    This is really easy, but just to make sure people don't miss it I’ll spell it out. *Almost slight spoiler*

    You get a slowmo scene here when you find Castro in his bed room with a lady friend. He'll use her as a shield, but even on Veteran the slowmo makes it easy enough to get the head shot on your first try. You'll know you did it right when you get a "bullet cam" that follows the bullet right into Castros head. *BOOM! Headshot!*

    Edit: Hey thanks to LionSquirrel02 it's confirmed that you need to get it on the first shot. So when the slo-mo starts make sure to go strait for the head and don't dilly dally. Awesome work LionSquirrel02!

    AccelerettoIt's actually possible to miss, when I went back on Veteran I missed, what a piss-poor shot :')

    Oni no TenshuI can confirm that you can shoot his body shield and then shoot him in the head and the achievement will pop.
    That's what happened with me anyways.

    To sum up what i did exactly:
    1. Shoot the body shield in the gut.
    2. Look through sights.
    3. Shoot Castro in the head with a slomo bullet.
    Also I did all this on veteran difficulty.

    As shown in the video below, start the first mission. About halfway through you look from room to room to find "Castro". You won't find him in the first slo-mo breach you do, but the second one you find him with a girl. He uses the girl as a shield so just take your time and aim straight for his head. You should see a slow shot of the bullet hit his head and when he dies you will get the achievement.

    Spiderbite from NextGenTactics walks through and tells you how and where to get this achievement. It is kind-of hard to miss but just in case you missed it go back and get it.

    Mission: "Operation 40"
