Best locations to hide treasure in Sea of Thieves
Your ship will likely have loads of random barrels on the lower decks. We may not know what’s in them, but we do know that they can perfectly obstruct another player’s view of the floor and some corners. And while some of them might be small in size, they can still be used to keep little treasures away from your enemies’ line of sight. Make sure to take advantage of the barrels you can find in your ship and place skulls and other valuables behind them to keep them hidden.
Buried under the ground
You can also bury your treasure in the sand, making it harder for enemies to find your loot. Instead of hiding your treasure in shrubs or any of the above-mentioned hiding places, just find an inconspicuous plot of land or sand where you want to bury your loot.
The Crow’s Nest is a great place to look out for other ships, help the Coxswain navigate, and look for land. The Crow’s Nest is also a great place to hide your treasure chests in, as other pirates won’t think of looking that high up for them. This convenient spot also makes it easier to take them ashore when you reach the nearest port, as you can usually jump straight into the water from there.
Next to equipment boxes
The equipment boxes below the deck store all your cosmetic items necessary for the everyday pirate life. This is also a perfect spot to hide your treasure chest, as it will blend in with the equipment boxes. The most popular spot to hide treasure chests is below deck, so if you choose to use this method, make sure you head to the nearest port immediately.
The Voyage Table is unique in its own way as it is the place where you vote on what voyages to partake in. Not only can you place your voyages on the table, but you can also place items like skulls and silver cups. Putting them on the table makes them look like decorations, helping them blend in with the rest of the items in the Captain’s Quarters.
With the island shrubs
If you’re worried that some enemies might be able to break through your defenses and successfully infiltrate your ship to take away your loot, you’d best try to store your treasure somewhere safe but near enough to access — and Island shrubs fulfill the requirement. These shrubs, located on small islands near your ship, are good spots to hide your stash—as long as you stay within the same game server instance and don’t log out before collecting them.
These six locations on your ship and around it are the best places to make sure your treasure is safe until you get to the next port. Remember, when you’re plundering another pirate’s ship, look in the Crow’s Nest next to equipment boxes, and check the voyage table to see if they’ve hidden away extra treasure.
