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.
