As promised, Infinity Ward has released a new patch for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that allows PC players to reduce the title’s monstrous, 230+ GB footprint by uninstalling game modes that they have no interest in. According to a post shared on r/pcgaming, a total of 129 GB can be saved if you choose to tick all of the available options, which brings the minimum storage requirement to around 100 GB (the default/full installation size weighs in at 232 GB). Here’s the breakdown:

  • Removing Campaign: 34.53 GB saved
  • Removing Multiplayer: 42.12 GB saved
  • Removing Special Ops (Co-op): 37.83 GB saved
  • Removing Campaign + Special Ops: 72.37 GB Saved
  • Removing all three: 129.16 GB Saved

Unfortunately for Battle Royale haters, Call of Duty: Warzone is a permanent fixture that cannot be uninstalled. (It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what Activision is hinging the future of the franchise on.)

You’ll find Infinity Ward’s complete patch notes and instructions for uninstalling portions of Modern Warfare following the video break below.

New in this update, PC players can now select which content they’d like installed on their machines. Instructions on how to install specific content below!

Before removing installed content, be sure your Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game is not running, and the game is not updating.

  1. Open the Launcher.
  2. Select Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from the panel on the left.
  3. Select the Options menu on the upper lefthand portion of the Launcher.
  4. Select Modify Install to open the installation popup.
  5. Under Game Content, select Modify Install.
  6. Uncheck the content you wish to uninstall. (Warzone cannot be uninstalled.)
    • Campaign
    • Multiplayer
    • Special Ops
  7. Select Confirm.
  8. Select Start Install.


It is not possible to modify the installed content while updating. If your game is not up to date before you modify your content selection, the size estimates will not be accurate.
