    I have made a guide on how to get this achievement in a versus private match. I show how to change all the weapons to the dropshot and I show how to get the all the headshots. I hope it helps!

    Note: For this solution you need a friend or an extra controller.

    xArjenRobben10xGreat guide. Got the achievement within 10 kills. I kept letting go too late but got the hang of it in the end.

    Coffee CPHYou do not need a friend, nor an extra controller. Voted down.

    You'll walk past a Dropshot near the end of Act III: Chapter 4 shortly after a cutscene where you decide to head toward the Ore Transporter to go down into the mine. (I think this is the first time the weapon is available in the campaign).

    Immediately after, a few enemies will spawn that can both be headshotted with a well timed drop. After running out of ammo or killing the first two enemies, restarting the checkpoint puts you right back in front of the weapon again for quick and easy re-tries. Your total won't be lost.

    Tip from Dread Reaver -
    The trick for this is to not aim at the enemy exactly, but to aim at the top of a box or crate that is next to the enemy. Then the dropshot should detonate at roughly head level. In this example, it's usually best to try and go for the enemy hiding at the back of the room after picking up the dropshot.

    You'll get this playing online normally, but if you want to get it over with, find a buddy or a second controller and set up a private match, switch the weapons to Dropshot for extra ammo (Versus, Host Private Match, cn_start and Switch Weapons) and follow the video. The secret is in aiming a bit to the right once you figure out the right distance. Also, if you are horrible with the Drop Shot, the right distance shown in the video only requires you push the trigger once instead of holding it.
