In order to obtain this achievement, you need to have the challenge active at the beginning of your Cold Darkness run. Select "Spinning leaf" as one of your five challenges before starting.

There are a few cards that can make this way easier for you:

- Pick a fully upgraded bow of your choice. That means a grade V card. For example, I used Composite Bow V.
- Pick a master outfit card, so you have all the skills available. I used Sacra Umbra Master Outfit.

Using this setup, you'll have the automatic headshot skill. In order to use it, you need to aim with the bow (hold cn_LT), ready your arrow (hold cn_RT) and zoom in (push cn_RSc). Then, a red marker will appear over the enemy's head, and when you release cn_RT you'll get a headshot.

Also, War Numen suggests a couple of cards that can make it even easier: If you really wanna easy mode this, stick on the Classic Rules card (Infected can only be killed with head-shots & finishers) & the Big Head Enemies card.

Be careful, because, if you aren't using the "Classic rules" card, when the enemies are attacking you, running, or in a higher level than you are, the arrow could hit them in an arm or in the chest, not counting as a headshot. There are two ways to avoid that.

- Sneak around and attack unsuspecting enemies. Because of their way of standing, you'll only be able to get headshots attacking them from the sides or the front, not their back. These enemies are blind, so if you don't do any noise, you'll manage to pull it off.
- Climb onto one of the buildings, and snipe around looking for enemies. As you are aiming from atop, almost every kill will be a guaranteed headshoot. WizardSleeve08 has suggested a great place for this: If you're looking for a nice spot, in the southwest corner of the map there's a small frozen lake area. Right nearby it is a small water tower that provides a pretty decent 360 view. Typically an infected will crawl out from underneath the small docks area to replace some that have been killed, so its almost like spawn camping.

Remember that only normal arrows count. Don't use explosive, fire or poison arrows.
