I found an German soldier without a head on Their Land, Their Blood level. I'm fairly sure I've killed the man as I was just firing at that position. I was holding a MG42 gun that can cause dismemberment (doesn't equal to severed heads, only limbs - losing a head must be extremely rare).
This is my second playthrough of the campaign and I can't recall seeing something equivalent.

Heads constantly explode in separate zombies mode, the question is about the campaign.
PC, Steam.

  • When I played this year's ago, I don't ever recall heads being dismembered. Is this PC or console (which console if it is)?

According to a video game gore website this is possible and World at War is the only Call of Duty game having head dismemberment (WW2 featured decapitation later in 2017).

From Wikia:

On occasion, when enemy's head is blown off, the enemy will shriek in agony for a few seconds after, even without a mouth/head to scream with.

Yes, you can (gruesome)!

I've successfully reproduced this multiple times on the same level, with the same gun, on PC (also Steam version).

When I played this years ago (as I stated in my comment), it was on the Xbox 360. I'm wondering if the console versions did not have head dismemberment included. I do remember limbs being dismembered from the console version however.
