During your travels in Darksiders 2 you will discover a number of special items known as Boatman coins. An inevitable question will then follow, where can I find the Boatman Coins in Darksiders 2? This Darksiders 2: Boatman Coin Locations Guide will tell you exactly where to find each Boatman Coin and what you can do with them.
Boatman Coins are a highly useful item, they allow you to purchase random loot boxes from Vulgrim. You can purchase a character respec, or 3 unique loot boxes. The boxes cost 1000/1, 5000/5 and 10,000/5 in terms of Gold and Boatman Coins. These are a great way to get a selection of awesome items so you’ll want to make sure you collect as many Boatman Coins as possible. The item you get comes at the same level as Death, so I would suggest holding out until nearer the end if you want to attempt The Crucible and other hard tasks.
Darksiders 2: Boatman Coin Locations Guide – Forge Lands
Boatman Coin #1
The first Boatman Coin can be found in Tri-Stone. After you’ve spoken with the Makers at the forge in Tri-Stone, you’ll speak to Thane and he’ll open the large door on the way to the Forge. The first Boatman Coin can be located in a small body of water just after you enter.
Boatman Coin #2
The second Boatman Coin isn’t all that far from the first one. Once you enter Stonefather’s Vale, you’ll be introduced to the corruption via a cut-scene. After the cut-scene, mount up and head to the West. You’ll see a large door that has been corrupted in the distance, just next to that door is the second Boatman Coin.
Boatman Coin #3
The third coin can be found in The Nook in Baneswood. Head to Baneswood and travel to the most North Eastern dungeon. Inside the first room, with the strange blue object, there’s a lot of barrels and a chest. I’m not exactly sure which barrel I got the coin from as I only noticed it in my inventory after I left. So smash every box in the room and you’ll find your third coin.
Boatman Coin #4
The fourth Boatman Coin can also be found in Baneswood. Head to the South West corner of the map and you should notice it flying in the air. Go up the side of the hill part and jump off to collect it.
Boatman Coin #5
The fifth Boatman Coin can also be found in Baneswood. Take the South Eastern path towards the Charred Pass. Just when you go through the first arch on your map, you’ll notice a chest up to the West. Up behind the chest, further West, there’s a Boatman Coin on the edge of a jump. Jump off and grab it.
Boatman Coin #6
The next Boatman Coin can be found a little further ahead of number 5. As you continue down the Charred Pass you’ll pass a very large log that’s been torn in to. As you approach, check the hollow log on your left for the 6th Boatman Coin
Boatman Coin #7
The seventh Boatman Coin can be found directly North of the hollow logs. There’s a bunch of constructs surrounding a broken well. Swim down a short distance and you’ll see the coin.
Boatman Coin #8
The eighth Boatman Coin can be a little risky if you’re not careful. It’s inside the Cauldron shortly after the room with the explosive bomb switch. It’s not hard to miss, you’ll enter a room with a huge flow of lava down the middle. The Boatman Coin can be found down a small slanting path straight ahead of you as you enter the door.
Boatman Coin #9
Inside the Cauldron. When you reach the part with the Stalker, that carries the bone you need for the Shaman’s Craft Side Quest, destroy the barrels around the outer edge of the room to obtain your ninth Boatman Coin.
Boatman Coin #10
Another Boatman Coin inside The Cauldron. In the room with the first Blue Orb, and one hole, place the Blue Orb into the hole to turn the wall into a climbable object. Just up to the shimmy object, shimmy to the end and then jump directly behind to grab the floating Boatman Coin
Boatman Coin #11
Inside the Cauldron again for this one. Shortly after the room with the two Blue Orbs puzzle, you’ll have to press a switch to raise the Cauldron from the lava. Smash the nearby urns and boxes to get your tenth Boatman Coin.
Boatman Coin #12
The final Boatman Coin inside The Cauldron is located after you’ve defeated the boss and turn the circular lever. The circular staircase that takes you back to the entrance, jump down the middle of it to claim the twelfth Boatman Coin.
Boatman Coin #13
I’m not certain on the location of this Boatman Coin. Once you enter Drenchfoot for the first time, and past the Stingers and Prowlers, head North to a ruined castle. I was swimming around in the area when I noticed my Boatman Coin tally increased, so it’s there somewhere.
Boatman Coin #14
This Boatman Coin can be a little tricky. On your journey into Drenchfoot, just after you have to shoot the Shadowbomb, climb the side of the tower and walk slowly around the edge. Directly at the top, as soon as you jump up, you should see it.
Boatman Coin #15
The next Boatman Coin is almost directly next to number 14. After you enter the tower and get locked in, defeat the monsters to open the other door and then take a right as you leave.
Boatman Coin #16
This one took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to get it. It’s located next to Blackroot in the The Fjord. Look at him, and then turn slightly to your left, looking behind. You’ll see it floating. Use Despair (your horse) and use the sprint button off the edge to collect it
Boatman Coin #17
Check your map in The Fjord, you’ll see a watery area down to the South West. Head down there. Once there head to the end of the East side bridge and check under water. The seventeenth Boatman Coin is there.
Boatman Coin #18
Check The Fjord on your map and to the South East, on the North East side, there’s a windy road that appears to lead to a dead end. Follow that and enter a door into the cliff. Turn right once inside, past the two chests, to another small dead end. The Boatman Coin can be found there
Boatman Coin #19
In the Drenchfort at The Fjord. As soon as you enter (after activating the blue orb) look down and to your right ahead of you (over the edge) you’ll see the next Boatman Coin
Boatman Coin #20
In the first main room in Drenchfort, drop down to the bottom and follow the long tunnel. The Boatman Coin is at the end.
Boatman Coin #21
Another one in Drenchfort, this time in the room with the large statue and Blue Orb. Climb the North wall using the hand grips and walk over the very thin stone arch. There’s a chest nearby also.
Boatman Coin #22
Still in Drenchfort, this coin can be found in the ambush room with the stalkers inside one of the boxes. After you’ve filled the Aqueduct once, and you swim under the tunnel to climb the previously unreachable grips.
Boatman Coin #23
The final Boatman Coin I discovered in Drenchfort. After you pull the final lever, turn around and jump off the ledge you used to climb up.
Boatman Coin #24
I totally missed this first time round. On the road towards The Drenchfort, there’s a cliff you can leap off to find a Boatman Coin. It’s directly opposite Oran’s Right Leg (the strange rock formation nearby). This is just as you reach the path that winds round to The Drenchfort.
Boatman Coin #25
Found during the Side Quest Shattered Forge. It’s in the first big room with the central chest. Drop into the water below and swim round to the back
Boatman Coin #26
This one can be found inside The Nook during the main quest line. After you traverse the beams through the room with no floor, and then descend the staircase, you’ll enter a courtyard. The Boatman Coin is in the North East jars and boxes.
Boatman Coin #27
Another one inside The Nook. In the last room, the one filled with water and the large staircase, follow it underwater to a small room. The coin can be found inside that room.
Boatman Coin #28
Inside The Nook again, during the main quest line. You’ll encounter a floating head thing in a large room. Smash the barrels next to the door you used to enter to find the Boatman Coin.
Boatman Coin #29
This one is just around the corner from #28. After you kill the floating head and climb over the Corruption, follow the long tunnel to the room with water in the middle. The Boatman Coin is in-front and to the left, as you enter, under the water.
Boatman Coin #30
Another Boatman coin inside The Nook. After the huge fight with the multiple floating heads and Champions, you head West and through 2 doors to enter a large wall running area. As you land the other side, the Boatman Coin is behind you.
Boatman Coin #31
Almost immediately after Boatman Coin #30, you enter a large area with a huge tree ahead and to your right. Search near that tree for the next Boatman Coin.

Boatman Coin #35

Again in The Foundry. In the room where the second heart is, run to the West side and jump down into the water.
