The character can choose shoot into melee combat without the risk of accidentally shooting allies or friends. For each ally that is in close proximity of the intended target (within 3 yards) the character suffers a -10 AV penalty to the shot. The benefit is that even if the character misses the target, there is absolutely no chance that he will accidentally strike one of his allies, even if he critically fails.

This HC does not apply to situations where the character is shooting at a target that is grappling with an ally or in hostage situations. Refer to the Sharpshooter HC for that situation.
