Skull & Bones: Treasure Maps – Where to find them and what rewards there are

Skull & Bones wouldn’t be a pirate game without treasure maps and of course you can find treasures of various levels of rarity. You can read about which cards are available, where you can find them and what the rewards are here.

There are a total of four different rarity levels for treasure cards, which give you different rewards:

  • Contract cards
  • General maps
  • Old treasure maps
  • Legendary treasure maps
  • Since Skull & Bones was only released recently, not all treasure maps are known yet. We will continue to update this guide. Not all German terms are known yet. We therefore mostly use English here.

    These cards are the most sought after. You can only get them by completing PvP and PvE events. They are intended exclusively for the best pirates and challenge you.

    How do I get Legendary Treasure Maps? We will explain the process to you using an example for the launch of the game:

    Take part in a world event like the PvP Cutthroat Cargo Hunt. Once you have joined the event, you will be marked as a target. This means that other players can attack and sink you. So be on your guard.

    The legendary treasure map will be floating in the water here – collect it and activate it. It’s best to leave the PvP area beforehand.

    One of the outposts that legendary cards can lead you to.

    Danger: When this legendary card is active, an outpost you need to head to will be marked with a skull. You can then only invest there. All other outposts are blocked. You can’t fast travel either!

    Once you have arrived at the marked outpost, start your treasure hunt with the tips mentioned above: texts and images on the map. For example, look for certain trees, strangely shaped rocks or pieces of furniture.

    If you are close enough to your treasure, a red light appears – you have made it. Now dig for your reward. There are high quality and rare items for legendary cards.

    Currently known legendary treasure maps:

  • Name not known, found in the PvP event Cutthroat Cargo Hunt
  • As more cards become known, we will expand the list. In order to recover the treasure maps and raise the treasures, you definitely need a ship. In order to get your initial sloop suitable for the high seas, you will need a lot of acacia wood.
