Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare update reduces PC file size to 170GB

The new update for Modern Warfare allows you to remove modes you no longer play on PC, recovering around 63GB of storage.

You can’t fault Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare in terms of value for money but having three separate modes that are constantly being updated does have a downside: needing over 220GB of storage space for it all.

As promised though, Infinity Ward has released a new patch (which itself is 20GB on PC) that allows you to uninstall different modes to make more room – a feature that’s already available on consoles.

You can’t uninstall Warzone but you can remove Spec Ops, multiplayer, and the story campaign, depending on whether you want them or not. Assuming most people only want multiplayer that means you can get the install down to below 170GB.

Uninstalling the modes isn’t quite as simple as you might hope, as you have to go through the launcher and select the Modify Install option from the Options menu. Select Modify Install from the Game Content option and you’ll be able to choose from the following:

  • Campaign: 34.5GB
  • Multiplayer: 42.1GB
  • Spec Ops: 37.8GB

Technically you could try and remove all three but that would leave you with only Warzone, which is free-to-play anyway.
