    UPDATE 29th of September, Ched flipped some switches and "fixed" this merit. I'm not sure what that means, but I would assume misses and reloads might break the streak.



    Assuming a maxed 26% total critical hit chance (10% from 55 merits invested in crit hit chance, 5% natural crit chance, 6% crit chance from the top-tier laser, and 5% crit chance from BIO2410) and a 8:1:1 ratio of head:throat:heart shots per critical hit. (out of every 10 crits, 8 will be on the head, 1 will be on the throat, and 1 will be on the heart... leaving you with an 80% chance per crit to get a head shot)

    26% x 80% = 20.80%.

    20.8% cubed = 0.90% chance per 3 shots that make contact (don't miss).

    To be tested further:
    - Do reloads break the streak?
    - Do misses break the streak? (Confirmed misses do not break the streak by MimeFaceKiller) This is no longer true, misses seem to break the streak as of Sep 29th.
    - Does the streak continue after you finish a target and attack a new target? (It must be in the same attack, confirmed here by Andyman and repeated by cooksie for verification)
    - Does it work on defends? (Confirmed that it does proc on defends by CapturerHulkmad)
    - Can the Rheinmetall MG3 proc the merit with Blindfire? (Confirmed YES by Swatsicle)
    - Does a throat shot indeed not count as a headshot? (Confirmed throat does not count as a headshot by cooksie)

    Please let me know if you think of others things to test or come across an attack log that takes care of one of these!

    Time to take out some NPCs!

    Thanks Ched for releasing this merit now that Elim is pretty much over and everyone is now training for next year and not attacking.

    So that means it would take roughly 330 rounds of constant hits in order to achieve the merit? :D

    It does not. I didn't achieve the merit for this attack - https://www.torn.com/loader.php?sid=attackLog&ID=64f4be6046d833280a81881a0c03c2f1

    Yeah, this one will happen when it happens. Not a lot I can do, except keep putting merits into crits and attack a lot, to make this happen.

    Cool, so looks like as long as the hits land consecutively, regardless of damage or misses/reloading in between, it will count.

    Good to know misses don't count. That answers that.

    - Does the streak continue after you finish a target and attack a new target?
    Nope. Just completed these attacks in the order I'm posting them. No merit.

    Misses between head shots do not break the streak.

    Thanks Mime and cooksie!  I've updated the OP with that new information.

    I have also verified that the 3 consecutive headshots need to be in the same attack as opposed to 3 separate attacks.
