Sea of Thieves is the ultimate pirate simulator, giving you the freedom to sail the seas and do all the things pirates do. This includes hunting buried treasure, combating skeletal pirates, eating bananas, and more. You'll find yourself having to carry many items back to your ship, which may leave you wondering how to get things back in Sea of Thieves.
How to drop items in Sea of Thieves on Xbox
When you hold anything down in the Sea of Thieves with a controller, you must press the interact button. On a controller, this is the X button. Locate the location where you want to place your treasure chest, skull, or anything else, and hold the X button. Your pirate will place the item down there until you or someone else picks it up.
How to drop items in Sea of Thieves on PC
The same applies to PC gamers, except with a different input, of course. Find your drop-off location and press the interact button. On PC, this defaults to the F key. Both controller and keyboard allow you to modify this input.
When you're in combat, you'll want to remember where you put your items, especially any treasure you discover while sailing. Using items in secured locations ensures that your loot stays aboard your ship or allows you to conceal items on islands in the event another crew attempts to steal your treasure.
