Twitch Drops

What are Twitch Drops?
Twitch Drops are rewards given to people who view Twitch streams. So if you have linked your Twitch account to your Xbox Live account through the Sea of Thieves website, once you watch one of our selected streamers or the official Sea of Thieves stream during the given time-frame, you will receive an in-game cosmetic item!

When is the next event taking place and what will I be rewarded?
Please either visit for the latest details surrounding our Twitch Drops or proceed to and from the 'All Campaigns' section click our latest event from the 'Open Campaigns' section.
