Scope Sensitivity Tweak[edit]

When aiming down sights, even the smallest of mouse movements will cause the crosshair to "skip" several dozen pixels, interfering with the ability to aim precisely at small targets. This can be addressed in the following ways:

Iron Sight and Scope Sensitivity Tweak[citation needed]
  1. Launch game at least once and configure your controls
  2. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\EA Games\Medal of Honor Airborne(tm)\Config\MOHAWeapon.ini
  3. Locate section [MOHAGame.WeaponTrueTriggerComponent] and tweak these cvars:
LateralAmplitude=0 // Multiplier for how much the scope "drifts" horizontally.

VerticalFrequency=0// How quickly the scope drift goes through it's pattern


This will work only for singleplayer. For multiplayer you'd have to delete MOHAWeapon.ini and let game generate new one.
Not working with iron sights.
Enhanced OpenGL render[citation needed]
  1. Download and install the following enhanced OpenGL render to smooth out the significant crosshair "skipping" when trying to aim with sights.

Toggle Aim Down Sights[edit]

Toggle Aim Down Sights[citation needed]

Open a new AutoHotkey script & insert the following.

If NotPushed := Not NotPushed
Send {RButton Down}
Send {RButton Up}


If you prefer to use Middle Mouse Button replace all instances of RButton with MButton.
