How to Fix the CinnamonBeard Error in Sea of Thieves


Sea of Thieves is attracting pirates from far and wide, on both Xbox One and PC. Some Xbox One users, however, are experiencing one of many interestingly named errors. The CinnamonBeard error can occur to Xbox One gamers while attempting to connect to game servers. This is usually caused by the onslaught of pirates trying to connect. In fact, it’s just a variation of the less tastily-named BronzeBeard error.

Fixing CinnamonBeard

CinnamonBeard errors are caused by servers that are overloaded. Too many pirates trying to board the ship, d’ye savvy? To translate that pirate lingo to English, have a look at our helpful Sea of Thieves lingo guide.

Fortunately, it’s easy to fix the CinnamonBeard error. Just like with the BronzeBeard error, follow these steps on your Xbox One:

  • Press the Guide Button on your controller
  • Highlight Sea of Thieves
  • Press the Menu Button (to the right of the Guide Button on your controller)
  • Highlight “Quit” and press A
  • Re-launch Sea of Thieves from your Pins, Recent or My Games & Apps areas of your console
  • Navigate the menu and join a game as usual

If you should encounter the same error on the PC, your solution is even simpler. Restart the game and try again. Sometimes it can be helpful to also restart the Microsoft Store app or even Windows itself, in extreme circumstances of desperation and sea withdrawals.
