Sea of Thieves is the ultimate pirate simulator, allowing you to explore the oceans and do all the things pirates do, including hunting buried treasure, combating skeletal pirates, eating bananas, and more. You'll find yourself carrying many things 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
While holding something in Sea of Thieves, you must press the interact button. On a controller, this is the B button. Locate where you want to place your treasure chest, skull, or anything else, and press the B button. Your pirate will place the item down there until you or another person 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. This defaults to the X key on PC. Both controller and keyboard allow you to remap this input.
When you're in combat, you'll want to remember where you place items, particularly any treasure you discover while sailing. Dropping items in secured locations ensures that your treasure stays aboard your ship, and allows you to hide things on islands if another crew attempts to steal your treasure.
