Can you play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare from a disc without needing a hard drive? What about on a USB stick or external harddrive?

    If you have a USB stick that can store the 45GB install, I'm impressed. Jan 10 '15 at 16:03

If you are using a PC, it will work. If you have a completely functional PC that has everything else (RAM, grahpics card, motherboard) I guess you could in theory. You could store and download the game/Steam on a usb with ALOT of memory. However, this is impossible because if you have no hard drive you have no operating system...

  • by the way, i assume this is an entirely theoretical question because like i said I seriosuly doubt its possible (or at least by no convient means.. Jan 11 '15 at 0:31
  • +1 Steam, at its largest (not counting anything in the SteamApps folder) is around 1GB, so as long as you have a 64GB USB stick.. It's possible. Though to say that the read/write speed is going to be horrible... So prepare for REALLY long loading times.
