EA reveal Medal of Honor changes from beta

A tonne of people signed up for war back in July to take part in the Medal of Honor beta.  From all the hours of shooting, stabbing, and fragging, DICE have taken data and started tweaking the game to make sure it’s a completely refined experience for when it releases in October. They compiled a long list of changes they’ve made to the multiplayer, such as improving the hit boxes around your character to make sure players are tip-top with their accuracy.

You’ll also be able to toggle crouch and pick up other weapons. Past that there’s a series of weapon tweaks that make guns more powerful and reload times shorter/longer. We all know that DICE are experienced enough for the job, so we have full confidence that these changes are for the better.
