Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update lets PC players uninstall campaign/multiplayer/Spec Ops to save space

The Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare October patch is here.

As promised, Infinity Ward rolled out the latest update for Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare. The patch is roughly 10GB (20GB on PC) in size, and its biggest highlight is that it finally makes it possible for PC players to remove modes they're not playing

This process can only be done after downloading the patch, and it's available on the launcher, not through the game. In fact, Modern Warfare needs to be closed for you to be able to uninstall what you no longer need.

Infinity Ward confirmed that Warzone cannot be uninstalled, but you will be able to remove the Spec Ops co-op mode, the single-player campaign and even regular multiplayer. It goes without saying that those options will only be available to owners of the full game, not free-to-play Warzone players.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - how to uninstall campaign/Spec Ops/multiplayer to save space on PC

  • 2. Select Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from the panel on the left.
  • 3. Select the Options menu on the upper left-hand portion of the launcher.

Outside of a new round of stability fixes on PC, and a few other miscellaneous bug fixes, today's patch also brought a couple of balance changes. The SP-R 208 got hit with another nerf, this time with a reduction to its minimum damage at range in Warzone. The Kar98, on the other hand, is now more effective over distances thanks to a boost to its minimum damage at range.
