MW2 mission list and rewards

The Modern Warfare 2 campaign has 17 missions, and as with previous Call of Duty campaigns, the action is split across various continents and gameplay types as it jumps between the perspectives of multiple characters.

Although inspired by the original Modern Warfare 2 that released in 2009, this iteration is a continuation of the story rebooted in 2019's Modern Warfare, with a largely different plot - so get ready for some surprises!

For completing each mission, you'll get one reward that can be used in MW2's multiplayer, Special Ops, and Warzone 2.0 modes, and you'll also receive a blueprint for completing all seventeen missions on any difficulty.

Here's the complete Modern Warfare 2 mission list and campaign rewards for each mission:

The Union Guard blueprint reward comes with four pre-equipped attachments:

  • Aim OP-V4 Reflex Optic
  • SZ 1MW PEQ Laser
  • FSS Covert V Silencer on the Muzzle

How long to beat MW2 campaign explained

How long it takes to beat MW2's campaign depends on what difficulty you play on, and whether you're trying to get any Trophies or Achiements along the way - like opening all the safes for the 'Gentleman Thief' accolade.

Generally speaking though, if playing on Recruit or Regular difficulty and only focusing on clearing each level, it'll take six to eight hours to beat the campaign in Modern Warfare 2.

Although there are more missions than normal, some are shorter, making this the usual length of a Call of Duty game.

Good luck playing through the campaign!
