The Crow's Nest is a station located at the top of a ship's mast, where a player can act as a lookout for other ships or locations.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Many players choose to store Gunpowder Kegs in the Crow's Nest in an effort to prevent accidental detonation on or below deck, because such a blast would easily sink the ship. However, as of Anniversary Update, ship Masts can also take damage and break down, making it possible to snipe the Kegs placed on Crow's Nest to destroy all of the ship's sails. Fire can also spread up the Masts and blow any Gunpowder Barrels nested there. Crow's Nests are also favoured by sneaky pirates for tucking and hiding on an enemy player's ship. These players use the "Sleep" Emote to stay out of sight on the Crow's Nest, so make sure you check it regularly, if you fear being spied on by enemy ships.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
This is not to be confused with the Crow's Nest Fortress, which shares the same name.
