How Many Missions Are There in the MW2 Campaign (2022)?

There are a total of 17 missions in the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign. This is 3 more than Modern Warfare (2019), which only had 14.

It is a huge step up from Call of Duty Vanguard, which only had 9 campaign missions. However, it is slightly less than Black Ops Cold War, which had 16 main and two optional side missions.

Are There DLC Missions For MW2 Campaign?

While no DLC missions have been confirmed by Infinity Ward, it has been rumored that campaign and multiplayer DLC are coming to Modern Warfare 2.

This rumor came from reliable leaker Hope, who not only revealed that it would be paid DLC but when it is coming and which maps are included.

Which Characters Do You Play As in the MW2 Campaign?

Throughout these 17 campaign missions, players will take on the role of the following characters:

  • Simon “Ghost” Riley
  • John “Soap” MacTavish
  • Kyle “Gaz” Garrick
  • Rodolfo Parra
  • Shadow Company

Fortunately, a lot of the voice actors from the previous game are reprising their roles, including one actress from the hit superhero show The Boys.

Do You Need to Play Modern Warfare 2019 to Play MW2?

To properly enjoy Modern Warfare 2 (2022), you will need to have played Modern Warfare (2019), as it references many of the characters and key plot points from that game.

However, like most Call of Duty games, the plot is fairly accessible to newcomers, as it features a mostly new cast of characters, including a new main character, John “Soap” MacTavish.

Captain Price from Modern Warfare

You do not need to have played the original Modern Warfare (2007) or Modern Warfare 2 (2009) to play MW2 (2022). The 2022 version of Modern Warfare 2 is an entirely different experience from the original games.

Can You Play MW2’s Campaign Missions Co-Op?

No, you cannot play Modern Warfare 2’s campaign co-operatively with friends either online or offline via couch co-op. The campaign missions are exclusively single-player.

However, just like in Modern Warfare (2019), you can play the Special Ops mode cooperatively alongside a friend either online or offline via couch co-op.
