A mysterious gnome statue left by GnoMAD.
— In-game description

GnoMAD's Gnomes are collectible items featured in Darksiders II. Finding all four Gnomes will reward the GnoMAD Scythes.

Gnome #1:[]

Area: City of the Dead – Floor 4

  1. At the northwest balcony, look for a hidden passage. You'll find it behind a turning ledge that you can grab onto.
  2. Using Death's soul splitter, open the door with the switch first with one soul, which also exposes a deathgrip hold on a nearby wall. Climb to the second hand hold with the second soul and stay there.  and use the first soul to get off the nearby pressure plate, exposing a secret room.

Gnome #2:[]

Area: The Ivory Citadel – Floor 3

  1. After purifying the pool on top of the westernmost tower, return to the northern passage that was previously covered in ooze on the second floor.
  2. To get back to the tower's top floor, follow the aqueduct and climb the wall, but don't leave through the door. Instead, drop down to the balcony below and climb back up to the top of the tower.
  3. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain this gnome prior to purifying the water - simply use soul splitter and use one of your clones to run on the ooze.

Gnome #3:[]

Area: The Weeping Crag – Floor 3

  1. To find a secret area, you'll run into a pressure plate / rising platform puzzle in the third floor of The Weeping Crag.
  2. Past the platform is a portal. Open it, then turn east and use the stairs, turning north and looking up at the ceiling for another portal to open. Activate it, then return to the previous portal — the two portals should now be linked, and you'll fall out of the ceiling portal into a secret room.
  3. Inside the treasury, dive around the northern waters for a secret underwater tunnel.

Gnome #4:[]

Area: The Black Stone – Floor 1 (Present)

  1. Wait until after you've unlocked the door in the past. When you return to the Great Foyer, check the northern ridge for hand holds. Descend the ledges, and return to the present through the portal.
  2. Now in the present, climb back up using the hand holds to the north and go through the now open westernmost door. The gnome is located deeper down the hall.


  • The name GnoMAD is a tribute to one of the principal creators of the Darksiders series, Joe Madureira, often called "Joe Mad" for short.
