The Dunwall Tower's waterlock, the tallest in the Empire.

The Waterlock (also spelled Water lock) is a mechanism that allows access to the Dunwall Tower from the Wrenhaven River for small water vehicles such as boats. Steel doors allow entrance to the water lock, once the boat is inside the steel doors close shut sealing it from the river, then a group of engineers operating the control panels above turn on the pumps raising the water level and elevating the boat. After the process is complete and the boat is on level with the tower and a bridge is lowered to connect the area with the boat allowing for personnel to exit and enter the tower. The water lock appears in three missions: Returning Home, Return to the Tower and Death to the Empress.

Trivia[]

  • An Engineer operating the water lock mentions that its the "highest water lock in the empire" implying that there may be other water locks around the Empire of the Isles, some are seen in Karnaca.
  • When Corvo Attano interacts with Anton Sokolov while he is painting a portrait of High Overseer Campbell he asks him if he saw his improvements to the water lock; this suggests that the water lock was upgraded as an Engineer mentions that it works better with the new hydraulics system.
  • On the left side of the water lock Corvo can spot height measurement that goes from the bottom all the way to the top of the water lock and reaches the figure "120", the unit is unknown but it's most likely in feet. When Corvo stands next to it he will appear as 6 figures long which is approximately Corvo's height (6'4") according to Gameinformer.[1] Thus making the water lock 120 ft (36.5 m) high.
  • In the Field Survey Notes: the Royal Spy written by the Spymaster Hiram Burrows he expresses his satisfaction with the water lock as it is a safe access point to the tower and easy to defend, unlike the main gate that leads to Dunwall Tower.
