How Is Headshot Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out massive amounts of damage. It is also used to disable enemy horn cards, as well as limit their choices and the amount of damage they deal.

It’s especially useful against Beasts, Mechs, and Bugs because of their natural disadvantage against Birds.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Headshot?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. There is also a type of Axie that uses this card alongside with Spicy Surprise to disable enemy cards called the Disablo/Disablesaur.

They are usually Dusk-class Axies with Chomp, Headshot, Vine Dagger, and Spicy Surprise in their arsenal for maximum disables and tankiness.
