* ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}''. Oh, so very much.[[note]] This is actually the game FPS Doug was playing, making it the indirect Trope Namer.[[/note]] Indeed, the ''thwack!'' sound effect and special icon were firsts for FPS games, making this the TropeCodifier in some respects.

** Fallout 4 has one of the most unintentionally ludicrous examples of this trope. The companion perk ''Killshot'' was supposed to increase the VATS accuracy of a headshot by 20%. However, due to a typo, it was increased by '''2000%''', making it almost impossible to ''not'' get a headshot, and essentially turning the player into [[Film/JohnWick John Wick.]]

** Strangely, despite being able to take multiple bullets to the face, anytime an enemy was killed by an attack directed at its head, their noggin would graphically blow it up, complete with a nauseating splatting sound and chunks off head laying on the ground (strangely, this often doesn't kill them instantly). This includes everything from .50 magnum shots to 9mm bullets to the female PC elbowing them in the face.

** Characters with firearms training occasionally double tap their target if they can get away with it. The most impressive headshot in the series, however, was in ''Small Favor'', when Kincaid dropped ''two'' Denarians with ''one'' shot, through their heads.

* The first ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' game had a way of naming the different places where you shoot someone the most (for instance, if you shot the Nazis in the arm the most in a level, one of the titles you could receive would be winger) so if you shot them in the head a lot, you'd get titles like melon popper, cap shooter, helmet plunker, etc.
** A shot to the center mass could also OneHitKill enemies, especially with higher-power weapons.
