This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Brutal Headhunter (PGW).

The Brutal Headhunter is a weapon found in the Sniper section of the Armory. It was added in the 4.6.0 update.


It looks similar to the Barrett M82 Anti-Material Rifle. It has a long green base, with red stripes near the end. It has an unusually long barrel with a muzzle brake at the end and a shoulder stock. On the top of the gun, there is a long and narrow scope.


The Brutal Headhunter takes two body shots to kill the target. With low armor on (no to iron-tier, tested by Admiral Phoenix), someone could be killed with a headshot.


  • Use the scope to maximize effect and attack from a long distance.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Wear the burning Tiara and sniper cape to maximize head-shot damage.


  • Get in close to an enemy using this weapon, as you will avoid taking serious damage. The cause of this is that the Brutal Headhunter has a very small crosshair meant for precision and accuracy, and also a very low fire-rate (as being a bolt-action sniper rifle). It will be very hard for the user to fire a direct shot at you, especially one-hit kill you if you move up close and move in various directions.
  • Any area damage weapons can mess the user's aim, giving you the time to finish them off.
  • Superior firerate weapons forces to lose his/her control.

Weapon Setups

Have a strong melee weapon, to attack anyone close, for this weapon is difficult to use in close combat since it is a sniper rifle.


  • Before 8.3.0. update, it had two upgrades: the Ultimate Headhunter and the Elephant Hunter. Now it has the same appearance of its first upgrade, which has been removed. The Elephant Hunter now is an independent weapon purchasable in the Armory.
  • It is based on the real world Barret M82A1 Anti-Material rifle.
  • Although the design suggests that it is semi-automatic, like its real-world counterpart, the Brutal Headhunter appears to have a manual bolt-action operation.
    • Another discrepancy is that an actual M82A1 has a 10-round magazine, while the Brutal Headhunter's magazine only has 7 rounds.
      • These are both for balancing reasons.
  • In German, it is called Brutaler Headhunter due to a translation error.
  • As of the 12.5.0 update, it was removed from the Lucky Chest.
  • In 15.1.0 Update, it's 2-3 headshots kill.
