Modern Warfare and Warzone are among the most popular games in the world right now but, as they come bundled together, they take up a serious amount of hard drive space. But, there is a way to cut out the extras so you can just keep the parts you want to play.

Some people’s Modern Warfare installations take up in excess of 200GB of space which, for PS4 and Xbox One users that don’t have the Pro editions or an upgraded hard drive, means half of their storage space is gone.

For many, this has been a massive pain, with the need to delete other games just for a small Warzone update meaning you’re essentially getting locked into playing the battle royale title or the main Modern Warfare game. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and with Season 6 now officially out, you need to save that hard drive space more than ever.

The recent Season 3 update to Modern Warfare made for some hefty additions to players’ hard drives.

Delete Campaign / Spec Ops on PS4 and Xbox

Thankfully, Infinity Ward has made the process easier than ever before to clear up space.

With Season 6 dropping and an extra update, here’s how you can delete the campaign and/or Special Ops modes from your hard drive.

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
  2. At the main menu, select Options
  3. Go to General and scroll to Game installs
  4. Highlight any content you want to delete, then select Uninstall
Uninstall campaign spec ops on ps4

You can select parts of the game to uninstall here.

Once you have deleted components, you can reinstall them at any time from the platform’s store.

On Xbox One, there is another way to delete Campaign and Spec Ops.

  1. Hover over the Modern Warfare icon on your Xbox but DON’T start it
  2. Press the Menu button to bring up a list of options
  3. Hover over whichever parts you want to uninstall and press the Menu button
  4. Select ‘Uninstall’ on whichever modes you want to remove

Obviously, if you’re not entirely sure on something, hold on to it just in case, but anything about the Campaign or Spec Ops can be removed and save a serious amount of space.

Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War is upon us, and while most players are excited about all of the new content arriving in the game, some are literally being prevented from playing the game after downloading the update.

Call of Duty is no stranger to bugs and glitches, ranging from minor annoying graphical bugs in Warzone to game-breaking glitches in the multiplayer experience.

Now, players are experiencing a whole new level of game-breaking bugs, as they can’t even get into the game.

The February 24 update was due to be an exciting one for fans, but now players are reporting that they can’t even load up the game at all.

BOCW players have to buy the game again?

After sitting through the painstaking download process, with Call of Duty games these days always growing in size, you just want to start the game up, see what’s new, and start ranking your Battle Pass up.

However, multiple players are reporting that the BOCW Season 2 update is leaving them in a loop, with the game asking them to purchase it, even though they already own it.

One user who experienced this was eortiz13 on Reddit, who reported that the game is asking him to re-purchase it before sending him to a screen that says he already has a copy.

just updated my game and now it wants me to re-purchase, but redirects me to a screen that says i already own it. cant even open up the menu. anyone else experiencing this? from r/blackopscoldwar

How to fix the issue

It seems that most people reporting this issue are playing on Xbox, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s limited to Microsoft’s console.

Here are some suggested fixes from other users on Reddit or those who have experienced it:

  • Contact Activision and Microsoft Support to see if they can help
  • Go to ‘Manage Game’ and ensure all content packs are installed
  • Uninstall then reinstall the game

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this issue, but it’s something either Activision or Microsoft will want to ensure is fixed as soon as possible,
