The Cannonball Crate (also referred to as Crate of Cannonballs) is a type of Resource Crate for Cannonballs in Sea of Thieves. Resource Crates can be filled with various Resource Commodities and traded to Merchant Alliance Representatives on Outposts who offer Gold and Reputation for them. Resource Crate deliveries can also be Commissioned via Trade Good Commissions acquired while sailing around the seas. Commissioned Crates reward Crews with nearly double the regular filled Crate's value when delivered to the correct NPC in Time.


Every Cannonball Crate can carry up to 50 pieces of Cannonball Resource items. Only regular Cannonballs can be put inside the Crate. Cannonball Crates can be found on the Seas with a variable amount of Cannonballs already in them.

Player Crews can occasionally find Trade Good Commission Quests from Tattered Parchments, Messages in a Bottle or Mysterious Journals that require the delivery of a filled Cannonball Crate to a specific Outpost Senior Trader by a specific date and time. With this Quest present, Players can pick up an empty Cannonball Crate from any Senior Trader.

Cannonball Crates can be used as portable Cannonball containers to have easier access to ammunition on the top deck of a Ship.
