long will the single-player content take to complete?

If you’re hopping into MW2 on release day, you’ve got plenty to enjoy. From Campaign to Multiplayer, and even Spec Ops, it’s hard to know where to spend your time.

And on top of that, the release date of Warzone 2 and DMZ is just around the corner, giving players even more options to satisfy that COD craving.

But whether you’re playing MW2 early or you’ve been waiting patiently to get started, the Campaign is one of the best things on offer right away. Here’s how long it takes to beat the game’s story mode:

How Long Does It Take to Beat the MW2 Campaign?

The MW2 2022 campaign length is roughly 6-8 hours. There are 17 missions, so on average, each mission takes 25-30 minutes to complete. Of course, this time will differ depending on how much of a completionist the player is, and what difficulty they’re playing on.

You can check out all of the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign missions here, for an in-depth look at what’s in store.

For reference, Modern Warfare 2019’s Campaign took around 6 hours to complete, meaning this story is just a little longer than its predecessor.

Call of Duty Vanguard also boasted a 6-hour-long Campaign, as did Black Ops Cold War, meaning that this is our longest campaign in some time.

How Long to Complete Every MW2 Campaign Mission

MissionTime to Complete
Strike~6 mins
Kill or Capture~21 mins
Wetwork~8 mins
Tradecraft~7 mins
Borderline~11 mins
Cartel Protection~13 mins
Close Air~10 mins
Hardpoint~11 mins
Recon By Fire~40 mins
Violence and Timing~25 mins
El Sin Nombre~25 mins
Dark Water~14 mins
Alone~32 mins
Prison Break~35 mins
Hindsight~4 mins
Ghost Team~21 mins
Countdown~20 mins

Adding in time for cutscenes, this brings Modern Warfare 2’s Campaigns up to a 6 hour runtime, but it’ll be higher for those on more challenging difficulty levels.

And that’s not the end of the MW2 story. After all, we’ll likely see Infinity Ward continue the storyline through seasonal Multiplayer updates.

And what’s more, we’ve even heard that Campaign DLC for MW2 is coming next year alongside a classic COD map pack!

If the rumors are true, the game’s Campaign may get a major expansion, with even more single-player content to enjoy.

And don’t forget that you can unlock these Campaign rewards in Modern Warfare 2, even before the game officially launches!

I pre-ordered for ps5. Installed early campaign access.Got an update about an hour ago and now I've lost all progress.WTF?! I've been online searching for fixes. Tried those and nothing worked. Now I have to start over completely. I hope cod makers recognize the problem and make it right for players that lost everything. Time is hard to come bye when you have a family so it will take me a long time to get back to my previous campaign level. Not very happy about having to restart. And I probably won't pre-ordered another COD game in the future unless they make it right to all the players they have lost their time. Being a company they know that time is money! So how much time/money have players lost because of update?!All of that being said, the game itself is awesome! Graphics, story line, all of it! It's great! Oh yeah, except the corrupt data bug in the update!That part blows! Maybe make sure there are no bugs before submitting an update next time please!!

I’d like to know if there will be more missions to the campaign when the whole game is released

@Arnold perez, no. The version you're currently able to play is the FULL campaign.

Nothing new will be added for it next week.
