As I am not such a good shooter myself, I rely on the excellent auto-aim in the game ;) Which leads to kills in general and not head shots.

After I finished the main story I tried to do the replays of the street crimes (read „Masker gunman”) to add up the head shots. Unfortunately these did not add up my totals. Maybe this will work for others, but note: CHECK STATS IN BETWEEN. Not that you replay it 20 times to find out you are still at 10.

Anyway, what worked like a charm for me was to replay from the CASE menu option the case: "Patrol Desk / Armed and Dangerous”. This is a very quick one, short drive and you get a shotgun to start. There are few robbers outside behind car and 3 inside on the same spot each time. Just auto-aim and lift stick a bit to get the head shot As you wield the shotgun, the range is better and almost guaranteed head shot for it.

Mission is short, saves immediately and goes to replay case right away, rinse and repeat and POP ;)
