Sea of Thieves players get a new limited-time event, new weapons, and more in the game’s latest update.
From now through to July 10th, players will be able to take part in the Gunpowder Skeletons Event in which skeletons carrying kegs of gunpowder will spawn around the world.
Bringing an end to these skeletons in various ways will complete Gunpowder Skeleton Commendations that reward Bilge Rat Doubloons. These Doubloons can be used to purchase new limited-time items, including the Bone Crusher Sword, Pistol, Blunderbuss, and Eye of Reach. Players can also spend this currency on Letters of Recommendation that will increase reputation with a chosen Trading Company by one whole level.
As well as the above, the update makes it so gunpowder kegs can be lit via a five-second fuse by pressing the primary action button and increases their power so that they now have the force to rock and push ships.
Other changes include updated Megalodon behaviors, reduced skeleton accuracy, and improved visuals for the Bilge Rat UI.
