Microsoft continues to release new Gears of War 4 gameplay clips, this latest one showcasing a brutal knife execution. In this video, we see the character Del perform a vault-kick into an enemy Swarm Drone, then slice up its face with a knife. This execution leaves a pool of blood on the ground.

This video follows a couple from earlier this week that showed off other executions, including one that depicted a move known as "Unicorn-ing," which is when you stab an enemy in the forehead with a knife.
