Sea of Thieves is an open-ended pirate adventure where you make your own stories. Due to its nature, there are numerous hilarious moments which result in the course of normal gameplay. We've compiled some of the hilarious clips from the game where players are either barely avoiding a cannonball or showing off impressive finds.

This is why you need to stop the pirate with a barrel of gunpowder from sneaking onto your ship.

Projectile barrels

We saved one of the most remarkable clips for last. These pirates use a gunpowder barrel placed near the anterior of the ship as a projectile weapon.
