Medal of Honor: European Assault is the 2005 eighth installment in the Medal of Honor series which returns from the Pacific to the battlefields of Europe. The game was developed by EA and was released in the summer of 2005 for three consoles PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Xbox. The storyline for it was written by screenwriter John Milius. The game was originally supposed to be released as Medal of Honor: Dogs of War, but then underwent another name change. Despite the title, European Assault is not set exclusively in Europe, but once again in North Africa. There are four single-player campaigns, where the player takes control of the American Lt. William Holt from 1942 on. In addition to North Africa, where supporting the British Desert Rats in Tunisia, the campaign takes part in the battles for the German U-boat bunker in Saint-Nazaire, fight alongside the Soviets in Stalingrad, and finally resist the German Battle of the Bulge in Belgium. The game also offers content such as a bullet-time mode, officers as boss opponents, and "power-ups" for the first time.

Note: An emulator was used to capture very high-resolution screenshots of this game for clarity. This upscaling required disabling some post-processing effects due to resulting graphical glitches. All screenshots have been checked against original PS2 footage to ensure that any glitches noted on this page are also present in the PS2 version.

The following weapons appear in the video game Medal of Honor: European Assault:


Colt M1911

The Colt M1911 is the only sidearm in the game which is the standard secondary weapon for both factions in the multiplayer mode. Some NPCs have holstered Colts which they never use in-game.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

The M1928A1 Thompson appears incorrectly as the "M1 Thompson SMG" and is the player character's starting weapon in the "St. Nazaire" campaign missions. It is worth noting that the weapon is modeled with a 30-round box magazine, that only contains 20 rounds.

The MP40 is the main weapon of the German infantrymen in-game. Referred to as the "MP40 SMG", it serves with the animation and the model as a base for the following Medal of Honor titles.

The Winchester Model 1912 is called "Shotgun" in-game and is the weapon of choice for close engagements.

Gewehr 43

The Gewehr 43 appears simply as the "Gewehr". Its first appearance in January 1943 during the Stalingrad missions is anachronistic; the rifle was put into production in October of that year. A scoped rifle is playable in the "Battle of the Bulge" single-player campaign missions.

Mosin Nagant M91/30

In the second mission on the Eastern Front, the player character starts with a Mosin Nagant M91/30 with a turned-down bolt handle. The scoped variant is available for both factions in the multiplayer.

Sturmgewehr 44

German soldiers in the second Russian mission used Sturmgewehr 44 assault rifles which is an anachronism. The use of the Sturmgewehr in the mission set in the Ardennes in December 1944 is correct. In multiplayer, it is available to the "Heavy Weapons" class for the Axis.
