Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players rejoice. Your prayers have been answered. The latest update lets you delete content to save space on PC, which has been a long time coming. Here’s everything you need to know on how to do it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s biggest problem is its absurd file-size. It was large enough to begin with, but a series of hefty updates has made it around 200 GB. Thankfully, that’s about to change. 

The latest update has made it possible for PC players to uninstall unwanted parts of the game to save space. It’s something that should have been introduced a long time ago, but at least it’s finally here.

Call of Duty’s install sizes have spiked massively in the past few years. Whereas Black Ops 2 (10GB) and Modern Warfare 2 (16GB) were relatively small, more modern titles like Black Ops 3 (60GB) and World War II (90GB) have blown out hard.

Call of Duty game sizes have been creeping up over the last few years.

This issue has reached a head in the past year, with Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare install ballooning out drastically. Right now, the full game install clocks in at 175 gigabytes on PC hard drives, which can often be half the full size of the HDD.

Now, after so long, there’s two simple words in the latest patch that every Modern Warfare players have longed to hear (or read) for a very long time: “Modify Install.”

If you want to know how to do it, we’ve got you covered, courtesy of Infinity Ward.

How to uninstall spare Modern Warfare content

  1. First, you’ll need to make sure Call of Duty: Modern Warfare isn’t running or updating in the background.
  2. Then, open the Battle.net Launcher and select Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the menu on the left-hand side.
  3. Next, select the options menu in the upper left-hand part of the launcher screen and click on “Modify Install.”
  4. After that, it’s as simple as clicking on “Game Content” and selecting “Modify Install.”
  5. From there, you’ll be able to see a list of all the different things you can uncheck to uninstall, including Campaign, Multiplayer, and Special Ops.
  6. Once you’ve unchecked what you need to, all that’s left to do is click “Confirm” and “Start Install.”

Your PC will thank you after you’ve removed a few unnecessary slices of the huge Modern Warfare install.

Unfortunately, for those who prefer multiplayer, Warzone cannot be uninstalled, so you’ll need to settle for removing one or both of the other modes. Still, it’s better than nothing, and let’s be honest, it’s probably worthwhile to keep Warzone installed since it’s the most popular mode.

From that point onwards, all that’s left to do is wait and watch a good chunk of your sacred disk space slowly come back from the dead.

The Milano 821 SMG has started to stand out from the pack during the Black Ops Cold War beta. So, we’ve got a few classes you can use once it starts back up again. 

As we creep ever closer to the release of Black Ops Cold War, CoD fans have had their chance to get involved with early access through the Alpha and Beta. 

In the Alpha, weapons like the XM4 and AK74U immediately stood out – especially in the hands of Call of Duty League pros. In the Beta, however, other weapons have got their moment in the spotlight.

The Milano, otherwise known as the Uzi, has been making a case to be known as the best SMG around. So, if you want to rock it like the pros do, we’ve got a few helpful set-ups that should help when the Beta starts back up again.

Close-quarters loadout for Milano 821

This first set up is perhaps better suited to objective game modes or when you want to really get up close and personal with an enemy.

Equipping the steady aim laser as the body, with the Foregrip as the underbarrel, and the Impact Handle as the handle will give you better control in tight situations. The Tactical Stock also helps on top of that. 

The 8.8 Extended barrel will help the weapon’s muzzle speed. This is the sort of setup that you can rip through unsuspecting enemies with if you manage to hit a well-timed flank. 

  • Barrel: 8.8 Extended 
  • Body: Steady aim laser
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Handle: Impact Handle
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

Minimal recoil loadout for Milano 821

If your playstyle is more reactionary rather than barreling in headfirst and leading the attack, well, you’ll need to be able to draw the 821 out a little quicker than usual. 

Well, that’s where the Quickdraw Handle and Tactical Stock come into play. You’ll be able to draw the weapon much with them attached, while the Foregrip and Muzzle Break will help with the recoil. 

  • Barrel: 9.7 Cavalry Lancer 
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 9
  • Handle: Quickdraw Handle
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

While these loadouts and weapon setups are helping some players, you might find that a tiny tweak helps you. Say, adding a magazine instead of a barrel or muzzle.

Though, you won’t know until you try it out. If you haven’t been able to get into the Black Ops Cold War beta so far, it opens up again on October 15-16 for Xbox, PS4, and PC early access players. October 17-19 will be the open for everyone period, so you will get a chance to test it if you want to.
