The Money Shot

Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with a headshot  

Headshots are when the head of the enemy blows up and the rest of the body remains intact. You can do this with any weapon that isn't automatic or explosive, that is, the Snub Pistol, Magnum, Longshot, or Gnasher (shotgun). Blow the head off a foe that isn't already downed 100 times total in ranked matches for this achievement.

For more information, see "Seriously...".

This one can be difficult. You have to get 100 headshots with any weapon in ranked matches. Not individual shots to the head you have to make there head explode while keeping their body in one piece. So there for any weapon that blows them up will not count. If your having problems with this one, you can always boost it with some friends. Also if your going for all the achievements, make sure to not play on any of the DLC maps or annex game mode or none of your kills will count toward seriously.

#9 from what I've heard/read if you leave a match or the host ends the game
the kills you got up until the game ended will be added to the leaderboard
but not towards the achievement. Another possibility is that if you are about
to win a match and the last enemy standing quits and ends the kills don't
count either. I think that is what happened to me because I was boosting
and I got 68 headshots in one match then played another match and got 40
headshots but no achievement. I believe the best way to get the weapon
achievements is to boost in matches with at least 6 people where everyone
takes turns getting kills between each match. Set it to 19 rounds and 2 minutes.
One player on each team gets kills. You make it so that you each win every
other round allowing for more kills

If you need more kills just simply wait for a draw (hence the 2 minutes)
and keep going until you each reach 100 kills. Let one side win the match
and the achievement should pop up. It takes a LONG TIME for everyone to get
a turn but it works.
