One of the many commendations you can complete as you bury and dig up treasure is the Heir of the Trickster commendation.

To complete this commendation, you must set traps by burying primed Gunpowder Barrels. To do this, you will first need to get your hands on some Gunpowder Barrels.

Heir of the Trickster Commendation

To complete this commendation, you will first need some Gunpowder Barrels. You’ll want to bury a total of ten to complete the commendation. You don’t have to bury all ten during one session.

You can find Gunpowder Barrels randomly on islands or amongst Barrels of Plenty throughout the Sea of Thieves.

Though, you have the best chance of finding Gunpowder Barrels at inactive Skeleton Forts. You can easily find five or more Gunpowder Barrels at one Skeleton Fort.

Once you have your Gunpowder Barrels, place them on soft ground and completely bury them. You can bury them right there at the Skeleton Fort if you like.

Or, you can take them with you and use them to set traps with your buried treasure!

Once you bury a total of 10, you will complete the Heir of the Trickster commendation.
