Pass the Buck

Get a sniped ricochet headshot  

Go to the level Karlshorst Command Post and just after you destroy the tank and kill the enemies in front of the building you will come to a hallway. Follow the video and you will get this achievement easily. It seems to be the easiest and quickest way in the game to get it.

I got this without even trying as well. I was sniping on Overwatch online and it popped up. Lucky me I guess.

Same as the rest...I got it by accident. The bullet seemed to bounce off his rifle and through his head.

I did this on Schoneberg Convoy at the end after you stop the convoy. After the tank that comes on the left, enemies will come that way also and usually the stop behind a car which makes a perfect angle to headshot them.

when they stand up to fire, shoot at the hood of the car and the angle you are at being so high up should shoot it up to their head.

There maybe easier ways but this worked for me, and I really wish they had instant replay in this game.

satisfying but not nearly as much as a testicle shot that shoulda been an achievement

Really easy achievement, use the floor not walls, face an enemy standing, shoot the floor in the middle with rifle, done!

This video isn't the best way to get it. Watch the following video. I tuned to it and it worked like a charm.

I have no idea how but it happened during the first mission without even trying to get it.

I played Mittelwerk Facility. Snipe the guy in the first tower. This will alert everyone, but since they can't see you they just stand still. Climb the tower and zoom in on the guy next to the guard shack (he's crouching now) shoot the ground in front of him. Achievement.

So uh, I got this without trying. Last mission. Sniped Wolff. Tried to get a headshot, but I guess a hit the truck, and boom - cutscene goes, suddenly achievement pops, and I was like "How did I manage that?"

So I guess, that's possible. I have no idea how easy to replicate that would be, but it's definitely worth noting.

@16. Works like a charm. Missed the first three shots to test and still works after target crouches.

Sucks that I got this by chance. The freakin' bullet ricocheted off of the soldier's own helmet.
