Sea of Thieves, but never before has he seen one turn into a rocket ship – until now.

The popular streamer had been playing Apex Legends throughout the course of February, but now he seems to be back to his old tricks – stealing prized Athena Chests from other crews across the seven seas. 

Summit might have built a reputation for hilariously stealing loot right from under the nose of others, but after sinking a Skeleton Ship to a point where it looked ready to be looted with ease… Little did he know that a very unexpected surprise was waiting to happen.

Summit1g is a master of stealing loot and bamboozling players in Sea of Thieves.

This type of Galleon can be seen dotted around the Sea of Thieves map, giving online players an opportunity to battle against a pirate crew and take their loot away from them. 

After taking out all of the skeletons and hitting the boat with a bunch of cannonballs, it started to sink. With nobody left on board, Summit’s team spun their ship into a better position and prepared to plunder the vessel in the hopes of some incredible treasure. 

However, the closer that they got, the more they started to realized that this particular Skeleton Ship wasn’t about to sit around and wait for them to loot it.

“Where’s that ship going?” a teammate said, before it left the group of players stunned and took soared high into the air like a rocket. 

It all happened so quickly that Summit actually missed what had just happened. “Did it just fly?” Summit said. “What happened? I took my eyes off it for one second. “

As the ship was “in orbit” – as the team put it – they hoped that the game would have leave behind the loot for their troubles. Unfortunately for them, there weren’t any chests to be claimed in the water.

This is not the first bug that Summit1g and his teammates have experienced with Skeleton Ships in Sea of Thieves. The former CS:GO streamer once landed on top of one and destroyed it without firing a single shot, as it completely disappeared. 

Even then, the loot stayed behind. Not this time, though.
