where should i aim for with the riot gear guys?

i have killed a few, im right at the end of the game, but it seems more chance than skill, sometimes they die sometimes i run out of ammo shooting at their head, am i missing something?

aim wherever the white dot turns red, if you're aiming where the dot is still white, you're doing it wrong.

Shooting at their head is pretty much the guaranteed way of killing any and all enemies.

yeah riddlebox i have done that, shooting at the red part, sometimes it's like a one hit kill other times i unload 5 clips and it does nothing, seems random to me

what you're meant to do is wait for the guy to reload, then immediately go into bullet-time and shoot his head. Take like half a clip but he'll go down.

In the sack between the legs ;) basically anywhere they are exposed but you also knock the helmets off when shooting them

I do pretty well by aiming at their legs and then moving up as I'm firing; this usually hits all the vital spots.

Bullet time plus THREE bullets to the head...
Some may never live, but the crazy never die

I aim for the groin late game 'cause it seems like most body armor doesn't cover that part.

Personally, I'd focus my armor there if it were me though.

Just go into bullet time and aim for the head. Once the helmet flies off, you have them.
