Let me start by saying that I'm not new to Gears in any way. However, in Gears 1 I avoided Execution at all costs. Due to Gears 2 matchmaking system though, I;ve obviously played it a lot, but I still need some stuff cleared up.

Firstly, I've been using the Lancer in Execution for the chainsaw and the Hammerburst in game types with standard rules. However, I was playing a private match against bots and noticed that with the Hammerburst, I could kill downed players even with Execution rules.

This came up to me because in a recent Execution game on Blood Drive, I downed a player from across the map with the Lancer. Since I have never killed a downed player with the Lancer, I switched to the pistol and shot him in the face while he was down. I didn't think you could do that with a Hammerburst, so it's gotten me a little confused.

I tried head shotting downed bots with the Hammerburst from literally point blank range, but I couldn't get a single head shot on anyone. However, I was able to simply kill downed players with the Hammerburst just by shooting in the general direction of their heads.

So this makes me wonder... is the Hammerburst really useful in Execution? Even at point blank range I can't kill players with the Lancer when they're down, but the Hammerburst and pistol seem to work fine. Do you need to be shooting towards their head with the Hammerburst to kill them when they're down?

And another question I have about Execution... if a player is downed three times, do they instantly die? I think I've seen it happen but I've never actually done it to anyone myself in Gears 1 or Gears 2, so I'm a little unsure.

If anyone could clear this up for me, that would be great.

If I had to guess, it is because the hammerburst and pistols are capable of headshots, while the lancer is unable to do headshots. I think headshots to a downed player in execution finish them off, but I have never been in that situation before so I can't say for absolute certain.

Yes, that's true
