A head shot is the act of shooting an enemy in the head. This is much more powerful and dangerous than a regular shot.
A head shot, though a basic move, is sometimes hard to pull off. The player must carefully aim at the target. If noticed, enemies will shoot back, making it harder. It is most often done while Sniping, but it can be done any time with any Gun, assuming the player has ammunition. Nick cannot use Mind Drain on an enemy that has received a head shot.
- Anyone with bad aim will find this move very difficult to pull off.
- The player must remain hidden, or will be shot at while trying to do a head shot.
- Head shots are hinted at in the first level, when a hint pops up saying shooting at important spots deals more damage.
