The Chest of Rage is a Cursed Treasure Chest in Sea of Thieves. It boils with rage until eventually exploding with a burst of fire.

Cursed Effects[]

The Chest of Rage heating up.

The Chest of Rage explodes after overheating.

The Chest of Rage eventually makes surrounding Water Boil.

If left unattended, the Chest of Rage will start heating up, eventually glowing and steaming and ultimately explodes leaving large swathes of Fire around it, damaging any Creatures or Player Pirates, Gunpowder Barrels and Ships in range. The explosion does not deal damage or create holes in the hull of a ship, only set the surroundings on fire. It takes 2 minutes for the chest to go from its dormant state to exploding.

The Chest will heat up faster when sustaining damage. Continuously hitting the chest with a Cutlass will make it explode in just 10 seconds.

The explosion can be delayed by cooling the chest using water such as by dropping it in the sea, filling a ship's hull, bailing water on it with a Bucket, etc.

  • Currently, the best spot to keep Chests of Rage is on top of Barrels in the bottom decks with a couple of Bucket's worth of Water below. A Chest won't set the deck on fire as they are not on the deck. Any players in the vicinity will however take Fire Damage.
  • You can douse a Chest of Rage with a Bucket of Vomit.
  • The Chest of Rage can be left on a Ship's bowsprit and a single bucket of water is needed to put out the fire from the explosion.
