Medal of Honor PC Open Beta Gameplay

Some videos from the open Beta released for the PC on Monday. The two new levels shown are Shahikot Mountains, a map covered in snow, and Kunar Base, a small, maze-like map that I think was playable at EuroGamer in London last weekend.

Not too long to wait now for the game which comes out in Europe on the 15th of this month, and a little earlier on the 12th for North America. However, after having some really really fun matches on Bad Company 2 last night I’m feeling a little bit disappointed that the game is not as close to BC2 in terms of gameplay as I’d hoped. Still, day 1 purchase from me for sure.

    I noticed, you don’t get alot of points for kills in this game. Also I can’t remember what the knife melee’s were like…

    It’s more close to CoD now, BC has it’s own unique gameplay charme, you like it or not.

    The knive melees in BC2 are way better you can see the knive being stabbed in the enemy.

    in MoH its like you slap someone in the face.

    @Fabe. Yeah, the points are lower than BC2, but I’m sure it won’t take as much overall points to reach the top level as it does in BC2. In Modern Warfare 1, you got 10 points for a kill, but in MW2 it went up to 100 per kill.

    @yvdsvestas. Yeah, I was hoping it had the same gameplay as BC2, but by the looks of it, it’s closer to CoD. BC2’s knife is awesome… when it works! 8 out of 10 times now for me it takes atleast two swipes until the knife registers a hit on an enemy, it’s so bad I’m almost afraid to knife anyone now incase they turn around and kill me after the first failed attempt! Last night I got a kill on the first stab of the knife, I nearly let out a yelp of joy lol!

    One thing I did hear was that in the objective based games, you are pretty much forced to work as a team. Because death comes quickly in the new game, you have to stick together and push forward instead of lone wolfing it.

      You need to get close, the knive will be stabbed directly into the person then.
      When you’re not that close you get a sweep.

  4. goldengate88 says:

    Yeah, but this happens when the proper knife animation happens too. I can see the knife going into the guy, and it makes the noise, but they stay alive, it’s gotten pretty bad for me lately.

    Bit of bad news regarding MoH, looks like snipers are 1 hit kill anywhere on the body :(. Come on DICE, didn’t you realise 1 hit kill snipers where an awful idea? Is’nt that why you nerfed them in Hardcore mode in BC2?

    • yvdsvestas says:

      maybe lag or slow internet connection, i’m recently getting kicked frequently…….. very frustrating.

      1 hit kill on the body?????? not a smart idea i think

  5. goldengate88 says:

    If only my knife worked as good as in that video you posted, it would be great 🙂

    From the videos I’ve been watching yup, 1 hit kill to the body too.

    • Fabian says:

      I don’t play hardcode so I wouln’d know what the Recon’s are like but shouldn’t headshots be a one hit kill not a body shot. I mean unless it’s a Shotgun.

      • goldengate88 says:

        Hardcore mode used to be (even more) full of snipers because the rifles were one shot kills to anywhere on the body until everybody complained and DICE nerfed the bolt action sniper rifles so that they done something like 95% damage meaning it would take atleast two shots too the body to down someone. It has always been 1 hit kills to the head though.

        At a point blank range the sniper rifles are a 1HK in both normal and hardcore mode in Bad Company 2, but you have to be basically humping the guy to be close enough for this to happen. From the videos I’ve been watching online of MoH the bolt actions are once again 1 hit kills anywhere on the body from any range.

  6. thiswarisours18 says:

    aren’t body shots on the campaign akways 1 shot kills for snipers? i remember them being like that on BC2 on the level where you had to shoot when the lightning struck or whatever? you sure it was the multiplayer instaead of a glimpse at campaign?

    remember it was a one shot kill on bc2 on campaign but than online it was like 2 body shots for a kill. they might surprise us. every video ive watched so far has said it was campaign when they hit a 1 shot kill body shot. so i guess well have to wait and see….suspense is killing me cant imagine what its like for you guys you get it like 3 days later i believe.

    • yvdsvestas says:

      Only 3 days dude, no sweat.

      Question to you:
      Whats the online pass (add-on content) of Medal of Honor in the US PSN store????

  7. goldengate88 says:

    Yeah, body shots in campaign were always 1HK, but I’m talking about online, and it used to be the same in Hardcore mode online in BC2, but then they nerfed it after everyone complained that the matches where full of bush humping recon snipers. Check this video out of the Medal of Honor online multiplayer open beta for the PC:

    Around the 1.00 mark the guy starts getting 1 hit kills with the bolt action. He only gets like 3 or 4 headshots the whole time, he even hit somebody on the leg and gets the kills. Along with no bullet drop and insta bullets it’s a Kill/Death padders wet dream! I’m now preparing for the worst, as all the HaRdCoRe 5uP3R L33T XxSniperzxX flock to this game :(.

    BRINK, where are you?!!

  8. thiswarisours18 says:

    we get, early access to the TOZ, 870 shotguns and m60 and special suit access to bf3 beta and tier 1 status. nothing big idk if there’s more….you only get that with the limited edition and your guaranteed limited edition if u pre-ordered which i did. and about the body shots i read somewhere that the game will have hollow points and possibly ballistic dick bullets so that might be the reason for 1HK and we get more modifications….supposedly including barrel and we get three attachments supposedly….and laser sight…now the only thing i gotta say is on BC2 with the m95 that’s a .50 cal sniper and a 50 cal will rip you to pieces so i could understand a 1 shot kill with that because that shit is brutal. and if theres a problem and people complain they will fix it otherwise they lose players and devoted fans so yeah just gotta hope. gonna play some BC2 later bros.

  9. thiswarisours18 says:

    balistic dick lol….sorry sleepy

  10. thiswarisours18 says:

    just woke up and i cant see sorry guys…..i meant tips….

  11. thiswarisours18 says:

    but yes ballistic tips would be a dick move….explode on impact…. so they could be ballistic dick bullets…

  12. goldengate88 says:

    Dude, you seem to have dick on the brain lol!

    Yeah, I’m with you on the point of a .50 tearing you to shreds in real life, but to make a game balanced and not have a sniper fest I think they need to make it 2 bullets to the body, 1 to the head.

    I dunno, hopefully they will have something worked out for when it releases, then you can haul your ass over here and let us know! Why the hell do we get it 3 days later over here than you? ‘effin pain in the ass!

  13. thiswarisours18 says:

    dont worry ill clue you guys in within the first day i have it. most likely they will put bullet drop in and everything….its just a quick mod…nothing big

    i think they will stick to bc2 standards more on launch date otherwise that would be a major syep down

    from bullet drop to no bullet drop, 2HK to 1HK i doubt it. there would be no challenge

  14. thiswarisours18 says:

    okay couple of things i discovered.

    1. they took off bullet drop because supposedly its harder to get headshots now…
    2. 1HK to body and head, 2HK to limbs.
    3. when using the scope you are not limited to only seeing within the scope, you can see around you.

    so fear not it should be beast. with iHS, the force is lol.

  15. Fabian says:

    Did you guys notice how fast the characters run? Like MW2, crackhead fast. This game is gonna be great.

    This should contain me till February/March 2011 🙂
