How long does a combat axe have to be?!?

I just got this on Mirage and it STILL didn't give me a longshot/the hail mary challenge ... seriously? Did it not unlock because it gave me a bankshot?

Could be. It may also be because the combat axe hit the ground before it hit the player. So instead of counting the distance from you to the player, it counted the distance from the ground the axe hit to the player, which was shorter. Just my guess.

My Hail Mary was KC over the map spawn tomahawk, from spawn to spawn & it was a bank shot, so the bank shots do count.

Truthfully, it needs to be REALLY far away, if you can see them, you're too close.

Thats a pretty crazy hit, it should have been a Hail Mary. I got mine on a way shorter throw than that on Hijacked and Carrier.

I got mine on Hijacked and it traveled about half the length of the boat, banked off the wall and then hit the enemey.

Why are all of you links always mobile?  Can you please link a desktop version or embed it?

Got credit for it on hijacked.  Spawned at the front of the boat ran to the right corner barrel, chucked it and caught someone coming up the short stair case that leads out of the rear spawn (the one that is next to the ladder that leads to the balcony).

This also wasn't a Hail Mary.
