Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Cheats (MOHAA Cheats)

Here you will find instructions on how to cheat (gasp!) in Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. If you came here by accident and do not want to cheat, then please click here. If you want to know how to turn on "God Mode" or if you think it is more fun to start the game armed with a Panzerschreck and an StG 44, then read on!

Note: I believe these cheats all work with Medal of Honor Allied Assault Spearhead and with Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough (both expansion packs). There may be a few subtle variations, but the main two ('wuss' and 'dog') both work as expected.

Setting up the Medal of Honor cheats

To use these cheats, you need to change the properties of the shortcut icon that you click to start the game.

Find the shortcut icon on your desktop (Screen 1), right-click it (Screen 2) and bring up the shortcut properties (Screen 3).

You need to slightly change the "Target" box from:

"C:\...path to game...\MOHAA.exe"


"C:\...path to game...\MOHAA.exe" +set ui_console 1 +set cheats 1 +set thereisnomonkey 1

In other words, you need to add the string +set ui_console 1 +set cheats 1 +set thereisnomonkey 1 to the end of the quoted part. Note the position of the quotes around the program path, and that the +set ui_console... stuff isn't quoted. Make sure you don't change the path to the mohaa.exe file either!

Now you have made these changes, start the game by double-clicking on this modified shortcut icon.

Important! Make sure you start the game by clicking on the MODIFIED MOHAA shortcut. If you start the game via the CD-ROM autorun or an alternative shortcut then the cheats won't work.

Once in the game, you need to bring up the game console by pressing the "~" or "¬" key (Screen 4). (Press the "~" or "¬" key again to close the console.)

Using the Medal of Honor Cheats

Normally, typing wuss (all weapons) and dog ('God' mode) is all you'll need to do.

If you get a message that says "You must run the server with +set cheats 1" then you have probably started the game without using your special mohaa shortcut.

If you type "cheats" and press 'enter' in the console if they arent working then it should say something like "Cheats is: 0 Default: 0". If it says this then type "cheats 1" and it should work. Note: Do this before you load a map because it will have to restart.

Things to watch out for when using the Medal of Honor cheats

A common mistake it to get the path to the file mohaa.exe wrong. When altering the shortcut properties, leave the path (e.g. "C:\program Files\EA GAMES\MOHAA\MOHAA.exe") exactly as it is.

Note that the path to the file MOHAA.exe is quoted because it contains spaces (in "Program Files" and "EA Games"). If you have no spaces in the path to your MOHAA executable, then you can omit the quotes.

The words after the executable path are called arguments (or sometimes parameters). The arguments passed to the MOHAA.exe file set the value for "ui_console" to "1" and for "cheat" to "1". It is these values that affect the way the game runs - without them the cheats won't work.

It may seem like an obvious thing to say, but to run the game with the cheats you must double click on this newly altered shortcut. If you run the game from the autostart when you put the CD-ROM in your drive, then the cheats won't work. The magic is in the arguments passed to the MOHAA executable shortcut that we have altered, and these have no effect when the game starts in any way other than by clicking on it.
