Type Treasure

Bounty Skulls are a type of Treasure Item in Sea of Thieves. They are, in essence, the cursed skulls of undead Skeleton Captains that are highly valuable to the Order of Souls. The main way of acquiring these Cursed Skulls is to complete Bounty Voyages for the Order of Souls that send you to defeat specific Skeleton Captains of all types throughout the seas. Different variations of the skulls are dropped by the Captains, however Bounty Skulls can also be found shored on Islands, inside Shipwrecks, Fortress Vaults and Skeleton Ships or even after defeating a Megalodon or a Kraken.

Bounty Skulls are sold to the Order of Souls for Gold and Reputation, who seek the knowledge of these fallen pirates.

Bounty Skulls can be distinguished by their cursed green glow that can be seen from afar, so it is advised to not store them on the top deck of the ship. This glow can also be concealed by placing Bounty Skulls inside a Collector's Chest.

Skull Types[edit | edit source]

There are four types of regular Bounty Skulls that can be acquired from regular Bounty Voyages and four Ashen variations of these Skulls acquired from Devil's Roar Islands or Ashen Voyages, which are worth twice as much as their regular counterpart. There are also special Bounty Skulls that belong to the Skeleton Captain's of Skeleton Ships or Skeleton Forts. Additionally, there is a Bounty of 10 000 Gold on the Legendary Skeleton Lord Gold Hoarder and his Cursed Skull.
