The Reaper's Chest is a Reaper's Bones Treasure in Sea of Thieves. The chest is cursed with the Reaper's Mark, allowing it to be tracked on a Map Table by other crews.

Cursed Effects

An untouched Reaper's Chest shoots a Red and Green light beacon in the sky.
The location of the Reaper's Chest can be seen on the Map Table at all times.

The Reaper's Chest is cursed with the Reaper's Mark, causing its location to be tracked on a Map Table indicated by a red Reaper's Mark map marker. If the Reaper's Chest spawns on a shipwreck or is dug up, it will emit a swirling beacon of Red and Green light. This beacon will persist even after it is picked up and will follow it wherever it goes. The high value and visibility of the Reaper's Bounty will make players transporting them easy targets.

Where to find

The Reaper's Chest can be found from the following sources:


Reaper's Chests can be sold to The Servant of the Flame at The Reaper's Hideout for Doubloons and Reaper's Bones Reputation and Emissary Value (if sailing as a Reaper's Bones Emissary). Reaper's Chests offer higher Reputation gains for Reaper's Bones Emissaries than other Treasure.

The following is the reward chart for the sold Reaper's Chest:

  • Reaper's Chest can be caught with a Harpoon.
