Dishonored 2 encourages experimentation, but how many of you just pop a sleep dart and move on?
Dishonored 2, likes its precursor, is fertile ground for many-deaths videos. Youtuber Cosmic Contrarian – best known for his amazing Fallout NPC battles, which we’ve featured many times – has taken up this challenge with a campaign of sustained attacks against Kirin Jindosh.
If you’re yet to explore the Clockwork Mansion in Dishonored 2 you should skip this video for now, as it contains spoilers. I went over it pretty thoroughly and was still surprised by some of the ways Cosmo found to off Jindosh.
As you’d expect, many of these kills are just running through Corvo and Emily’s powers and inventories, counting each method twice, but others are way more creative, and show off what you can do in Dishonored 2 if you think outside the box – and also some of the game’s mysteries, like the deadly power of thrown glasses. You’ll also see the unique animation for murdering Jindosh in a face-to-face confrontation.
Jindosh, Grand Inventor to the Duke of Serkonos and the owner of the Clockwork Mansion, is one of those characters it’s difficult to feel sympathy for; I couldn’t find any in-game materials suggesting he’s not just an arrogant prick who tortures animals and humans remorselessly. Does he deserve what Emily and Corvo do to him in Dishonored 2? Well, we’re here to watch a man be murdered 80 times: we probably left our morals at the door.
