Ahoy there, mateys! In this guide, we'll be diving deep into the treacherous waters of the "Cutthroat Secrets" quest in Skull and Bones. This story mission tasks you with helping the ruthless pirate captain, Scurlock, by rooting out a conniving traitor within his ranks. Prepare to follow a cryptic treasure map, decipher hidden clues, and ultimately confront the scurvy dog who's been double-crossing Scurlock. But beware, this adventure throws some navigational challenges your way, so raise the anchor and set sail for a thrilling hunt that will secure your reputation as a trustworthy pirate (and earn you some sweet rewards along the way)

Ahoy, scallywags! Prepare to sharpen your cutlass and hone your navigation skills. This guide will lead you through the thrilling "Cutthroat Secrets" quest in Skull and Bones. Here's how to expose the traitor and earn Scurlock's favor:

Step 1: Charting the Course

  1. Accept the Quest: Set sail for Sainte-Anne and speak with the notorious pirate captain, Scurlock. He'll offer the "Cutthroat Secrets" contract, tasking you with eliminating a traitor. Accept the quest and receive the **Agent's Clues map**.
  2. Navigate to Sunken Goldmine: Open your map and locate the **Sunken Goldmine outpost**. This island is situated on the western side of the Coast of Africa, slightly above the level of Sainte-Anne. You can either sail directly there or fast travel if the option is available.

Step 2: Unearthing the Secret

  1. Land Ahoy!: Once at Sunken Goldmine, disembark your ship and head towards the prominent stone structure directly in front of you.
  2. Dig Deep: Equip your trusty shovel and approach the base of the stone. You'll see an interaction prompt – **dig** here to unearth the **Agent's Stash**.
  3. Deciphering the Clue: Inside the stash, you'll find a cryptic map fragment. This reveals the location of the traitor's warship. **Tip:** The map should be relatively easy to interpret, simply open your main map and pinpoint the marked location.

  2. Showdown at Sea: Engage the traitor in a fierce naval battle. You may encounter other factions like Privateers attacking the traitor's ship – use this to your advantage or eliminate them first, the choice is yours!
  3. Victory at Last: Sink the traitor's ship to complete the "Cutthroat Secrets" quest. Return to Scurlock in Sainte-Anne to claim your well-deserved rewards.

Bonus Tips

  • Throughout the quest, keep an eye on your map and utilize the in-game waypoints for easier navigation.
