The Head Hunter is a sniper rifle with controllable bullets in Bulletstorm. If a player uses the scope, they can lock onto an enemy with the shot and control where the bullet goes. Time will slow significantly once the bullet closes in on its target, allowing the player time to adjust the shot. The Head Hunter's charge shot is an explosive round. Once a target is hit, the player can move that enemy around and then detonate the charge, killing multiple enemies in the surrounding area.
