A bunch of gameplay fixes have been implemented in the latest patch for Sea of Thieves.

One of the things that got fixed in Update 2.6.3 is related to the Skeleton Fort. If you’re still new to Sea of Thieves, the Skeleton Fort is a world event where you take on 12 waves of 10 skeletons before facing the Skeleton Captain.

Anyway, there was this issue where skeleton waves would just halt abruptly, leaving you unable to finish the event. If you like taking on the Skeleton Fort, this fix is a godsend.

The customization shop also received a bug fix. Now, using the “Items I Own” filter no longer causes the supply and Voyage shops to appear empty.

You can find the other bug fixes below:


  • The ominous ship cloud in the sky signifying an encounter with a Skeleton Fleet has returned to the rotation of world events.
  • Handing Devil’s Roar Cargo Run Crates in on time and in perfect condition will now update the following Commendations correctly: Merchant of Forsaken Silk, Merchant of Forsaken Flora and Merchant of Forsaken Rum.


  • Players who start a solo Captained session should no longer see a notification that the Captain has left.
  • Players swapping Trinkets in quick succession will now find the correct Trinkets remain applied when starting the next game session.
  • Players discarding Captain’s Voyages in quick succession will now find the correct Voyages in the Captain’s Bookshelf when starting the next game session.
  • Players enabling "Replace Gamertag on Ship’s Banners" will now find this setting persists across sessions.
  • Players enabling "Replace Ship Names" will now find all ship names are replaced when browsing owned ships in the Ship’s Log.
  • A customized Captain’s Logbook will now retain its customisation when dropped on the ground.
  • The Ancient Chain ornament no longer moves strangely when the ship is moving.


  • Players can no longer swim through the wall with the Siren riddle in the Shrine of Tribute.
  • Players can no longer jump into the gap in the map and fall underneath that area within the Shrine of Ancient Tears.
  • Loot no longer disappears when placed at the Vault's entrance on Kraken Watchtower.


  • Improved server stability to reduce scenarios where crews are removed from a game session.
  • Client stability has also been improved, reducing scenarios where players experience a game crash.

Sea of Thieves Update 2.6.3 is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
