    This achievement can easily be done in a private free roam match with
    just yourself as it can be obtained by killing an NPC.
    A good place to go is the Twin Rocks gang hideout. There are two members of Walton's gang up high on rocks, so just keeping on chucking tomahawks from an estimated distance of 35 yards. Eventually one will connect and achievement unlocked.
    If you run out of tomahawks, just let yourself die.

    Stevo6483Got this last night. I overlooked the "private free roam" part and was trying for ages in the main single player campaign to no avail. As soon as I jumped to a private online session I got it straight away. Launched one at an unsuspecting schmuck standing against a lamppost down the street in Blackwater lol.

    Armstrong x360aI tried this method which resulted in me dieting repeatedly to the Walton Gang after I ran out of my first round of Tomahawks. Then I went and got it in Armadillo on the 4th try. Sorry but -1.

    This achievement can be done on any NPC, in any area of the map.

    I completed it just by spawning, equipping my tomahawk, and throwing it at a person standing outside the saloon in Armadillo. I was on the opposite side of the middle street and aimed a little above the head and threw it, and boom. Achievement unlocked.

    Credit for this video goes to Achievement Hunters/Rooster Teeth. Found this pretty hard since you have to get the shot just right and if you did get it you have to make sure you were far enough back. But patience is the key.
