The Left 4 Heads achievement is to behead 4 people in 10 seconds. Which of the demo melee weapons count as beheading as per the achievement?

I know that obviously the Eyelander will, since it debuted with the achievement in the first place, but what about the new swords since? The axes?

All weapons that can decapitate will work with the achievement, including those which do not buff you based on how many heads you've taken in a life. That means all these:

  • Eyelander
  • Scotsman's Skullcutter
  • Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker
  • Claidheamh Mòr
  • Half-Zatoichi

It does make things easier if you equip weapons that help you run faster, like the Eyelander or the HHHH. I wouldn't use the Skullcutter for it.

Obviously, you have to be a Demoman to get the achievement using the Half-Zatoichi; it won't count if you're a Soldier.

The Headtaker is the exact same weapon as the Eyelander. – user56 May 17 '11 at 6:33
@Arda Xi: Except without the taunt, sadly :( – BoltClock May 17 '11 at 6:34
@TheAnnoyingPyro The taunt doesn't really work for an axe though. – user56 May 17 '11 at 6:39
Ironically, I got this achievement today without even trying, using the (relatively) generic Eyelander. Yay for Degroot Keep? – Raven Dreamer May 17 '11 at 19:51
For future reference, the Persian Persuader also decapitates enemies. – Someguy112161 May 11 '15 at 21:17

From the Obtaining Demoman Achievements page on the official TF2 wiki:

Left 4 Heads

Decapitate 4 players with only 10 seconds between each kill.

Difficulty: Hard
How to obtain: Equip the Eyelander, Scotsman's Skullcutter, Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker, Claidheamh Mòr, or Half-Zatoichi and engage multiple enemies at close range. Pair your melee weapon with the Chargin’ Targe in order to reach new targets before the ten seconds expire.

Care to expand? A link to the main page of the wiki is hardly qualitative. – Raven Dreamer May 17 '11 at 6:41
