Posted by: Nathaniel at 6/5/2012 1:48 PM
Medal of Honor Warfighter stars every single special forces organization in the world as far as I can tell.  And why wouldn't they?  Shooter fans love the fictional side of special forces so why not inject some reality into it?

Anyway, this afternoon, EA has revealed the various pre-order and limited edition bonuses.

The Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition will include an early unlock for the US SEAL Team Sniper sporting the McMillan TAC-300 sniper rifle.

Pre-order bonuses are as follows:
 
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter SFOD-D Pointman Pack - Gamers will unlock early the U.S. SFOD-D Point Man right when they hit the online battlefield. SFOD-D is known for speed, surprise and violence of action. The Point Man exemplifies this by assuming the inherent danger of placing himself in the first and most exposed position yet mitigates his risk with rapid speed, agility and extreme operational awareness.
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter Trijicon Optics 3 Pack - The Trijicon Optics 3 bundle unlocks three optics for the Heckler & Koch HK416 assault rifle, which includes the Trijicon ACOG, SRS Reflex and RMR, preparing Operators for any engagement. Trijicon’s wide range of brilliant aiming solutions fulfill the Operator’s need for both magnified, self-luminous tactical sights as well as red dot reflex sights that enhance target identification to increase hit probability in both extended-range and close quarter engagements.
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter British SAS Spec Ops Pack - Available via Origin.com, the British SAS Spec Ops packs provides PC gamers with an early unlock of the British SAS Spec Ops. The SAS have served as the model for modern Special Operations around the world and have been operating in covert, low visibility roles in non-permissive environments for decades. The SAS are experts in tradecraft acquired through extensive field experience in special reconnaissance, sabotage, snatch and grab and ambush often penetrating their targets completely undetected.
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter Digital Deluxe Pack - PC Gamers who pre-order the PC Digital Deluxe pack at $69.99 will receive all content from the British SAS Spec Ops pack as well as the Russian Spetsnaz Alfa Group Heavy Gunner. The Spetsnaz utilize and employ heavy weaponry more often than most Special Operations units. They see fire superiority as a priority in any engagement and therefore excel at suppression tactics, covering fire and support for their comrades. PC Digital Deluxe owners will also receive the digital game soundtrack for Medal of Honor Warfighter.
