The Short Magazine Lee-Enfield, AKA SMLE, is a British bolt-action rifle featured in Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun, Medal of Honor: European Assault and Medal of Honor: Heroes. The Enfield was the standard rifle for the British Army from 1895 until 1957. The Enfield had many variants, most notably the De Lisle carbine which was a heavily modified Enfield rifle developed for commando units

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Spearhead and BreakthroughEdit

The Lee-Enfield appears in the game Allied Assault in the 2 expansion packs, Spearhead and Breakthrough.

Single PlayerEdit

The SMLE is a weapon usable in Spearhead's first mission "Welcome to France." The player receives it when he/she meets up with a trio of British Commandos who inform the player of scattered 101st Airborne paratroopers, who give him/her a Lee-Enfield, a Mk. 2 Sten SMG, and an Webley Revolver. It has as much power as the Springfield, but with the highest ammo capacity of all bolt-action rifles, it is essentially the best one to use in Allied Assault.


In Breakthrough, the Enfield is used by Allied forces as their main sniper rifle. It is a 1-hit kill to the head and chest, 2 to the torso, and 3 hit kill on the limbs, and the capacity of 10 rounds is huge for a bolt-action of such power, these qualities make this weapon the best bolt action rifles in the game.

Medal of Honor: FrontlineEdit

In Medal of Honor: Frontline, the SMLE can be seen being used by the British paratroopers in Arnhem Knights. It is unobtainable by the player. Although the paratroopers seem to use a bolt, there is no handle present on the rifle. 

Medal of Honor: Rising SunEdit

The Lee-Enfield is in the game Medal of Honor: Rising Sun used only by Allied NPC's, it is seen used by real-life guerilla fighter Martin Clemmens on Guadalcanal in the mission Pistol Pete and by other native guerilla fighters against IJA (Imperial Japanese Army) forces. 

Medal of Honor: European AssaultEdit

Only appears in the North African campaign as one of the starting weapons the SMLE has great accuracy, range and stopping power, and is equipped with a scope. The Enfield is a good weapon to sniper enemies from a long range. Unfortunately the Enfield only has 5 rounds in it's magazine unlike in real life where the Enfield has 10 rounds in it's magazine. This may be done to balance out the weapon.

Medal of Honor: Heroes Edit

The Enfield returns in Heroes and in campaign can be picked up in a few levels. It appears in multiplayer/skirmish mode as well as a selectable starting weapon. Usually takes 2 shot to kill an enemy, one shot if it's on low health or a heashot. It holds only 5 rounds making the Gewehr-43 a superior weapon with twice as much ammo in the magazine. The Enfield uses the M1 Garand's sounds even the *ping* sound in reload. In Heroes 2 the Enfield replaced by the Springfield which model is a modified and retextured version of the Enfield's model.  


  • The SMLE in Frontline uses the same firing sound as the M1 Garand.
  • The Enfield typically is shown reloading via magazine changes, in reality, the magazine was only detachable for ease of cleaning, not reloading, soldiers were issued 1 spare magazine, and 12 stripper clips, this was the standard way of reloading all box magazine fed rifles of the era, including the G41, G43 and SVT 38/40 rifles
