Heer Infantry are the standard German soldiers encountered during the Medal of Honor series, they appear in all games except Medal of Honor: Rising Sun, Pacific Assault, Medal of Honor (2010), and Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Medal of Honor and Underground Edit

General descriptionEdit

These soldiers are the standard German infantry for most of the game, but in later levels are replaced by more elite Waffen-SS units.

WeaponsEdit

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Edit

General descriptionEdit

In the next Medal of Honor game, Allied Assault, the German main infantry are seen in all levels of the game. They use a vast array of weaponry, from the Kar98k to the MG42, from the Gewehr 43 to the MP40. They take on many appearances. As seen below.

WeaponsEdit

AppearancesEdit

The German Heer Infantry come in a variety of shapes and sizes, as shown below.

Medal of Honor: Frontline Edit

General descriptionEdit

Like in Medal of Honor and Underground, these soldiers are the standard German infantry for most of the game, but in later levels are replaced by more elite Waffen-SS units.

WeaponsEdit

Medal of Honor: European Assault Edit

European Heer Infantry Edit

General description Edit

These soldiers are the standard soldier found in the first theatre of the game, St. Nazaire. They are armed with any of a multitude of weapons, and wear grey-green uniforms and coal-scuttle helmets.

Weapons Edit

Behaviour Edit

These soldiers are the grunts of the Wehrmacht. They will use cover, blindfire, and suppress the player and his or her allies to cover their own comrades. They are also very fast to melee the player, and will charge very quickly before landing several quick blows.

Fighting against them Edit

Their AI might be good, but not great. They are slow to react to much, and focus, 85% of the time, on the player, allowing his or her allies to kill them. Their aim is also fairly bad. Just peeking around cover will allow the player to get good shots off and not get hit.

Desert Heer Infantry Edit

General description Edit

Found in just one theatre, the North Africa theatre, these soldiers are dressed in khaki uniforms and sand-colored helmets.

Winter Heer Infantry Edit

General Description Edit

Armed largely the same as their western counterparts, the Winter Heer infantry are approximately the same in terms of AI. They are different, however, in that they wear white coats and helmets, as opposed to grey-green and coal-scuttle. They are found in two theatres, the Battle of the Bulge theatre and the Russia theatre.

Medal of Honor: Vanguard Edit

General descriptionEdit

They are first seen in the mission Der Bunker wearing a green-grey standard Wehrmacht field jacket with Unteroffizier's insignia and an olive coloured steel helmet. They replaced the Italian Blackshirts in the Sicilian campaign. They usually come in a group of 3-5 soldiers and sometimes throw a grenade at the player. They are not very good at aiming, mostly when using a rifle against the player, but can be a serious threat when they are using an SMG, as they will spray mostly half of their ammo at the player.

Common tacticsEdit

They commonly use rifles and SMGs; they use assault rifles rather rarely. They will use cover a lot of time and will throw a grenade if they run out of ammunition. They will run to the nearest cover if the player throws a grenade; they will sometimes blindfire at the player or an ally to support other German troops and will also charge at the player and melee him.

WeaponsEdit

Fighting agaisnt themEdit

Using a grenade will kill them in close range. The player should use an SMG or MG42, as their high rate of fire can dispose of them quickly. They rarely, but will sometimes dodge out from his cover to get a better look and expose themselves at the player, giving him a good chance to kill them.

TriviaEdit

In the Der Bunker mision during the assault on the German coastal bunker complex in the far left pillbox there are two German soldiers that man the MG42. Both of them have the European Assault character models, and after the player gets inside the bunker they disappear.

Medal of Honor: Airborne Edit

Tropical Heer Infantry Edit

General description Edit

Tropical Heer

Tropical Heer infantry as seen on the loading screen.

The Tropical Heer Infantry appear as soldiers wearing light green uniforms, tan pants, and tan helmets. They have 110 health, and replace Blackshirts late in "Operation Husky".

Common tactics Edit

Like the Vicecapo Blackshirts, Tropical Heer Infantry are equipped with MP40 submachine guns. However, Heer infantry are somewhat more skilled combatants than Blackshirts. They've got better aim and firearm control.

They will move from cover to cover much more efficiently and will attempt to get out of the way if the player starts shooting at them. They will occasionally, although still rarely, lob grenades at the player, and blindfire to suppress the player.

Weapons Edit

  • Melee

Fighting against them Edit

These soldiers, although definitely better fighters compared to the Italian Blackshirts or Vicecapo Blackshirts, are still not particularly difficult enemies. Dispatching single enemies is about as easy as dispatching a Blackshirt, only requiring one rifle shot or a three-round submachine gun burst.

When found in groups, they are more effective than their Italian counterparts. They are more inclined to move, and will toss grenades to flush the player out of cover. Therefore, the player's best bet is to move quickly from cover to cover and toss grenades occasionally, picking off fleeing enemy as they move.

European Heer Infantry Edit

General Description Edit

They have 110 health, and use a Gewehr 43 semi-automatic rifle. They appear in the second, and third missions of the campaign, "Operation Avalanche", and "Operation Neptune".

Common tactics Edit

European Heer Infantry are equipped with G43 rifles. They have good aim and firearm control compared to the Blackshirts.

They will move from cover to cover much more efficiently than the Blackshirts and will attempt to get out of the way if the player starts shooting at them. They will occasionally, although still rarely, lob grenades at the player.
