Modern Warfare II introduces several design improvements and changes to the series gameplay, such as advanced AI systems in the campaign and co-op modes, water physics, swimming mechanics, and a overhauled vehicle system.

New vehicle gameplay features include leaning out of vehicle windows, mantling onto a vehicle roof, and hijacking. The levelling and Gunsmith system has been revamped, allowing players to fine-tune specific attachments to suit their playstyles. It also offers weapon platforms that branch progression to reduce repetitiveness, as well as featuring a firing range for practice.

Modern Warfare II multiplayer features several new game modes: Knockout, in which two teams attempt to capture a package with limited lives; and Prisoner Rescue, in which an attacking team attempts to extract a hostage while a defending team prevents them by fortifying defenses around the hostage. Third person game modes were confirmed in September. The cooperative Special Ops mode is also confirmed to return, featuring two-player missions, with an additional 3-player activity called Raids set to release post-launch.


In July 2022, Task Force 141 has been working under the command of General Shepherd conducting surgical strikes against Russian-backed Iranian forces. When a missile strike assassinates Iranian general Ghorbrani during an arms deal in Al Mazrah, his second-in-command, Quds Force Major Hassan Zyani, assumes the mantle of leadership and becomes involved in funding terrorist activity over several months. His activities draw the attention of Shepherd and CIA Station Chief Kate Laswell, ordering the deployment of MARSOC Marines led by Lieutenant Simon "Ghost" Riley and Sergeant John "Soap" MacTavish to apprehend Hassan in Al Mazrah. Hassan has already fled the area, with Ghost and Soap discovering that he was in possession of an American-made ballistic missile.

To continue their pursuit of Hassan, Laswell, Captain John Price, and Sergeant Kyle "Gaz" Garrick pursue one of Hassan's couriers in Amsterdam, learning that Hassan has allied with the Las Almas cartel and is being sheltered in Mexico. After a failed attempt to apprehend Hassan in US-Mexican border, Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas and his second-in-command Sergeant Major Rodolfo "Rudy" Parra participate in a joint operation with Ghost, Soap, and Shadow Company to capture Hassan. Although successful, they are forced to release him from captivity to avoid political fallout while placing a tracking device on his cell phone.

Hassan's traced phone call leads Price, Laswell, and Gaz to Spain to raid a Las Almas-owned fishing hatchery, where they discover that Las Almas possessed Russian-made GPS devices to use for the stolen missiles. Laswell is captured by Al-Qatala forces, prompting Price and Gaz to save her in Urzikstan, with the aid of their old allies "Nikolai" and Farah Karim. Meanwhile, Vargas and Soap infiltrate a Las Almas meeting to identify their leader, El Sin Nombre, revealed to be Vargas's former teammate Valeria Garza. Valeria makes a deal with Shadow Company by revealing the location of the missiles. A raid led by Ghost, Shadow Company Commander Phillip Graves, Soap, and Vargas has the joint task force assault an abandoned oil derrick and cargo tanker to prevent a missile launch. Despite the successful mission, Graves and Shadow Company betray Vargas and Task Force 141 by taking over the former's base of operations and detaining his men under Shepherd's order. Graves captures and imprisons Vargas while Ghost and Soap flee to safety. With help from Parra, Laswell, Price, and Gaz, Ghost and Soap launch a prison break to free Vargas and his soldiers.

During extraction, Laswell reveals that in August, Shepherd and Graves were responsible for a botched and illegal transportation mission, that was supposed to transport ballistic missiles to American allies in the Middle East and the URA against the Russians but were ambushed by Russian PMCs that led to the three ballistic missiles being stolen in the first place and covered it up. Price confronts Shepherd over the revelations, promising to pursue him when Hassan and Graves are eliminated. Task Force 141 and their Mexican Special Forces allies succeed in killing Graves and learn from Valeria that Hassan is in Chicago, intending to fire the remaining missile onto Washington, D.C.. The team successfully thwarts the plot and kills Hassan.

In the aftermath of the mission, Shepherd has gone into hiding, while Laswell informs Task Force 141 of the leader of Russian Ultranationalists responsible for Shepherd's botched operation, whom Price identifies as Vladimir Makarov. Meanwhile, a Russian terrorist cell prepares to hijack a plane after receiving a text from Makarov, telling them not to speak Russian during their mission.
