Company Gold Hoarders

The Chest of Sorrow is one of the Treasure Chests in Sea of Thieves, a Treasure related to the Gold Hoarders.

Where to Find

Like most Treasure Chests, the Chest of Sorrow can be found:


  • The Reward shown is an estimate of minimum and max value when sold.

    Unique Effects

  • The Chest of Sorrow sobs periodically, releasing a high volume of water onto the ship carrying it. Water must be continually bailed out via Buckets while it does this, and/or the chest must be held offdeck. It can be carried along the outer ladders, or on a detached rowboat.
  • The chest also attempts to "swim away" if dropped into the sea, so it cannot be stored in the water while players explore islands. A player must generally stay behind to care for the chest, or it can be placed on land.

Pirate Chat

The Unique Pirate Chat dialogue option for the Chest of Sorrow is: "I can't carry on..."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A female version of the Chest of Sorrow was originally planned.
  • The chest leaves a puddle of tears around it when crying inland.
  • The Chest has come to be known colloquially as the "Kevin" chest, in recognition of one legendarily whiny pirate. "Kevinning" opposing ships is often used as a shorthand for using the CoS to sink another ship.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

  • BUG FIX: Fixed a bug where the chest won't flood the ship if kept on a rowboat that then docked.
