Sea of Thieves – How to free Otis
In the exciting Monkey Island update of Sea of Thieves, a whole gang of familiar faces has set sail with the crew. We’re talking about the legendary Guybrush Threepwood, the infamous Captain LeChuck, and more. Now, in the midst of all these big names, there’s one face I couldn’t help but recognize—good ol’ Otis, locked away in the Mêlée Island jail. Naturally, being the merciful soul that I am, I set out on a mission to free the man. Little did I know, it wouldn’t be a walk in the park.
Okay, let’s get down to business. Otis and his trusty companion, Captain Coco (a coconut with a carved face—no, I don’t make this stuff up), are the only residents of the Mêlée Island jail. Now, call me sentimental, but I find it pretty harsh to keep anyone behind bars, even if they’re a coconut. So, if you want to complete all The Journey to Mêlée Island commendations, you’ll have to put in a little effort to set Otis free.
Step one: Get yourself the Chef’s Uniform
This means gathering up a whopping 45 Pieces o’ Eight. Once you’ve got them, you can proudly call yourself the Chef’s assistant. This is where things get interesting—you’re gonna have to cook the stew for the Scum Bar. Don’t worry, you won’t actually have to taste it. Phew!
Once you’ve slipped into your fancy Chef’s Uniform and worked your culinary magic on the stew, you’ll find a juicy piece of meat sticking out of the pot. Grab it, but don’t head straight to the jail. Instead, sneak through the alley behind the church and keep an eye out for a skeleton guard enjoying their break. Oh, and don’t be alarmed by the pack of Piranha Poodles and the empty food bowl nearby. Just casually place that meat in the bowl.
Now, it’s snack time for those hungry pups. Watch as they go after the skeleton guard with a vengeance. While they’re causing mayhem, snatch the Gunpowder Gummies conveniently left on the bench. But don’t forget—before heading to the jail, swing by the General Store for some Gunpowder Fuses. Make sure you’ve got enough Pieces o’ Eight in your treasure chest though, ’cause you’ll need them.
Earn your gold star in the Prison Break commendation
Alright, we’re finally at the home stretch. Here’s how to earn your gold star in the Prison Break commendation. Take one of those Gunpowder Gummies and gently place it in the lock of Otis’ cell. Want to make it really exciting? Go ahead and attach a fuse to it, then take a few steps back (not too far, though—you don’t want to miss the action). Get your lantern ready, light the fuse, and stand back as the lock dramatically explodes, setting Otis free!
Now, brace yourself for a treacherous twist—Otis decides to leave his faithful companion, Captain Coco, behind. I know, I know, it’s a shocker. But guess what? This unfortunate turn of events actually works in your favor. It’ll give you the opportunity to earn the Guided Tour commendation. So, wave goodbye to Captain Coco and get ready to embark on a brand new adventure.
