How to fix Strawberrybeard error code in Sea of Thieves

Not as sweet as the name implies.

Sea of Thieves has an array of game-themed error codes that are all associated with different problems that users might face. They use these keywords (typically a color or fruit with the word beard after it) to help identify the source of a problem, making it easier to resolve. One of the less common error codes that players see is the Strawberrybeard error.

According to the Sea of Thieves website, this error usually shows up for players during maintenance downtime or some other external network error. In these situations, there is nothing the player can do to fix the problem—they simply need to wait for the servers to be available.

  • Update 1.6.22: According to Downdetector, many players are reporting getting the Strawberrybeard error upon initial login. This might be related to the issue they are having that forced them to disable achievement notifications, but this is not confirmed. A possible fix if you are currently experiencing this issue is to simply try to login again. Otherwise, follow the steps below, especially the instructions on how to run the wsreset command.

However, the page also states that the error can occasionally be caused by network issues on the client's side (the player's home network). For these situations, the most frequent cause is the Antivirus and Firewalls blocking the game from connecting to the servers.

Since this error can be caused by a wide range of issues, there is no specific troubleshooting solution. However, most players can rectify the issue by following these steps.

  1. Check the Sea of Thieves Server Status. If any issues are reported, this is most likely the cause of the error.
  2. When logging in to the servers, be sure to select Allow if prompted by your Firewall or Antivirus.
  3. Manually change the settings in your router and computer firewalls or antivirus to allow Sea of Thieves to access the internet.
  4. If you're on PC, force close Sea of Thieves, the Xbox App, and the Windows Store. From your Windows search bar, type in wsreset and select the option to run the command. This will reset the Windows Store. Open the Windows Store, then the Xbox App, then the game (in that order) and try to connect again.
  5. If none of the options above work, contact the Sea of Thieves Support Team by creating a new ticket.
