    Just did this in 5mins after finishing the game without ever using the Bolt-action rifle.

    Mode: Chapter Replay Elite
    Level: The Acropolis
    Diff: Adventurer (so you can take a heap of damage)

    Simply run to the first cutscene (via campfire if you need to get the bolt-action rifle), swap to the bolt-action rifle, Shoot as many guys in the head as you can until they all die (or you do), reload checkpoint and repeat. Should only take 4 or so reloads, depending on how good a shot you are :) Easy.

    PezzaLezzaCan confirm the Goldenfang didn't contribute for me - got at least 45 headshots and nothing!

    Not a solution as much as a warning:
    Headshot kills with the Goldenfang rifle DO NOT COUNT.
    I found this out the hard way because I was able to use the Goldenfang in the campaign absolutely ages before I unlocked all 4 parts of the normal bolt action rifle. I'm playing on Survivor difficulty so trying to get headshots with this slow, loud rifle made my combat encounters much more difficult than they would have been otherwise.
    And then figuring out they weren't even counting for this stupid achievement was very annoying.
    Don't make the same mistake as me: wait until you unlock the regular bolt action rifle.

    pezboybenGood looking out! I just realized that I could use Goldenfang and started trying for this, got through a whole section headshotting everyone in sight and saw no progress on the tracker.
