Bolt From the Blue

Killed 5 enemies with a headshot while riding a Sky-Line.  

Riding on a Sky-Line, you will have to slow yourself down by pressing back on the  (or in whatever opposite direction you are facing). Using the Sniper or Carbine is best for headshots. Upgrading their damage will make this even easier.

Use this in combination with the sniper rifle and you should have it in no time. a great spot for this is chapter 24: bullyard destroy the turrets then get your headshots, re-checkpoint if necessary.

You know this is going to hard when you only have to kill 5 for 25g.

eh. they'll find good spots in the game to do this. probably just resetting the same checkpoint over and over again. i like precision achievements. more satisfying. i'll take this over collectable achievements any day.

Location: Chapter 5 - Monument Island Gateway

You can get this achievement when you can use Sky-Line For the first time
As you see the enemy will appear on your left just shot on his head
Repeat the process 5 times and you will get the achievement.

Remember to hold down on LS to slow yourself to a more-or-less stop.

Yeah. This was wayyyy easier than i thought it would be. You can basically come to a complete stop by slowing yourself on the rail.

There's also a piece of Gear you get after a while that makes your shots from the rails more accurate.

Just got all 5 in the same spot shortly after getting Shock Jockey. If you see the tearable (you'll know what this means) Robot George Washington, then your next sky-line ride will be the spot I am talking about. Just stay on the line, slow waaay down, and the far away enemies are super easy pickings.

Easy place is after the hall of heroes, you have to find the gondola to take to the first lady. well after you initially attach to the skyline, just go into the ones blocking your path and wait for at least 5 policeman to come at you on the skyline and aim for their heads.

The easiest place for this is returning to shantytown after "retrieving" the gunsmith's tools, when you hop on the skylines below the destroyed giant turrets. The Founder soldiers will continually spawn in until you advance too far, so just stay on the skylines and pick them off with whatever you want.

I got this easily on the Engineering Deck section. Once you take out the Handy Man there is a skyline that goes around the centre of the deck that you can just stay on and then use LS to slow to almost a stop and then there are more than enough enemies to take out.

This is pretty easy. Just hop on a skyline and the soliders will follow you turn around and shoot them point blank in the head while on the skyline.

A good spot to do this achievement is on the last level. The Hand of the Prophet has a large open area at the back where enemies travel through to get to the core like thing. There is a skyline that is in the perfect spot to headshot them with, I got all five with a fully upgraded carbine and just slowed down to shoot them in the head. Quite simple, sounded hard to me until I remembered I could slow down on the skyline. :P
