Disambig icon.png This article is about PvP finishing moves. For the combo finishers, see combo.

In WvW, PvP, and sometimes PvE, you may have to finish off your enemy with a special move. Press F near a downed enemy to use a finisher. You can set your active finisher in the Finishers page on the Hero Panel.

A finisher is an action in PvP play that is used to finish an opponent while they are in a downed state. This will immediately put the enemy in a defeated state regardless of their health while downed. When near a downed enemy, the message F "FINISH THEM!!" is displayed. Interacting begins an action similar to a channelled skill which takes 3.5 seconds to execute. Moving or being disabled will interrupt this action, but taking damage will not. The finishing activation can't be reduced with quickness.

Finisher appearances are gained as rewards based upon your PvP Rank animal, as tournament rewards, by chance from Black Lion Chests, or through appropriately-themed special events such as Wintersday. Which finisher is displayed can be changed for aesthetic purposes through the Finishers tab in the hero panel. The Randomize Finisher option randomly chooses from any unlocked finisher. Limited-use finishers consume a use for each successful use of the finisher on a downed enemy.
