An Execution is a feature in Grand Theft Auto IV in which a small cutscene plays showing an execution of the person that Niko is killing. Only specific characters can be executed, at specific points in the game. As execution can be performed with a pistol, if the aiming reticule is flashing red while a pistol is equipped and auto-aimed at the target. Each character has a predetermined execution cutscene, and it makes no difference where the player aims (head, chest, leg etc.)
