Michael Corneal shot 8 times and hit 8 times. Five of them head shots. Yet the boy had never shot a real firearm in his life (except, IIRC, a few hours of training).

But he was a master at video game. He shot only once at each target. Which, he says, is highly weird from a debutant.

In the FPS videogame he was playing, players were rewarded for headshots.

Also, did his video game experience include a recoil simulator? Or a built in Adrenaline pump?

Because actually killing someone with a gun involves both. And it’s hard to train realistically without a big dose of both.
