Sea of Thieves: CinnamonBeard, BronzeBeard, GreyBeard error codes and how to fix them

Sea of Thieves is off to a stormy start for some players, with many reporting beard errors.

We saw various beard errors pop up during the alpha and beta tests, and the solutions to fixing the majority of them is usually pretty simple.

The most common at the moment are CinnamonBeard, BronzeBeard and FishBeard error codes but there's a few others you should know about. We've listed them all below with help on how to fix them.

And if you're just getting started in Sea of Thieves, here's our advice on how to get on your ship and start quests.

CinnamonBeard, BronzeBeard error code

This seems to be a simple case of not being able to connect to Sea of Thieves. Basically, you need to retry by doing the following:

  • Press the Guide Button on your controller
  • Highlight Sea of Thieves
  • Press the Menu Button (to the right of the Guide Button on your controller)
  • Highlight "Quit" and press A
  • Re-launch Sea of Thieves from your Pins, Recent or My Games & Apps areas of your console
  • Navigate the menu and join a game as usual

GreyBeard error code

Rare hasn't yet detailed the GreyBeard error code but players are suggesting it's to do with matchmaking. Keep an eye out for a solution soon.

FishBeard / AlmondBeard / TrimmedBeard error codes

FishBeard, AlmondBeard and TrimmedBeard errors still haven't been identified by Rare either, but the developer suggests if you're coming up against this problem you should try playing solo for now until it's fixed.

LazyBeard error code

You've been kicked from the game due to lack of activity. Rejoin to start playing again.

You don't have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, or your Xbox Live Gold subscription has ran out. It's time to pay up to play online.

This is an issue with Anti Virus or your Firewall settings so you might have to adjust accordingly.
