Respawn Entertainment and Infinity Ward's AAA first-person shooters have both made their way onto the marketplace for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and naturally, it's caused a lot of gamers to compare the two shooter games on several fronts, including how they both handle the campaign modes.

There are raging debates about story and characterizations between Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2, with most people giving a leg-up to the former when it comes to story-scope. However, when it comes to how the campaign modes actually play, there are three spoiler-free things that Titanfall's 2 campaign does better than Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare when it comes to playability, replayability, and mechanical diversity.

Titanfall 2

No. 1: Gameplay Diversity

What Titanfall 2 does with its campaign mode is constantly mix things up in each level. There's some standard boots on the ground gameplay and Titan combat, but there's also a lot of crazy stages and challenges thrown at the player in each level. For instance, there's an awesome area that requires scaling through a constantly-changing production facility that creates mock battlegrounds, just like there's a challenging level involving running high atop in the sky across disjointed and moving platforms in order to fix a beacon while soldiers attempt to flank you from all sides. They still manage to keep it themed around running and gunning, but they also focus on challenging players with unique environments, combat challenges and even some time-warping traversal similar to what was featured in Dishonored 2.

Some people might say that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare offers gamers diverse gameplay with its space combat and zero-gravity segments. And it's true that it's definitely more diverse than some previous Call of Duty titles, but a lot of times the actual campaign gameplay is just a mix of corridor shooting, space flying and then more corridor shooting. There are a couple of on-rail stealth segments, but a lot of it is basically repetitive corridor shooting and space combat, which makes up for most of the six to eight-hour campaign. Infinite Warfare's campaign is definitely longer than Titanfall 2, but far less diverse when it comes to level design and how the gameplay mechanics are utilized.
