The Sten is a British submachine gun featured in some Medal of Honor games. It was famous for its recognizable side-mounted magazine. The Silenced version was common among the allied covert ops, but it had low heat tolerance.

Automatic firing was only advised to use when in extreme danger.

Medal of Honor: UndergroundEdit

The Sten Mark II appears in Medal of Honor: Underground. It is first found in Amongst the Dead, the second level in the first mission, Occupied!. It is dropped possibly by Fabrice DelacroixManon Batiste's and Jacques' resistance fellow. He incorrectly states that enemies use the MP 3008 so her Sten will be compatible with their weapons. The MP 3008 appeared in 1945 as an emergency weapon, so it's appearance is anachronistic with the time period (occupied France). The Germans used captured Sten guns classified as the MP.749. But the MP 3008 really was compatible with Sten magazines, since it's only difference with the Sten is the vertical magazine.

There is also a possibility to see the Sten Mark III in the loading screen after successfully completing a level.

The Sten is the most powerful SMG in game, sharing similar power and accuracy with the StG-44. It is used in the missions Occupied and Last Rites at Monte Cassino.

Medal of Honor: Allied AssaultEdit

The Sten Mark V appears in the expansions of Allied Assault. In Spearhead it was used by Sgt.Barnes and Foxhound during the Normandy campaign. In Breakthrough Sgt.Baker used a Sten Mark V during the Monte Cassino campaign along with British soldiers. The Sten has low damage but high rate of fire. It is best suited in close quaters engagements. For longer ranges it is advised to fire it in short bursts to maintain accuarcy. In both games' multiplayer the Sten is available for the British soldiers as a starting weapon. In game the Sten incorrectly called "Sten Mark II" however it is the Mark V variant since the wooden grip and stock.

Medal of Honor: Frontline Edit

The version encountered in-game is not usable by the player and is exclusive to NPCs. The variant encountered in the game is only seen in the level, Arnhem Knights. The variant behaves in the same manner as the StG-44 and even uses the same firing sounds as the StG-44. The model of the Sten Mark II appears to be an unsuppressed variant. Sergeant Kelso always has one. 

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun Edit

The Mk IIS — a silenced variant of the Mark II—appears in Medal of Honor: Rising Sun. It is first usable in Mission 6: Singapore Sling when it is given to the player by Phillip Bromley after his attempted impersonation of Colonel Kandler is compromised. It is then available as a starting weapon for the rest of the game, except the level A Bridge on the River Kwai.

Medal of Honor: European AssaultEdit

The Mk. II reappears in European Assault as a multiplayer weapon.

It's similar as in the Rising Sun, but this time it's held for the magazine and has a blue metal finish. It also has iron sights. 


  • In Rising Sun The sten holds 20 rounds, but it's model shows a 32 round magizine.
  • In the briefing of level 2 of mission "Occupied!" in Medal of Honor Underground, as mentioned above, it is said that the Sten would be compatible with the magazines of the MP 3008. This could have been confused with the MP 38, the earlier predecessor to the MP 40. The MP 40 used a 32-round magazine and 9mm ammunition, so the Sten might be compatible with it.
  • In Rising Sun the weapon uses the same sound effect as the DeLisle carbine from Medal of Honor: Allied Assault: Breakthrough, albeit with a higher rate of fire.
