The Wraith Cannonball is a type of Cursed Cannonball in Sea of Thieves. Wraithballs are more powerful than regular Cannonballs, effectively acting like small Gunpowder Barrels when they hit any Ships. A hit Wraithball does splash damage to the ship, leaving several holes in the Hull and rocking the ship like a Blunderbomb at the same time. Wraithballs emit a ghostly green smoke similar to Green Cursed Cannonballs from the barrel of a Cannon when loaded, and appear as shrieking green wraiths when fired.

Where to Find


Wraith Cannonballs are used as ammunition for loading up and shooting with Cannons. A Wraith Cannonball needs to be loaded inside an empty Cannon before it can be used as ammunition. Wraith Cannonballs emit a green ghostly smoke akin to Green Cursed Cannonballs from the cannon when loaded. Once a cannon is loaded, the player can manually aim the cannon with Directional keys and then shoot the projectile with the Primary Use key. As the fired cannonball's firing trajectory and arc is influenced by the angle of the Cannon and the sailing speed of the Ship, hitting targets with cannonballs requires some practice.

Due to the rarity of Wraith Cannonballs, they are best saved for critical moments where shots fired are almost guaranteed to land. Due to their incredible damage and high rarity, crews rarely expect enemy players to use Wraith Cannonballs on them, making them a highly lethal surprise.
