Medal of Honor Ranks and XP: Leveling Up in MoH

The Level progression system in Medal of Honor is very similar to that seen in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, or indeed many modern online console shooters. For every important action you complete during a Medal of Honor Multiplayer Round, you receive XP - these rewards can be for killing enemies, with bonuses for multiple kills, completing objectives or deploying Score Chain Rewards. At the end of each Round you may receive further XP bonuses dependent on your own and your team's performance. The XP from each round is cumulative, adding to your overall XP Score, and when you reach certain landmarks, you go up a Rank, at which point a new Weapon Unlock becomes available. The only major difference in Medal of Honor to, say, Modern Warfare 2 in regards to leveling up is that you rank up independently in each of the 3 Classes, and XP earned while playing a particular Class only counts towards your progress in that Class' Ranks. Therefore, it is entirely possible to be a Level 15 Rifleman, with all the available Weapon Unlocks for that Class, yet still be rooted at Level 1 as a Sniper, with only the basic equipment.

The following are the 15 Levels in Medal of Honor Multiplayer, with the corresponding XP requirement:
Level 1 (Recruit): 0 XP
Level 2 (Regular): 250 XP
Level 3 (Expert): 350 XP
Level 4 (Veteran): 500 XP
Level 5 (Operator): 800 XP
Level 6 (Commander): 1100 XP
Level 7 (Elite): 1500 XP
Level 8 (Tier 1 Recruit): 2000 XP
Level 9 (Tier 1 Regular): 2400 XP
Level 10 (Tier 1 Expert): 2800 XP
Level 11 (Tier 1 Veteran): 3200 XP
Level 12 (Tier 1 Operator): 3600 XP
Level 13 (Tier 1 Commander): 4000 XP
Level 14 (Tier 1 Elite): 4400 XP
Level 15 (Tier 1 Warfighter): 4800 XP
Medals and Ribbons

As you complete certain objectives, kills and other gameplay feats during the course of Medal of Honor Multiplayer, you are awarded Medals and Ribbons which are displayed in your Service Record. Again, anyone who has played Call of Duty or Halo Multiplayer will be familiar with such Medals, which are primarily for bragging rights and don't affect your overall progress through the game's Ranks.
Medal of Honor XP Rewards in Multiplayer

Below is a selection of the Multiplayer XP bonuses you are awarded each time you complete an action during a Round:
Kill: +10 XP
Kill Assist: +5 XP
Headshot: +5 XP
Melee Kill: +5 XP
Double Kill: +10 XP
Triple Kill: +15 XP
Revenge Kill: +5 XP
Tier 1 Kill (Enemy Level 8 or Above): +5 XP
Capture The Flag (Sector Control): +30 XP
Capture The Flag Assist (Sector Control): +20 XP
Plant A Bomb (Objective Raid): + 15XP
Explode A Bomb (Objective Raid): + 30 XP

The use of Score Chain Rewards also give you XP bonuses, the exact XP number being dictated by the number of enemy players killed of teammates alive when you deploy them.

 

Medal of Honor Score Chain Rewards

As your score increases during a single life in a Round of Medal of Honor Multiplayer, you get access to 7 Score Chain Rewards. These are similar to the Killstreak Rewards featured in the recent Call of Duty titles, but unlike Killstreaks, these Score Chain Rewards are not chosen by the player but instead follow a set 7 Tier path. What is interesting is you get a choice between an Offensive Reward or a Defensive bonus, which can also affect fellow teammates, so you need to make the best tactical choice for your team at that point in the Round. These Medal of Honor Score Chain Rewards also provide further XP bonuses.

The following Score Chain example is for Coalition players in MoH Multiplayer Round:
Tier 1 (Unlocked at 40 Points): Offensive - Mortar Strike, Defensive - UAV
Tier 2 (Unlocked at 100 Points): Offensive - Rocket Strike, Defensive - Match Ammo (Increased Bullet Damage)
Tier 3 (Unlocked at 160 Points): Offensive - Guided Missile, Defensive - Flak Jacket (Health Bonus)
Tier 4 (Unlocked at 230 Points): Offensive - Artillery, Defensive - Armor Piercing Bullets
Tier 5 (Unlocked at 300 Points): Offensive - A10 Thunderbolt Strafing Run, Defensive - Counter UAV
Tier 6 (Unlocked at 380 Points): Offensive - Airstrike, Defensive - Sabot Rounds (Improved Match Ammo)
Tier 7 (Unlocked at 450 Points): Offensive - Cruise Missile, Defensive - Kevlar Jacket (Improved Flak Jacket)

Once your score passes 450 Points in a single life and you have unlocked Tier 7, a x2 Multiplier is applied to any subsequent Points you score.
Conclusion

In both feel and form, Medal of Honor multiplayer does bear a strong resemblance to its DICE predecessor Battlefield: Bad Company 2, albeit with a lot of the tactical flexibility of that game simplified and streamlined. For those looking for a quick and relatively straight-forward fix of online miltary multiplayer, Medal of Honor may well just be the ticket, especially if EA expands the content that ships with the game with new Modes, maps and weapons to unlock. However, coming just a month after Halo: Reach and with Call of Duty: Black Ops imminent, it's hard to see this new Medal of Honor taking a huge chunk out of those franchises' multiplayer fanbases.

In the next part of our Medal of Honor Multiplayer Guide, we'll take a look at the various Multiplayer weapons available to each Class in MoH.

 

Medal of Honor Weapon Guide - Introduction

In the second part of our Medal of Honor Multiplayer Guide, we're going to cover the most important part of any online first person shooter: the weapons. Medal of Honor may not have the range of guns and other toys featured in a certain well-known FPS franchise, but its collection of real-life weapons have been comprehensively modelled and balanced for multiplayer gameplay.

In this article, we'll take you through the weapons available to the 3 Medal of Honor Classes, give you the full Weapon Unlock Trees for the Rifleman, Special Ops and Sniper, as well as taking a look at MoH's 3 Slot weapon modification system and the unlockable attachments.
Medal of Honor Rifleman Weapons

The following weapons are available to the Rifleman Class as they progress through the Levels in Medal of Honor Multiplayer:

Coalition:

Colt M16A4




This is the standard weapon for the Coalition Rifleman Class, already unlocked at Level 1 (Recruit). A good all-round assault rifle.


M249 (Mk. 46 Mod 0)




This Light Machine Gun unlocks at Level 4 (Veteran). A very powerful weapon in the right hands, but it can be difficult to accurately control your fire.


Opposing Force:

AK-47




One of the most famous weapons in the world, the AK-47 is the standard assault rifle for the Opposing Force Rifleman, unlocked at Level 1 (Recruit)

Kalashnikov PKM




Unlocked at Level 4 (Veteran), this is a fine weapon, capable of inflicting brutal damage on enemy troops.

Unlockable by Both Forces:

FN F2000 Tactical Assault Rifle




Beautifully modelled in Medal of Honor, with so much attention to detail you can actually read the manufacturer's logo when you reload, the F2000 is a stunning weapon that you can unlock at Level 9 (Tier 1 Regular).

Veteran Weapons

Each Force can unlock enhanced "Veteran" versions of their standard Assault Rifle at Level 10 (Tier 1 Expert), and their Light Machine Gun at Level 11 (Tier 1 Veteran).

Using Enemy Weapons

Riflemen unlock the ability to use their opponent's Assault Rifle at Level 12 (Tier 1 Operator), and Light Machine Gun at Level 14 (Tier 1 Elite).





Medal of Honor Special Ops Weapons

These weapons are unlocked as your make your through the Special Ops Class Ranks in Multiplayer in Medal of Honor:

Coalition:

Colt M4A1




This carbine is a particularly useful weapon once the Suppressor and Red Dot Sight have ben unlocked and added, enabling the Special Ops Class to down enemies rapidly. It is unlocked for the Special Ops Class at Level 1 (Recruit).

Remington 870 MCS




A powerful 12 Gauge shotgun, Spec Ops unlock this weapon at Level 4 (Veteran). It makes the ideal weapon for clearing enclosed areas on city maps, or getting up close and personal with an enemy under the cover of a smoke grenade.

Saab M136 AT4




This is the default special weapon for the Coalition Special Ops trooper, a powerful launcher capable of taking out several enemy troops at once, or causing major structural damage to their position.




Opposing Force:

Kalashnikov AKS-74U




Essentially a scaled-down version of the AK-47, this is the default weapon of the Opposing Force Spec Ops Class, available at Level 1 (Recruit).

Tula Arms TOZ-194




A brutal 12 Gauge shotgun, particularly useful in the confined spaces of the Kabul City Ruins map, unlocked at Level 4 (Veteran).

Bazalt RPG-7




Like the Coalition, the Opposing Force Special Ops Class possesses a rocket launcher to cause mayhem with, in this case the famous RPG-7.

Unlockable by Both Forces:

FN P90 Sub-Machine Gun




When you hit Level 9 (Tier 1 Regular) as the Special Ops Class, you get to unlock the mighty FN P90 sub-machine gun, an extraordinary killing weapon despite its diminutive size.

Veteran Weapons

Special Ops on each Force get the souped-up "Veteran" versions of their respective Carbines at Level 10 (Tier 1 Expert), and their Combat Shotguns at Level 10 (Tier 1 Veteran).

Using Enemy Weapons

Special Ops can use their opponent's Carbine at Level 12 (Tier 1 Operator) and Combat Shotgun at Level 14 (Tier 1 Elite).
