Is there such thing as taking a headshot to the back of the head, say from a class D weapon? Reason: if you wanted to either take out a clicker from behind by sneaking up on it or if you are a career criminal and happen to assassinate some colonist of great importance say a lieutenant or perhaps a captain. Just asking a "what if scenario".
Question about headshots

I don't believe that there is any specific mechanic for a "one shot kill".
For consideration, headshots typically don't count against PC, as strikes to the head are outside of the rules. Because clickers wear safety masks, it's not such an issue with them. Then again, the clicker carapice is such that a headshot is NOT guaranteed to take one down, even if you somehow managed to sneak up behind one.

Headshots or even aiming your weapon at someone's head is strictly not allowed (as in actually intentionally aiming to fire a nerf dart at someone's head). If you're looking for a "killing blow" mechanism:
A finishing blow may be dealt to an incapacitated character. A character delivering a finishing
blow must lean over the target and take 5 seconds to line up a final killing strike to the chest.
This may be interrupted by taking damage or by someone tapping the weapon used in the
finishing blow out of the way.
The result of a finishing blow is handled by the app, but they are bleeding out very quickly. It
takes an extremely skilled and lucky doctor to have a chance to bring a character back after a
finishing blow, with a steep recovery time. It is the most difficult wound to successfully heal,
and will always result in a death if not treated."
Right now there's no way to ambush someone and kill them like you're describing, but remember that it only takes one shot to take out any player (most beasts on Medina will take well more than one round, however). It may not kill the player, but they can be captured and incapacitated once they are wounded and they could receive a finishing blow at that time.
