I'm wondering how you do those executions where Sam holds onto one guy sort of like a human shield, then executes your marked targets, and then finally executes the guy you're holding? They did it a lot in the gameplay trailers? Do you have to be in motion? How is that done?

thanks for your help :)

So I've been playing for a bit now, and I figured out that you just need to press Y while close to a hostile to grab him while executing... But can you seriously not do a cool looking execution like the three shots (two to th stomach, one in the head) like in the trailer? Can someone please shed some light on this small detail? Cool looking finishers like that was the reason I picked this game up..... Was it seriously only for the trailer?
