You can now find Cannon Rowboats on island beaches throughout the Sea of Thieves! You can use these tools of destruction to take on deadly Skeleton Ships and even a pirate-helmed Galleon if you are skilled enough.
Not only can you take on threats from the Cannon Rowboat, but you can also dock it to the back of your ship for an extra cannon!
What is a Cannon Rowboat
The Cannon Rowboat is a rowboat with a cannon mounted to the front! You can load the cannon on the rowboat with every type of cannonball available. As you should expect, you can load pets and pirates into the cannon as well.
There’s no need to adjust your cannon firing muscle memory. Rowboat cannons shoot just as far as a cannon on a ship or fort.
The Cannon Rowboat behaves just like a standard rowboat and has a Rowboat Chest to store supplies. Be sure to stock it full of cannonballs, Firebombs, Chainshot, and Blunderbombs!
Unlike the other rowboats, Skeleton Ships and Ghost Ships will attack you if you are in a Cannon Rowboat.
Where can you find a Cannon Rowboat
Similar to standard Rowboats and Harpoon Rowboats, you can find Cannon Rowboats randomly on island beaches.
If you see a rowboat from a distance, it could be worth your time to check it out. While it might be a standard Rowboat or Harpoon Rowboat, you could be lucky and discover a Cannon Rowboat!
Docking a Cannon Rowboat
Docking a Cannon Rowboat to your ship will give you and your crew an additional cannon to wield.
You can dock Cannon Rowboats to your ship facing either direction. To do this, face the rowboat in the direction you wish it to face before docking it to the ship.
Which direction you dock the rowboat is important as the cannon has a small angle it can swivel.
Once attached, the cannon on the rowboat will inherit the ship’s velocity and behave like the rest of the ship’s cannons when firing. You will still want to account for the ship’s speed and turning angle when you fire from the rowboat’s cannon.
