Call of Duty: MW2 campaign missions list 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 may have the same name as your favourite CoD game but this one is actually a direct sequel to the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot. As such the campaign is set in the year 2022, follows Task Force 141, and has 17 missions to work through.

Here's the MW2 missions list:

  • Strike
  • Kill or Capture
  • Wetwork
  • Tradecraft
  • Borderline
  • Cartel Protection
  • Close Air
  • Hardpoint
  • Recon By Fire
  • Violence And Timing
  • El Sin Nombre
  • Dark Water
  • Alone
  • Prison Break
  • Hindsight
  • Ghost Team
  • Countdown

Depending on your playstyle and whether you go after extras during your playthrough, you can finish the Modern Warfare 2 campaign in around six hours. If you're more of a completionist, you should expect to take closer to 12 hours to finish everything.
