Loot or plunder consists of objects (weapons, clothes, ammunition, gold, tonics, etc.) that might be dropped by a pirate's enemy or enemy ship. These items are then available to be picked up after the battle.

Finding Loot

After defeating an enemy, the pirate may be rewarded with either:

Loot Pouch

Loot Chest

Skull Chest

There are also loot drops you get from Cannon Defense, Fishing, Sailing and in the El Patron Boss Battle.

They will contain a number of items that can be added to the player's inventory. Loot Chests will usually contain higher quality items compared to pouches, while Skull Chests contain the best and rarest items.

The pirate can select which looted items to take or leave - or click "Take It All!". Select individual items by either double-clicking on them OR by dragging them to your inventory. Click the Red X once you're done taking your pick of the rewards.

If your pirate's inventory is full of a particular type of item, the new item will remain in the loot container. The pirate will then either have to make room for the item by deleting something else, or leave it behind.

Loot containers sport a skull Loot Rating to indicate an overall quality of the items found, ranging from 1-5 Skulls & Crossbones.

Game Notes:

  • A pirate may not receive any loot if they did not contribute significant damage to an enemy.
  • Sometimes an enemy leaves no loot at all. Don't be disappointed.
  • Healers also get loot if pirates they heal defeat an enemy.
  • The Legend of Pirates Online added an option where a pirate can simply press the ESC to close the loot container without having to click the Red X to close it out.
  • In July 2020, The Legend of Pirates Online added a Trash Bin at the top of each Loot Container. Clicking this the Loot Container will close out completely as opposed to leaving it until it times out. If all pirates who earned the container click the Trash Bin, the container disappears from view. This feature was to help clean up containers stacking on top of each other near commonly attacked enemies. It is only for land-based enemies.

Types of Loot

Holiday Loot Containers

In the The Legend of Pirates Online, as part of their Twelve Days Celebration event for 2019, TLOPO introduced three new "winter" variants of loot. In 2020, Haunted versions were introduced for the Hollowed Woods event.

These special containers take the place of normal loot during the Winter and Halloween events, and while they had all new looks and sound effects, they hold the same contents as the normal containers and provided no improvement on loot found. This was a purely cosmetic change for the duration the event.

Game Notes

  • "Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for sure what enemies carry the various types of loot available throughout the Caribbean. Both Jolly Roger and the EITC took control of a large host of the weapons and distributed them throughout their forces on every island of the Caribbean. The only way to discover what is out there is to engage as many enemies in battle as you can. The most valuable and dangerous weapon could come from the most surprising of places. Keep exploring and you will find some new weapons in no time!"--Jordan from Pirates of the Caribbean Online Member Services
  • As of the 5th April 2018, the TLOPO team increased the rate at which Legendary Cursed Blades will drop, saying "Please note that they will still be very hard to obtain, just not impossibly hard"
  • A Loot Chest can give a Famed or even a Legendary weapon on rare occasions, but a Loot Skull Chest gives the highest chance to find one.
  • On the rarest occasions, a Loot Pouch may give a Famed weapon if you're lucky!
  • When you get loot if you drag your mouse over the "Take It All" button a message will appear saying "...And Give Nothing Back!", which is a reference to a famous quote of Joshamee Gibbs and Jack Sparrow.
