The Most Gratuitous Headshots Video Ever

The world of gaming would be a sad, sad place indeed without the noble headshot. Ever since shooters first evolved to allow us to aim upwards, the sacred practice of skull-busting has been key to the whole experience. It's an insta-killing, ammo saving, stealth-enabling tactical wonder which saves lives, turns the tide of entire wars and provides a hell of a lot of cheap laughs along the way. Naturally, something so ingrained in the very fabric of gaming has evolved and branched out in every way imaginable over the years, honed and adapted over and over as different developers have stepped up to put their own individual spin on the most revered tool in the action gamer's arsenal.

We decided that the time was long overdue to pay tribute to the headshot, and have thus put together the most gratuitous overload of exploding crania we could fit into a single two minute video. And that video, as you have very probably already guessed, is sitting below for your viewing pleasure. Now go and press play, you filthy gore-hounds, and check out how many of these you've pulled off.

    The wet crunch sound of a head popping in Gears 2 is one of the most satisfying sounds in gaming.

    In timeshift there is a crossbow with exploding bolts. if you hit some one in the head with one. their head blows up (duh) but there limbs fly off to and leaves a pool of blood around the torso. You got to check it out some time.

    the COD4 head shot was from the mission where you have to snipe people from a cliff above. Some fan you are, not know about that
  • Jedipimp0712 - April 17, 2009 8:29 p.m.

    there were 2 games i didnt know about, other wise i have done all of those. and a lot of them were repeats, but still good. and where is the COD 4 headshot? i think, besides the gears headshot, that the COD 4 sound (TINK) is the best! especially the wall behind the guy... that is pretty sweet too!

    007 Goldeneye? What A Classic
  • killerh777 - April 11, 2009 7:27 p.m.

    I made the coolest headshot ever. I shot the guys head off then it fell down a manhole. It was awsome.
