    Buy at any weapon shop you want the 'AR-CL' sniper rifle with the 'Marksman ADV-X Scope'. The range with this scope is 8 of 10. If you have the gold edition from the game equip 'MBP .50' with 'Long Range Scope'. With this combination the Range is on 10/10.

    Go to any outpost / location where are enemies located and set a marker to see the distance. (You need 150 meters). Mark an enemy and proof the distance again. Aim directly on the head and shot. If you miss the shot fast travel to a nearby location and come back.

    Gendral IIFWIW, I got this while in a helicopter shooting enemies on the ground during the "Friendly Skies" mission, so apparently vehicle weapons are exempt from the bows or rifles description.

    FTW1884MJI got this at the lumber mill rescuing Jess. If you come in from the research lab side, the doctor who wants you to catch a live judge, you can go through the trees and get to a nice vantage point in the hill. I got this achievement plus the 4 perk point challenge for distance kills here.

    I found the best place to obtain this was behind the Lamb of God Church in, the building furthest West in John’s region. As a lot of the outposts didn’t provide a good lookout point over the enemy camp.

    After you have done the mission for Grace, there will be a side mission from a woman to the right of the church. Accept this and you will need to clear out enemies down by the river. Follow the path to the left of the Church and go right through the trees instead of down the steps and you will come upto a cliff edge with a perfect view of at least 5 enemies, around 170 metres away.

    I used the MPB.50 with the enhanced scope and got it first time here after a few failed attempts at outposts.

    Hope this helps.

    CerberustormMethod is simply perfect once you've located the edge and not get mauled by a bear. Thumbs up!

    doodleb3gsJust want to confirm this works - like a few others mine had glitched at 94%...and various other attempts didn't work plus I had already done most outposts. Just now I reset outposts and went straight to this spot and it popped. I heard some are having issues from using the special golden Mp50 so I bought and used the standard version with a scope. Job done.
