The Cutlass is the melee Weapon Item in Sea of Thieves.

Usage[]

The Cutlass can damage multiple enemies in a wide arc. It takes about 2 direct sword hits to defeat the weakest, regular type of Skeletons, 4 hits for Bounty Voyage or Skeleton Fort Skeletons and other Player Pirates and 7 hits for Athena's Fortune Voyage Skeletons.

Functions[]

Some functions will slow the player to a pace above walking speed.

  • Primary Use performs a standard strike.
  • Holding Secondary Use assumes a guard stance that blocks strikes, slowing the player.
  • Holding Primary Use for 0.5 second will immobilize the player (slowed and cannot jump), preparing an automatic lunge attack that cannot be blocked. If the attack misses, the player is momentarily exhausted after execution: unable to move or switch equipment.
  • Hitting another player will momentarily stun them, interrupting most actions (Such as movement, eating, attacking, etc.) performed through player input. This makes escaping a sword combo extremely difficult.

Special Maneuvers[]

These are button combinations and tactics that are not immediately obvious.

  • Triple Slash Combo: Landing a strike allows for follow-up strikes with much less delay. This can be performed a maximum of three times before the combo ends, which inflicts knockback to the target if blocked.
  • Block Leap: Jumping in any direction while blocking will allow the player to hop in that direction. Useful for manipulating gaps while being defensive. Allows player to jump through opponents. Useful when cornered by multiple attackers.
  • Block Lunge: Performing a lunge attack during a block will remove the immobility of the wind-up. Can be used in combination with Block Leap during wind-up to dodge incoming attacks that would otherwise cancel the lunge attack.
  • Leap Lunge: Jumping during a block lunge attack will propel the player forward with great momentum. Diving into the water with this maneuver will cross a great distance.

Variants[]

All new players are equipped with a basic Sailor Cutlass by default, other aesthetic versions are available for purchase at the Weaponsmith's Shop.
