From this chapter of the Sea of Thieves guide, the you will learn how to catch snakes - delivering them may be an objective of missions received from The Merchant Alliance.
The snakes in Sea of Thieves are the third objective of quests commissioned by the Merchant Alliance faction. They occur randomly on different islands. They are caught very differently from chickens and pigs, but we will also need a basket to get them. If we get too close to snakes, they will spit or bite us with venom. You have to put the cage near the snake and then start playing some musical instrument. When the snake falls into a trance, it can be moved to the basket.
Snake types according to their value in gold:
- Red Striped Snake - 10 gold with no mission and 100 gold with a mission;
