That is the spec for longest headshot, yes. For some reason they don't keep the stat for longest kill. I think they should have more stats for Recon.
I know a lot of people hate snipers and think they are for noobs, but I think it is because they are just pissed off that they get taken out at a range that they wouldn't have a chance to defend themselves. Welcome to the world of gaming, and snipers. The idea is to STAY at range and kill, not to get within 50 yards of a player and shoot them from up close with a scope. lol.
See, I think there is an inherent skill at playing recon. For one you have to time your shot many times at a MOVING target that is typically 300 meters or longer away. That takes SKILL, and is not for a noob. Plus, if played CORRECTLY, the job of Recon is not just to snipe, but to spot enemies for your team. I have spent as much as 3/4 of the game time targeting enemies for my team to kill. I love watching me spot an enemy trying to sneak up to a team mate, and then watch the team mate turn around and blast him!
