    So this sounds a lot harder than it is. "5 headshots," you might be thinking five sniper shots or something. Luckily, many types of "bullets" (could be Skye's little spiky projectile thingies or whatever) count and you can easily get this one with Viktor (who is unlocked from the beginning) and his assault rifle, or anyone who fires a lot of bullets in quick succession. I just used the example of Viktor because he's one of the starting characters. Just aim high and you don't have to kill them. You'll know you're getting headshots because of the "ding ding ding" sound effect and the little yellow cross-hairs that pop up.

    As others have stated in the comments, other easy characters to get this with include Ruckus and Skye.

    If you'd like a visual, here is a clip of when I got the achievement (you can see the in-game award for it pop in the top left):

    KBop a dooI used the example of Viktor because he's free for everyone, whereas you'd have to pay for Ruckus (once the weekend of everyone being unlocked ends) and people usually aren't too keen on solutions that tell you to buy someone smile

    But yes, you're right, this could easily be obtained with anyone with a machine-gun like gun... Skye, Ruckus, etc.!

    TranierxI got this post round (when it goes slow mo and grey) which is great that you can do this.

    Fristi61Such a common achievement and I can't for the life of me seem to get this. I've got Viktor to level 5 now but still no cigar. How long did it take for you?

    KBop a dooNot to be a poop about it, but it was one of my first achievements cry Some follow-up advice would be to find a tanky target and just spray into their head (you'll kill squishy characters too quickly). Look for standstill targets also, like Ruckus when he's ulting would be an easy target. Perhaps test out other characters if Viktor isn't doing the trick.

    Fristi61Heh, that's okay. I've definitely been getting some 3 and maybe even one 4 headshots in a row just today but overall the characters move way, way too fast for my taste in this game. I can never find anybody standing still long enough.
    Been mixing characters up now that I've got Viktor too lvl 5 for the mastery achievement. I'll keep on at it :D

    KBop a dooI can imagine this would be harder nowadays than when I got it. Every character seems so mobile now shock When I got it, there probably were 15-16 characters total? Now there's gotta be 30+. Good luck out there!

    Fristi61Could've sworn I got this 3 times with Ruckus, once with Viktor and once with Skye in the past days. Actually looking at Recent Winners, this one and other combat achievements haven't had any winners since 26 Sep. I think the recent patch made them unobtainablecry

    WyyvernI can vouch for Ruckus. Was having trouble with Viktor and Skye, but got it with Ruckus pretty much immediately in the first game.

    Leo AscendentThis is also unlockable in training now. Just got it in an Onslaught training game with Ruck.
