Get 3 headshot kills with 1 shot while using the Donald’s Horizontal Leveller Barrel EXT.

Easy way to unlock the Achievement:

First you need to buy and equip the Locomotive 12G Shotgun from the Secondary Weapons Menu for $226.400 and the Donald’s Horizontal Leveller Mod (Barrel EXT) for $7.200.
You can use most of the other Shotguns (check list below).

I also used the 000 Buckshot Mod, Accuracy Mod, LED Combo, Rubber Grip, Speculator Sight, 2 Piece Stock to boost the accuracy & stability.

Make sure you have good Armor (Combined Tactical Vest) and choose a contract on NORMAL difficulty with A.I turned off (Bank Job works well).

Soon as you start the Heist kill all the Civilians and Security Guards and wait for The Police to arrive.
Let the SWAT guys group together (3 or more) and take a shot. If you only killed 2... well, try again wink

You don’t have to finish the Heist for the Achievement to unlock.

Hope it helps toast


I just noticed that you can also use some of the other Shotguns... most of them facepalm
Primary Shotguns: Raven, Steakout, Breaker, IZHMA, M1014, Reinfeld 880, Predator 12G.
Secondary Shotguns: Street Sweeper, The Judge, Goliath 12G, GSPS 12G.
(The Judge, recommend by EggplantMan69)


Looks like the Achievement and most of the new DLC's are buggy as fuck and don't unlock for many people.

PLZ use the link below and open a ticket with 505 Support toast


Looks like some people have managed to unlock the Achievement by killing STANDARD COPS, NOT ARMORED SWAT COPS... if that works for you please let me know.

Looks like Silly found a solution for the bugged Achievements and posted it in the forums.
