This one seems like it might be hard but it is actually quite easy (though a bit time consuming). The first thing you'll need to do is get to breakdown level 4 and make sure you have a hero who has maxed out shooting (Most military heroes have this).

Now, select that hero and go into your skill page (up on the d-pad) and scroll down to special abilities. Hopefully you have not assigned one yet, or have already assigned the necessary skill: Focus Aim.

Now, equip a gun that is either automatic (AR/SMG/LMG) or Semi-automatic (Pistols/Carbines). The reason for this is that Focus Aim slows down time so much a bolt action or pump shotgun will take way too long to get 5 shots off. A silencer is not really needed, but it might help keep you from getting swarmed once Focus Aim runs out since you will have little to no stamina left.

Now, find a horde. This is the easiest group of zombies to target since they are all normal and will not contain SWAT zombies which can not be shot in the head. Get close enough so you feel comfortable lining up shots, zoom in if you are able to (Click LS) and press cn_LB while aiming with your gun and time will slow down. Take your time and line up your shots to get the 5 headshots. If you find you are running out of stamina to quickly eat a snack before going into Focus Aim and it should deplete slower.
