"Execute 20 People"

So I have a good percentage of this game done already (94%) but I have no idea at all on how to Execute 20 people for the Savvy Merchant outfit. How do you perform an execution?

Go up to a person with your gun out and press RT. You might do an execution this way.

I think executing a person is when you're close enough to them to trigger the auto animation, making John shoot them close up or slice their throat. I'm surprised you're almost through the game and haven't gotten 20 though. I usually performed them by mistake. (An example of an execution animation is when a quick cutscene plays when John puts his rifle underneath a guy's chin and blasts a hole through his head.)

Ah, ok, thanks. And yeah, I'm not really upclose in this game, I find it better to blast people with a Mauser from a distance and not risk dying.

No problem, oh and for a way of getting the executions easily, other then shooting at close range and hoping to trigger it, is to lasso people up and knife them. All you have to do is crouch down by them and use your knife command. I think that auto triggers the slicing throat execution every time.

Man I was beginning to think I was the only one who wasn't sure how to "execute" someone. I thought it might be the animation thing but couldn't find confirmation on that online.

Another way that works well is to walk around Casa Madrugada with the Throwing Knives out and walk up to someone from behind and push RT without aiming. No Rebels or Army in Casa Madrugada, so you shouldn't get in trouble with the law either. Hope this helps.
What's a Kraken gonna do to you?
Somehow through the trials of the day/I come out on the other side with the chance to say/ hey baby, are you doing okay?

Another way is to hogtie a person, crouch next to them with the hunting knife, then just tap the RT. That counts as an execution as well.

Shoot them in both knees, once each, with the Cattleman Revolver. Walk forward as they are getting up, hit RT with your weapon of choice out and witness the most gruesome execution animation, IMO. Also works from behind.
Wake me up before ya go go! :D
