Darksiders 2 Boatman Coins Locations Guide

By   /   Aug 15, 2012


Darksiders 2 is a massive game – not just in-terms of its length, mind you, but also in-terms of how much optional content (side-quests and other goodies) it has to offer.

One of them is collectables, and there are a large number of them which have specific rewards which you can find after collecting. In this guide we’ll go over the places to collect the Boatman Coin, which is arguably the most abundant collectable item in the game.

Boatman Coins are a useful alternative to Gold for purchasing some loot boxes from Vulgrim. Because of this, they are a great way to get some powerful items.
