Can You Play Call of Duty: MW3 Offline?

Call of Duty: MW3 offers players a slew of multiplayer maps and modes, but can fans experience them offline?

The Call of Duty series is one of the few multiplayer shooters that continues to offer offline content in the form of a campaign and bot modes. However, while it has remained a staple for quite some time, with the rise of games requiring constant internet connections to be playable, it is understandable that fans would be worried about MW3 taking that route. Below, we explain whether you can play offline in Call of Duty: MW3 and whether you can add offline bots.

Can You Play MW3 Offline?

Yes, you can play both the campaign mode and multiplayer mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 offline. The campaign mode can be played in its entirety in offline mode, and a Private Multiplayer mode allows you to access all of the maps and modes present in Multiplayer. However, you cannot play Zombies, Ground War, or Invasion in offline mode.

It is worth noting that MW2 had extremely limited offline content. The multiplayer mode, for example, only had 3 of the 16 maps available at launch and only the Team Deathmatch game mode. Similarly, Call of Duty: Cold War had 2 maps and 3 game modes available offline at launch.

Of course, most players don’t purchase COD games for the offline content anymore. However, it’s understandable that fans who don’t enjoy playing with others want to play alone. Fortunately, MW3 allows players to create Private Matches and play against bots without the need for an internet connection.

Does MW3 Have Offline Bots?

Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 does have bots playable in both offline and online modes. You can add them in the Private Matches mode across all game modes and maps, both in offline and online modes. Bots were present in last year’s MW2 in both the offline and online Private Matches mode.

Bots have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise since Black Ops, allowing players to experience the multiplayer content alone. While they’re never as competent as real players, they make the game more accessible for those who would rather play solo.
