How Long Does it Take to Beat Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War (1)

How long does it take to beat Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War? Now that is a question!

Available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a phenomenal package, as ever. It has an action-packed single-player campaign, fast-paced online multiplayer, and a horrifying co-op Zombies mode. It has something for everyone, basically. But how long does it take to complete?

When it comes to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War‘s campaign, don’t be surprised if you beat it in around five or six hours if you play on recruit or regular difficulty levels.


If you want to get all of its achievements or trophies, however, you’ll have to beat it on Veteran or Realistic, which may take you much longer.

This year, the campaign has optional side-missions too, and multiple endings. So if you want to see and do everything the campaign has to offer, add a couple of hours to that playing time.

It’s a pointless task trying to articulate how long it will take you to beat the rest. Can you even “complete” Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War‘s multiplayer mode? Not really. Basically, then, if you buy the game and just play its campaign you’re going to get about five to ten hours of play out of it unless you play on Veteran or Realistic difficulty and get stuck.

If you dive into its multiplayer and Zombies mode, though, you could find yourself playing it nearly everyday for the next year or so.
