Head-shots are shots to the head. They currently only apply to Cannibals.
If a head shot is performed correctly, accounting for the mechanics of the shot and its placement, most of the time it will kill instantly.
Currently, only a majority of ranged weapons available in the game can perform head shots (as listed below):
- Crafted Bow, with any type of arrow
- Modern Bow, with any type of arrow
- Flintlock Pistol
- Weak Spear and Upgraded Spear when thrown. It is unknown if the Incendiary Spear can cause head shot damage.
Head-shots can be difficult to land, and frustrating due to losing arrows. If missed, the arrow could go over or past an entity instead of where it was intended to land. Some cannibals, such as the skinny variants, can be difficult to hit due to their crouching maneuver quite often and will tend to move around a lot.
