One Shot Downs

17 replies 618 views Edited Sep 24, 2013

Which weapons can give you a one shot down? 

 

I've experienced this on the receiving end, but am not 100% sure what weapon they are using to take me down in one shot.

Hunting Rifle, but only if they headshot you.

Shotgun from close range as well.

Headshot from Hunting Rifle, Bow and El Diablo down instantly (without armor).

Headshot from Military Sniper executes instantly (without armor).

A close range blast from Shotgun downs instanly (even with armor, if you hit legs instead of torso).

Close proximity to a Nail Bomb explosion downs instanlty (variable depending on armor and distance from explosion).

Close proximity to a Molotov blast executes instantly (variable depending on armor and distance from blast).

Shiv from behind, or after getting stunned by a Smoke Bomb executes instantly.

Upgraded 2x4 (wooden stick) downs instantly upon melee hit.

If you manage to land a whole burst from the Burst Rifle to opponents head it downs him on the second shot and executes on the third (no armor). Since it also requires one press of R1, I thought it deserves mentioning.

The shotgun and bow can also potentially down you in one shot, and the burst rifle can potentially down you in one burst.

 

EDIT:  I think Sentiel covered everything.

I'm not sure about the Japanese part. lol.
I sure don't do that. Smiley Happy

I was instantly executed by bow last night.  I wasn't wearing any armor and I think it was a headshot.  Some people have the amazing ability!!

@earodynamic It's probably just lag. Or being hit by 2 opponents simultaneously. But seriously, the Japanese are the new Mexican Smiley Very Happy (Uncharted 3 players know what I mean)
