    The only way I can think is to make a very small/compact/simple trap to capture them. Then count 50 blocks and do your best.

    Thanks, I'll definitely give it a shot along with the other plan given to me.

    I think this achievement doesn't work. I also use a NPC guard tower to shot from and built a target post exactly 50 blocks away. I determined that I have to aim 7 blocks above the target at this distance.
    I killed 3 skeletons at the post and the loot of the third one lay clearly far beyond the 50 meter mark. But still didn't get the achievement. And yes, I do have the Monster Hunter achievement.

    Well now we know we are not the only ones having this problem, sounds like a bug and I just found the link in my phone that leads to the bug list page that mentions the "Sniper Duel" achievement. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Talk:Known_bugs/Version_1.8

    If you make a large tower with a hollow inside and you stand on top at sky level, you could shoot a skeleton easily. I don't think the skeleton has to be firing back because the only way a skeleton will fire at you is if you are 16 blocks away and plus, that would take the entire sniper bit out.

    That's true, thanks for the blueprints too. I'll test this out and see if I have any luck, Thanks!

    How far is 50 meters in-game anyway? I've sniped some skeletons almost to the maximum distance, and still no achievable... :dry.gif:

    Same here, I'm sniping them from so far away that I'll have to take the Coriolis effect in to account if I go back any further lol. I guess I'll have to think of a mob trap that I can use to test this achievement.

    1.) Did you unlock the achievements before this one? You can't get cow tipper with out making a wooden sword first. It's like a flow chart you must unlock the ones before that one.

    Yes, I currently have all achievements except "On a rail" and "Sniper Duel".

    I've been trying for days and still no luck. My method is sitting on top of an NPC guard tower at night and killing skeleton archers. My rendering distance is set to far and the skeletons I kill are far enough out that they bob in and out of the range of site and yet I still don't get the achievement. Is this a glitch or does the skeleton have to be firing back indicating the "duel" part of the name "Sniper Duel", Thanks
