Jaryd ‘Sea of Thieves has to offer and quite often can be seen fighting to take it from others, but this might have been his luckiest break yet. 

The popular variety streamer has been grinding his way through a number of different quests and challenges in the pirate game during the course of November, showing fans how to easily complete the Fort of the Damned mission and access all of the loot that comes with it. 

However, during a broadcast on November 10, he completely avoided all of the tough steps of the mission and was able to get his hands on all of the rewards anyway. But, how did he pull it off? 

RareThe Sea of Thieves ‘Fort of the Damned’ quest was added to the game on October’s monthly update.

Summit and his teammates had been courting an enemy ship for quite some time after seeing that they had completed the Fort of the Damned challenge, but not collected the loot rewards at the end. The mission allows players to take on a flock of Shadow of Fate skeletons at the themed location, where they are pitted against the boss, Ghost of Graymarrow. 

While this all sounds exciting, there are some really time-consuming preparation steps before you even reach this stage – including lighting statues and obtaining a Ritual Skull, which ultimately starts the mission. 

Once the boss has been taken down, he drops a Fort of the Damned Key and teams can use that to open up a vault full of loot. However, after running into summit’s squad, an opposing team panicked and decided to flee the area – leaving that key behind later in the stream, hidden.

He said: “Do you really think that they hid the key on this island?” This was answered by a teammate, who said there was “no way of knowing”. Really, that was accurate as well. 

While the chances of them finding the key, or even knowing that it had been hidden, on the island was extremely slim, possible to the point where the team thought it was impossible, somehow summit stumbled across it. 

With a beaming smile on his face and a crew of players shocked about the discovery, it was clear what they were going to do next… Head right for the vault. 

After sailing towards the Fort of the Damned, there wasn’t the usual hustle and bustle that this quest is supposed to create for players. It was a derelict island with a huge vault of loot, just waiting for the lucky streamer to come along with his friends and take it for all it had. 

They opened it up, exploded the barrels and walked away with all sorts of valuables – including Athena chests, Reaper chests, and more. It was like winning the Sea of Thieves lottery!

Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
