This page is for the 2010 video game. For the first game in the franchise, see Medal of Honor (1999).
Medal of Honor is a video game developed by Danger Close (single player), DICE (multiplayer), and published by Electronic Arts for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The game's storyline is set in the year 2002 during the first stages of the ongoing War in Afghanistan, where the player controls various characters of the U.S. Military's special operations units, called "Tier 1 Operators". The characters included are Chief Petty Officer "Rabbit" of AFO Neptune, assigned to DEVGRU, Specialist Dante Adams, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, "Deuce" of AFO Wolfpack, assigned to the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, and Captain Brad "Hawk" Hawkins, an Army AH-64 Apache gunner callsign "Gunfighter 06", assigned to the 1st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Aviation Regiment.
As of February 2023, the game's multiplayer component and its servers have been shut down. All information about the game's multiplayer mechanics was correct before the multiplayer was defunct.
The following weapons appear in the video game Medal of Honor:
During the single-player campaign, the player's character is allowed to carry two primary weapons and a pistol. Pistols are tertiary weapons, which cannot be swapped away, but have unlimited ammunition.
The single player part of the game correctly tracks the +1 round in the chamber and the fire-mode selector switch can be used on most of the weapons (the only exceptions are the Kalashnikov variants).
The multiplayer part of the game uses a class system similar to that used in DICE's Battlefield series of video games. The player is allowed to choose between three classes, and rank each up separately. Riflemen use assault rifles with grenade launchers, machine guns and smoke grenades for cover. The Special Ops class features shotguns, carbines and rocket launchers as special weapons. Snipers can choose between battle rifles and sniper rifles.
Regardless of faction, each weapon can be equipped with three different attachments at the same time. Various sights, muzzle attachments or special ammunition can be chosen to tweak the guns to meet the operator's needs.
In MP, the +1 round in the chambers is not present, and the player's character does not chamber a new round on most of the weapons when both the magazine and chamber are empty, only simply swaps the magazines. The same "feature" can be seen in DICE's previous game; Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
The SIG-Sauer P226R is Rabbit's signature pistol. Its 9mm rounds are fed from Mec-Gar's 18-round flush fit magazines, giving it an 18+1 maximum capacity.

Rabbit reloads his P226R. "P226" can be seen on the grip.
When a pistol runs empty, the characters always pull the slide to release it, instead of using the slide release lever; this procedure, while non-standard, is advocated by a number of respected firearms trainers. This applies to every pistol in the single-player part of the game.
A Glock 17 with a tan frame is Deuce's signature sidearm, possessing a 15+1 magazine capacity. While modeled after the Glock 17, the magazine capacity is that of a Glock 19, a weapon commonly carried by AFO personnel.

The slide of the suppressed Glock locks empty. The Glock logo, "17", "AUSTRIA" and "9x19" can be read on the slide.
In the single player campaign the Beretta M9 is Spc. Dante Adams' signature sidearm, where it has the correct 15+1 magazine capacity. The firing sound of the M9 in-game is the same as the Medal of Honor: Airborne's M1911A1.

The Beretta M9 is the standard Coalition sidearm in the multiplayer. It has the same (incorrect) 12-round magazine capacity as seen in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and the hammer is never cocked, unlike in single-player.

Good view of the iron sights.
M9 being reloaded. Notice how there are no bullets in the new magazine, and the lack of feed lips on the magazine itself.
Izhmekh MP-443 "Grach"
The MP-443 "Grach" is the standard Taliban sidearm. Like the M9 in multiplayer, it has an incorrect 12-round magazine capacity as the real one holds 17 bullets. Appears as the "Tariq", which is in reality, an Iraqi clone of the Beretta M1951. The MP-443 Grach's appearance is rather anachronistic because the weapon started production in 2003.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The H&K MP7A1 is used by Delta Force members Deuce, Dusty, Panther and Vegas during the Wolfpack missions. It's fitted with an EOTech 552 holographic sight, 40-round magazine and suppressor during the level Running With Wolves..., and appears without suppressor in Friends from Afar.

Deuce's MP7A1 on the ground. The A1 version of the MP7 is anachronistic, as it was not introduced until 2003, and the game takes place in 2002. The older MP7 was only available at that time.
The MP7A1 is an unlockable weapon for Spec Ops troopers regardless of their faction. Seen with the stock extended and foregrip down, but oddly uses the pistol sights when no optic is attached. Its attachments are an EOTech or ACOG regardless of the player's faction. Available to those who have pre-ordered the game.

The P90TR (Triple Rail) appears only in the multiplayer part of the game, available as another alternate unlockable weapon to the Spec Ops class, regardless of faction. The P90TR is a devastating weapon with high cycling rate and magazine capacity. This weapon has no Veteran version. Referred to as "P90 PDW".

Assault Rifles & Battle Rifles
Colt M4A1 Carbine
M4A1 with RIS foregrip and M68 Aimpoint red dot scope - 5.56x45mm NATO
The M4A1 Carbine is the main weapon for the Tier 1 Operators and the Army Rangers in the game. The weapons appear to be fitted with EOTech 552 holographic sights, AN/PEQ-2 laser designators, KAC QDSS-NT4 suppressors, RIS foregrips, and SureFire Universal WeaponLights. During the last two missions ACOGs are used instead of the holographic sights. Appears as "M4" but fires in full-auto and semi-auto, like the M4A1. It is worth noting that when the player switches fire modes, the player character visibly switches the fire selector to the correct position.

Though undergoing development at the time, the Universal Camouflage Pattern didn't see use in the field until 2003, the year after the events of the game, and thus the Rangers should be wearing the same DCUs as their ETAC.

In multiplayer, the M4A1 is the standard weapon for the Coalition Special Ops class. It is fitted with a non-removable foregrip. The carry handle can be changed to a holographic sight or ACOG. The "stock barrel" can be fitted with either a laser sight or sound suppressor. It can also fire open-tip ammunition, which have increased damage.
A screenshot from an early version of the game where the M4A1 appeared as "M4". The developers later realized that the M4 designation refers to a 3-round burst carbine, while the M4A1 is the fully automatic variant.

Mk 18 Mod 0
The second of two M4 variants featured in single-player is the Mk 18 Mod 0 carbine with RIS and foregrip. It is only seen used by AFO Neptune in the first level. Appears as "M4 CQBR" in the game. Rabbit uses an Aimpoint CompM2 with cantilever mount and killFLASH cover while the other members of AFO Neptune use EOTech 552s on their Mk 18s.

Scoring headshots or achieving multi-kills increases the available time. The mesh seen through the sight is from the killFLASH.

And the other side of the rifle. As the text on the HUD shows, it is impossible to swap away the pistols in the game.
Colt Sporter Competition
As in some games of the Battlefield series, the "M16A4" is actually modeled after the civilian Colt Sporter Competition, given the two-position selector switch and the lack of a bayonet lug. It is the standard weapon for Coalition Riflemen in multiplayer. It is always fitted with an M203 grenade launcher, and fires in fully-automatic mode, which is incorrect even for an M16A4. The weapon in the time of the game (2002) is inaccurate, as the M16A4 entered service in 2004.

AKM and variants
The AKM appears both in single-player and multiplayer modes, and is incorrectly called "AK-47" in both. The slant muzzle brakes are removed and they lack the strengthening ribs on the receiver cover.
AKM with slant muzzle brake - 7.62x39mm
Hungarian FÉG AKM-63 - 7.62x39mm
East German MPi-KMS-72 with sling and side-folding stock - 7.62x39mm
The AKMs in single player can be composed of parts from other AKs used by former Eastern Bloc countries, including East Germany. The handguard, stock, and even the magazine's material can vary from weapon to weapon. Strangely, the selector does not work for these rifles.
In Rabbit's hands is an AK with a green synthetic hand-guard and East German-style side-folding stock. On the ground is a fixed stock AK with the AKM-63's foregrip.

FN F2000 Tactical
The F2000 Tactical is an alternate unlockable weapon for the Rifleman class. Can be modified with a holographic sight (regardless of faction), ACOG, suppressor, and open-tip ammo. It is always equipped with an FN GL-1 grenade launcher, which comes with three 40mm grenades.

Heckler & Koch G3A3
H&K G3A3 - 7.62x51mm NATO
The Heckler & Koch G3A3 can be seen in hands of Taliban and Chechen fighters in the single player campaign. Since Afghanistan shares a huge territorial borderline with Pakistan, it makes perfect sense some Pakistani Army G3's to have fallen to Taliban hands. It appears with an incorrect 30+1 capacity, despite it being modeled with a 20-round magazine. An actual 30-round box mag for G3-type rifles (yes, these exist) is noticeably longer than the standard capacity 20-rounders.
A discarded G3A3 on the ground. Interestingly, the receiver markings say "HK 91", which is the semi-automatic version of the G3. On the other side it says "Kal. .308", a marking usually used on civilian models imported to America. These facts imply that this version was modeled off a civilian G3.

The G3A3 is an unlockable weapon in multiplayer for the Sniper class. It is unlocked at Level 9. Can be modified with a holographic sight, sniper scope, suppressor or open-tip ammunition. In MP, the capacity is correctly 20 rounds, but the rifle fires only in semi-automatic mode.

Reloading animation of the G3A3 rifle. The missing magazine release paddle can be seen on the image. Technically, that would make the rifle a HK91A2, however those were not available with S-E-F trigger groups. It is certain that a HK91A2 was used for modeling, as the receiver marking says "HK 91", as on the single-player G3A3. It is safe to say that this rifle is a borderline hybrid. Finally, but not lastly, the selector is set to safe.

Mk 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle
The Mk 14 Mod 0 EBR fitted with ACOG is used by Rabbit of AFO Neptune in the game. Capable of semi-auto and full-auto fire modes, with full auto being extremely effective in certain points. Holds 20+1 rounds, and incorrectly appears as "M14 EBR" in the game.

FN M249 SAW
The FN M249 SAW appears in single-player and multiplayer game modes and is fitted with the heat-shield of an Mk 46 Mod 0 in both.
M249 with Rapid Fielding Initiative telescoping stock, short barrel, heat shield, RIS handguard, Picatinny rail, ACOG scope, and 100-round cloth ammo bag - 5.56x45mm
The FN M249 SAW is used during the level Belly of the Beast by Specialist Dante Adams. In single-player, it is always used with a 200-round box magazine. Note that it is seen with an EOTech holographic sight in trailers and promotional screenshots, but appears in the game with the M145 MG optic.
FN M249 as seen in the first gameplay trailer. Note the magazine well visible beneath the ammo belt for feeding from M16-type box magazines, a key difference distinguishing it from the similar Mark 46.

In MP it has 100-round capacity and appears simply as "M249". It is the alternate unlockable weapon for the Coalition Rifleman class, and later for the OpFor. Can be fitted with a holographic sight, ACOG, open-tip ammo, or a custom muzzle brake.

The RPK is an alternate unlockable machine gun for Taliban riflemen, but this weapon is only acquired through digital pre-orders of the PC version. Holds 100 rounds, but is modeled with a 75-round drum mag. This weapon's second version is called "RPK (C)" (C for Custom) instead of "Veteran".

M60E4 MK43 Mod 1 with picatinny rails, RIS foregrip, and ammo belt - 7.62x51mm
The M60E4 MK43 Mod 1 is the weapon of choice for Tier One Operator Voodoo. In Compromised, he dislocates his shoulder after a fall, and trades the M60E4 for Rabbit's M4A1 to continue fighting. That is the only time that the M60E4 is usable in the single-player campaign.

The M21 SWS is the standard weapon for Coalition Snipers. The modeled 20-round magazine is restricted to 10 rounds to balance it out with the NDM-86.

The Remington M24 SWS is available as an unlockable bolt-action sniper rifle for Coalition snipers. It can be modified with a High-Power Scope, Rangefinder, or open-tip ammunition. The in-game version has a 5-round detachable box magazine, and a stock shaped similarly to an M24A2.

The Barrett M107 is used by Deuce in both Wolfpack missions. The Barrett is fitted with an AN/PAS-13B Weapon Thermal Sight instead of a regular scope. The M107 has unlimited ammunition, but must be reloaded after every 10 shots. Although the rifle's designation is never mentioned or shown, at one point the "Eliminate Enemies with M82" objective appears, incorrectly identifying the weapon.

Knight's Armament Company SR-25 Enhanced Match Rifle
The KAC SR-25 Enhanced Match Rifle erroneously appears as "M110" in the game. Both are anachronistic because the game takes place in 2002, while the M110 SASS was produced from 2008 onward and the SR-25 EMR even later. The SR-25 with tan paint scheme is used by both Dusty and Deuce in both Wolfpack missions.

The Remington 870 appears in two different forms in the game.
Remington 870 New Police tactical Model with Magpul CTR telescoping stock - 12 gauge
The 870 featured in the Single-player portion is a customized MCS variant with a shorter barrel and shorter 5-round magazine tube (giving it 5+1 capacity), as well as an EOTech sight, a railed foregrp with rail covers and a breech-guard, and a Crane M4-type stock. Rabbit seems to be adept at using this to the point he can cycle through the ammo at a decent speed despite the weapon being pump-action. When reloading from empty, Rabbit will keep the action open, feed the first round through the chamber, close the action and then feed the remaining rounds through the loading gate.

Rabbit reloads the 870 MCS. This shotgun is available in the first level only. Later it is replaced with the Benelli M4.
When the 870 runs empty, Rabbit puts the first shell into the chamber through the ejection port.

The Multiplayer portion of the game features a full-size 870 variant, with a conventional shotgun stock, a shell holder on the left side and an 8-round capacity. Also available are various optics, and slug ammunition. Unlike its Battlefield: Bad Company counterpart (MP component of Medal of Honor 2010 uses the same engine as said series), the 870 now feature usable iron-sights/optics, as well as a faster pump animation when firing (your character keeps the weapon level when operating the action, rather than letting the weapon recoil back and slowing things down).

Tula Arms TOZ-194
The TOZ-194 is an alternate unlockable weapon for the Taliban Special Ops class. Like the 870MCS, and unlike its Bad Company counterpart, the TOZ-194 now features usable iron-sights/optics, as well as a faster pump animation when firing (your character keeps the weapon level when operating the action, rather than letting the weapon recoil back and slowing things down).

Benelli M1 Super 90
A Benelli M1 Super 90 with a pistol grip stock and top rail is available only in the single-player. When reloading from empty, Adams will load the first shell directly into the chamber and then release the bolt handle. The remaining rounds are then quickly loaded via the loading port. Holds 6+1 shells, the capacity indicates it is using 3" Magnum rounds, normal 2 3/4" shells would give it a 7+1 capacity. Appears as "M1014", the Military designation for the Benelli M4. Interestingly, the same gaffe occurs in Battlefield 4.

Spc. Adams holds an Benelli M1 equipped with a EOTech sight during the last mission of the game. This is the secondary weapon during the last mission; a rather odd choice for a map with lots of open areas and only a few close-quarters spots.
The DShKM is used by the Taliban as an emplaced weapon or mounted on Technicals.

The ZU-23-2 is also seen during the MP. In the Combat Mission "Helmand Valley", two ZU-23-2s are the last objective that must be destroyed by the Coalition troops before the airstike can level the target building. In "Shahikot Mountains", the last objective is a ZU-23-2 (referred to as AA Gun) that must be destroyed before the Chinook can escape the mountains.

M230 Chain Gun
During the mission "Gunfighters" the AH-64D Apache helicopters are armed with M230 Chain Guns. The M230 Chain Gun comes with an impressive load of 9,000 rounds, while the real M230 can carry 1,200 rounds at max. Other armaments include 308 Hydra 70 rockets and several AGM-114 Hellfire rockets. The latter can only be used against specific targets.

The M136 AT4 is the default special weapon for the Coalition Special Ops class. Like in most video games, it is shown reloadable. Obviously, the reloading is done completely off-screen, possibly because the developers couldn't find any good video where this single-shot missile launcher is being reloaded.

Iron sights of the M136 AT4.
In the single player campaign the RPG-7 usually appears with a PGO-7 scope.

The CM203, distinguishable by its squared off trigger guard and M16-style safety (both visible in the following screen capture), is mounted on Dante Adams' M4A1 in during final level of the SP campaign. Can also be seen on M4A1s in the hands of NPC Rangers at the start of both Belly of the Beast and the final SP level. The game incorrectly refers to it as "M203".
As Spc. Adams switches his M4A1 to semi-auto, we get a good view of the distinguishing features of the CM203 grenade launcher.
Reloading the CM203 during the last level of the game. Up to 25 40mm grenades can be carried for it. Also, an infinite cache of grenades can be found in the middle of a terrorist camp, yet they do not use any assault rifles with 40mm UBGLs.
Spc. Adams flips up the ladder sight of the CM203.
In MP, the authentic M203 grenade launcher appears on the M16A4 rifle. The player is limited to carrying 2 grenades.

Reloading the GP-25 mounted on an AKM. Note that as in several other games this uses a generic M203 round model rather than the correct VOG grenade. Although, there is no animation where the player's character flicks the launcher to eject the spent casing.
The FN GL-1 grenade launcher can be found on the F2000 Tactical assault rifle in the multiplayer part of the game. Like the other UBGL's, it is a non-removable attachment.
GL1 grenade launcher - 40mm
The GL-1 mounted on an F2000 Tactical is nicely visible on the weapon customization menu.

While the player can receive ammo for Tier One-issued weapons from his mates in SP, frag grenades can only be replenished from boxes like this. Also, the game refers to it as "M67 frag grenade", and not simply as "frag grenade" seen in the majority of video games.
The M67 frag grenade is used by the Special Ops and Sniper classes.
An M67 on the ground. The little orange triangle next to it is the grenade danger indicator. Also note how the pin and lever are still attached to the body of the grenade.

In the single-player campaign, the M18 smoke grenade is an NPC-only equipment. Voodoo of AFO Neptune uses a white smoke grenade to safely cross a yard in Breaking Bagram. Another smoke grenade is used by Sgt. Patterson to mark a DShK MMG in Rangers Lead The Way.
Tech. Sgt. Ybarra gives an M18 red smoke grenade to Sgt. Jim Patterson before storming the DShK emplacement in Rangers Lead The Way
The M18 smoke grenade is the standard smoke grenade that can be used in the multiplayer part of game. Coalition and Taliban Riflemen carry these in lieu of frag grenades. Becoming a Level 15 Rifleman grants the ability to carry an additional M18 smoke grenade.
