The Blunderbuss is a powerful firearm weapon in Sea of Thieves.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Blunderbuss is the close-range Shotgun type firearm that fires a spread of pellets with each shot. The Blunderbuss has a total of 5 Shots, after which the Ammo needs to be reloaded at an Ammo Chest or the Armoury. The Blunderbuss is the most effective when aimed down the sights and fired at close range. Aiming the Blunderbuss will concentrate all the pellets to a central point, where-as firing it from the hip spreads the pellets around all over the place. A point-blank shot from the Blunderbuss is enough to kill a Player at full health, making it the deadliest weapon in the game. The downside to this is that the Blunderbuss is fairly useless from mid-range on, with each hitting pellet doing just about 1-5% of damage. None-the-less, a point-blank shot from a Blunder can be used to try and hopefully hit a Gunpowder Barrel from afar. Both Regular and Bounty Voyage or Fortress Skeletons take just one point-blank Blunderbuss shot to kill, while Athena's Fortune Voyage Skeletons take 2-3 shots. It takes 3 point-blank Blunderbuss shots to destroy a Sapphire Cursed Mermaid Statue.

Variants[edit | edit source]

All new players receive a basic Sailor Blunderbuss, other aesthetic versions are available for purchase at the Weaponsmith's Shop.
