Shadow Kill is a passive supernatural ability in Dishonored and its DLCs. It causes Corvo Attano and Daud to turn characters to ash when slain, eliminating the need to hide bodies.

Ability tiers

Tier I - (2 runes (Corvo)/ 1 rune (Daud))

Shadow kill

Shadow Kill in action.

With Tier I Shadow Kill, any unaware characters turn into ash when killed by Corvo or Daud.

Tier II - (4 runes (Corvo)/ 3 runes (Daud))

With Tier II Shadow Kill, all of Corvo and Daud's slain enemies turn to ash, whether unaware or alerted to their presence.

Usage tips

  • Shadow Kill does not prevent chaos from rising.
  • Shadow Kill is essential for a stealthy high chaos run, as the user does not have to take the time to hide corpses.
