There are three Musical Duos in the game. If you find all three and listen to their song each time, you will get the “Songs of Serkonos” trophy/achievement.
Duo 1 – During the Edge of the World mission, search the market before Addermire Station.
Duo 2 – During the Dust District mission, sneak into the hideout for Howler’s gang and hide behind the bar to listen.
Duo 3 – At the start of the Grand Palace mission, head to the right before you pass through the Wall of Light, and find them in a back alley.
Note: You must listen to an entire song from start of finish for it to count toward the trophy/achievement. If the duo is already in the middle of a song when you approach them, wait for it to finish. Once they start their next song, listen to the entire thing. Combat will scare them away, so make sure to use stealth when approaching the duos.
Stilton's Master Key
During “A Crack in the Slab,” once you get the Timepiece, travel to the end of the hallway by switching from past to present to avoid enemies in each time. When you reach the room at the end, switch to the present to crawl under the table, and then switch to the past to get Stilton’s Master Key. You will also receive the “Under the Table” achievement.
Electroshock Machine puzzle
How to Solve It
If you’re having trouble with the Electroshock Machine puzzle in “The Clockwork Mansion,” you need to make sure the two terminals do not draw more than 4 power. (The total amount of power is 11, and the machine uses 7.)
If you select Anatomy and Optics, you will have enough power to use the Electroshock Machine.
Finding and Opening All the Safes
Use the instructions below to find all of the safes and their combinations. Many of the combinations are randomized, so you will need to find them in the game.
Mission: A Long Day in Dunwall
Location: Play until you leave the palace. Walk down the street until you pass a house with a “For Rent” sign. Check the door on the left side of the one marked with the sign, and go inside.
Combination: Look behind the painting for a clue. However, this code is not randomized. It is 451.
Mission: Edge of the World
Location: Go to the Karnaca Enclave and enter the Vice Overseers Office.
Combination: Take the note from inside the nearby room with the projector in it, and then check the book on the bench near the safe. The note tells you which items to check in the book. The numbers from the Seven Strictures assigned to those items give you the combination.
Mission: Edge of the World
Location: Once you get the “Carriage” objective, stop before entering the station. Find the Winslow Safe Company store nearby and approach the safe marked for the “Try to Unlock Me” contest.
Combination: Look inside the store’s cash register.
Mission: The Good Doctor
Location: At the start of the mission, head right and cross the broken walkway. You’ll find a room with one open safe and one locked safe.
Combination: Check the table by the door you came from.
Mission: The Good Doctor
Location: When you reach Alexandria Hypatia, explore the area before you talk to her. An injured man resting on a bed nearby will tell you where to find the safe.
Combination: The same man will also tell you the combination.
Mission: The Clockwork Mansion
Location: In the Lower Aventa District, leave the sewers and head to the left. Take the left alley until you find a group of people, and go inside the nearby apartment. The safe is upstairs.
Combination: Another room upstairs has a blackboard with two numbers written on it. Those are the first two numbers of the combination. Enter them and then try combinations until you find the correct final number.
Mission: The Royal Conservatory
Location: In the Cyria Gardens Conservatory, stand with your back to the Light Gate at the entrance and look up to find a balcony. Climb onto the balcony and go inside. When you find the Witch, the safe should be in the same room.
Combination: This combination must be bought from the area’s Black Market.
Mission: The Dust District
Location: This safe is not a safe at all, but the entrance to this area’s Black Market.
Combination: Behind the building, in the alleyway, look through the windows to find a barred door. Destroy the wood barring the door and go inside. Upstairs, you’ll find a room with a desk. There is a photograph on the desk, and behind the photograph is a Wedding Silvergraph. It gives you the clue “Month of Rain.” Leave the room and go into the hallway until you find a calendar and a list of months. The number beside “Rain,” along with the date marked on the calendar, are the numbers needed for the combination.
Mission: A Crack in the Slab
Location: Go inside Aramis Stilton’s Manor and use your Heart to find the Black Boneshard near an elevator in the building. While in the present time, crawl under the desk. Then switch to the past. You should now be able to enter the room and access the safe.
Combination: While in the room in the past, put the corpse in the furnace and burn it. Return to the present, and the room should be clear of the nests, allowing you to see the safe’s door and its combination. Go back to the past to use the code and open it.
Mission: The Grand Palace
Location: In the Winslow Safe Company store, take the key from the cash register. Head toward the Grand Palace, but don’t go inside yet. Instead, find the shopkeeper’s apartment, where you’ll find the safe.
Combination: A photograph in the apartment includes the combination. However, this code isn’t randomized. It is 123.
Mission: The Grand Palace
Location: Inside the Grand Palace, there is a safe in the Captain’s Quarters on the first floor.
Combination: Take the elevator to the third floor of the Grand Palace and go inside the room to the right of the elevator. There is a small desk in the far corner with a note on it. The note contains the combination for the safe.
Mission: Death to the Empress
Location: This is the same safe as the very first safe.
Combination: It also has the same combination hidden behind the painting: 451.
