I’m having some real trouble with the first assassination. I’m where I saved the guy from the first overseer. I can’t get past the other 5 on the other side of the gate without confronting them. I tried to kill the one walking into the bunker, but then there was another one.

Any advice on how I can proceed?

    Its been a while since i played but i'm quite sure there is a fence (i believe on the left of where your freed the other bloke) with barbed bars on top, you should be able to blink over there. There should also be a window close to there that lets you into a basement of sorts, thus bypassing the guards. Nov 13, 2018 at 12:34

    In most cases with Dishonored; there is always an alternative route. Keep an eye out for out of sight perches, ledges or poorly guarded alleys.

By my estimation, you've just saved Overseer Martin, and are here, at this gate:

I like to Blink up to the air duct next to the gate. You have to jump and blink at the same time:

From there, you overlook an open area with three overseers. My preferred strategy is to Blink onto the tops of the street lights:

Blinking onto the next couple of lights gets you close enough to Blink to the stone ledge:

and from there across to the ledge of the building High Overseer Campbell is in:

You now overlook the main courtyard of the Overseer's building. Staying on this ledge will lead you to an open window where you can enter without confronting any enemies.

Ta-Da! You're in! Now to navigate the interior of the building.

Even if you haven't spent runes on upgrading Blink, I think this method will still work. Blink is probably the best skill Corvo has since it allows you to take so many new paths.
