    The kill can be a headshot OR bodyshot with the DMR.
    You must be far enough that the reticle is NOT red but blue while you are zoomed in shooting your enemy and that sometimes doesn't even suffice.
    You do NOT have to get this on one of the Noble Map Pack dlc maps (but you can).
    The gametype must only be a FORM of slayer and doesn't have to be in the slayer playlist (but can be).

    |> Load up BTB and vote for big team slayer on HEMORRHAGE, PARADISO, BONEYARD or SPIRE. (Shoot from one end of the map to another on boneyard - on hemorrhage shoot from the top of the inclined hill behind the base or if you spawn at the other base use a jetpack to get up onto the top of the cliff near the coastline [yes you can get up there!] - on spire you should clearly shoot down from the top of the spire - on paradiso shoot down from the top of the rocky peak in the middle of the map)

    [[[ OR ]]]

    |> Load up the DLC playlist and vote for slayer gametypes on BREAKPOINT or TEMPEST. (If you end up on tempest go to the very edge of the map, on breakpoint stay on the top of the ridge in the middle of the map of course. The latter is where I got it while shooting an enemy behind the banshee spawn) :D

    ---||||| UPDATE |||||---
    This is not attainable in the Invasion SLAYER playlist
    This should be attainable in the S.W.A.T. playlist
    This may or may not be attainable using the TELEPORTER tactic in which you nail a kill and then quickly step through a teleporter which will take you far enough away, the idea being it records the distance after you have teleported rather than instantly as you pull off the kill [?] (please confirm)
    Thanks go to 'jtusa425', 'Kol Kavs' and 'Pagemaster146' for the developments.
    So; if you're having trouble with my prior suggestions perhaps one of these above^ alternatives will do it for you :)

    -So you think you're far enough? You're NOT. Go FURTHER. [or try a larger map] Alternatively; jetpack as high as possible when administering the final headshot to add some crucial distance.

    -If your distance is fine but you cant pull off the shots fast enough to get the kill try a sniper bodyshot quickly followed up by a DMR headshot as shown in the video below =)

    Hope this helps
    Happy Gaming!

    EthigyIt seems this doesn’t work on DLC maps, oddly enough. Your best bet is to attempt this on a base-game map. Rumble Pit and SWAT game modes work well.

    Doesn't matter what map you try this on. the only requirement is that your reticule isn't RED when you shoot them, it must be GRAY. this includes when you are zoomed in. It took me a few tries but I got it in a BTS on Tempest. I ran all the way to the far wall in the center of the map, by the river, and i shot a guy and killed him and it popped.

    I tried it on other matches but maybe the ranges was still not far enough.

    My Advice: Don't do it on Anchor 9. I wasted way too much time there.

    FiscalCliff2013Just now, I was on Pinnacle on one side of the map (the side with the one little ramp up to a pedastal where people often snipe); I used a sniper rifle to take out the shield of an opponent at the tower on the opposite side of the map, then whipped out my DMR to finish him off. The reticle was DEFINITELY not red, and the achievement did not pop.

    This was on Arena, but I was able to get two of the other DLC achievements (double kill from the grave and shotgun double kill) in the same game type.

    JayPsych47Just so you guys know, it seems your long range dmr doesnt have to officially finish the kill. I was shooting a warthog crossmap and the warthog drove off the edge and I got the achievement.

    This chievo can be accomplished in the SWAT playlist as long as its done on Paradiso, Assylum or Boardwalk.

    I reccomend boardwalk as that is where I was able to get it. With instant kill on a headshot, makes this easy as cake.

    Managed to first strike from across the map unlocking this. fairly easy considering the line of site of the map along with the fact that teams camp themselve on either side of the map.

    The NovacatGreat solution, worked for me on Boardwalk. Don't know what the negative votes must be for.

    Kol KavsThank you Stig. There will always be someone who likes to troll the negativity.
