Worst Call of Duty Games

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty: Ghosts

The maps are too large, and by having these large maps it bring out snipers and campers that really change this from a Call of Duty game to something in between Call of Duty and battlefield. The maps are not as big as Battlefield maps but they are all larger than past Call of Duty games. For the maps that are normal size there are multi able levels ground floor underground and up to three levels in buildings can you say campers galore. Each maps has sections that are blind corners for campers and don't for get the leaning kills needed to get your gold camo. Leaning kills just shows the makers of this game think everyone love to camp no loves it happens but to promote it with needing leaning kills is pathetic. You don't see a lot of people getting 60 kills in a game although I know it happens I don't see it much if ever because the maps are so large you could run around the dam thing twice before getting a shot off at someone. Lastly the guns are not the same marksmen shot to slow subs ...more

Terrible hate the maps don't like like the guns or game modes in it and I hope it burns

One word that I would use to describe this game would most likely be horrendous.

What's wrong with this game this was my first call of duty game I got on my ps3 in 2013 when I was 14

2 Call of Duty: Black Ops - Declassified

What is this? - SkyRimLegend21

Never even heard of it

This is the only complete failure of th franchise.

Ever wanted to play A handheld FPS with graphics so bad they make the graphics in Star Fox on the SNES look good with bad controls and a dead online on a failed handheld? Here ya go. - B1ueNew

3 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

I will be speaking about the Multiplayer aspect of this game, as it's the only aspect I've played and the reason most people even buy Call of Duty in the first place (including me). Also, just for reference, I mostly play Hardcore Domination.

Exo suits were the worst idea Call of Duty could have ever come up with. Honestly, does it even matter how much skill you have with a gun when the enemy can just super jump and dodge for days? You can't hit people.

The Exo Abilities (Cloak etc) are all useless. The Exo Launchers are useless. What's the point in having them when almost nobody uses them? We need to go back to when we had lethals and tacticals and they were actually useful.

Most of the guns are crap as well. Snipers are not even a viable options in this game. You see so many people running the same exact guns, and the exact same variations of said guns.

Speaking of gun variations, most are such crap I don't understand why we even have them. Just leave the ...more

I really think ghosts is underrated, Ghosts had a chance, advanced warfare did not - LuckyLeftist

Complete ass game

One of the absolute WORST bot mechanics in the Call of Duty franchise. First of all, The bots (even the recruit level) use an unfair amount of auto aim. They kill you instantly, and they sneak up behind you too. That is a cool mechanic, but the 6 year old training bots shouldn't have MVP level coordination. Finally they pick up guns. I don't know why, but that PISSES ME OFF! I like playing the game types where it is just you Versus veteran bots with combat knifes and the entire game got ruined for me when those veterans picked up my own weapons and started shooting at me with unrealistic amounts of skill. Quick summary of everything I just said, this game sucks.

4 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Worse than Ghosts. - RaidenRain

You mean call of duty modern warfare remastered had another game on the disk?

This shouldn't even be a Call of Duty game. - BritishGoat

Don't bother playing;it is the worst Call of Duty game ever.

5 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

This is the best! Why is it here?! By the way survival came first

What? This was actually a good game. - B1ueNew

Worst game I have ever played.

Worst game I've ever played. Entirely too inconsistent, poor mechanics, and an all around failure from the producers of this game and honestly the entire franchise. They should truly be embarrassed for creating this terrible replication of what they perceive to be warfare. AND WHEN IS HIT DETECTION GOING TO BE THEIR NUMBER 1 PRIORITY!?! I have played nearly ever Call of Duty game out there and I regret what little time I put towards any of them. All of them are damn near the same, boring, repetitive and unimaginably predictable. With in time I would LOVE to sue the publishers, Activision, and the primary developers for a Defective Product Claim along with intensely false advertising and a slew of many other claims that could easily be made about this horrible game that has completely destroyed the image and incredible possibilities of FPS games. Personally even if you did enjoy these games I believe these companies need to reimburse all its ...more

Not exactly the best game out there. The survival mode is a dumbed down version of zombies and the spec ops gets boring after a while. The campaign is also just a big bore and the plot isn't anywhere near as good as the other games. And don't even get me started on the multiplayer...

6 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

What?! This is one of the best Call of Duty games ever made! - BritishGoat

This is definitely the worst, from before it came out to after. First of all, Black Ops 2 should've took place in the 70s. Black Ops I heavily implied an immediate sequel, as it felt incomplete and pretty messy at the end. However if no immediate sequel was implied that just means the original Black Ops was a pretty weak game too. And in many respects it is.

So we don't get a 70s game. But the next issue is that it was so hyped up to being this futuristic game where "Rare Earth Elements" needed to make technology go scarce, and the world freaks out and the US goes into a Cold War with China. And all happens in 2025! (Which is actually in only 11 years from now, making it as futuristic as Modern Warfare).

Anyway despite this hype of the plot, all of this is just glanced over in the actual plot. The plot is basically about some Nicaraguan guy going on a killing spree funded through decades of drug trafficking and recruiting people through Facebook. Which is kind of ironic ...more

I've also said that the campaign would have been much better if it was a direct sequel to black ops 1. The flashback missions in the mid 80s were my favorite part of the game.

This is the call of duty that killed the franchise because after this every call of duty sucked because everyone of them took place in the future and it all started with this game!

This game was one of the best Call of Duty games. - B1ueNew

7 Call of Duty: Black Ops III

This is one of the best close to world war 2 and black ops 2

This is the worst Call Of Duty game EVER made.. completely ass

Sorry, but you cannot be halo - HaloFanboy

This game couldve been good if it werent for the fact the campaign glitches on me! I complete a mission and afterwards, they make me do it again. Same problem happened in World at War - codgtamk34

8 Call of Duty 3

This is one of the best

This was a amazing game and should not be on this list

In the crash screen, it says Call of Duty 2 has crashed, proving that all Call of Duty games are a copy and paste game - Harri666

Call of Duty 3 was far too vehicle based. This, along with the inexperience of developing from treyarch at the time, made for arguably one of the worst titles yet.

9 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

I've played all the CoDs since CoD4. I quit this one in the first month and since then I played once or twice only to hate it even more. Black ops 4 is by far the worst call of duty of all time IN EVERY ASPECT. Simply put the game is boring and broken.

The supply drop system is the worst its ever been
The gameplay is the most boring it's ever been
The hit reg, mechanics etc are also the worst they've ever been

+ you have 150 health, manual healing, specialists... There is just nothing good going on for this game, or at least the multiplayer portion of it.

Definitely should be number 1 on this list, we expected a lot from this game and gave us literally nothing, zero.

They've run out of ideas. This should be in the top 5.

This should be number 1! At least Ghosts has what this game doesn't. They ditched single-player to compete with Fortnite, which also sucks. And because of this game, I am never buying another Call of Duty game again - codgtamk34

The Contenders

11 Call of Duty: World at War

This game is my childhood favorite and it still is my #1 call of duty game.

This one was amazing! One of my favorites and a lot of my friends favorite ever.

First Nazi zombies ever made but you have to finish the game first which sucks but still good

This is the first game that I found not copy-paste from previous games

12 Call of Duty 2: Big Red One

Is this a counterpart to Call of Duty 2? - B1ueNew

This one is not the best but its still cool it rocks!

No one remembers it. - B1ueNew

The people who hate it are unoriginal 10 year olds who like futuristic exo suits, or they just don't like the graphics.

13 Call of Duty: Finest Hour

It looks decent. - B1ueNew

Crappy controls, damage meter, health packs are rare/in weird places, certain missions are terribly unfun (looking at you British desert escort mission), last and largest issue is AUTO SAVE IS SO SCARCE!

Very good game! The story was intriguing and had a lot of fun with it. First Call of Duty I ever had.

Awesome, first Call of Duty I had

14 Call of Duty

How is it bad? Sure some parts were frustrating because you had to die to learn where the enemy is, and there's that difficult panzerfaust level. But the campaign was done just right. You get to play as Americans, British and Russians and yet the game never feels rushed.

Call of Duty is probably only on this list because it's old and many things have changed since then.

It is not as good as the rest, mainly because of that non regenerate health.

This game is the worst because it started this annoying franchise.

Not a bad game super fun

One of the Worst, if not the worst!

Objectively worse than World at War in all departments except for the expected visual upgrade for a several year gap.

17 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

WHAT? This is one of few good Call of Duty games why is it on here?

Boosters, noob tubers, and deathstreaks completely ruined this game.

This game is god awful compared to other games. Has a great campaign and multiplayer is fun on split screen, but playing online is awful, all maps are uneven, noob tubers, one man army, commando, marty dom, and all other death streaks ruin the game, also no one plays the objective its all cancer in one game - dangits12

This is my favorite call of duty game ever why is it even on this list

It is a phone game, good to be honest. You should place Heroes instead


21 Call of Duty: Black Ops (DS)

Its probably alright. - B1ueNew

22 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Defiance

Ds call of duty games? , how would that work exactly? The DS online isn't even that good, and the graphics would look like a potato - B1ueNew

Not now, not ever

This game suck sucks on there moms milk

This is the worst DS port, other than maybe Call of Duty 4/WaW. If you get past the graphics and maybe the weird yet nice controls, the game itself is just a copy of the earlier Call of Duty Black-ops DS port, or at least with the source code. The other last Call of Duty DS ports had a gun range and Call of Duty Black-ops had a nice zombie feature. This one had none of that, so it got boring fast.

Guessing this is one of those tank games on the play store - B1ueNew

24 Call of Duty: Black Ops – Zombies

How is this the best Call of Duty game? It isn't even a game, it is a game mode within a game. This isn't all that good anyways...

Lol this is apparently the best call of duty game ever.

Call of Duty zombies is Ok in the iOS but it just too EASY I played until I reached 130 it's that EASY if u don't believe meh just play it

25 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

It's amazing but useless to buy on the Xbox One since you can use the original X360 disc - B1ueNew

Activision Is Taking Your Cash - VideoGamefan5

No they're not, they're remastering legendary games in the franchise and try to make them better. For all I know, we're not going to see a Ghosts remaster anytime soon. - Mumbizz01

So awesome

26 Call of Duty: Roads to Victory

What the HELL, how is a call of duty PSP handheld below legandary games like Modern Warfare? - B1ueNew

This Isn't Even A Call of Duty Game, It's A ARPG - VideoGamefan5

27 Call of Duty: Zombies

It's like the bo1 iOS game it's easy I also reached level 64 and it was annoying hearing the background noises. But it's worse than original zombies in consoles. Graphics are bad,Too easy,Background noises,and the revive doesn't do nothing. It's one of the worst zombies I've ever played.Shi no Numa and Der Riese's dogs are annoying.
This is my opinion thank you!

28 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare


This game was amazing how is it here? It brought the greats in Price and Soap

Because this is top ten worst cods meaning this is nowhere near the worst games

Great multiplayer maps but short campaign but campaign is fun

Any person with half a brain can figure out that because this game is at the bottom of the worst call of duty games list, it's actually at the top of good call of duty games because almost every call of duty game is already listed first on this worst call of duty games list!
