Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

Hands On With Medal of Honor: Warfighter Multiplayer

Here is the intel I received from sitting down for a round of Sector Control (Medal of Honor's version of conquest or demolition):

  • Teams are broken into fire teams composed of two special operators. Once you choose a buddy to fight alongside, his position will always be visible on the battlefield. 
  • You and your fellow fire team member can respawn behind each other if you're out of the line of fire, or you can respawn at the fall back point. If your buddy is downed and you shoot his killer, he can automatically respawn instead of waiting for the countdown.
  • Before the match starts, you can choose between several special operators from the various international Tier 1 groups. 
  • Thus far, Warfighter has six types of soldier classes: Demolitions, Assaulter, Sniper, Point Man, Heavy Gunner, and Spec Ops 
  • Each operator fits under one of these classes and each has unique weapons and special abilities. For instance, the Polish GROM are equipped with an assault rifle that has a grenade launcher undersling, and the Canadian JTF2 rock an M249 with suppression capabilities. The varied special abilities include calling in mortar rounds, using armor piercing rounds that do 20-percent more damage, a UAV for spotting soldiers, and a mobile spawn point.
  • EA says there are 72 operators to unlock. For the purpose of the demo, we could choose between six.  
  • The game has a wealth of unlockables and customization options, including optics, stocks, underbarrels, and camo.
  • As the second shooter to use the Frostbite 2 engine, Warfighter looks just as good (if not better) than Battlefield 3.
  • The PC controls were very smooth and responsive, as you would expect from a modern multiplayer game using such a high-end engine.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 23. To learn more about the single-player campaign, read our earlier preview.

  • Sounds awesome!
  • So far this looks like a cod/battlefield hybrid. That is good
  • Actually, this sounds pretty good. I hope the PC version will have proper VOIP. It sounds like a necessity for this kind of close teamwork gamemode.
  • This sounds pretty cool...

  • I'm loving the sound of this so far.

  • This looks great so far. Another game I will be purchasing this fall.

  • This might actually be the reason I preorder this game. The concept to multiplayer is new and cool.

  • Looking really good. I hope they upped the destructability the engine is known for.
  • im getting really excited for this, hopefully it will make me forget the flop of the last Medal of Honor
  • I was pretty lukewarm about this game until I saw the multiplayer trailer. It does look like a mix of COD and BF3. I am really excited about this game now.

  • PC or Xbox? Tough call for me. Likely an xbox buy because of my friends list.

  • Looks good.

  • I liked the first one, but as incredible as the multiplayer is sounding(i'm really liking the sound of being able to respond right away if your buddy downs your killer), but what I really want to know about is the campaign and how it'll differ from the first game.

  • soooo it's a quarters battlefield?.... can't wait

  • guys i was at e3 and this game blew my mind! graohics are a full step above battlefiekd and the shooting seems realistic and smoother than bf or mw3

  • I really like the concept of each regions' operators have different abilities/access to tech. This will distinguish this game, certainly. Looking forward to this.

    Here's to hoping MoH can maintain against the biggies.

  • i pre-ordered it on Amazon today and my friends think im too stupid cuz its June

  • Metal of honor WARFIGHTER looks frign awsome. I have it preordered comeon OCT 23rd.

  • Still dont know, i played the last Medal of Honor and it left a bad taste in my mouth so will I be getting this... Probably not but hey we can all say it looks good
