Medal of Honor Warfighter Errors, Crashes, Freezes and Fixes


The classic FPS experience is back in action, this time; however, it is set in the modern-day world. Medal of Honor: Warfighter just got released on PC along with Xbox 360 and PS3.

If you are a PC gamer, there are possibilities that you may face some problems/game breaking issues not letting you start or enjoy the game properly. Medal of Honor Warfighter had a descent beta run, but if you are still having problems in the full release, you can look for the solution in the points listed below.

#1 Medal of Honor: Warfighter Punkbuster Fix
Multiplayer of Warfighter is based on Punkbuster as an anti-cheat system. If you are continuously being kicked out of the servers by punkbuster, make sure that you have it update from here using the pbsetup.

#2 Meal of Honor: Warfighter – How to Change FOV
Warfighter allows a greater degree of customization (tweaks) so yes, you can change the default FOV by doing the following:

  • Go to: C:\Users\[Your name]\Documents\EA Games\Medal of Honor\Multiplayer\settings.ini
  • Open the file in notepad and search for the “FOV value”.
  • By default it’s 55, you can change the number to whatever you want.

#3 Medal of Honor: Warfighter Crash Fixes
If the game is being crashed continuously, make sure that you have done the following things:

After exiting steam, Browse to your Medal of Honor installation folder and run the following setups manually:

\Steamapps\Common\medal of honor\install\Redistributable\vc8redist.exe
\Steamapps\Common\medal of honor\install\Redistributable\vcredist.exe
\Steamapps\Common\medal of honor\install\PunkBuster\pbsvc_moh.exe
\Steamapps\Common\medal of honor\install\PhysX\PhysX_9.09.0408_SystemSoftware .exe
\Steamapps\Common\medal of honor\install\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe

And if you are using Windows 7 or Vista, you can do the following to avoid the crashes:

  • Go to the “Start” menu, select “Run”, type “regedit” and click “OK”.
  • Navigate to the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VALVE
  • Right click and select “Permissions”
  • Check the “Allow” boxes for “Admin” and “System” for both “Full control” and “Read”.

#4 Medal of Honor: Warfighter Controls Issue
Started playing the game but the soldier automatically starts moving to a certain direction? Can’t change anything on the menu screen because of repeated up/down movements of cursor? This issue is arising because Medal of Honor can automatically assign your controller, so if you have any controller plugged in, unplug the controller and the issue will be resolved.

#5 Medal of Honor Warfighter: Multiplayer CD Key Issue
The problem was in the previous iteration and there is a possibility that you may also face it in Warfighter. You can do the following to get rid of this issue:

If at any time you are prompted for your CD Key, please right-click the Single Player version of the game after it has been installed and click “View Game CD Key.” You may copy and paste the CD Key from that dialogue. If the “View Game CD Key” option is not available, please Verify Your Game Cache.

    • darkagentJAY Deathbringer 111

      I hope there’s a breach-freeze-fix patch file… :(

      • Mojmass

        For those of you who have a problem of crashing after breaching a door avoid doing headshot and the game won’t crash.
        when you do headshots your breach method upgrade and it cause the game to crash. no patch for this problem so far…

        • suraj

          Well for those who are facing Freeze After Breach Just update your game to 1.0.0.2 it fixes the Breach freeze issue…

          & anybody has Sound lag Fix?..Please Tell me..I had this issue in Battelfield 3 but after updating sound drivers it was ok & we also have to set it to 24 bit.

          But now i have updated sound drivers it’s still have sound lag ..What to do

    • MattAllen

      Hi, I am just starting the first mission at the beach landing and as soon as the screen comes up, my gun points downwards as if I were sprinting and I cannot use mouse buttons or keyboard controls other than the wasd keys, does anyone have some advice please?

      • http://segmentnext.com Ali Asif

        Is your controller plugged in? Try unplugging the other devices except for the mouse and keyboard..

    • saikat

      in this game i have no sound.how can i fix it?

    • nik

      My game crashes every time i Breach a door.
      Im using windows 7 ultimate
      and yes i have tried all of the solutions above… nothing works.

      Also, the sound gets a bit laggy ( 1 sound repeats 3 times)

      • bg

        For sound lag run compatibility mode at win 95 some how it works

        • r1cardo.augusto

          that resolves the violation error doors in the game
          every time you enter the room where the enemies are
          do not shoot them in the head that causes the error
          because the problem is in the skill of breach of doors
          if you try to increase the skill game crashes
          and also you must mending the requirements of video
          The game run in 256 colors

        did you try the all the points mentioned in the article to avoid crashes?

    • josh

      I was able to run in multi player by simply launching from battle log, not within the game itself. mine was quitting quickly to menu.

    • M Dickey

      How do I change settings on the controler. Up is down and down is up.

    • Derek

      There are NO settings.ini for MOHW cuz this gamne is different not like BFBC 2. However you can only change the sprint fov and that’s it. There isn’t another tweak fix out right now unfortunately. Your article is wrong. To change sprint fov which is annoying ingame anyways.

      Document, Prof_Save_Profile and open with notepad and find Field of View.
