Common Problems

  • I bought the game but I don't see the install option
  • I own the game but the app is telling me that I need to buy it

You can install Call of Duty: Modern Warfare through the desktop app

The game icon is missing from the App

If you cannot see the Modern Warfare icon:

  1. Click on All Games
  2. Click on Activision games
  3. Mark Modern Warfare as favorite 
Before you click Install you can select the content you wish to install: CampaignMultiplayer or Special Ops. Check our Selective Installation support article for more information.

The App asks me to buy the game

Make sure you are logged in with the correct account email.

If you purchased the game on the Shop, log in to your Transaction History and check that your order status is Complete. If you purchased the game from a third party retailer, talk to your point of sale. If you received the game as a gift, talk to the person who gifted you the game. 

The App asks me to install again

If the app shows the Install button but you have already installed your game, you don't have to reinstall. Click on Locate the game below the Install button to select the folder where you installed the game. Once you selected the correct folder, the Install button will become the Play button.
