Type Supplies

The Cannonball is a Supply Item in Sea of Thieves that can be used with Cannons to deal splash damage.

Where to find them[edit | edit source]

Every Ship starts out with an initial stock of 40 or 45 Cannonballs stashed in the Ship's Cannonball Barrels. Additional Cannonballs can be gathered from Barrels all over the world. Cannonballs can also be unloaded from previously loaded Cannons. Aside from regular Cannonballs, there are various types of Cursed Cannonballs that can be found in Barrels or on Skeleton Ships.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Cannonballs are mainly used as ammunition for loading up and shooting with Cannons. A Cannonball 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 cannonball 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. Cannonballs can be used to damage the Hull and various parts of player Ships and the Hull of Skeleton Ships, to defeat Krakens, Megalodons and anything else with health such as Skeletons, Animals and even Players. There are usable Cannons on every Ship, every Fortress, every Skeleton Ship, most Large Islands, and some on Arches Peak.

Storage[edit | edit source]

  • Up to 10 Cannonballs can be held in a player's inventory at one time.
  • A single Cannonball can be loaded into any Cannon, signified by a fuse appearing on back of the Cannon.
  • Up to 100 Cannonballs 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 Cannonballs.
  • Up to 20 Cannonballs 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 Cannonballs.
  • Up to 100 Cannonballs can be stored in one storage space of a Storage Crate. A single Storage Crate can carry up to 1800 Cannonballs.
