The Firework is a Resource item that can be fired from the Cannon to create a colourful light display over the sky. There are various different types of Fireworks, each with a unique appearance in-hand and when launched. Some Fireworks create distinct patterns inspired by the Sea of Thieves.


When the cannon is fired, the flare will burn a 3-second fuse before setting off. The Firework cannot be cancelled during this period, but it gives any spectating players a few seconds to step back to watch the display.

A travelling firework will explode prematurely upon colliding with solid objects, this explosion will not activate the firework but may start a fire if struck upon a ship. It will also have a chance to create a stun effect on players within a close radius, causing a blinding flash to obscure their vision.

Fireworks and Signal Flares occupy their own inventory space, allowing players to carry up to 10 altogether without affecting storage capacity for any other resource. They can be stored in Cannonball Barrels, Storage Crates and Firework Crates.

Where to find

Fireworks can be found from the following sources:


Signal Flares

Main article: Signal Flares

Signal Flares are a special type of firework used primarily for signalling purposes rather than aesthetic purposes.

Signal Flare Description
Red Signal Flare Use this simple burst of red light to call for aid or signal your crew, wherever they may be.

Fireworks come in a variety of unique displays. The classic Firework will offer a small, simple display of colour, the cake Firework offer a larger version of the classic displaying a collaboration of multiple colours, and the themed Firework offers intricate shapes of familiar imagery.
