As you sail the sea, you’ll encounter various types of water, including rough water during storms or black water from the ink of a Kraken. One of the most important types of water you should be aware of is red water! If you see red water, stop your current heading and turn around quickly! If you continue to sail into the red water, you will soon find your ship sinking to the bottom of the ocean!

What does red water mean?

Red water in the Sea of Thieves, also known as the Red Sea, marks the world’s edge. While your ship won’t immediately take damage upon sailing into the Red Sea, the further you sail into it, the more holes the Red Sea will create in your vessel.

If you continue to sail into the Red Sea, your ship will suffer so much damage that it can no longer stay afloat, and your crew will eventually teleport to an Outpost.

Any treasure you had on board will return to the edge of the Red Sea so any pursuing ship can safely retrieve it.
