The Reaper's Chest is one of the two Reaper's Boxes in Sea of Thieves. Reaper's Chests are cursed with the Reaper's Mark, which always indicates the location of the chest either with a light Beacon or a Red Skull Icon on Map Tables. These Chests are very valuable to the Reaper's Bones who are willing to offer a large sum of Doubloons for them.

Cursed Effects[edit | edit source]

An untouched Reaper's Chest shoots a Red and Green light beacon in the sky.
The location of the Reaper's Chest can be seen on the Map Table at all times.

Due to the Reaper's Mark attached to the Chest, its location is always visible as soon as it is unearthed or washed up from the seas. Before the chest is claimed by any Crews or Players, it will shoot up a swirling Red and Green beacon of light. Once claimed/touched, the beacon will disappear. The location of a Reaper's Chest is always visible on Map Tables, indicated by a Red and Black Skull pin. The high value and visibility of these Chests makes them easy targets.

Where to Find[edit | edit source]

Reaper's Chests can be found from the following sources:

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Reaper's Chests can be sold to The Servant of the Flame at The Reaper’s Hideout for Doubloons and Reaper's Bones Reputation and Emissary Value (if sailing as a Reaper's Bones Emissary). Reaper's Chests offer higher Reputation gains for Reaper's Bones Emissaries than other Treasure.

The following is the reward chart for the sold Chest:

Emissary Grade Doubloons Emissary Value
No Emissary 25 Doubloon.png 0
I 25 Doubloon.png 10800

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Picking up and placing Reaper's Boxes on a Ship for the first time gives Emissary Grade Reputation to Emissary Ships representing the Reaper's Bones.
  • All Reaper's Boxes emit a White Glint from a distance.
  • Reaper's Boxes can be caught with a Harpoon.
  • A Reaper's Chest gives off a low and ominous burning sound.
  • There have to be at least 3 Crews in a server for Reaper's Boxes to have a chance to spawn.
  • Reaper's Boxes spawn inside random Shipwrecks every hour after the Server start time. This is a good indicator of global Barrels respawns as well that replenish their contents every 30 minutes. The Boxes also despawn with Shipwrecks if they haven't been interacted with for more than a few hours.
  • It is possible to find more than one Reaper's Chest in a single Shipwreck.
  • Up to 5 Reaper's Chests have been spotted to spawn at the same time.
