How to delete Modern Warfare 2 campaign

The process of deleting the campaign is exactly the same for all versions of Modern Warfare 2. Here's how to free up some hard drive space:

  1. At the main menu, select Free Up Storage Space at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Select the campaign and press Uninstall.
  3. Press Yes, Uninstall to confirm the decision.

For PlayStation 5 users, select the game tile and head onto the Manage Game Content option. Then, select the bin icon next to the campaign file and press delete.

This method of deleting the campaign is based on Vanguard so it may differ once Modern Warfare 2 launches. If there are any differences in our deletion method, we will update the guide with all there is to know.

Should I delete the Modern Warfare 2 campaign?

If you've finished the campaign and have no intention of replaying it, it's worth getting rid of it and using the extra space but if you fancy returning to the story at a later date, we recommend keeping hold of it.


Call of Duty updates take up plenty of space and if you're running out of room ahead of a brand-new season, removing the campaign is the perfect solution. You can always re-install the single-player if you want to join forces with Task Force 141 once again.

That's how to delete the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. For more, check out our guide showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 maps heading to multiplayer.
