It says in one of the help messages in the loading screen that you get a time bonus for performing a "counter coup de grace". Does anyone know what exactly that is? Is it doing a counter move in melee that drops the opponent and then using a finisher on top of it?
I also thought a coup de grace was a move like stomping on the enemies head while they were down or smashing their face with a gun butt. A coup de grace in a traditional sense is a killing blow used to kill a wounded or dying enemy/animal/etc. If an arm stun + melee = coup de grace and the ground stomp to the face doesn't, that is really weird, but I'm not doubting it if you say you have tested it out.
