FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile fact-checked the video, we found the claim to be FAKE.

On watching the video closely, we notice the words, ‘Move W to zoom in and S to Zoom out’, ‘Press and hold left shift to hold breath and steady aim’ and ‘ hunt and kill cramped enemies’ written on the top of the video.

On putting the images through Reverse Image Search, we found that it is a video game called ‘Medal of Honor’. A game released by Electronic Arts (EA) in 2010.

We found the same video on YouTube, uploaded on Oct 12, 2010. “Medal Of Honor 2010 – Sniping & Thermal Scope Gameplay [FULLHD]” the title read.

The above information proves that the viral video is a clip of a video game demonstration and is NOT REAL. Hence, the claim attached to the video is FAKE.
