    Not every game has one, some games have more than one.

    My fave is probably No Good Gofers "Hole in 1 shot" but I still have a soft spot for SF2's 2 part skill shot. Timing the launch and then "use the flipper to hit the bracelet target" . Probably the only time those 2 games are mentioned in the same sentence in a positive light.

    Are there any really cool or unique ones that we should all know about?

    The new Game Of Thrones code for the Pre/LE has an upper playfield skill shot that's cool...
    - Full Plunge to diverter -> ball is sent to the upper playfield
    - The castle loop will flash (upper left corner), and you need to hit it before it times out
    ---- awards an advance toward Castle Multiball (4 advances starts Castle MB)

    I also really like the skill shot on RBION - such a small sweet spot, with a valuable reward to match the difficulty.

    Congo/Iron Maiden plunge to the left outlane is one of my favorites

    Fireball Classic. Make them and you probably win the game.

    I scrolled though a few pages of all pinball, didnt think to look for an opinion on neat skillshots in the skills section. You didn't post your fave shot in either thread but I am curious what it is!

    Mind if I start another one about pinball as an investment?

    Dirty Harry ULTRA RICOCHET!!!! 2 consecutive right ramp shots followed by a left loop and then a left ramp to the left loop again. Guess what ULTRA RICOCHET.

    I really liked the option of 4 different skill shots on JJP's the Hobbit. All were challenging and there was a definite risk/reward for points there.

    I like all the hidden ones too , like the launch down the left drain in Maiden, stuff like that. That dirty harry shot sounds amazing.
