Suddenly dead? Chances are you've been Headshot'd.

A universal indication of pwnage, a headshot remains a lulzy and popular way of expressing your dislike for someone. Originating from FPS games like Counter-Strike, the head was the target that caused the most damage. Anon, being the special kid that he is, found great lulz in the idea that this fact held true IRL.

This particular shot is a special and precious thing because the head in most cases, but definitely not in the case of Argent009, presents a smaller and hence harder target to hit than the body. To truly qualify for the "Headshot" accolade, a shot therefore needs

  1. to be to the head, and
  2. to be taken from a distance of at least one yard.
  3. ????
  4. PROFIT!

Many believe that "BOOM HEADSHOT" warcry originated from FPS Doug, co-star of the interweb show Pure Pwnage

Also good for taking care of your dumb narcoleptic dog:
