A headshot is the act of shooting an opponent in the head in-game, usually resulting in increased damage or an instant kill.

The ability to do a "headshot" was developed in 3D shooters, including light gun shooters, survival horror games, and first-person shooters, when it became possible to aim at specific body parts. It exists in most modern FPS games.
