I haven’t done a “Personal Review” since last year but I thought I’d jot a few things down here for you guys.
This time around, there is only one developer for MOH. [Thank god].
First I’ll note the classes and each class’ ability.
CA=Class ability. GT=Grenade type. W=Weapon class.
Sniper – More bullet drop than MOH, but less than BF3.
CA: Recon stance (Bipod).
GT: Proximity mine.
W: Sniper Rifle.
CA: Grenade Launcher
W: Assault Rifles
CA: Ballistic Armour
GT: Remote Charge
GT: Mini Frags
CA: High Powered Ammunition
W: Assault Rifle
CA: Signal Scan – My personal favourite, allows you to see the enemies through objects for like 2 seconds. Found you!!
W: Assault Rifle
*Note: I play with the ‘Battlefield’ button layout, yes, there is a Battlefield option lol.
So, a few thing I have noted, were things like, whilst you’re in prone position you have to be stationary to fire, you can’t scope and move like in BF3.
At first I was not impressed that the majority of the guns had scopes as the default gun setup, but then [using R2] it let me switch from scope to iron sights. Some guns have the ability to switch between both or obviously some are just set. I got some good/bad news for 320 fans: 1. The 320 barely has any drop so you don’t have to arch it like in BF3. 2. It doesn’t seem like the 320 kills instantly… From what I have seen.
Grenades. Oh grenades, they need cookin’ them grenades needa cookin’! Lol there is like a 5 second fuse time so, I would advice a 3 second cook time before you throw them [as Caini puts it] Pineapples.
The LMG muzzles overheat if used excessively, then there is a really quick cool down period. The heat up to Red, then yellow, then cool down. There is a nice Peak feature, which for the BF3 button layout is terrible, when behind a wall or box you hold Circle, allowing you to peak out from a corner making you a smaller target. But with the Battlefield button layout holding circle and trying to more the right analog is so awkward. Default is L2.
I tweeted MOH about this and they replied: “Thanks for the suggestion, we’ll look into it!”
… So, yeah, let’s hope the change it to holding down L3 or even R3.
Squads and Fire teams.
You can set up your squad in the lobby, 4-6 players in a squad, but you’re in fire teams. So a squad of 4 splits into 2 teams of 2, 6 splits into 3 teams of 2. YOUR PARTNER IS YOUR LIFE LINE AND SUPPLIER! Lol. Basically they supply your ammo, and replenish your health. Whenever you need to restock or heal you just need to turn to your fire team-mate and hold square to ‘fix up’. Also secondary weapons have infinite ammo.
Last note for G18 fans, it’s awesome! Barely any recoil and it fires like the MP7 [Recon class].
