So far I have only really had two that really gave me fits. Graffitti.... for what ever reason I couldn't for the life me splatter someone against the wall by kicking them. I played all the way to the chapter/act where the demo played thru and then got this in my usual way. Seems like most walls don't work... and for what the bad guys make up for in stature they sure lack in the sack. I can't seem to hit a guy in the nuts with the sniper to save my ass. A few tims I have hit them directly in the crotch and all I get for it in return is a fountain of blood... ... ...from their crotch... .... ... and still no skill shot.

Anyone else with the same problems? Other skill shots seem not to work? Lets get a list going if there are more...

Graffiti works awesome you have to kick someone more than just one kick i ahve noticed grafitti is kind of boring compared to the other ones.

When it works it's great! Problem is I can beat a guy round like a hacky sack and nothing.... Just seemed like in my play thru's nothing happened more often than not no matter how far from the wall, how many kicks, or angle of approach.

As already mentioned Graffiti only works if they die from the impact of hitting the wall, so it's sorta of a guessing game of how much you need to damage them first. As for the sniper crotch shot, I had some issues myself, but after enough tries of thumping and sniping people in air I finally got it. It's sorta sad how crappy the sniper is for points though, you either need thumping or some really good skills/luck to consistently get skill shots with it =/

I actually had decent luck point wise w/ the sniper. Charged shots are fun. I think its more or less a hit detection thing...and I am taking into account the amount of recognition targets already have. Lots of fun ways to die in this game.

Lucky Shot - Kill an enemy with a cannonball that travelled over 100 metres without bouncing.

Ha yeah.... I forsee problems with that one too. Haven't messed around with echoes or anarchy yet but I can't think of somewhere that would work in the campaign.

To get Graffiti, I just kick them against a wall, then just keep kicking them till it pops up:D

Shishkebab can be a little annoying. Sometimes I clearly get 2 people on the drill with one shot and I don't get the skillshot.

How on Stygia do you get the sniper crotch shot? Every single enemy I fire at immediately runs with their leg in front, and the best I can get is a hip shot. Any tips?

Maybe if I thump him first...

Ha! Got it!

Sniper shot to the balls is easy, use the thumper (where you whip the ground) to get the enemy in the air then just zoom in and shoot, easy peasy.

I get a lot of headshots that fail to register! I can't seem to hit them in the balls or trip wire them when I try for it, always seems to happen on accident:/

You know i would think that 10 headshots on echos or campaigne for a trophy would be easy but i just not happening before the 1st dropbox, :D i must be a weak gamer, but any advice on a weapon or enviorment would be liked

You have to do it in the prologue. The very first part in the campaign.

I was having SUCH trouble with this until I read a post about it.

First, it's not nearly as far as you think it is. Second, just tap the button(RT) to fire off the cannon, don't hold it. You should fire with the site about 3/4 up your screen. If it hits someone you'll get it. Once I read what to do i literally got three different Lucky Shots in a row. Just find a group of enemies where you are elevated a bit (like up on stairs). I believe the easiest spot for me was Chapter 7, act 1 when the enemies are fighting each other. There's a few spots to easily get it in there.

Good luck!!

What I did was just leash someone, kick them back and then shoot them. This way their crotch is facing you and they can't move. It took some trial and error though. I also rarely hit a guy in the balls with the PMC to get a mercy, must be a very small and particular hit zone.

Kick a Nom parasite on their head, then shoot them in the crotch - they can't dodge when the parasite is on their head.

Lucky Shot - Kill an enemy with a cannonball that travelled over 100 metres without bouncing.

I believe I got it at the beginning of Act 5 - burnout paradise. First you fight some burnouts outside, then you enter a building and fight a bunch of them inside. Then there is a section where a gate opens and you leave the room and get to this long walkway. Burnouts start running from a far away, try shooting up high and if you manage to adjust the arc you should get the skillshot.
