    An easy place to get this is on "Agua Verde Charlie" fast travel point. You'll also need an accurate Sniper Rifle will long range as well as a powerful sniper scope. I used the M40A5 with the T5Xi Tactical Scope.

    As soon as you spawn, you'll notice a sniper tower with an enemy directly in front of you at roughly 400m. Take into account the bullet drop and try to kill them. If you fail, you can continue to try to hit them or fast travel to the same location to respawn the enemies on the island in front of you.

    You can also take a boat to this island and kill the sniper with a pistol to get:

    The longshot can be done in the southern part of the Itacua Province on a mountainside across from Bocca Farm. You need to hit a target from over 400 meters to pop this. If you need a sniper be sure to check my other videos showing how to easily unlock a great sniper rifle.

    If you have people to do co-op I would do it from a helicopter. Do not even need a decent scope. Got it in less then a single magazine.

    If you are playing solo I would recommend watching the following video.

    I just got this while doing the train graveyard mission in the Koani province. Head south of the objective, and use the drone and find the sniper on the water tower to spot him. Now just back up till the sniper is 400 meters away ( i aimed for the scope icon above the sniper), hope this helps for anyone struggling with this achievement.

    I did this in Pucara at the Riverine Docks. There is a side mission there to steal a helicopter. Just east of that is another dock with 3 Unidad and 3 cartel members. Sync shot the Unidad and then re spawn, the Unidad will be gone and leave you 3 cartel all standing still on the docks which you can easily snipe with a clear shot from an elevated position from the hill just south of the Riverine Docks.

    Hope this helps, sorry no video. But this worked well for me, even missed the first couple shots and didn't alert them.

    Long Shot Achievement/Trophy

    The "Long Shot" achievement/trophy is earned by killing an enemy with a sniper that is more than 400 meters away from you. This can be done with the first sniper that you find after the first mission which is the "M40A5 Sniper Riffle".
    The easiest spot for this to be done is "Mensez Farm" in the center of "Itacua Providence". On the map there are Santa Blanca Cartel enemies that will always spawn here that just randomly patrol so climb up into the mountains and beside the farm and pull out your Drone or Binoculars to get the distance just right and you will have a clear visible shot.

    When you shoot make sure that you aim higher then your enemy to account for bullet drop and one they die the achievement/trophy will unlock.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask!
