The City Watch marching with rifles at the ready.

Rifles are one of the weapons used by the City Watch in Dunwall. Like the more common pistols, the rifles fire a projectile via a specially designed miniature whale oil tank.

Designed to provide the same firepower of the pistols but in a long-ranged, stable form, the only mass-produced rifles are reserved almost exclusively for military use. However, a number of custom-made hunting rifles, sometimes referred to as jezails, are used by big game hunters and explorers venturing into the Pandyssian Continent, to fend off whatever monstrous beasts they find there.

At a cost of around 300 coin each, the rifles' longer barrels and larger ammunition allow them to be deadlier and more effective at longer ranges than a pistol, but they still need to be reloaded after each shot and they also have a small chance of destroying themselves with a misfire.

Trivia[]

  • The rifle was first seen in the The Tales from Dunwall episode The Awakening; however, it was until their depiction in the Dishonored Roleplaying Game that they were given any type of in-depth description.[1]
  • According to the Dishonored Roleplaying Game, the cost of a rifle bullet is 5 coin.
