Pets are animal companions that can accompany Player Pirates on their adventures in Sea of Thieves.

History[edit | edit source]

Early Concept of a Pet Cat.

Pets were originally planned to be added as microtransactions in 2018, 3 months after Sea of Thieves release, however due to the community's concerns regarding the state of the game at release, Rare chose to rework their Content Update roadmap and postpone Pets in order to focus their efforts on releasing several free campaigns and updates. By 2019, Rare had announced that Pets would be arriving as part of a Mega Update, later renamed the Anniversary Update, to mark the game's One Year Anniversary. However, due to feedback from Player testing on their Insider Programme, Rare once again postponed Pets to work on bugs and user interactions. A few months later, Rare finally deemed Pets ready, and they were released as part of the Pirate Emporium grand opening in the September 2019 Content Update, Smuggler’s Fortune. The release came with two species types of both Monkeys and Parrots, offering a variety of colours to choose from.

Acquiring Pets[edit | edit source]

Pets can be purchased from the Pirate Emporium with Ancient Coins. Ancient Coins can be acquired in Bundles in exchange for real money or as drops from the rare Ancient Skeletons that can spawn on Islands in both Adventure Mode and Arena.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

All pets are mechanically the same with their main differences coming from their species and personalities. When left by themselves, Pets will roam around the Ship and hang out on different perching spots when their owner is on board. When the owner leaves the Ship, pets will generally follow them around.

Pets also get dirty after longer adventures. A dirty Pet will be nearly completely black from dirt or soot. Dirty pets can be cleaned with most sources of Water.

Equipping Pets[edit | edit source]

Players can browse for and Equip any Pets that they own at a Pet Chest. These Chests can be found on Ships or by the Pirate Emporium Shop on each Outpost. The Chests can also be used to equip and unequip any owned Pet Outfits on Pets. Once equipped, Players can give their Pet a name to distinguish them from other Pets. Pets can be renamed at all times. An unnamed pet will simply show the pet’s species as its name. If a player wishes to get rid of their Pet, they can simply unequip a Pet at the Pet Chest.

Perching[edit | edit source]

Any Pet can be picked up to perch on a Pirate's hand. Here, the Primary Use will pet the pet while Secondary Use will offer the pet to be picked up by another Pirate. Any held Pets can be dropped with the Stow/Drop button.

Held Pets can be placed on top of various perching surfaces on Ships with the Interact button. When facing a perching spot with a held Pet, a prompt will signify that the Pet can be placed on top of it.

When left alone on a Ship, pets can pick any of the perching spots to hang out on, but they usually change positions or leave once their owner leaves the Ship. Any pets that have manually been placed on the Ship will stay there as long as it is deemed “safe” for them. Pets will leave a perching spot and cannot be placed on top of it if the spot is submerged in water or the Ship has sunk.

The following is a list of all the perching spots that Pets can be placed on:

Feeding[edit | edit source]

Pets can also be fed any type of Food from hand. Simply hold out the Food item with Secondary Use pointed towards the Pet. Pets may or may not accept Food depending on their mood. Note that feeding Pets gives them no benefits whatsoever, effectively wasting a Food item, however Pets are willing to eat burnt Food. Pets will get sick and throw up when fed Bait.

Other Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Pets can be launched out of Cannons. They will teleport back to their owner after reaching their destination. Any launched Pet will become dirty with soot and has to be washed clean.
  • Pets will dance to any Shanties played with Instruments.
  • Pets react to most of their Owner's Emotes, like sleeping, dancing, introducing or cheering with them.
  • Pets get scared near Skeletons, Combat, Gunshots, Crashes and Lightning strikes.
  • Pets react to ship inventory, including negative outcomes with explosive barrels.
  • Pets also react to their owners ringing a Ship's Bell.
