Dishonored Wiki

Doppelgänger is one of Emily's powers in "Dishonored 2". It summons a shade of yourself that attracts enemies. It costs 4 runes and there are four possible upgrades available.


Level 1[]

Level 2[]

Strategic Tips[]

Your Doppelgänger creates a diversion and flees from enemies, drawing attention away from you.

Enemies that destroy your Doppelgänger will believe they have eliminated any threat in the area, and will transition to a less alert state.

Your Doppelgänger will also trigger security systems and attract hostile animals, just as you would.


We didn’t see this Emily power in action during the demo, but Bakaba alluded to it when referencing the combinatorial possibilities the new powers afford.

Doppelganger creates a clone of Emily she can use for misdirection. But its most interesting application we know about is using this power in tandem with Domino. If you tie several enemies together and link them to your doppelganger, you could kill or incapacitate your clone to remove the threats. This even works against elite guards.[1]
