Pass the Buck

30 Points/Silver Trophy

Get a sniped ricochet headshot

To get this achievement/trophy you need to bounce a bullet off a wall or the floor and have it smack into an enemy's head. The easiest way to do this is to try and bounce a bullet off the ground by shooting several feet in front of an enemy and try to get the distance correct so the deflection hits. There are several places throughout the game where there are many enemies to try and get it, but the hallway in the Karlshorst Command Post underground is a great place. There are a ton of enemies in a small area and a checkpoint right there in case you run out of bullets or bodies.
