Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a first-person shooter video game developed by Danger Close Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is a direct sequel to 2010's series reboot Medal of Honor (2010) and the fourteenth Medal of Honor installment in the series. The title was officially announced on February 23, 2012, and was released in North America on October 23, 2012, in Australia on October 25, 2012, in Europe on October 26, 2012 and in Japan on November 15, 2012 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and Wii U.

The game runs on DICE's Frostbite 2 (the same engine that Battlefield 3 uses).
 The campaign also reveals that the deadly explosive, PETN, had begun to appear across the globe. While hopes were initially held high by EA, the game was a critical and commercial failure with mediocre reviews and poor sales, unlike its mildly successful predecessor, Medal of Honor (2010). The game opens at an undisclosed ship dock in Karachi, Pakistan Task Force Mako is the newly designated team consisting the previously knownU.S. Navy SEALs of Mother, Tom "Preacher" Walker, and Voodoo, who are assigned by DEVGRU to sabotage a black market arms deal, involving an Al-Qaeda linked jihad movement. They successfully plant a charge on the truck that they intend to destroy. When they detonate the charge, a secondary explosion destroys the shipping docks and sinks a cargo ship, forcing the operatives to fight through the chaos and flee. They are later debriefed by Dusty, a U.S. Army Delta Force operative from the previous game, who is their field operations commander. With satellite video taken, the entire team finds out that the docks and the cargo ship was carrying PETN.

The gameplay of Warfighter includes six different classes which are Assault, Sniper, Demolitions, Point Man, Heavy Gunner, and Spec Ops. It uses a fire team system where two people must work together and there are certain perks to working as a team. "Support-actions" return in Warfighter, and now have a bigger impact on the gameplay and how one approaches situations. Also, when one acquires a kill-streak, the player is given a choice on of one or the other, larger kill pile-ups will have greater rewards.

The single-player follows the story of Tier 1 operators. The single-player features various locations including Bosnia, Pakistan, Philippines and Somalia. Medal of Honor: Warfighter's multiplayer was not developed by EA Digital Illusions CE who helped develop Medal of Honor (2010)'s multiplayer. Danger Close Games developed its own multiplayer with DICE's Frostbite 2 engine. Players are involved in a global battle by choosing which country they would like to defend. There are 12 different tier one units from ten different nations that players can choose from. There is also a limited edition of the game that will give players early access to U.S. SEAL Team Sniper equipped with the McMilllan TAC-300. The SEALs determine that the shipment was due for the Philippines after a car chase through the streets of Karachi, and quickly follow the lead toIsabela City, the provincial capital of Basilan, in the southern part of the Philippine Islands. During the height of a typhoon-induced flood, members of the Abu Sayyaf kidnap several hostages for ransom. Mako, working with Philippine SOCOM forces led by General Barrera, attempts to identify the ringleaders and successfully recognize Marwan al-Khalifa conferring with another 'unknown' terrorist head. At that moment, they witness the other 'unknown' leader shooting one of their own men. Preacher requests permission from Barrera to inquire an ID check on the other leader, but is refused.
