    This achievement is very easy... first i struggled to make headshot kill with Golden Harbinger (melee weapon) but it's pretty easy after accidentally found a trick to grind. First.. you will get this weapon by killing "Gergis the Herald" during DLC mission. Just you need to equip this weapon on any slot and during combat, get headshot with bow while your health is bit low and it'll count towards the achievement. Even animals kills also counts towards progression. Get 10 headshot kills and achievement will

    UPDATE - 1 : Thanks to Basement Cheese and LLboxed

    As Basement Cheese told YOU can be at full HEALTH while hitting headshot, So no healing stuffs needed for this achievement.

    UPDATE - 2 : Thanks to JeroenRos and SweptbackFlame

    JeroenRos and SweptbackFlame added more easy ways to get headshot kills.. you can headshot civilians with the bow and it counts as kills towards achievement.
    SweptbackFlame commented that "Once you get the weapon, if you go straight to the Smoke and Fury mission, you can just headshot civilians with the bow. They count as kills. There's tons of civilians you can headshot and they don't even move."
    This method is more faster to grind kills for this achievement.

    Belly EllyFinally got it. First tried to keep on going. Got around 50 headshots that restored health, and +100 when I was on full health. Tracker didn't go up and stayed at 90%. Went back to an old save. Did a speed run through episode 1/2/3 to get the Harbinger (took 2 hrs), and got it at my 10th headshot.

    Since the achievement is buggy I went the long way to make sure that nothing was interfering so I reset all my abilities, didn't wear armour and only used the Harbinger and a regular bow to get as few boosts as possible that somehow could screw up.

    Ksar96@Belly Elly Thanks for commenting back. I don't why it didn't pop for some people I tried with my second account and got the achievement without issues. maybe you're right something is interfering with the achievement, it may be skill or armor or other weapons. so I think loading previous save is ideal option if it stuck on the tracker.

    A quick tip: Not only do enemies count towards this achievement, but random NPCs as well. You can simply kill NPCs with headshot by shooting arrows. (It's easier when you've got a whole yellow bar and hit them in the head with Predator Arrows).

    Pretty self-explainatory. Equip melee weapon Golden Harbinger which you will get by progressing through the DLC. When you have it equppied find any enemies and when they take some of your life make sure your 10x headshots will actually be lethal 10x to heal and the achievment will pop.
