Sea of Thieves – 2.8.0 Patch Notes | Get Rich in Style with Gold Hoarders Cosmetics!

Outpost Cosmetics

Gold Hoarders Cosmetics

  • Loyal followers of the Gold Hoarders can now find a range of clothing, weapons and equipment in stock at the Outpost shops to help them complete the Gold Hoarders set.

Season One Legacy Cosmetics

  • Cosmetics previously available during Season One have now arrived in the Outpost shops for a sizeable Doubloon cost, allowing all players to add them to their collection – for a price! Pirates can now purchase the Frostbite clothing set, the Legendary Hair and Beard and items from the Accomplished set. The time-limited Shroudbreaker items, however, remain exclusive to players who participated in Season One.


Sailing Audio Accessibility Improvements

  • Within the Audio Settings, players now have access to a new setting to enhance the audio effects heard while sailing to aid in navigation. This setting is Off by default, but when enabled it improves the audio cues around navigational threats such as sea rocks, allowing players to hear approaching dangers and react appropriately.

Fixed Issues


  • Players can no longer place items on the ship’s capstan, and any item placed here will now drop onto the deck.
  • Players engaging in melee combat and blocking with a sword will now find the block consistently prevents the player from taking damage.
  • Phantoms’ charging attack now has a reduced range, preventing players from taking damage when successfully dodging.
  • Supply barrels jettisoned from a ship will now be more spread out, ensuring they do not intersect with each other when surfacing.
  • Crews who remove all items from a washed-up Storage Crate and then leave the area will no longer gain additional resources when returning later to the same crate.
  • Players rapidly removing resources from Storage Crates should now consistently remove the correct number of items.

Battle for the Sea of Thieves

  • Crews diving beneath the waves will no longer bring the lit state of lanterns at the Fort of the Damned to their destination server. However, crews migrating naturally will continue to bring this state with them.
  • Emissary Flags now grant Allegiance when sold to the Mysterious Stranger.
  • Ships that dive below the waves looking for opponents should now be automatically repaired even when damaged prior to diving.
  • Becoming a Servant Champion no longer unlocks the Become Pirate Legend achievement.
  • Players who sneak on board another Faction ship and attempt to use a ship interactable as it dives beneath the waves will retain control when returning to their ship.


  • Players will no longer be able to walk through the textures of a Sea Fort basement.
  • Players can no longer walk through textures at the Shrine of Tribute.
  • Within the Pirate Legend Hideout, players should no longer be able to push through the environment and appear in the sea.
  • The player’s camera will no longer intersect with environment set dressings in two seating spots within the Pirate Legend Hideout and Glorious Sea Dog Tavern.

Visual and Audio

  • Performing the Armour Mock Emote now displays an explosive visual effect.
  • When a cutlass three-hit combo is performed, the defending pirate will now only visually react to three strikes, whether they’re blocked or successful.
  • To prevent overlapping graphical issues, pets are no longer able to sleep on the ship’s bed.
  • When performing the Oar-Inspiring Balance Emote, players zooming in with the camera will now keep their pirate in view.
  • The ‘Disable Blur’ option now continues to work after travelling through the Tunnels of the Damned.
  • Performing a weapon pose with the Infinite Depths Cutlass now shows the pirate’s hands in the correct location.
  • Players rebinding their Secondary Interact and Primary Interact before sitting down can now continue to use the third-person camera.
  • ‘Lords of the Sea’ – Captain Jack Sparrow can no longer be seen floating above the ground during the cutscene for this Tall Tale.

Text and Localisation

  • The prompt for the skeleton in the Store Room at Royal Crest Fortress has been made more descriptive for screen readers.
  • The ‘Place Trinket’, ‘Restore My Ship’ and ‘Browse Captain’s Voyages’ prompts are now translated in all non-English languages.
  • The ‘Show/Hide Tall Tale’ prompt on the ship’s map has now been translated into multiple languages.
  • Corrected a spelling mistake after players finished ‘The Cursed Rogue’ Tall Tale.

Performance and Stability

  • Reduced instances of server instability that cause players to be disconnected from their session.
  • Players are no longer mistakenly issued with a placeholder belt when launching the game, and those who received it will now find it has been removed from their inventory. Fear not – this golden belt will return in a later Season.

Known Issues

Pirate’s Log Season UI

  • Players on lower-spec hardware may experience issues when browsing the Pirate Log, finding they are unable to navigate to the active Season to check progress, Trials and Deeds. However, players continue to earn Seasonal Renown for their actions, and progress through the Season can be checked on the Sea of Thieves website.

Reduced Server Performance

  • Players may experience scenarios where they encounter ping spikes at random while playing, resulting in rubberbanding or client stutters. While improvements were most recently released in update 2.7.3, the team continue to work on further improvements for future updates.

Ranged and Melee Weapon Hit Detection

  • In areas of intense action, players may find themselves firing shots or landing strikes that do not cause damage to their targets. While small improvements continue to be delivered during our regular updates, we are continuing to investigate and identify further improvements to the player combat experience.
