From my experience, it does not. However, I've found it hard to break the "crouch, zoom, shoot" habit from BF2142 so I'm looking for others' perspectives.
Does it make sense to crouch in CQ combat? How about at medium range?
My crosshairs shrink ever so much when I crouch. I crouch cause it looks cool, whatever game I play next will have me crouching to increase aim, and it probably increases aim a little bit. I do fire while moving in crouch and find that I can control my fire pretty good.

If you are using one of the LMG and move while firing from the hip I would say crouch.. It barely gives you any extra accuracy but that little can be the difference between life and death.. If you are using the scopes I really don't think crouching will help you.. I do it because of the CZS syndrome.

I was just playing around on an empty server with the shooty and slug to see that unzoomed it did have an effect but if zoomed it didn't change anything. Maybe the other gun are like that if you zoom you have maximum accuracy if not then crouch is better then up... but this still needs some testing.

Since AA2 I am always in the crouch position in BC2 if I aim or hide. In AA2 the crouch or prone (yes: PRONE) position had a great effect on the accuracy of the weapons.
It would be very sad if this has no effect at all in BC2. But the way I see it the effect of crouching is at least not big. Up to now I noticed no difference but I did not test it explicitly.
