Inspectable objects are objects in Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider that either Corvo Attano, Emily Kaldwin or Billie Lurk will comment on when interacting with them. In Dishonored 2 the nature of the comment is often based on the chaos level, while in Death of the Outsider they stay the same.
