Medal of Honor: Warfigher to Feature Peek/Lean in Multiplayer, More on Classes, Loadouts, Support Actions and PC System Specs

Share this:

Slowly, we learn more and more about the competitive multiplayer portion of Danger Close’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter as we inch closer towards its October 23rd release date.

Fresh from Twitter, Creative Director on Medal of Honor Kristoffer Bergqvist reveals that the peek and lean mechanic featured in older Medal of Honor games will be appearing in the multiplayer of Warfighter. “Yes. Warfighter MP will absolutely have Peek/Lean,” he stated to one curious fan. This is on top of both the slide and prone mechanics we spotted in the latest multiplayer gameplay trailer.

Recently, X360A got their hands on some Warfighter multiplayer action and gave us a better look at the class system, including loadouts, abilities and support bonuses or Score Chain Rewards.

Here, they list the six classes they got to work with during the demo as well as their weapon of choice, ability and support bonus. Of course, this is an incomplete list compared to what will be available in the full retail release, but it can still give us a taste of what’s to come:

Australian SRS Pointman

  • Primary: Steyr AUG assault rifle
  • Ability: Heavy Hitter magazine that increased damage by 20% when equipped
  • Support: Call in an air burst mortar strike

US Navy Seal Sniper

  • Primary: McMillan high-powered sniper rifle
  • Ability: ?
  • Support: Launch a Switchblade UAV

Canadian JTF2 Heavy Gunner

  • Primary: M249 LMG
  • Ability: Supportive prone stance offering powerful covering fire with increased accuracy
  • Call in a black ops transport chopper, giving the team instant respawns in any tactical area

USOG Spec Ops

  • Primary: MP7 sub-machine gun
  • Ability: Heat vision
  • Support: Access an A10 strafe air support

SFODD Demolitions

  • Primary: Equipped with a shotgun
  • Ability: Equip extra armour, AKA tank mode, at the cost of mobility
  • Support: Milkor M32 Grenade Launcher

Polish Grom Assaulter

  • Primary: HK416 assault rifle
  • Ability: M320 grenade launcher.
  • Support: Can call in AH6 Little Bird air support

Generally, it seems that classes are made up of a primary starting weapon, a special ability and either an offensive or defensive support action. Abilities will have a cooldown timer, meaning they can be used at any time on the battlefield, but there will be long pauses between use. Support actions, however, must be earned through points by either killing opponents, completing objectives or aiding teammates.

As mentioned earlier, players can take advantage of the buddy system by spawning on your pal upon death after a short timer, or immediately if you happen to be avenged. It takes the same idea as Battlefield 3’s squad system, but adds a small twist by keeping the teams smaller and allowing players to keep better track of each other on the battlefield.
