CinnamonBeard Error in Sea of Thieves

Troubleshooting steps to resolve the CinnamonBeard Error in Sea of Thieves.


People who want to play Sea of Thieves are finding out that the pirate life can be a rough go. Besides the constant threat of a cannonball upside the head, you’ve got pesky error codes to worry about that can prevent you from ever setting sail. One such error is CinnamonBeard, and many players who are trying to jump into Sea of Thieves are staring it in the face.

CinnamonBeard Error in Sea of Thieves

There are quite a few errors being encountered right now. There’s GreyBeard, KiwiBeard, BronzeBeard, and TrimmedBeard to name a few. Well, you can add CinnamonBeard to that list, but thankfully it is just an extension of BronzeBeard. In fact, they have the same steps on the Sea of Thieves support page.

CinnamonBeard & BronzeBeard

We were unable to connect you to the game. Please do 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

Clearly those steps are meant for Xbox players, but the idea seems to be to close your game and try again. If you’re on PC, closing the Sea of Thieves app should be easy for you. I’d suggest also closing the Xbox companion app and the Microsoft Store. If you want to be truly hardcore, you can reboot your PC, but I’m by no means a support specialist.

Before you go crazy troubleshooting, though, be sure to check the Sea of Thieves Twitter account. They’ll often talk about ongoing server issues, such as those being experienced at launch. If that’s the case, you’re best to just wait for those issues to clear up instead of initiating any changes to your system.

Now that you understand the CinnamonBeard error, take this downtime to read more by visiting the Sea of Thieves guide collection on Shacknews.
