Dishonored 2: Rune & Bonecharm Locations | Upgrades Guide


Runes and bonecharms are the lifeblood of Dishonored 2. The more runes you collect, the more Outsider abilities you can unlock or upgrade. Bloodcharms won’t get you new abilities, but they do add permanent buffs to your character when equipped, increasing health regeneration, lowering mana usage, or any number of other bonuses.

Basically, you’re going to want all the runes and bonecharms you can get your hands on. They’re often hidden, so we’ll cover every step required to unlock the safes / doors / rooms where runes are hidden. That includes screenshots and step-by-step puzzle solutions — if a puzzle is involved, and oftentimes, one is involved.
