*This definition applies to Counter Strike*
The act of stabbing your opponent in the face causing instant death to normal enemies, and in very rare cases, inflicting over 700 damage. This maneuver is indisputably the greatest demonstration of one's knifing prowess and overall leetness. A knife headshot also serves as one of the most humiliating deaths that a player may experience while playing CS.
How to execute the knife headshot:
(Required materials - Knife, mouse, and balls of steel)
1. Get your knife out and approach the enemy. The easiest way to set yourself for this maneuver is for your target to agree to a knife duel. This, however, reduces the epic value of the knife headshot. Some other methods of setting up for a KHS is flashing the enemy, the enemy running out of bullets, or if its really dark and you just happen to have NV goggles.
2. As you are about to make contact with the enemy, pitch your aim slightly upwards so that your knife will strike the face. (Note: The cross hair is not always an exact indication of where you will hit your enemy so knife headshots are almost never predicable unless one's extremely skilled with a knife)
3. If performed correctly, the knife should connect with the head and if the victim is wearing a helmet, then yellow sparks may appear along with a burst of crimson liquid.
It is also worth mentioning that in some zombie mod servers, the ones with super fast zombies, knife headshots are much easier to pull off as zombies, probably due to their speed.
Player1: "That stupid noob was spraying me with an AK and ran out of ammo so I ran up to him and got a knife headshot!"
Player2: "Fuckin pwned!!1!"
