The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2023) campaign kicks off with a bang, but its over-reliance on the new Open Combat Missions holds it back somewhat. You can read our full impressions here, including what we made of the story.

The latest Call of Duty campaign is out now and, if you're diving into the single-player component of this blockbuster first-person shooter (FPS), there's a high chance that you're going to want a full list of the Modern Warfare 3 campaign missions and all of their associated rewards.

In Modern Warfare 3, the rewards gained from the completion of missions during the campaign are for use in the online multiplayer mode, making them well worth getting even if you’re not particularly interested in seeing this new entry’s story content.

If this is the case, you’re in luck as the Modern Warfare 3 campaign is actually quite short. Our playthrough saw us roll credits in just over five hours on the standard difficulty setting, but this number included plenty of messing around in the new Open Combat Missions and a handful of very unlucky deaths in later segments. 

No matter how you intend to play, however, knowing the names, rewards and order of each of the campaign’s 14 missions could be useful so here's our comprehensive breakdown of everything that you need to know.
