Sea of Thieves FishBeard Error Code

The Fishbeard error in Sea of Thieves has been pretty common a few hours ago, with some other people still experiencing it. Rare hasn’t detailed what exactly Fishbeard is, but it would seem that it pops up when the servers are overcrowded. There’s likely not much you can do about it, just keep trying, and you’ll come through eventually.

GreyBeard Error Message

We don’t know exactly what the GreyBeard error is all about, because Rare hasn’t come out with what it is. It could be something going wrong with the matchmaking, but we can’t say for sure. However, according to the Sea of Thieves Twitter, they’re aware of the issue and they’re working on it, so a fix should be coming soon.

CinnamonBeard & BronzeBeard Error Code in Sea of Thieves

The CinnamonBeard error message in Sea of Thieves, as well as the BronzeBeard one, means that you couldn’t be connected to the game. Here is the fix that Rare recommends: First, hit the Guide button on your controller, then highlight Sea of Thieves. Press the menu button on your controller, go to Quit, then hit A. From there, re-launch the game from either the Pins, Recent, or My Games & Apps sections. Go back into the game, and everything should be back to normal.

Stuck in Searching for Crew Screen in Sea of Thieves

A number of players have run into the issue of being stuck in the Searching for Crew, aka Recruiting a Crew screen. This despite the fact that they already have a full crew ready to go; the matchmaking just keeps failing. This is likely an issue with the serves, and, as such, there’s probably nothing you can do to help. You’ll have to be patient and persistent until Rare resolves the issue, or you manage to push through.

Sea of Thieves Errors – AshBeard & AvocadoBeard

AvocadoBeard and AshBeard errors are tangentially related. If you get the AshBeard error message, that means that you aren’t signed into Xbox Live. Make sure you connect to it, sign in, and then retry.

AvocadoBeard, on the other hand, means that you don’t have Xbox Live Gold. Check your subscription and update it if necessary, then try again.

KiwiBeard Error in Sea of Thieves

The KiwiBeard error code has several potential causes. The first possibility is that the servers are closed. If that’s the case, just wait for them to come back up. Another possible reason for this error message is that you have more than one gamertag that’s signed into your console. You’ll have to sign out all gamertags that you’re not using to play the game. After you do that, try to launch the game again.

AlabasterBeard, AllmondBeard, CyanBeard Sea of Thieves

All three of these errors have the same issue behind them. Namely, your connection to the game or Xbox Live has been either disrupted or lost. Go to Settings, then to Network, and check the network status of your console.

LapisBeard & DaffodilBeard

Both of these error codes have the same cause; unfortunately, it’s pretty nebulous. According to Rare, this means that something has gone wrong on their side. They’ll fix it as soon as possible, so be patient.

Sea of Thieves Error Code BeigeBeard

The cause for the Beigebeard error code is pretty simple – your game client is out of date. The fix is equally easy. Just check for updates, bring the client up to speed, and you should be good to go from there.

LavenderBeard Error in SoT

There are several potential causes for this error message. It’s either your antivirus or firewall settings messing with the game, or the proxy servers or some other network management tool messing with it.

LazyBeard Error Message

This very aptly named error isn’t really an error at all. What happened is that the game removed you from the game session due to your inactivity. It’s pretty clear what the required “fix” is.
