    So the super ribbon can be difficult even during a session if you don't have the right technique. After some failed attempts, we found an effective way to get this even if you suck at aiming lol. Once you get your map, find a place with a couple barriers in an L shape and have your victim continuously do backflips while your sniper stands at the other side of the barrier closely and aims at the spot on the wall where the head appears during the flips.

    The reticule will turn red every time the head goes by(obviously) and all you have to do is get the timing right and shoot. No scoping works best, and if you miss, just adjust your timing as needed. Here are a couple videos on different maps for demonstration. This was me getting them rather easily even controlling both controllers

    TalvalinI'm up for that. If you create a boosting session here in TA you should be able to get more people interested. Also well done on getting all the other achievements! I still need the 2v2 achievements which seems doomed nowadays.

    An achievement made up of 2 parts.
    1: Get the Hat Trick ribbon (headshot 3 enemies in a row in Versus) 10 times.
    2: Get The Super ribbon (headshot a rolling enemy in Versus) 2 times.

    It's possible in both unranked versus and vs. AI.
    For the "10x Hat Trick" ribbon I would definitely recommend "vs. AI" and that you fill a lobby with five people you know or with extra controllers. Let the others down the enemies and then you can headshot them.

    For the "2x The Super" ribbon it'll probably be best during a session or if you can fill out all 10 spots with people you know. Then match up in a unranked (Competitive Warmup) and try do get it there. Teamwork and timing is the key :)

    Boosting in Ranked Matches may cause your account to be flagged and banned by The Coalition.

    Maps where the Longshot can be found
    Avalanche, Blood Drive, Canals, Checkout, Clocktower, Dam, Diner, Drydock, Forge Blitz, Fuel Depot, Gridlock, Harbor, Impact, Lift, Lift Apex, Old Town, Reclaimed, Reclaimed Windflare, Speyer, War Machine

    If someone, at some point in time, can't figure out why it won't pop, i've included the specific requirements in my Trackertool at https://xbltracker.com/

    For those looking to not go the boosting method for the achievement.

    Hat Tricks are easy, go into Versus against casual bots and get it done.

    Supers are the hard one. Grab a friend. Co-op Versus AI Against Hardcore Bots. Hardcore because less randoms join in, and the bots are smarter and dive more. Have your friend throw a smoke at the bot, aim your longshot in the general direction where he will probably roll, take the shot when he rolls. This will take a few attempts and luck. Took me and my partner about 2 hours for us both to get it. I found it easier to not scope in. Here is a video of some attempts. The last 30 seconds is a successful attempt. Sorry about the audio, but you get the point. Good luck.

    Special Thanks to kliqIMB for working with me on this.
