Now that Modern Warfare 2 has fully launched, players may have more choices about which parts of the game they install, especially if storage space is a concern. Here’s how you can uninstall the campaign to free up some extra space on your preferred platform.
Modern Warfare 2 officially launched on October 28th, though PlayStation players were given a week of access to the campaign to earn exclusive rewards for multiplayer and, upon launch, Warzone 2.
Whether you’ve already finished the campaign or need to free up more space, there are plenty of options depending on the platform you’re playing on.
Here’s what you need to do.

- Place them above Modern Warfare 2 in the main menu.
- Click the Options/Start button.
- Select ‘Manage Game Content’.
- Select the packages you want to uninstall.

Between campaign packs 1 and 2, PS5 players can save around 30GB of storage spaceAnother 2GB lost if you also choose to remove the Co-Op package.
Uninstall the MW2 campaign on Xbox
The process of removing the MW2 campaign on Xbox is similar to PlayStation. Here are the steps to follow:
- Go to your Games/Apps page.
- Hover over Modern Warfare 2.
- Click Start.
- Select ‘Manage game and add-ons’.
- Select ‘Campaign’.

Uninstall the MW2 campaign on your computer
Uninstalling the Modern Warfare 2 campaign on PC is different depending on which platform you use between Steam and Battle.net.
Steam users should do the following:
- Go to your game library.
- Find Modern Warfare 2.
- Right click on Modern Warfare 2.
- Click on ‘Properties’.
- Scroll down to DLC and check/uncheck the content you want to delete.
Unfortunately, if you play on Battle.net, it’s not that easy The platform currently does not allow you to uninstall the MW2 campaigncalling it “must have” content.
The campaign is considered “required content” on Bnet and cannot be uninstalled.
It’s worth noting that uninstalling this content isn’t a permanent move: if you want to download it again, you can follow the same steps, but download the Campaign or Co-Op packs instead of uninstalling them.
With the ever-increasing amount of storage space required by modern AAA games, being able to uninstall certain content is becoming crucial, which may be even more important when Warzone 2 launches on November 16th.
