Black Coated Pig

From Sea of Thieves Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Black Coated Pigs are a type of Pig in Sea of Thieves. The Black Coated Pig can be caught inside a Pig Crate and sold to the Merchant Alliance for Gold, Reputation (and Emissary Value when sailing as Trading Company Emissaries). Alternatively, pigs can be killed for Pork, which can then be cooked and eaten for Health or sold to The Hunter's Call for Gold and Reputation.

Mechanics

Pigs can be found roaming around in groups on Islands, minding their own business. Pigs have very little health and drop raw Pork when killed. Any Pigs that die to Fire or Explosives may leave behind Burnt or Cooked Meat instead.

Pigs are one of the three Animals that are valuable to the Merchant Alliance Trading Company. The Merchant Senior Traders on Outposts offer Merchant Voyages that may send players in search of Pigs to be captured and delivered to a specific Outpost by a specific time. Black Coated Pigs may be one of the Animals required for capture in a Merchant Contract. To capture a Pig, players need to hold a Pig Crate in hand and hold down the Primary Interact Button near them. Pig Crates can be picked up from any Senior Trader at Outposts when Pigs are requested in the Merchant Contract. Pig Crates can also randomly be found on Islands.

Captured pigs need to be regularly fed Fruit. A hungry pig will make loud crying noises and sit down in it's crate. If it's still not fed, the pig will starve to death, dropping a piece of Pork. Pigs inside Pig Crates can still die from any source of damage meaning that they need to be kept safe from any source of harm.

Pig Crates cannot be sold empty and are only valuable with a Pig inside.

Rewards

Black Coated Pigs captured inside Pig Crates can be sold for an un-commissioned reward or a commissioned reward when a Merchant Contract for the pig is issued. Alternatively Pork from a killed Pig can be sold to The Hunter's Call.
