The hotfix returned loot randomization to pre 1.1 status but has not addressed the reload loot glitch.
Sea of Thieves’ new battle pass schedule goes live on January 28th. Players can now earn Renown, “a new progression metric that isn’t wholly dependent on handing in loot.” The new Plunder Pass, the premium pass, is purchasable for the equivalent of $10 USD premium currency. This premium currency can also be obtained for free through Renown progression and from defeating a rare new skeleton type.
