Firebombs are a type of throwable in Sea of Thieves. They can either be thrown by hand or shot out of cannons to cause fire damage to any player, opponent, or ship. They can also be used to light campfires.

Where to find

Firebombs are fairly commonly found in Resource Barrels, Storage Crates, Rowboat Chests and Skeleton Ships. They can be stored in the Ship's Cannonball Barrels. Like Cannonballs, Firebombs can also be unloaded from previously loaded Cannons. Some Skeleton Ships have Firebombs in their arsenals. All Ships come pre-stocked with 2 Firebombs inside each Cannonball Barrel. Firebombs can also be found inside dug-up Firebomb Crates.


  • Throw: Primary Use will launch the throwable upon release. Holding the button will prepare a throw until released.
  • Offer item: Secondary Use will extend the hand out, allowing the throwable to be taken by another player.
  • Cannons: Throwables can also be placed inside cannons to be fired great distances.


  • Up to 5 Throwables can be held in a player's inventory at one time.
  • A single Firebomb can be loaded into any Cannon, signified by a flame at the Cannons muzzle.
  • Up to 99 Firebombs can be stored in one storage space of a Barrel at a time. A single Ship's Cannonball Barrel can carry up to 3 pages worth (i.e. 4752) of Firebombs.
  • Up to 20 Firebombs can be stored in one storage space of the Rowboat Chest. A single Rowboat's Chest can carry a maximum of 2 pages worth (i.e. 640) of Firebombs.
  • Up to 99 Firebombs can be stored in one storage space of a Storage Crate. A single Storage Crate can carry up to 1584 Firebombs.
  • Up to 20 Firebombs can be stored in one Firebomb Crate, which can be sold to the Merchant Alliance for Gold and Reputation when filled.
