Hardware Suggestions

As with most games, hitting the recommended requirements these days seems to be a must. With a game that offers as much explosive action as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you’ll want to be able to experience it in all its glory.

With the large amount of storage this game needs you may want to think about expanding your systems storage media. If you can invest in a large capacity SSD then this will prove to be a valuable asset for your load times. 

Activision has recently clarified the amount of disk space needed stating that “175GB is the storage space we recommend players keep available in order to download the post-launch content we’ll be bringing to Modern Warfare. At launch, the initial download will be smaller”. We’d recommend trying to keep around 175GB free anyway if you are planning on playing this game throughout its updates.

Some of these specs are quite hefty. If you’re looking to run this game at its max then you may want to look at one of our high-end build guides. If you aren’t looking to build your PC component by component, a pre-built PC may be a good option.
