|Score a headshot on any enemy using Expert targeting mode.|
This isn't as difficult as it sounds. There are three difficulty settings, one of them being Expert. Using the Expert difficult you will need to manually aim at all your targets without aid from the auto aim system. Just take your time on this difficulty and carefully aim for the head.

Whats the difference between expert and casual targeting mode?
|Comment #2 by hockeyjosh12|

expert mode doesn't let you lock on, while casual locks on to the target. but its an easy achievment. just go into dead eye.

Not sure what makes it expert targeting apart from... the targeting I've been using. I've shot heads in dead eye, with every weapon, everything, but it won't unlock.

took me one shot. in a battle change from normal (or casual) to expert aim [PAUSE, OPTIONS, CONFIG] then aim at a guys head (shouldn't be too hard). DONT USE DEAD EYE.(i dont know if you can though) Once you unlock just go back to normal.

you need to go to options and then config to change targeting mode to expert.
I got the achievement by tying up an enemy and then shoot him in the head, just went in to town and tied up a gang-member and then shot him

So I am assuming that this can be done in single player.

Yes, it can be done in single player. I did it in Armadillo on someone dragging a lady behind their horse. It's the easiest achievement ever. Just pause the game, go into options, then game options, and toggle the targeting mode to Expert. Unpause, go into Dead Eye, aim at someone's head and fire...achievement unlocked. Then you can immediately go back to Normal targeting.

Make sure you change the single player targeting to expert, cuz I believe theres 2 options. You're using the right option if you can not lock on to enemies

Did this on my first shot. No tricks, nothing fancy. Maybe I just got lucky. Who knows?

You can definitely do this with Red Eye, I just did. Open up options, make sure your targeting mode is set to expert (not casual or normal), then just aim at someone's head and blammo. The description said "enemy", which I took to mean a red dot. But it doesn't have to be. I rode after a horse thief and took him out with my rifle via Dead Eye to get it.

Very easy just put it on expert and go to thieves landing to shoot someone in the head, it will bring no wanted level and unlock achievement
|Comment #16 by TomTomTM|
Thursday, December 23, 2010 @ 06:00:07 AM
I did it without dead eye, i just went to an area where i wanted poster led me and then when the gang didn't notice me i walked up to on eof them and shot them in the face, easy 5g haha

From what I hear it only unlocks in SINGLE player. Can anyone confirm. I've been
trying in multiplayer and its just not unlocking.

Does it have to be in single player or public free roam?

I got this yesterday with a woman flagging me down, ambush. Just changed targeting to expert, then nailed her and it popped.

Also, I did this during normal story line play. So, yes, single palyer works.

i got this by fluke. you can do it on the campaign. i did it with a machine gun about five seconds after i changed the targeting mode lol

Couldn't be easier. Just approach a gang hideout. Before they notice you, go to options, switch to expert targeting mode in the options menu, dead eye a head shot on a gang member.
When they're on to you, switch back if you need/want to.

I got this totally by fluke by duelling with someone. Duelling is no more difficult in expert mode (as far as I can tell) so if you are in expert mode when someone challenges you, it should pop no problem... unless you're a bit rubbish at duelling...!

I hogtied a guy in the mine, switched to expert in menu, stood over top of him and shot right in the face ;-) . it popped on first try. no glitches here
|Comment #33 by CourtesyFlush82|
Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 05:00:11 PM
Yea, just make sure you change you setting from Casual to Expert then you'll get it.
|Comment #34 by a girl in a box|
Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 11:41:33 PM
i didn't have to do anything. just headshot a random guy as soon as i got dead eye and it popped. my game apparently started default on expert cuz i never changed anything.

Just use dead eye on a normal civilian!
|Comment #36 by Mahogz|

This one is pretty easy, I did it when doing a gang hideout in West Elizabeth. Ran upto a enemy hiding behind boxes, switched the options for expert targetting mode and went into dead eye.
|Comment #37 by This M4chine|
Saturday, August 20, 2011 @ 04:48:13 AM
This isn't difficult at all. Turn on expert (which should be on anyway, Jesus) and aim for the head. It baffles me that people need to use dead eye or turn on casual, lock on, and then switch to hardcore. They made this achievement worth so little because it is easy as hell. What is wrong with the world?
|Comment #38 by Apple2Forever|
Thursday, August 25, 2011 @ 02:52:04 PM
Pretty easy, but it seems that it definitely has to be an enemy. I tried shooting random people at MacFarlane's ranch in the head and it didn't work.
|Comment #39 by FLUFFHEADDD|
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 07:49:23 PM
done in single player. Easiest thing in the world. Make sure you're in expert mode in the options menu. Achievement popped up right away when i shot an enemy in the head.

i tried this one on single player i shot a civilian so i get a wanted level, then i shot all the caps that came after me in the head. i had expert targeting enabled as well but didnt get the achievement. do cops count as enemies? or should i try this in a combat mission?
|Comment #46 by WolfangAukang|
Thursday, January 31, 2013 @ 09:43:50 AM
I recommend doing this in Undead Nightmare, just to be sure you killed him in the head. Change in options/config/targeting mode to expert, use Dead Eye and voalà
|Comment #47 by EternalWolf|
Sunday, February 03, 2013 @ 06:26:42 AM
Start, Options, Config.
You can figure the rest out from there, it's really not that hard :).
