Battlefield 3 headshot: Amazing or lucky? We can't even see the guy...

It never ceases to amaze me just how good gamers can get at their favourite pastime. Take, for instance, this Battlefield 3 player. He scores a headshot from almost a mile away. Sure, YouTube resolution is fuzzier than an actual game, but even at 1080p, we can't even see the guy he's aiming for, let alone pick out his head. Check it out:

Like an accidental wondergoal, of course he's claiming 'played for and got', saying in the description "It's all about range finding, firing 1 shot at the beginning of holding your breath so that you can watch where it lands on your scope then adjust accordingly." Without wanting to sound like Bill & Ted (or, indeed, a Prinny), I totally believe you, dude!

Still, credit where credit's due. A YouTube clip of this quality is definitely worth losing your team game of Conquest for. Let's just hope his teammates don't see this clip...
