Modern Warfare 2 players who digitally pre-ordered the game can access the campaign early. These players may be wondering how long the campaign is and how many missions there are. We’ve got you covered below.

The Modern Warfare 2 campaign has finally arrived thanks to the early access period that lets players complete the entire story before the full game launches on October 28. Price, Soap, and the rest of Task Force 141 are back alongside some new faces.

If you’ve pre-ordered a digital version of Modern Warfare 2 and have early access or you plan on playing the campaign following the game’s official launch, we’ve got you covered with all of the missions you can expect to come across.

Here’s how long the Modern Warfare 2 campaign is along with a list of all the missions.

How long is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 campaign?

The Modern Warfare 2 campaign takes between 6 and 10 hours to complete. Of course, this will vary depending on the player and the difficulty, but you can expect to sink in between six and ten hours into the campaign before it comes to a close.

Although Modern Warfare 2 follows the tradition of short Call of Duty campaigns, there’s still a ton for completionists to discover. Completing every objective will require players to explore every inch of the campaign and its missions.

With the notable improvement made to enemy AI, raising the campaign difficulty in Modern Warfare 2 has more of an impact than ever. If you crank up the difficulty, expect the campaign to take longer to complete.
