  • The presence of a Reaper's Chest on a map is marked in two ways.
    • First, the location of an untouched Reaper's Chest inside a Shipwreck is indicated by a red and green swirling plume of light pillaring into the sky. This light pillar can be seen from anywhere on The Sea of Thieves. The light beam will disappear as soon as the Reaper's Chest is picked up.
    • Second, every Reaper's Chest's location is shown on a Map Table, indicated by a red skull circle. This mark will be shown on the map at all times until the chest is turned in.
