I believe the move name is rather tongue-in-cheek.

A more literal name would be, "threaten with death." But Raise Morale is funnier

How does shooting a pistol in the air a couple of times result in a massive cannon barrage?

As a wise Commissar once said: "Guardsmen if you go to battle the enemy MIGHT kill you but if you retreat I WILL kill you"

And since you are going to die both ways better then take the 5% of surviving by fighting in the battle and since human instinct is to survive that will make fight harder (( which ofc was led by you fearing the Commissar in the first place)). OFC we are speaking about WH40K since minions don't have any emotion they are just ehh mindless minions.




EDIT: For the post above me, GP's ult clearly states that he signals for his ships to start firing a cannon barrage so it is actually his ship and he only used the pistol to signal it.

It probably comes from the fact that Generals would execute any of their men that wouldn't fight, back in the World Wars (you either got out of that trench or died in it). It may have been practiced before this as well.

To me, it's implied that the executed minion isn't fighting hard enough, and is so executed. Those that watch this obviously fight harder afterwards.

If my captain randomly started shooting the group and I was a powerless minion, I'd fight hard just to encourage him not to kill me too.

Their morale is raised in amazement that Gangplank just one shot a creep at level 1 without damage items.

I think people are just tired of hearing people QQ about GP deny ability. He is not an OP champ by far so why can't you guys let it go?
