Mercy comes from the barrel of a gun, the warm kiss of iron that ends the misery of the wounded.

This maneuver has two uses: first, it can be used to enhance attacks made executioner-style, at close range. For one round, any firearm or ray weapon attack you make against an opponent within 30 ft. of you deals an additional 1d6 damage, +1/initiator level. If they are within 10 ft., the attack instead deals an additional 2d6 damage, +1/initiator level.

Alternatively, this maneuver can be used to rapidly dispatch a fallen foe. As part of this maneuver, you may make a coup de grace attack with a firearm or ray weapon against any opponent who is helpless and within the first range increment of the gun you are attacking with. Delivering a coup de grace with this maneuver does not provoke an attack of opportunity.
