Sea of Thieves recently received a small update that adds new events, improves gameplay, and fixes bugs.

Ready to earn some gold? Well, it’s the perfect time to get double gold and rep by handing over treasures to the Mysterious Stranger. The Mysterious Stranger can be found in the Tavern, and only “Legends” can get double gold and rep for a limited time. Don’t worry if you aren’t a Legend yet, because you will get a chance to earn additional gold and rep on April 10.

Harpoon Aim Assist

Using the Harpoon to grab loot from far away can be quite frustrating because you need good aim. So, you need to repeat the process until you get it done. All that changes in this update as developers improved the aim assist with Harpoons and now have a higher chance to grab the treasure.
