A Headshot is used to describe any kill caused by an injury to the head.
Headshots deal a lot more damage to the victim than anywhere else on the body, such as the chest or arms. Should the attack hit the head, around 5 times the damage will be done, the enemy is usually killed instantly. (unless they have protection from Head gear or unless the weapon isn't strong enough and sometimes shot from a great distance)
When a player gets a headshot, the announcer will yell "Headshot!" and a small picture of a broken skull will briefly appear on-screen. During the Halloween season, a pumpkin replaces that skull instead.
- Shooting the Super Spy in the head will be no different from shooting him in the torso, making headshots practically useless.
