Verse
This sounds like its played with a delay pedal  with a wah wah pedal in up position 
making each note sound twice ex1

I got it to sound like the song with these two pedals.

You could also play each note below twice while palm muting to get the same effect as in 
the second example ex2

Why is this tuned down a 1/2 step?

You dont have to tune down half a step, i did because i usually have my guitar tuned down. In E tuning the chords for the Verse are Em A D G and for Chorus Em A D G, Em A F#m G
