'Medal of Honor: Warfighter' team turned down man who shot bin Laden

By
The man who shot Osama bin Laden was refused a consultancy role on Medal of Honor: Warfighter, it has been revealed.

Known as 'The Shooter' to protect his identity, the retired soldier told Esquire that he was refused a role as consultant on the title because EA wanted to use active soldiers.

His uncle is said to have contacted EA on The Shooter's behalf after hearing that the firm had hired 30 soldiers as consultants.

It has since been revealed that seven of the active Navy SEALs were disciplined for their involvement in the game following its release.

The SEALs were reprimanded for allegedly revealing secrets during development, though it is unknown what manner of confidential information was revealed and whether that information was used in the final game.


Medal of Honor: Warfighter released last October on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Electronic Arts has since put the franchise on hold following its poor performance at retail.
