Team members compete head to head with Kentucky Long Rifles at increasing distances. But one team is competing with a cloud over their head. In the end the two despised team members attempt the classic shot; shoot the hangman's rope.
Shooters attempt classic trick shots with three different guns; shooting behind the back with a mirror, shooting a nail into a board, and shooting a thrown object. In the elimination competitors shoot clay pigeons they throw themselves.
Shooters compete to flip targets to their competitor's color in a pistol competition. Then competitors challenge each other to a game of horse with a choice of weapon, target and distance. Finally, the top two marksmen reprise seven past challenges in a timed competition.
In the season finale, the final four contestants compete to determine the winner of the $100,000 prize and the title of Top Shot. In one of the challenges, for the first time, competitors will get to call the shots, challenge each other, and name their weapon and target. In the final challenge, two will face off in the most difficult challenge of the entire competition.
