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.
We have listed these coins by the area in which you can find them. If you find more coins in these areas, let us know in the comments below, and we will add them up.
Boatman Coin #1 Location. After speaking with the makers and leaving from the northern gate (by speaking with Thane), you’ll come across a small water pool with the coin clearly visible in it.
