Type Cursed Cannonball

The Venomball is a Supply Item in Sea of Thieves that can be used with Cannons to Poison groups of Enemies.

Where to find them[edit | edit source]

Venomballs have a low chance to appear in Barrels all over the world. Venomballs can also be unloaded from Cannons that have been loaded with a Venomball. Some Skeleton Ships use Venomballs as a part of their arsenal.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Venomballs are mainly used as ammunition for loading up and shooting with Cannons. A Venomball needs to be loaded inside an empty Cannon before it can be used as ammunition. Once a Cannon is loaded, the player can manually aim the cannon with Directional keys and then Shoot the Venomball with the Primary Use key. As the fired Cannonball's firing trajectory and arc is influenced by the angle of the Cannon and the sailing speed of the Ship, hitting targets with Cannonballs requires some practice.

Venomballs are used to apply the Poisoned effect on hit Players and Skeletons. A poisoned character's screen will turn dark purple and their health will deterioate by 5% every second for a few seconds. A Venomball affects the surrounding area of its impact zone, making it possible to Poison a whole Ship or ground area. Note that Venomballs do not do direct damage to a Ship. It is uncertain whether the Poison effect of a Venomball can be inflicted on enemies other than Players or Skeletons. Additionally, if a Venomball is shot at a ship immediately adjacent to the Cannon, the ball's curse will also affect the Cannon where it was shot from due to splash damage.

Storage[edit | edit source]

  • Up to 10 total Venomballs can be held in a player's inventory at one time.
  • A single Venomball can be loaded into any Cannon, signified by a fuse appearing on front of the Cannon and green coloured smoke appearing from its muzzle.
  • Up to 100 Venomballs can be stored in one storage space of a Barrel at a time. A single Ship's Cannonball Barrel can carry up to 3 pages worth (i.e. 4800) of Venomballs.
  • Up to 20 Venomballs can be stored in one storage space of the Rowboat Chest. A single Rowboat's Chest can carry a maximum of 2 pages worth (i.e. 640) of Venomballs.
