Here are all the positions of all the Runes.

With Dishonored 2 we see the return not only of the protagonist of the first chapter, Corvo Attano, but also of the main collectibles that we already had to identify, search and recover in Dunwall: the runes. What are the runes for? Also this time they will be essential to acquire certain skills of the protagonists and enhance / improve those already in your possession.

So if the difficulty of the levels puts you in a tight spot, a good upgrade is just the thing for you. Also remember that if you really can't find the rune you are looking for during a given mission, the Black Market is around the corner waiting for you. What are we waiting for instead? Here's where to find them all.

Mission 1 - A long day in Dunwall

No rune is present in the level.

Mission 2 - Edge of the World

Here we have seven runes to find.

  • The first is at the sunken ship. Exit the cabin and go to the deck. Jump into the water and swim to the boat to find the rune.
  • You know the whale's corpse? Here it is. Follow the trail of blood and look inside his body.
  • Starting with the dead whale, proceed to a pink building, where you will notice the Black Market icon. Here you can purchase a third rune.
  • Jump into the canal next to the superintendent building and look for a small gate. A good crossbow shot on the plank should bring the fourth rune to you.
  • Reach the terrace of the superintendent building and enter through the balcony. You will find a safe on the third floor, the combination of which is 225. Obviously if you want to play cleanly, in a book nearby there is a very useful notation for receiving suggestions. In the safe is the fifth rune.
  • Look for another terrace from the balcony you are on. Look at the superintendent all intent on congratulating the crowd. You'll have to put him to sleep, one way or another, then jump down and get the sixth rune.
  • Very well, now there is a more complex step. You have to go back to the balcony where the superintendent was and jump to the one next to it, still on the same side of the building. It is a bit of a long journey. Once you are on the other side of the building you will need to move up to the roof. Move to a green building with a cigar logo. There will be another roof on your path, reach it and then dive into the water. Go back to the ground and look for a building this time blue. Inside is a superintendent. Knock him out and finally get the right reward for the grind: the seventh rune.

Mission 3 - The good doctor

Here are five runes to find.

  • Go to the dining room and to the left, near the table, you can find the first rune.
  • Use Blink or Far Reach to reach the fourth floor of the building, near a window. There is a rune inside, the second.
  • Destroy the Blood Nest in the Recovery Chamber to get the third rune.
  • The fourth rune is located in the basement of the elevator. You'll have to use Blink or Far Reach again to get there. Break the cables and then use your powers to reach the location.
  • The fifth and final rune can be found at the Outsider shrine on the fourth floor. Use your heart.

  • Purchase the second rune at the local Black Market. You can also steal it if you want.
  • The third is located in the Bloodfly building in Upper Aventa.
