The Compass is an Equipment item in Sea of Thieves that allows the player to determine the direction they are facing.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Compass, unlike the one mounted at the ship's wheel, will always gauge the correct heading even in a storm. While holding a Compass, a player can Primary Use to pace themselves in slow, clear bobbing footsteps that can be counted easily to determine pace distance. This function is imperative in Riddle Hunts which relay specific measurements to complete the clue.

Variants[edit | edit source]

All new players are equipped with a basic Sailor Compass by default. Other versions are available for purchase from the Equipment Shop and Companies.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When treasure hunting via X marks the spot type maps, it can sometimes help to use landmark objects that are directly North/South/East/West of the X, then pull out your compass, face the appropriate direction, swap to the shovel and start digging up a line.
