Halo 3

Halo 3 Achievements

Headshot Honcho

Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a ranked free for all playlist or in campaign.

In the campaign on the mission "The Ark" you start with a sniper. You will have to kill 10 enemies without dying for this. In the first battle (the circular prison yard), keeping firing on the enemies (with headshots) until it unlocks. Some people say they had to get only headshots to unlock it, but I killed one enemy with two body shots on accident, then killed two more with headshots and it unlocked.

the campaign lvl with snipers, just aim for easy headshots (use scoring so you can see if you got the headshot). they dont have to be in a row, but im almost possitive you cant die :P

Still, they dont count. I got 62 headshot medals in campaign, 0 deaths, no chievo.

I just completed this achievement in a solo (normal) campaign in the Ark (mission). The only skull I had on was Grunt Birthday Party & no scoring (team or otherwise). I used a combination of the sniper rifle and the battle rifle on grunts, brutes, and jackals. Kills were not sequential (i.e., not 10 head shots in a row), and I died once while racking up 10 head shots.

Doesn't have to be in a row. I had headshots and normal kills mixed together and still got it.

Would a battle rifle work or does it have to be a sniper rifle?

You should do this in campaign, not online it is WAY easier.

I completed the Ark on Normal, and I had zero deaths. At the end, I reviewed post-game carnage and saw I had 73 headshots, but no achievement. Any tips?

Headshot Honcho is a Halo 3 Achievement that is awarded for scoring ten headshot kills with a Sniper Rifle or a Beam Rifle in a ranked free-for-all Matchmaking playlist or in Campaign. It may be done on any difficulty in Campaign. The Achievement is worth 5 Gamerpoints and is represented by black crosshairs with a sad face in the middle. This achievement is only obtainable through 10 headshots on Brutes or Jackals. Grunts do not count.

From Halo 3 wiki, this should help thos who have problems.

For those still trying to get this #14 statement is correct and you can do this whilst dying. Choose level 1 in heroic on rally point alpha as there are extra snipers on the trees and you can use this and then the sniper you get later to guarantee this even if you aint a good shot.
