    This cheevo will be awarded for killing 30 human enemies with headshots.

    The cheevo is as simple as it sounds, just aim for heads whenever you kill any human enemy.
    It does not matter what weapon you use or if you shoot the body first as long as the final killing shot is to the head.

    The game has many opportunities to work towards this cheevo but for me the mission "Frontline" has an abundance of "Reds" & "Reich" enemies for your headshot madness.

    Keep in mind while working on this you can couple it with a few other cheevos at the same time.

    If you have a scope, and keep further than 30m away and get headshots to work towards:
    Metro ReduxMarksmanThe Marksman achievement in Metro Redux worth 56 pointsKill 15 human enemies with Headshots from at least 30 meters' distance.


    If you are using a pistol with a silencer you can also work towards the following 2 cheevos too:
    Metro ReduxCowboyThe Cowboy achievement in Metro Redux worth 26 pointsKill 100 enemies using revolvers.

    Metro ReduxShadowThe Shadow achievement in Metro Redux worth 20 pointsStealthily kill 15 Enemies.


    Happy headshots peeps

    During Chapter 3: Khan at the start of the mission once you exit the air duct kill everyone in this first section. (You can also use this method to get the Snake and Tank achievements at the same time you can also reuse this spot to get the weapon achievements too!)

    Once you have killed everyone check out the left hand side tunnel and you will find a silenced weapon with optics atop of a crate if you cant find this no worries in the right hand tunnel at the back will be the same weapon silenced without the optics.

    Stay in this tunnel and head to the opposite end and enter the room, in this room will be a door on the left once you press cn_X to open the door you will get a checkpoint.

    Now with this checkpoint in hand the door will open and you will be presented with the opportunity to easily kill a single enemy just strolling about.

    Once you have killed him, restart the checkpoint it will place you in the same spot and take no longer then a few seconds to load, do it again and again until you get your achievements.

    This achievement, along with 13 others, can be knocked out easily at the first encounter with human enemies in the Lost Tunnel mission. Simply keep reloading the checkpoint if you wish to get this plethora of achievements out of the way. I realize that a lot of them, the weapon kills ones specifically, will come easily when doing your Spartan mode playthrough, but I like to get easy stuff like this out of the way so that I can focus on collectibles and achievements that require a full playthrough or specific areas to obtain. The video below shows this checkpoint farming in action, unlocking most of these achievements. Although I accidentally popped Slice & Dice and Tank before filming them for the video, Tank will come without trying and Slice & Dice is no different than the others. Hope you enjoy!
